One of the most successful series to ever run, Game of Thrones has everything that you need from a successful TV show. We list some of the best beards in Game of Thrones, it seems essential for the men to not be clean-shaven!
Some of these beards are not that impressive if based on their length or fullness but we need to celebrate them all. They might be a little on the patchy side (Jon Snow) and not technically a full beard but not everyone can own Tormund Giantsbane’s perfect genes. Be sure to add some of your favourite Game of Thrones beards in the comments box, we know that we missed a few out.
Karl Drago, the warrior leader of a vast tribe of horseman in Essos has opted for a strong braided beard.
