Trivia[]

  1. After filming his death scene, Sean Bean played football with his replica head.
  2. Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) originally auditioned for the role of Robert Baratheon.
  3. Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon) received a letter from author George R.R. Martin after the show aired, stating: "Congratulations on your marvelous performance. Everyone hates you!"
  4. According to Kit Harington (Jon Snow), his performance in the rejected pilot episode was so bad that the creators often jokingly threaten to release scenes of it on the internet if he complains too much.
  5. When Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) first met Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) he rugby tackled her to the floor of the Belfast hotel yelling "WIFEY".
  6. Charles Dance was appalled and disgusted at Lord Tywin's treatment of his son, Tyrion. He remarked that it was extremely difficult for him to mistreat a genuinely nice man like Peter Dinklage, so much so, that Dance kept apologizing to Dinklage between takes.
  7. Wilko Johnson (Ilyn Payne) retired after the second season because he was diagnosed with cancer. While Payne appears in subsequent novels, his role in the series was effectively replaced with Bronn (Jerome Flynn), who instead accompanies Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) on later missions.
  8. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) said that fans often asked her to recite the list of names Arya always recited before sleeping, the names of the people in the series who have injured her or her family, and whom she intends to kill, and to insert the fan's name into the list.
  9. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) has been nominated eight consecutive times (once for each season) for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmys. He won for the first, fifth, seventh and eighth season, setting a new record for most wins in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category for the same role.
  10. A gelatin "heart" was made for the scene in which Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) must consume a horse's heart raw. Although it was safe to eat, Clarke said it was still foul tasting enough that her facial expressions and gagging while forcing it down required no acting for the camera.
  11. There was a rumor that, prior to being cast, Lena Headey (Queen Cersei Lannister) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) were in a relationship that ended on such bad terms that each had a clause inserted into their contracts that they were never to share scenes and must remain apart on-set. Flynn has however stated this is not true, saying "We were actually in the same scene together, and the last time I saw Lena we were speaking, so I wouldn't believe everything you read, and like I said, [the media] can get pretty desperate for stories."
