Harry Lloyd, who played Viserys Targaryen for his short spell on the show, is actually the great-great-great-grandson of Victorian writer Charles Dickens, who is perhaps one of the greatest writers of all time.
Bastards wear their normal house colours, except inverted, therefore Jon Snow would wear a white wolf on a grey background, perfectly represented by his direwolf, ghost.
Game of Thrones related baby names have shot up recently, in 2012, Arya was one of the most popular baby names for girls whereas Khaleesi was a common choice with over 160 parents. Scary!
Alfie Allen (Who plays Theon Greyjoy) is the brother of pop singer Lily Allen, who wrote this song about him, in which he is played by a disturbing puppet who does nothing but smoke drugs and play video-games.
The horse heart that Daenerys ate during this unforgettable scene was actual a giant mass of gummy bears. I think if I was in Emilia’s shoes I would’ve thrown up more than she did.
Actor Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey on the show, stated that after his role in Game of Thrones has finished, he’ll be taking a break from acting to pursue a different career path.
The show is broadcasted in a grand total of 48 different countries, a number which not many other TV shows can compete with. Very popular indeed.
This may not be too interesting to some of you, but to me personally, I enjoy this fact. Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran, actually attends a school not too far away from mine, and one of the art teachers at my school actually taught him at one point. I’m pretty impressed.
Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, not only starred alongside co-star Sean Bean in the Silent Hill sequel but is also the descendent of King Charles II of England. The bastard has royal blood, who knew?!
The battle and struggle for power that the series is essentially based around, is based on the English ‘civil war’, the War of the Roses – according to the novel’s author George R.R. Martin
Hope you enjoyed the read!:)
