Oh look — it's Littlefinger, everyone's favorite sneaky, whore-loving jackrabbit. Aidan Gillen spent his summer enjoying big-screen blockbuster fame due to a cameo in 'The Dark Knight Rises,' and he also booked a film called 'Blue Potato,' which we hear is about potatoes. He has another film, 'Calvary,' in pre-production, but he also found time in his busy schedule to 'ride' his bike in Dublin. You're doing it wrong!

Theon Greyjoy spent his summer rockin' various shades of grey. In fact, various sources spotted Alfie Allen reading the hit book '50 Shades of Grey.' (One of those statements may be inaccurate.) Here he is at a Stone Roses concert — a secret gig at Adidas Underground in London. He also worked on a London thriller flick called 'Confine,' and botched a few beheadings.

This summer, former porn actress Sibel Kekilli (Shea) lived life King's Landing style — here she is, enjoying a front row seat at the Kilian Kerner Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. She also appeared in the German film 'Die Männer der Emden.'

Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke was able to let loose at San Diego Comic Con this summer — here she is with Seth MacFarlane and co-stars Alfie Allen and Rose Leslie at the Playboy and 'True Blood' party. She also completed work on the upcoming film 'Spike Island' and booked a role in 'Overdrive,' alongside 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Sam Claflin.

Aww, see? He's not so bad once you get to know him. Here, King Joffrey Baratheon (Lannister) is seen attending the launch of an Amnesty International gig for Aung San Suu Kyi in Dublin. Gleeson hits the books when he's not torturing prostitutes, or his Uncle Tyrion — he attends Trinity College (studying philosophy and theology) in Dublin, and plans to pursue a career in academia after his stint on 'Thrones' is through.

Jon Snow abandoned the Night's Watch this summer, but for good reason — the up-and-comer will be seen in 'Silent Hill: Revelation' in 2012, and 'The Seventh Son' (alongside Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore) in 2013. He also did voice work on a 'How to Train Your Dragon' sequel, but he did find some time for fun — here he is presenting an award during Spike TV's 6th Annual 'Guys Choice Awards' at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif.

Unfortunately, Queen Cersei hasn't had the greatest summer — she filed for divorce from musician Peter Paul Loughran in July. She has a young son, so much of her downtime is spent being a mum. But apparently, she hasn't had too much of it: Headey is set to appear in the upcoming fall film 'Dredd,' and she recently completed work on the fantasy flick 'Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box.' She is seen here at a 'Game of Thrones' press conference in London.

Margaery Tyrell's season 2 screen time was limited, but due to her current engagement to King Joffrey (Err... sorry, Sansa?) we have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more of her next year. Here she is looking more Lannister than Tyrell with co-star Kit Harington, at 'Brazil Night' at the Omega House in London. But Dormer didn't spend her entire summer partying — she filmed 'A Long Way from Home,' 'Rush,' and now 'Rubicon' while on 'Thrones'-hiatus.

Damn, Osha — we didn't know you had it in you! Tena appeared in 'Bel Ami' opposite Robert Pattinson earlier this year, but she spent most of her summer rocking out with her band Molotov Jukebox. Here she is at the Summer Sundae festival at De Montfort Hall And Gardens in Leicester, UK.

The King in the North spent his summer looking damn fine. Here he is at Niketown in Hollywood, CA, just doing his thing. He will soon take on the lead role in the indie flick 'Long Nights Short Mornings,' which IMDB calls an "erotic odyssey."

Well, when she wasn't supposedly romancing Kit Harrington, Ygritte spent her downtime working on 'Now Is Good' with Dakota Fanning. Here she is, enjoying a nice glass of white wine at the Audi International Guards Polo in Egham, UK.
