When we talk about the cast of GOT, there are many characters who became the most admired or the ones who played the best role, but there were also some underrated GOT characters whose role made them the heroes that they ought to be.

This is one of those characters which displays an overweight, innocent and a non-violent guy who is disinherited from his family to join the Night’s watch and also ends up being a close friend of Jon Snow. Him being a book worm and less of a warrior is what makes his family give up on him, but as the season progresses we tend to see a courageous man hiding behind the innocent cloak. For instance, the incidence where his affection and bravery helps him draw the strength within him to kill a white walker.
His love for books not just helps him gain the knowledge but also benefit Jon Snow in finding the dragon-glass to kill the white walkers and Jorah Mormont cure his disease.
His selfless motives and loyalty is what makes his character a remarkable one in the show but he is still one of the most underrated GOT characters.
This is a character of an exiled knight who is known to help Daenerys Targaryen to adapt to her new life in Dothraki. His constant support and advice is what helps Daenerys to have the courage in becoming the Khaleesi of the Dothrakis.
He was known to play the role of a spy to Lord Varys initially, but his growing respect and affection towards Khaleesi makes him refrain from the same. His willingness to live and protect Khaleesi is what inspired Tarly help him free from his pain. Though not considered as much of a hero, his unconditional love and his faithfulness towards Khaleesi is what admires the audience and makes his character, a unique one.
His character in GOT is that of an uncanny mysterious man who trains Arya Stark and help her safe passage to Braavos. He carries a serene posture throughout the season under which he hides a dangerous face. Though he introduces himself as the Lorathi criminal, is actually an unpredictable faceless who protects and trains Arya to accomplish her reprisal.
His manner of addressing is what grabbed the audience attention. Considering the incidence where he calls himself ‘no one’ or ‘the man has no name’ made a whole new path to the show. He is courtly gracious in an unsettling way.
His masked expression and stern behavior is what makes the character beautiful.
Sandor Clegane (The Hound)
Hound is a character of a kings-guard with an ugly facial scar that gives him the scary look. His role in initial seasons is that of a bodyguard to king Joffrey who obeys every command of the monstrous king. Though being the guy who follows every command there are instances which show him to be less of a cruel man; for there is an instance where he not only helps Sansa to rescue from the mob but also kidnaps Arya to help her get back to her family.
His transformation with each season, from that of a rough guy to the guy who has a soft and tender corner hidden under the tough face is admirable.
