Game of Thrones, based on books by George R.R. Martin, is one of the most successful TV shows in the past ten years and is still one of the most talked about on the internet. It is a fantasy drama show set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos and has a wide range of characters and families that it follows across these lands, many of which have the ambition of having the crown and sitting on the thrown. It is known for, particular in its early seasons, as having surprising and shocking storylines which kept fans coming back to it. The show has finished now but there are rumours of spin-offs but nothing has been confirmed as yet.
Fun facts about the show:
- There is an unaired pilot of it somewhere
- George R.R. Martin had a cameo in the first episode
- Charles Dance found Lord Tywin’s treatment of his son so appalling that he kept apologizing to Peter Dinklage in-between takes.
- When making an ideal cast, Martin and producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss had only two definite actors in mind. These being Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Sean Bean (Eddard)
- After filming the 3rd episode had ended, Sophie Turner (Sansa) adopted the dog that played Sansa’s direwolf Lady.
