Seven Things You Didn’t Know About Game of Thrones

Chris Norton December 26, 2013 0


Maybe we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves with all the ‘Game of Thrones’ news and articles lately, but we’re getting closer to Season 4 and we’re excited. The Season 4 premiere airs this Spring so we’ll keep the ‘GOT’ momentum rolling as we move closer to episode 1.

Today, we’ll show you ‘7 Things You Didn’t Know about ‘Game of Thrones”. There are some pretty interesting little facts that escape us while we’re watching the show.

Check them out…

1.) ‘Game of Thrones’ was supposed to be a movie – Author George R.R. Martin was first approached by producers to turn his ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’ series into a movie. Martin realized too much of the book would have to be cut out so he agreed to make it a TV Series.

2.) Peter Dinklage was David Benioff’s vision for Tyrion Lannister. The minute Benioff was tabbed a producer of the show he called Dinklage.

3.) The cast members don’t read the books. Knowing George R.R. Martin could kill any one of them off at any minute the actors choose not to read the books because it may affect how they approach the character.

4.) Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey are BFFs in real life. A far cry from the actual show in which Tyrion and Cersei are constantly battling. It was actually Dinklage who recommended Headey for the role of Cersei to the producers.

5.) There is a Dothraki dictionary. Producers of the show hired a man named David Peterson who created the Dothraki language with over 3,000 words and grammar rules. Incredible.

6.) The Iron Throne took two months to make. In the show, it took ages and in real life it took what seems like ages for a chair to be made. It’s made of wood and heated swords.

7.) D.B. Weiss and David Benioff know what’s going to happen. Apparently, George R.R. Martin told the show’s producers what’s going to happen when it’s all said and done.

I can’t wait for 93 days for the show to begin. Season 4 is going to be awesome.
