Mark Stanley is a British actor. He graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2010 with a string of theatrical credits to his name. Game of Thrones marks his first television appearance.
Because different actors often have vastly different filming schedules, Mark Stanley has frequently filled in for other roles during cast table-reads of the script at the production team's home office in Belfast. He has table-read Jon Snow's lines opposite Rose Leslie (Ygritte), and writer Bryan Cogman said that Stanley also performed a terrific Kraznys mo Nakloz.
