Game of Thrones’ Sexiest Characters (Dead and Alive)
Dany, most commonly referred to as Khaleesi, is the classic choice for number one. With her golden hair, killer body, and supremacy over anyone who tries to cross her, she’s got our vote for the throne.
Most memorable scene: Season one’s finale, when she walks into a fire fully clothed and emerges fully naked when it’s extinguished—with three dragons.
Khal Drogo, RIP
It almost felt like the dreamy Drogo was every viewer’s sun and stars too. Though his short-lived screen time didn’t last past season one, his sexiness will live on in our memory forever.
Most memorable scene: We got a little tush view in season one when he visited Khaleesi late at night and she taught him to make love to her in something other than doggy style.
The sexiest of the Stark children in our opinion, though he doesn’t bear their name, could win over our hearts with just his hair. His face isn’t so bad either.
Most memorable scene: As one of the only virgins on the show, he finally gets it on with Ygritte (his once real-life girlfriend Rose Leslie, see No. 10 on this list) in season three and sheds light on the importance of cunnilingus.
Robb Stark, RIP
Ah, how we miss thee, Robb Stark. Thank goodness for that pre-red-wedding sex scene with Talisa when we got a glimpse of your backside in the buff.
Most memorable scene: Besides what’s listed above and the Red Wedding, when he met and fell in love with Talisa, he pretty much made us melt.
Talisa Maegyr-Stark, RIP
Ugh, another Red Wedding loss—so young, so beautiful, so pregnant! At least we had Oona Chaplin’s gorgeousness—complete with some nudity—before her brutal death.
Most memorable scene: Robb Stark: “If you don’t put some clothes on, I can’t promise I won’t attack you again.” Talisa: “Attack, attack.”
This prostitute-turned-handmaiden earns her keep with her tough attitude, fierce looks and, of course, nude scenes.
Most memorable scene: When she and Tyrion (her now secret boyfriend) met and she stripped and straddled him. [Tweet this scene!]
The fierce soon-to-be queen is not only gorgeous, she’s cutthroat, out for the throne and using everything from her breasts to her brain to earn her keep.
Most memorable scene: Outwitting Joffrey into thinking she’s just as evil—her smarts and sass have us very excited for what’s to come in season four.
Khaleesi’s right-hand man couldn’t be bad looking now, could he? Jorah is there for whatever the Mother of Dragons needs—all looking gorgeous while doing it.
Most memorable scene: The brutal murder of Dany’s smartass brother Viserys.
Perhaps the feistiest of women in Westeros, Cersei Lannister and her blonde tendrils (a wig, of course) gets our vote for beauty but slips on the list due to her evil allegiance.
Most memorable scene: When we first were getting to know the Queen, who was having secret sex with her twin brother.
The lovely Ygritte, a wildling and lover to Jon Snow, keeps herself covered up in furs but revealed her slim figure when she stripped down to bathe last season.
Most memorable scene: Coining the term “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
Raven-haired Melisandre's allegiance is with Stannis Baratheon, but it's her magic powers that keep all interested.
Most memorable scene: Well, who could forget that demon-baby birth scene?
Handmaiden (or assistant, perhaps) to Khaleesi, Missandei came into play during the Unsullied exchange. While her hair and face have us swooning, her smarts (she can speak 19 languages) really get us.
Most memorable scene: She hasn’t done much but translate—and frankly, that’s enough.
Oh, Tyrion Lannister, no matter your height, we find you sexy. Besides, the way you stand up to your family makes us appreciate the bad boy in you. Not to mention your faithfulness to Shae.
Most memorable scene: TBD season four (book readers, you know what’s coming). [Tweet this scoop!]
Brienne of Tarth
Though technically "unfeminine" (book readers claimed the actress chosen to play her was too attractive), Brienne keeps our interest thanks to her loyalty to Catelyn Stark (RIP) and respect for Jaime.
Most memorable scene: That bath scene with Jaime Lannister...
We must admit that Osha, aka Nanny McPhee to Bron and Rickon, can be a bit scary. But one can’t deny her beauty underneath it all. Also, she played Nymphadora Tonks in the Harry Potter series, gaining admirers of all ages.
Most memorable scene: Gets naked for Theon. #tonks trends on Twitter.
Yes, he’s this far down the list, even after saving Brienne from the bear. But the golden Lannister is too evil for admiration, despite his good looks and his unfortunate loss of an arm.
Most memorable scene: The bath scene with Brienne, where he admitted how he got the nickname Kingslayer.
The incestuous lovechild of Jaime and Cersei is evil at its purist form. He’s not only a murderer (RIP Ros!) but a coward too.
Most memorable scene: Doing the forever unforgivable, ordering Ned’s decapitation.
Technically, Theon and Joffrey could have tied, but Theon’s last season was just so far from sexy, he earns the last spot on our list.
Most memorable scene: Pre-castration (apologies for the reminder), that time he fingered his sister. [Tweet the entire ranking!]
