Game of Thrones isn't just the most compelling series on television, it's also the sexiest. The show's casting directors have managed to cultivate an eclectic group of multi-generational thespians who have serious acting chops and who've apparently hit the genetic lotto, too.
The characters on the show are so distractingly gorgeous, that we sometimes wish they would take a break from slitting each other's throats and just hang out on a beach sipping daiquiris. Imagine Jon Snow and Jaime Lannister playing a game of life-sized chess together, while Cersei and Tyrion get deep-tissue massages on the sand. Wouldn't you love to see a sun-drenched Khaleesi in a lounge chair flipping through a Bauhaus coffee table book, while Ygritte polishes off a fish taco?
