10 Photos of the cast of 'Game of Thrones' from their first red carpet to the last

The final season of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones is just around the corner, and fans are pretty excited to find out exactly what will happen to the Seven Kingdoms. It seems like only yesterday that the very first episode of the very first season aired: back when Eddard Stark (spoilers) was still alive, when the realm was still flourishing in a time of peaceful summer, and when all the Stark kids were just that: kids.

Yup: things have really changed between the beginning and the end. But one thing that's changed a lot is the cast itself. Seriously, there was a time when Masie Williams was just a little kid when this show first aired, and now she's a young woman! If you want proof of just how much the cast has changed since season one back in 2011, then look no further than some of the actors and actresses below, and take a gander at their first, and last, red carpet appearances. I think you'll agree: a lot can happen in eight years.
