He's arguably best known for his role as Jojen Reed on Game Of Thrones, but what has actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster been up to since leaving the HBO series? Game Of Thrones was based off a series of acclaimed fantasy novels by author George R.R. Martin and it hooked viewers from the very beginning. The first season featured a great cast and shocking plot twists, and it soon became one of the most popular shows on TV.
Game Of Thrones' sprawling cast of characters also introduced viewers to a lot of upcoming young actors. This includes previous unknowns such as Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington, Sophia Turner, and Richard Madden (Bodyguard). It also gave juicy parts to more veteran talent, such as Charles Dance, Diana Rigg, and Jonathan Pryce.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster first appeared as Jojen Reed on Game Of Thrones during season 3. Prior to joining the show, the actor was best known for playing Liam Neeson's son Sam in 2003's Love Actually, and he also appeared in Nowhere Boy as Paul McCartney and an episode of Doctor Who. Jojen's arc on the series finds him and his sister Meera (Ellie Kendrick) accompanying Bran on his quest to go beyond the wall to find the Three-Eyed Raven. After a difficult journey, they finally reach their goal in season 4 finale "The Children," though Jojen is killed by a wight.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster has been keeping busy since departing Game Of Thrones, with his most high-profile role being in The Maze Runner trilogy alongside Dylan O'Brien. Sangster played Newt in the franchise and was considered one of the highlights of the series. Thomas Brodie-Sangster also made a cameo in J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Petty Officer Thanisson.
On TV, Sangster provides the voice for John Tracy on animated series Thunderbirds Are Go, which debuted in 2015. He played the real-life part of Rafe Sadler in the acclaimed BBC miniseries Wolf Hall, opposite Mark Rylance; Wolf Hall would win Best Miniseries or Television Film at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards. Thomas Brodie-Sangster also played deputy Whitey Winn in Netflix miniseries Godless, and in 2017 reprised the role of Sam for Red Nose Day Actually, a charity short film that acted as a sequel to Love Actually. This short reunited most of the cast, including Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, Andrew Lincoln, and Keira Knightley.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster was set to perform a voice for animated movie Mouse Guard, which has since been canceled, and will provide voiceover alongside Felicity Jones and Patrick Stewart in the upcoming animated movie Dragon Rider.
