The UK is honoring British contributions to Game of Thrones with a new stamp set featuring fan favorites from HBO’s hit fantasy series , set to go on sale later this month. Ten characters are featured in the set, including Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), along with fellow British actors Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister).

His appearance on the poster is particularly controversial as Snow appeared to die at the end of Season 5 at the hands of his brothers in the Night’s Watch.
