Intro:

Sometimes an actor is so fixed to an image by playing a popular role so
excellent over quiet a time, that you can not forget this special role, when it comes to a new role he will play. In the case of "Game of Thrones" some actors were that distinctive, one can't ever forget them. So which of the characters on the list below do you think will last the strongest in the brain while watching a new role of the related actor?

The rules for suggestions are:
No actor below 15 episodes of appearance in GoT.
No actor like Sean Bean, Diana Rigg, Peter Dinklage, because they've had so many other interesting roles, they would not really fit to the sense of this suggestion.
No actor who had too less time on screen or when he/she was always in the background.

Maise Williams
I think she may stick in the brain the most. She was the least made up (Makeup) of all of the other actors. She looked absolutely the same when she guest starred in Doctor Who.

She's already on the list. :D
She didn't have so much roles, or roles that have not been so exposed as Maisie Williams'.
She's a good candidate for sure. :D

I think a better phrasing of the question is Which "Game of Thrones" character is so enduring that you will always immediately think of it, whenever you watch its actor in any other role? 

You could use the examples of these character performances (David Alexander as George Costanza and George Reeves as Clark Kent / Superman) that were so overly enduring that the actors had a hard time finding work after. Directors thought viewers wouldn't be able to embrace them in their new role, because their signature character was so permanently embedded in viewer's mind that it detracted from the new work.

Hands Down, Hodor is most enduring GoT character Kristian Nairn will have a hard time escaping chants of "Hodor" every time he shows up on the big screen. So much, I think he will have a hard time getting cast in the first place in new projects.

I think for your poll suggestion these five are the most enduring characters that the actors will have a hard time getting fans to forget and move onto their latest role.

I also shortened the first part of the intro-text a little. Now it's better to read.
