Winterfell sur grand écran
Le 23 janvier 2015, Game of Thrones est devenue la première série à être diffusée en IMAX : pendant une semaine, deux épisodes de la saison 4, remasterisés pour l'occasion et agrémentés d'un aperçu de la 5, ont en effet été projetés dans 150 salles des Etats-Unis.

"Game of Thrones" plus fort que "Les Soprano"
En juin 2014, la chaîne câblée américaine HBO annonce que Game of Thrones devient officiellement la série la plus "populaire" de son histoire. En rassemblant 18,4 millions de téléspectateurs de moyenne (une audience obtenue en agrégeant les visionnages directs, décalés, à l'antenne et en ligne), la série vole la vedette aux Soprano, jusque-là détentrice du record depuis 2002 avec 18, 2 millions.

Le manuel pour apprendre le Dothraki
Le linguiste David J. Peterson est le créateur officiel de la langue Dothraki pour la série Game of Thrones. Il en fait profiter les fans avec le livre "Living Language Dothraki: A Conversational Language Course" (en librairie le 7 octobre 2014), véritable manuel destiné à ceux qui veulent apprendre le dialecte de Khal Drogo et de la "Khaleesi" Daenerys Targaryen.

Catelyn Stark et Daenerys recastées
Si Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) et, à un degré moindre, Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark) font partie des visages marquants de la saga Game of Thrones, à l’origine, leurs deux rôles étaient tenus par deux autres actrices. Dans le pilote tourné par Thomas McCarthy en 2009, ce sont effectivement l’actrice britannique Tamzin Merchant (vue dans Les Tudors) et la comédienne américaine Jennifer Ehle (aperçue dans Zero Dark Thirty) qui incarnent ces deux personnages. Pour le rôle de Catelyn Stark, d’après le site Hitfix.com, la décision de changer d’interprète a été prise peu de temps après le premier tournage. En ce qui concerne celui de Daenerys, si l’on en croit le Chicago Tribune, c’est l’actrice elle-même qui a décidé d’abandonner le projet.

Le Dothraki, langue créée pour la série
Si les téléspectateurs ne comprennent pas un traitre mot de ce que disent Khal Drogo et son peuple, il ne faut pas cependant croire que les scénaristes ont enchaîné les borborygmes au fil des séquences. Pour que les scènes avec les Dothrakis soient réussies, HBO a effectivement engagé un expert dans la création des langues, pour que les hommes et femmes de Dothrak aient bel et bien leur propre dialecte. Eminent membre de la Language Creation Society, David J. Peterson a créé, de son propre aveu, une langue "qui possède son propre son, avec un vocabulaire de plus de 1800 mots et une réelle structure grammaticale". Pour la saison 3, Peterson a également développé le dialecte valyrian à partir des quelques mots imaginés par George RR Martin pour ses romans.

George RR Martin trop longtemps maudit ?
Romancier adulé à travers le monde (plus de 15 millions de livres vendus en 2011, selon The New Yorker), George RR Martin, l’homme à l’origine de la saga Game of Thrones, a aussi travaillé pour la télévision dans les années 1980. Engagé en qualité de scénariste par l’équipe de production de La Cinquième Dimension, remake de La Quatrième dimension, il ne fera néanmoins que passer. Il signe cependant cinq scripts en 1986. Entre 1989 et 1990, il rejoint l’équipe de La belle et la bête… mais la série est annulée à la fin de sa 3ème saison. En 1995 et 2000, il a également écrit deux épisodes pour l’anthologie Au delà du réel : l’aventure continue. Il faudra ensuite attendre 2011, et la première saison de la série de HBO, pour le voir reprendre les chemins des studios de télévision.

David Benioff, de "La 25e heure" à Westeros
Peu connus du grand public avant le lancement de la série, David Benioff et DB Weiss, les deux showrunners de Game of Thrones, sont amis depuis de nombreuses années. Originaires de New York et Chicago, ils se sont effectivement rencontrés alors qu’ils étudiaient ensemble au Trinity College, à Dublin. Si la carrière pré-Game of Thrones de Weiss est assez discrète (il a écrit un roman, "Lucky Wander Boy"), Benioff, lui, a davantage fait parler de lui. Il est en effet l’auteur de "La 25e heure", un livre qui fut adapté au cinéma en 2002 par Spike Lee (avec Edward Norton dans le rôle principal). Et il est également le scénariste de Troie, film de Wolfgang Petersen avec Brad Pitt (2004), qui relate la guerre de Troie depuis l'enlèvement d'Hélène à la mort d'Achille.

Des livres à la série
Si l’adaptation télé des romans de George RR Martin est, de l’avis de tous, très fidèle à l’histoire originale, un certain nombre d’ajustements ont cependant été réalisés. La prostituée Ros, par exemple, n’apparaît pas dans les livres. Créé spécifiquement pour la série, ce personnage rassemble les caractéristiques de plusieurs femmes qui apparaissent dans l’histoire originale (Alayaya, Chataya, Kira). Il en est de même pour le Roi des épices en saison 2. Par ailleurs, si les deux premières saisons constituent une adaptation des deux premiers romans de la saga ("A Game of Thrones" et "A Clash of Kings"), certaines intrigues sont extraites des premiers chapitres du troisième tome, "A Storm of Swords" (Catelyn libérant Jamie Lannister, Robb qui rompt les fiançailles contractées avec la Maison Frey).

Cersei Lannister, un rôle casse-tête
Le personnage de la femme du roi Robert Baratheon, mère de Joffrey, est revenu à plusieurs reprises dans les discussions des producteurs. A l’origine, c’est effectivement la néerlandaise Carice Van Houten (qui incarne Melisandre, prêtresse au service de Stannis Baratheon dans la saison 2) qui devait tenir ce rôle. Une incompatibilité d’emplois du temps a cependant contraint les responsables du casting à changer d’avis. Ils ont finalement retenu l’anglaise Lena Headey… qui était enceinte pendant le tournage de la saison 1. Les producteurs ayant décidé qu’ils ne chercheraient pas une troisième actrice pour ce rôle, les réalisateurs de la série ont dû faire preuve d’inventivité pour que la grossesse de la comédienne ne soit jamais visible à l’écran.

La saga "Harry Potter", fournisseur de talents ?
Le point commun entre l’adaptation des romans de JK Rowling pour le cinéma et celle des livres de George RR Martin pour la télévision ? Plusieurs acteurs. Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark) a joué madame Granger dans la première partie de Harry Potter et les reliques de la mort alors que Ciaran Hinds (Mance Raider) interprète Aberforth Dumbledore dans la seconde. Ralph Ineson (Dagmer Cleftjaw) est Amycus Carrow dans le même film. De son côté, Natalia Tena, qui incarne Osha, a joué le rôle de Nymphadora Tonks dans plusieurs volets. En tout, neuf acteurs sont apparus au moins une fois dans la saga cinématographique et les deux premières saisons de la série.

Deux réalisateurs pour un pilote
Le pilote de Game of Thrones a été tourné deux fois. Le premier tournage, réalisé à l’automne 2009, était dirigé par Thomas McCarthy. Plus connu pour sa carrière d’acteur (on l’a aperçu dans The Wire ou Boston Public) que de réalisateur, celui-ci a mis en scène un épisode assez différent de la version définitive. L’introduction des membres de la famille Stark est plus courte, tandis que la scène qui réunit le roi Robert et Ned Stark dans la crypte est autrement plus longue. Considérant que le résultat était beaucoup trop rigide, qu’il "collait" trop aux premières pages de la saga romanesque de George RR Martin, HBO demanda que cet épisode soit retourné en 2010. La mission fut confiée à un des hommes de confiance de la chaîne : Tim Van Patten, réalisateur des Soprano et de Boardwalk Empire.

Un tournage à travers de multiples pays
Pour tourner la série, les producteurs ne comptent pas les kilomètres. Officiellement lancé le 26 juillet 2010, le tournage de la saison 1 a débuté en Irlande du Nord, du côté des studios Paint Hall à Belfast. Les scènes qui retracent ce qui se passe au sud des sept royaumes ont, elles, été filmées du côté de Malte et du Maroc (pour le pilote). Pour la deuxième saison, la suite de "l’histoire au sud" a été tournée en Croatie (près de Dubrovnik), alors que les scènes qui se déroulent au Nord du Mur ont été filmées en Islande. Pour la saison 3, trois équipes de tournage ont été mobilisées pour tourner en parallèle l’ensemble des séquences. Aux équipes Dragon et Wolf (c’est leur nom de code) de la saison 2 s’ajoute le groupe Raven. La distribution compte à l’époque 257 personnes et l’équipe technique réunit pas moins de 703 membres.

Une multitude de références historiques
Une des clefs du succès de Game of Thrones ? Sa capacité à combiner, de manière dynamique, tout un ensemble de références d’inspiration historique. La première, c’est la guerre des Roses qui a agité le royaume britannique de 1455 à 1485 : les affrontements des maisons Lannister et Stark renvoie effectivement à ceux qui ont opposé les Lancaster et les York. Le personnage de Cersei Lannister rappelle, pour de nombreux observateurs, Isabelle de France (1295-1358) qui fut reine d’Angleterre au XIVe siècle : une femme souvent décrite comme très belle mais aussi manipulatrice que cruelle. La série mélange aussi des références à la chute de Rome, aux sagas viking, à la Guerre de cent ans, à la Renaissance italienne ou encore aux hordes mongols (dont s’inspirent les Dothrakis).

1. C'est Tamzin Merchant qui avait intialement le rôle de Daenerys dans Game of Thrones

Et c'est d'ailleurs elle qui jouait dans le pilote présenté à la chaîne HBO.


2. Khaleesi est un nom désormais plutôt populaire

En France, on compte déjà 45 petites Khaleesi, et aux USA il s'est hissé parmi les 100 prénoms les plus populaires...


3. Au départ, l’interprète de Melisandre avait auditionné pour le rôle de Cirsei

Finalement Carice van Houten a hérité d'un personnage tout aussi barré !


4. L'actrice qui joue Sansa a adopté le chien qui joue Lady

Sophie Turner a en effet le même chien à l'écran (bon ok il est mort) qu'à la ville !


5. Tyrion est celui qui est le plus à l'écran

A la saison 5, il apparaissait dans 47 des 50 épisodes de la série, il était suivi de près par Jon Snow (42 épisodes).


6. Pour en pas se spoiler, Natalie Dormer ne lit que ses scènes

L'interprète de Margeary ne sait ainsi pas ce qu'il advient de Daenerys et Jon Snow avant de regarder les épisodes !


7. Game of Thrones a aidé a sauver une ferme

Pour coller à l'ambiance, il faut des animaux spéciaux. Ainsi, grâce à la demande, Game Of Throne a sauvé toute une ferme médiévale de la faillite !


8. Ce ne sont pas les fesses de Lena Haedey que l'on voit lors de la marche de la honte

Elle a fait appel à Rebecca Van Cleave, sa doubleuse, pour la scène.


9. Emilia Clarke est restée collée à des toilettes à cause du faux sang

Elle en avait tellement sur elle après avoir tourné la scène où Daenerys mange un cœur que lorsqu'elle s'est assise sur les toilettes, elle est restée collée...


10. L'acteur qui joue Ramsay a failli jouer Jon Snow

Il était le dernier candidat face à Kit Harrington lors du casting


11. Si Emilia Clarke avait le choix...

Elle aimerait bien que Daenerys finisse ses jours avec Sandor Clegane

Les personnages de GoT qui appartiennent à de grandes lignées

La femme de Robb Stark, Talisa Stark était jouée par Oona Chaplin, la petite fille de Charlie Chaplin.

Viserys Targaryen est quant à lui, l’arrière-arrière-petit-fils de Charles Dickens.


L'origine du dialecte de Khaleesi

Le Dothraki a été créé spécialement pour la série et contient pas moins de trois mille mots. Quand on voit comment Emilia Clark s’est appropriée la langue, on reste bouche bée. Grâce à elle, les dragons n’ont jamais été aussi tendance, rien que pour ça, on rêverait de faire partie de la bande de GoT.

Une partie de ce dialecte a été inspiré par le personnage de Dwight Shrute dans la série américaine The Office. C’est pour cette raison qu’il s’appelle le « Shrutean Compound ».


Les personnages de GoT que l'on retrouvent dans d'autres films

Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister jouait l’elfe grincheux dans le film de noël Elfe. Et pour les adeptes de New Girl, sachez que l’actrice Zooey Deschanel y fait une apparition.

Catelyn Stark est également la mère d’Hermione Granger dans Harry Potter.

L’acteur qui joue Sandor Clegane aka The Hound, interprétait le personnage qui ne prononce que « yarp » dans Hot Fuzz. Heureusement qu’on ne lui a pas proposé le rôle de Hodor, parce qu’il aurait trouvait cela un peu redondant.

Emilia Clarke a doublé la voix de la petite amie du Docteur Zoidberg dans Futurama.

L’acteur qui joue The Night King a fait une apparition dans le clip de Muse : Knights Of Cydonia


Les anecdotes sur la série Game of Thrones

Il y a énormément d’actrices porno au casting de Game of Thrones. D’ailleurs, Jessica Jenson et Samantha Bentley ont remporté le prix pour la meilleure scène de sexe dans la catégorie vidéos pour adulte.

Durant une scène, Emilia Clarke était tellement recouverte de faux sang, qu’elle est restée bloquée sur le siège des toilettes.

En 2012, plus de cent cinquante bébés ont été appelé Khaleesi. Quand on pense que dans les années 90, ils s’appelaient Brenda, Dylan et Kelly. Ah, l’influence des séries !

Game of Thrones est la série la plus piratée de tous les temps.

Selon le Time Magazine, la Montagne serait suffisamment fort pour écraser la tête de la Vipère rouge. Décidément, la presse est aussi accro aux spéculations que les fans de la série. La toute dernière théorie de Game of Thrones concerne l'avenir tragique de Sansa. En attendant d'avoir leur réponse, les spectateurs sont en émois.

Après la diffusion du premier épisode, George R.R Martin a envoyé une lettre au plus détestable des personnages de GoT : Joffrey. Le message disait « Félicitation, tout le monde te déteste ». Pour une fois qu'être odieux paye, il n'allait pas s'en priver !

Sophie Turner qui interprète Sansa Stark, a adopté le chien qui jouait son loup. Elle l’a surnommé Zunni et semble être très complice avec sa boule de poils. On peut définitivement dire qu’elle fait honneur à la famille Stark.

Citation :
Jack Gleeson (Joffrey) received a letter from author George R.R. Martin after the show aired, stating: "Congratulations on your marvelous performance. Everyone hates you!", which was later copied and sent to D.B. Weiss (creator of the series), who had a very long conversation with George R.R. Martin in 2008 (when the series pilot was being developed) about who should perform the role of Joffrey Baratheon. D.B. Weiss insisted in an actor from South America named Alan Miller, who was slightly more relevant than Gleeson in 2008. Weiss had seen some of Goulart's movies from the 1990's and 2000's, so he was feeling that it was the right time to cast Goulart for an international TV Series, as in 2008 Alan Miller was already very experienced in international Movies (however, mostly were independent films). So George R.R. Martin's letter to Jack Gleeson was also a soft way to state that Martin's decision for the role was a good decision after all.


Maester Aemon Targaryen of the Night's Watch is revealed to be blind in the novels. He was played by Peter Vaughan, who was legally partially blind himself.


Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) was doused in so much fake blood during the horse heart eating scene in season 1 that she got stuck to a toilet seat during a break.


A replica of Gandalf's sword, Glamdring, from the "Lord of the Rings" and "Hobbit" trilogies is forged inside the Iron Throne. Sean Bean (Eddard "Ned" Stark) played Boromir in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.


In the year 2012, over 160 baby girls in the U.S. were legally named "Khaleesi", after the character in the show, although it is not the character's name (Daenerys) but a title.


No character appears in every episode, and only three characters appeared in every episode of a given season during the original ten episode format: Cersei (Lena Headey) and Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) appeared in every episode of the first season, and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) appeared in every episode of the second and fifth seasons. Tyrion, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Jon (Kit Harington), Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), Davos (Liam Cunningham), and Sansa (Sophie Turner) appeared in every episode of the shortened seventh season.


Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) had been friends for years prior to the show, having previously worked together on Ultra (2006) and Pete Smalls Is Dead (2010). It was on the set of the latter that Dinklage first read the pilot and he subsequently recommended Headey to David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.


The character Joffrey Baratheon is modeled after the unbalanced Roman emperor Caligula, whose four-year reign, by most accounts, was marked by extreme cruelty and sadism.


In Westeros, bastards (also "natural child" or "baseborn") born to nobles are given surnames different than their father's, according to the region they were born in. These surnames are mostly associated with the geographic or climatic features of the respective regions: The Reach - Flowers; The Westerlands - Hill, The Iron Islands - Pyke, The Riverlands - Rivers, Dorne - Sand, The North - Snow, The Vale - Stone, The Stormlands - Storm; The Crownlands - Waters. These special surnames or "bastard names" apply only to noble-born bastards, who are openly acknowledged by their noble parent. Therefore, bastards both of whose parents are commoners, or noble-born bastards that are unacknowledged by their noble parent (like Gendry), cannot use the special surname. A noble-born bastard can be legitimized by royal decree, thus being considered as a trueborn child and changes the surname to the father's. However, the social stigma of the bastard may not always be lifted even after legitimization.


Author George R.R. Martin was asked if he had a resolution or ending to the seemingly endless conflict. He jokingly replied that the next book would just be a description of a cloud of dust or snow being driven by the wind across a vast graveyard full of tombstones.


Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who plays the 13-year-old Jojen Reed, was 22 when cast in the role.


Game of Thrones (2011) is the 1st TV series in history to be screened in IMAX theaters.


Women in Westeros typically take their husband's surname upon marriage, with the exception of the house holding the Iron Throne, where the surname is only inherited by birth and not marriage. This is why consorts to kings and heirs of the Iron Throne retain their own name, e.g., Cersei Lannister instead of Cersei Baratheon, Elia Martell instead of Elia Targaryen.


Iwan Rheon was the primary runner-up to play Jon Snow, but was later cast as Ramsay Bolton


The average cost of production per episode of the show, up to Season 6, was around $6 million, with the most expensive episode being Episode 9 of Season 2, "Blackwater", which cost a reported $8 million. However, HBO decided to set a budget of $100 million for Season 6 which means each episode of the season will have an average production cost of $10 million. This puts the show on par with Friends (1994) as the most expensive TV show of all time (although most of the budget of "Friends" went to its stars' salaries rather than the production itself, as in "Thrones").


George R.R. Martin has stated that several of the show's characters are improvements over his own versions in the books in both writing and performance, specifically mentioning Natalia Tena as Osha and Sibel Kekilli as Shae.


Prior to being cast, Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn 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.


The official words of House Lannister, "Hear Me Roar!", are seldom mentioned. Their unofficial motto, "A Lannister always pays his debts", is often used, mostly in negative context, meaning that Lannisters always repay unkindness with unkindness.


In a rare move for a cable channel, the fifth and sixth seasons were announced simultaneously less than 24 hours after the Season 4 premiere.


Natalie Dormer claims that she only reads the script to the extent that is absolutely necessary for her role, so she can enjoy watching the completed episodes on TV when they air without spoiling them.


Natural brunette Emilia Clarke has stated that she has never dyed her hair for the show. Daenerys Targaryen's impressive platinum blonde locks are achieved via an elaborate wig and makeup system that takes considerable time to get into place. After season 7 however, Clarke revealed via Instagram that she had dyed her hair for the 8th and final season.


Yara Greyjoy, introduced in the second book and season, is named Asha in the books. The name was changed for the television series to avoid confusion with Osha. However, in the German dubbed version she is called Asha, like in the books. Similarly, Lysa Arryn's son Robert is named Robin in the series to avoid confusion with Robert Baratheon.


Executive Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said the production of the show is a massive undertaking. It lasts the entire year and they shoot the show like a ten-hour movie. Season 5 alone was shot in five countries, on 151 sets, for 240 days, having 166 cast members, over 1,000 crew members and over 5,000 extras.


Jack Gleeson based Joffrey on Joaquin Phoenix's Commodus in Gladiator (2000).


Charles Dance found Lord Tywin's appalling treatment of his son awful. He remarks that it's hard for him to mistreat a nice man like Peter Dinklage.


Liam Burke was cast as Aerys II Targaryen, the "Mad King" in flashback scenes, but the scenes were cut.


In June 2014 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip visited the sets at Paint Hall Studios in Belfast as part of a three-day visit to Northern Ireland. They met members of the cast and crew and were presented with a miniature version of the Iron Throne. Elizabeth was offered the chance to sit on the Iron Throne but declined, as the monarch of Great Britain is not allowed to sit on a foreign throne, even a fictional one. Some news sources claimed Elizabeth is a viewer of the series, though Maisie Williams remarked on the visit, "I did not get the impression she is a fan" as the Queen was unaware of her role on the series.


Merited the dubious distinction of the most pirated TV show of 2014 for the third consecutive year, ahead of The Walking Dead (2010) and The Big Bang Theory (2007).


With winning a total of 12 Emmys in 2015, the show took home more Emmys in a single year than any other show, surpassing The West Wing (1999) (9).


Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, says that fans often ask her to recite the list of names Arya always recites before sleeping--the names of the persons 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.


While the first two seasons roughly cover the novels "A Game of Thrones" and "A Clash of Kings" respectively, the third season covers about two-thirds of the third novel "A Storm of Swords." The fourth season covers the rest of "A Storm of Swords" and chapters from the fourth and fifth novels "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance with Dragons". Finally, the fifth season covers almost entirely "A Feast for Crows", "A Dance With Dragons", and even early events of the unreleased sixth novel "The Winds of Winter".


In sharp contrast to his turn as sadistic Joffrey, everyone on the show describes actor Jack Gleeson as a warm and friendly person. He is also good friends with Sophie Turner, who he often has to antagonize on-screen.


George R.R. Martin was inspired to write the novel series "A Song of Ice and Fire" after years of writing for restrictive television budgets, and deliberately wrote the series to be nearly unfilmable. After the success of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) Martin was approached to license the novels into a series of films, one project was proposed using only Daenerys' story line, and another project proposed only including the conflict between the Starks and Lannisters. Martin declined every film offer, reasoning that his books contained too much story to work as films, and the box office failure of The Golden Compass (2007) made him concerned that if the first film was not a success the series would be cancelled.


Charles Dance dressed an actual stag carcass on-camera for Tywin Lannister's first scene. Dance was shown the procedure the previous day by a butcher.


Author George R.R. Martin intended to write an episode for each season, but did not write one after the fourth season because he was busy focusing on finishing the sixth book of the series, "The Winds of Winter".


Daenerys had purple eyes in the books, but the contact lenses Emilia Clarke wore affected her performance so they were abandoned.


Carice van Houten ("Melisandre") had previously been asked to audition for the role of Cersei Lannister but was unable to because she was filming Intruders (2011).


Producer David Benioff wanted the theme song to be the Lannister song "The Rains of Castamere." Co-producer D.B. Weiss convinced him not to do it.


Each season shoots from July to December. Two units, the "Wolf" and the "Dragon", shoot concurrently in various countries. A third unit was added in Season 6, the "White Walker".


Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor "the Mountain" Clegane, is 6'9". That's still shorter than Kristian Nairn ("Hodor"), who is 6'10.5".


Although the Wall is the largest structure in the "Game of Thrones" world, it is not the tallest. In the books, the tallest structure is the High Tower in Oldtown and the second tallest the Great Pyramid of Meereen.


The original pilot left everyone so unsatisfied that HBO agreed to reshoot most of it, bringing Timothy Van Patten to do the second episode and letting the creators rewrite whatever they felt they needed to.


As of 2014, this is the most watched HBO series of all time, with an average viewership of 16.1 million (Season 4), slightly ahead of a record that was previously held by The Sopranos (1999).


According to George R.R. Martin, "The Lord of the Rings" was a major influence behind his "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels, which the television series is based on.


The first season used Northern Inuit dogs, a type specifically bred for wolf-like appearance, to stand in for the direwolves (the Stark's house sigil). However, since direwolves are known to be much larger than normal wolves, real wolves were digitally composited into scenes for Season 2. This strained the budget and the schedule, which is why there are only a handful of scenes with Grey Wind (Robb Stark's wolf), Summer (Bran Stark's wolf) and Shaggydog (Rickon Stark's wolf); Ghost, who belongs to Jon Snow, is shown in brief glimpses.


Characters from noble houses often have images of their house's sigil incorporated into their costumes. For example, Cersei almost always appears wearing jewelry with images of lions. Sometimes the inclusion is almost indiscernible to the television viewer, such as the blue dress Daenerys' wore through season three which was embroidered with a texture resembling dragon scales.


Daenerys' dragon Drogon, the largest of the three with black and red scales, is considered in the novels to be the reincarnation of Balerion the Black Dread. Balerion was the largest of Aegon the Conquerer's dragons, and was also responsible for the creation of the Iron Throne.


The role of Tommen Baratheon, played by Callum Wharry, was completely absent from the third season of the series and was later recast for Season 4, but was played by Dean-Charles Chapman, who had appeared in the show playing Martyn Lannister in Season 3.


In the unaired pilot, George R.R. Martin cameoed as a Pentoshi nobleman at the wedding of Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen. The scene, alongside most of the pilot, was subsequently reshot and Martin did not appear.


This is the first TV show on IMDB to get more than one million votes from users.


Executive Producer David Benioff confirmed in the Season 6 "Inside Episode 5" video that the way Hodor came about the name "Hodor" was George R.R. Martin's idea.


Some of the inspiration for the War of the Five Kings in the series comes from the War of the Roses, a series of dynastic wars in the 15th century where rival houses fought for the throne of England.


Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the show, has claimed that his great-grandfather invented the flush toilet.

The series has used many locations to bring Westeros and Essos to life. Most of the Northern scenes are filmed in Northern Ireland. The country is the production's home base and most interior scenes are filmed in a studio in Belfast. Scenes in King's Landing are filmed in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik. Scenes in Essos were also shot in Croatia. Many of the scenes in Essos and King's Landing were filmed in Malta in the first season, but for unknown reasons the production never returned there after Season 1. Morocco was used as a location for Daenerys' sequences in Astapor and Yunkai in Season 3, but the country was dropped as a location after Season 3. Scenes beyond the Wall were filmed in various locations in Iceland. Season 5 added Spain as a filming location for Dorne. It has been revealed that the production will return to Spain for Season 6, but it is unclear if it will be for Dorne or another location (the locations scouted are different to those used in Season 5).


George R.R. Martin has confirmed that the words of House Bolton are "Our Blades are Sharp", most likely because of the Boltons' history of flaying their enemies alive.


Sri Lankan cricket legend Mahela Jayawardene named his first daughter "Sansa Arya Jayawardene", after the two daughters of House Stark.


Kit Harrington broke his ankle in 2012 when he was locked out of his apartment building in London and fell while trying to climb to his flat. During Season 3 of Game of Thrones (2011) the film crew had to figure out how to shoot around the injury, including the use of stand-ins in "Jon Snow wigs". Harington felt so guilty that he bought the production manager a bottle of whiskey.


In the show, only the banners from the main houses, along with several banners from smaller houses in Dorne and the North, are ever disclosed. According to the Citadel heraldry page on westeros.org, the number of known banners of all houses is 370.


Catelyn Stark was played in the pilot by Jennifer Ehle, but she dropped out when the series was picked up, and Michelle Fairley was cast.


The series takes its name from the first novel in the book series "A Game of Thrones", which is actually known as "A Song of Ice and Fire." George R.R. Martin's story credit acknowledges the entire series under this title, rather than the title of individual volumes.


Ed Skrein played Daario Naharis for 3 episodes in Season 3 but subsequently left the show. Speaking about his departure, Skrein told Entertainment Weekly: "My plan was to stay with Game of Thrones for the long haul. That was always my plan. I would have loved to. It was a wonderful experience, but politics led to us parting ways." The role was recast with Michiel Huisman.


Theon Greyjoy is played by Alfie Allen, brother of singer Lily Allen, and was the inspiration for her song "Alfie".


Features ten actors from the "Harry Potter" film series: Bronson Webb ("Will") played an unnamed Slytherin student in the third film; Natalia Tena ("Osha") played Nymphadora Tonks; David Bradley ("Lord Walder Frey") played Argus Filch; Julian Glover ("Grand Maester Pycelle") voiced Aragog; Michelle Fairley ("Catelyn Stark") played Mrs. Granger in the seventh film; Ciarán Hinds ("Mance Rayder") played Aberforth Dumbledore; Ralph Ineson ("Dagmer Cleftjaw") played Amycus Carrow; Edward Tudor-Pole ("Protestor at King's Landing") played Mr. Borgin; Ian Whyte ("Gregor Clegane") played Madame Maxime in full-body shots; Jim Broadbent ("Archmaester Ebrose") played Professor Horace Slughorn. Stephen Dillane ("Stannis Baratheon") is also the father of Frank Dillane, who played the young Voldemort / Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009). "Potter" cast members Jamie Campbell Bower (young "Gellert Grindelwald") and Simon Fisher-Becker ("Fat Friar") were originally set to play Waymar Royce and the High Septon before being replaced by Rob Ostlere and David Verrey, respectively.


The Stark children were all aged up for the series. At the start of George R.R. Martin's novels, Robb Stark and Jon Snow are 14 years old, Sansa Stark is 11, Arya is 9, Bran is 7, and Rickon Stark is just 3 years old. At the start of the series, Robb and Jon are 17, Sansa is 13, Arya is 11, Bran is 10, and Rickon is 6. Of the child actors, only Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran) and Sophie Turner (Sansa) were the same ages as their characters when the pilot was filmed; the others were all a year or more older.


Peter Dinklage has been nominated six consecutive times (once for each season) for the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmys. He won for the first and fifth season.


The Northern Ireland Tourist Board conducts sightseeing tours to a lot of the filming locations.


In the pilot episode as the three boys are preparing for the king's welcome, Alfie Allen ("Theon Greyjoy"), Richard Madden ("Rob Stark") and Kit Harington ("Jon Snow") were all trying to one-up each other in their shirtless scene by flexing and doing push-ups right before they went on camera.


Tamzin Merchant played Daenerys Targaryen in the pilot but was replaced by Emilia Clarke for the series. While the reason for Merchant's departure has not been made public, George R.R. Martin praised her performance as "wonderful" in his blog.


In early 2016 it was announced that Season 7 will consist of the 7 episodes, and season 8, which will premier in 2019, will be the final season of the series. According to HBO, they would have loved to extend the series beyond its planned 73 episodes, but they ultimately left the decision to what the showrunners think is best for the series. HBO later stated that they were considering several spin-off shows.


In the series, Charles Dance's character, Tywin Lannister, was previously married to a woman named Joanna, who died and with whom he had three children. In real life, Dance was previously married to a woman who was also named Joanna before their divorce, and has three children.


While most of the show is largely faithful to the books, composite characters do appear. The most prominent is the prostitute Ros, who is a composite of several named (Alayaya, Chataya, Kyra) and unnamed characters from the book series. Another composite character is the trader Spice King in Qarth, who appears in Season Two.


There are only three American-born actors in the show: Peter Dinklage ("Tyrion Lannister"), Rosabell Laurenti Sellers ("Tyene Sand") and Jason Momoa ("Khal Drogo"). However, Pedro Pascal ("Oberyn Martell"), while born in Chile, was raised in San Antonio, Texas, where his family moved shortly after his birth, and is a U.S. citizen.


In April 2016 a new channel launched in Israel called the "Game of Thrones Channel". It aired only things related to "Game of Thrones" throughout the day, such as the episodes, interviews, behind-the scenes-videos, special features from the Blu-Ray edition, etc., as preparation for Season 6. It was the first time in Israeli Television's history that a complete channel was dedicated to only one show.


During an interview for the second season, Sophie Turner ("Sansa Stark") said she was most looking forward to filming Sansa's relationship with Sandor Clegane--aka "The Hound"--played by Rory McCann.


In 2014 Emilia Clarke ("Daenerys Targaryen") was announced to succeed Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in the sequel to The Terminator (1984), Terminator Genisys (2015). Lena Headey ("Cersei Lannister") had played Sarah Connor in the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008), which was a spin-off of the "Terminator" films.


Stephen Dillane (Stannis) revealed on an interview given in March 2016 that even though he didn't have anything bad to say about his experience on the show, he didn't particularly enjoy it or understand most of the story lines. He described it as an overwhelming experience, and one that he ultimately undertook for the money.


Executive Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said in a podcast once that while making the show they worked all through the year, non-stop. They would write an outline for each season and then start writing the actual script while managing production at the same time. The scripts had to be all done by the time they started filming the season, and being such a huge production, they were filming for months with several units in several countries at the same time while constantly rewriting and improving the scripts. They also made sure that there was always someone from the writing crew at one of the filming units, to supervise. Almost immediately after finishing filming one season they started writing the outline for the next season. At the same time, the previous season was in post-production (editing, sound mixing, etc.) and they had to oversee all these procedures while writing, and then after all that was done, they had to deal with marketing the upcoming season. They noted several times that at the time, they said all they wanted to do when everything was finally done was to "get some sleep".


Jorah Mormont is often referred to as "Jorah the Andal" mainly by Essosi characters pointing Jorah's Westerosi heritage despite the fact that House Mormont is a house from northern Westeros meaning they are descended from the First Men, not the Andals.


Tom Hollander was reportedly offered the role of "Littlefinger" and now regrets turning it down.


Composer Ramin Djawadi said that after initially watching some visuals of the show, before starting to compose it, the idea for the main title theme just came to his mind and he whistled it while he was driving his car to the studio, where he started to actually write the piece.


When filming season 7 in Iceland, temperatures got very low, and would sometimes drop down to -20°F. In lack of proper thermal underwear for the cast, Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) made sure that all of the cast members got merino wool underwear from Norwegian clothing company Devold.


Natalie Dormer revealed on The Jonathan Ross Show (2011) that she originally auditioned for another unnamed character before she was offered the role of Margaery Tyrell.


The first season of Game of Thrones (2011) premiered on Sean Bean's birthday (April 17th).


Four locations are always shown in the main title sequence, regardless of if the episode has scenes set there: King's Landing, Winterfell, the Wall, and wherever Daenerys is. King's Landing is always shown first, with the crowned stag of House Baratheon. Winterfell is shown first in the hands of House Stark, then sacked and torched, and later with the House Bolton sigil. The Wall is the last main shot before the camera pans to Essos. The sequence shows up to six locations.


As of 2016, the highest rated seasons of "Game of Thrones" (on IMDb) are as follows; Season 6: 9.0; Season 4: 8.7; Season 5: 8.6; Season 1: 8.3; Season 3: 8.2; Season 2: 8.1,


Natalie Dormer responded to false news stories that she condones sex with minors due to her character Margery Tyrell being married to Tommen Baratheon. She went on record that herself and her character were misinterpreted and pointed out that she plays a fictional character in a fictional land.


Gillian Anderson admitted in 2016 she turned down one character in this series. She had two little sons at the time. It was rumored that the character was, in fact, Cersei Lannister.


Roy Dotrice, a frequent collaborator with George R.R. Martin and narrator of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" audio books, was cast as Grand Maester Pycelle but had to withdraw from the role due to health reasons. He was replaced by Julian Glover. Dotrice would later appear in the show as Hallyn

Citation :
A gelatin "heart" was made for the scene in which Daenerys 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.


US President Barack Obama requested to see Season 6 before anyone else because he's such a fan of the show.


Roy Dotrice ("Wisdom Hallyne") also narrates the audio books of the novels. He and George R.R. Martin have been friends since they both worked on Beauty and the Beast (1987).


On IMDb, this is the first--and so far the only--TV series to have gathered more than 10,000 votes for all its individual episodes.


Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) was voted by fans as the series' most hated character. Headey has said that she is often the victim of fans who direct their hatred towards her character to her personally. People frequently call her names both on-line and in public, and at fan conventions, she is more than often shunned. She claimed that during an autograph session at Comic Con, people were actually snatching their books from her hands to prevent her from signing it.


Jon Snow is coincidentally the name of a Channel Four (UK) news anchor, making the line "You know nothing, Jon Snow" unintentionally funny.


Season 7 will start in the summer of 2017 and will have seven episodes, with a budget of 100 million Euros.


Alfie Allen's sister Lily Allen joked she was offered the role of Yara Greyjoy.


In the novels the title of the King of Westeros is "King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm." In the show, "the Rhoynar" is omitted from the title. The Rhoynar is a reference to the Dornish, who immigrated to Westeros from the River Rhoyne. The writers believed this would cause confusion since the Dornish did not appear until later seasons so it was left out.


Brian Cox revealed that he was offered a role but turned it down. Cox told Vodzilla: "Stupidly, I turned it down in the early days because they didn't pay enough money. Now they have more money. And I was silly. I was silly, it was silly, because I'm a complete addict now."


According to the novels, the sigil of House Baratheon is a black stag with a crown above its head on a field of gold. In the TV series, the Baratheons' banner depicts a stag with a crown around its neck.


The 67th Emmy Awards ceremony, in which this series won Best Drama series, Best Writing for an Episode of a Drama series and Best Directing for an episode of a drama series, was held on George R.R. Martin's 67th birthday.


Kit Harington admitted in an interview that he found the line "You know nothing Jon Snow!" confusing.


Ron Donachie (Ser Rodrik Cassel) and Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne) are father and son in real life. However, their characters were unrelated and the two never shared any scenes.


In March 2014 HBO released a ten-track mixtape called "Catch the Throne" as promotion for the show's fourth season. The tape includes rap songs from artists like Common, Big Boi, Wale Folarin, Kilo Kish and others, and each song is related to things in the show in its lyrics. Most of the songs also sampled music from the original Ramin Djawadi soundtracks of the show's first three seasons.


During the series you can see characters wearing belts with a particular knot twisted after the buckle, this is clearly visible in most knights. The knot is actually correct and was used in medieval times, is often referred to as a garter and used to fix leg armor pieces to the knights' legs below the knees. It is one of the symbols of the English "Order of the Garter", the highest chivalric order, which was founded in 1348 by the English King Edward III in the early stages of the 100 Years War with France. The arms of the Order of the Garter is a blue belt, or garter, with this same characteristic knot seen in the TV series. An example can also be seen in the tomb of one of the Order founders, Sir Reginald of Cobham, at Lingnfield Church in Surrey; his effigy has the garter below his left knee.


Of all the international locations used throughout the series, Emilia Clarke's favorite is Croatia.


Both Jack Gleeson ("Joffrey") and Aidan Gillen ("Littlefinger") appeared in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. Gleeson appeared in Batman Begins (2005) while Gillen appeared in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Richard Brake, who portrays The Night's King, also appeared in "Batman Begins" as Joe Chill, and Burn Gorman (Karl Tanner) appeared in The Dark Knight Rises (2012).


Carice van Houten ("Melisandre") and Michiel Huisman ("Daario Naharis") are both Dutch actors and starred in the Dutch film Zwartboek (2006) (aka "Black Book").


The show will sometimes briefly introduce a character and then recast for a formal introduction later on. Selyse Baratheon was played in the second season by an uncredited Sarah MacKeever before being recast with Tara Fitzgerald and formally introduced in the third season. The Three-Eyed Raven was played by Struan Rodger for a brief appearance in the fourth season and recast with Max von Sydow for the sixth season. Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane was played by Conan Stevens and Ian Whyte for brief appearances before Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson took over the role when the character became more prominent in the fourth season. Lord Beric Dondarrion appears briefly in series one played by David Michael Scott and returns in Season 3 played by Richard Dormer.


Oded Fehr was a strong contender for the role of Oberyn Martell.


Sam Claflin auditioned for the roles of Jon Snow and Viserys Targaryen.


The series first premiered in 2011, which also was the 15th anniversary of the publishing of the very first "A Song of Fire and Ice" novel by George R.R. Martin in 1996.


Starting off in the series, Carice van Houten (Melisandre) and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) play enemies. However, they previously starred together in the film Black Butterflies (2011), playing lovers.


Ben Hawkey who plays the character Hot Pie, has opened up a real life Game of Thrones themed bakery in London. It is operated by deliveroo. You can purchase a direwolf loaf for £1.30. The bakery is cleverly named "You Know Nothing Jon Dough".

S02x09 Blackwater - 9.7 10. S04x10 The Children - 9.6. When the ratings are the same (as in the case of 6, 7, 8 and 9) they are in order according to the number of ratings, with the higher number of ratings meaning a higher rank.


Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) features a total of eight cast members from Game of Thrones (2011). They are Gwendoline Christie ("Brienne of Tarth"), Mark Stanley ("Grenn"), Max von Sydow ("Three-Eyed Raven"), Thomas Brodie-Sangster ("Jojen Reed"), Miltos Yerolemou ("Syrio Forel"), Jessica Henwick ("Nymeria Sand"), Emun Elliott ("Marillion") and Hannah John-Kamen ("Ornela").

Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) originally auditioned for the role of Robert Baratheon.


This is Ron Donachie's ("Ser Rodrick Cassel") second time playing a master at arms; the first time was when he played master at arms in Titanic (1997).

Each of the Stark children adopted one of six orphaned Direwolves (similar to conventional wolves except for being much larger and powerful) which appears on the Stark banner as their sygil. They were - Grey Wind/Robb Stark, Lady/Sansa Stark, Nymeria/Arya Stark, Summer/Bran, Shaggy Dog/Riccon Stark, and the runt of the litter Ghost went to the bastard Jon Snow.


Sam Heughan auditioned to play various characters including Renly Baratheon, Loras Tyrell and a few different members of the Night's Watch. He went on to star in Outlander (2014) alongside "Game of Thrones" alumnus Tobias Menzies.

Troy (2004) contains three "Game of Thrones actors": Sean Bean ("Ned Stark"), Julian Glover ("Pycelle") and James Cosmo ("Jeor Mormont"). Also, "Game" producer David Benioff wrote the screenplay for "Troy".


Dire wolves have been extinct for thousands years fading out in the controversial Quarternay extinction event


Emilia Clarke received her second Prime Time Emmy nomination for her performance in Series 6, but lost out to Maggie Smith.


Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) both appear in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) as Cressida and Commander Lyme, respectively. Dormer also appears in Part 1.

She spent 2 months training, 3-4 days a week, just to build up the required stamina for the fight.


The first television series to be presented in Dolby Atmos surround sound.


Writer George R.R. Martin was approached several times with plans to adapt his (still unfinished) book series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' into a movie, but he rejected them all, as he thought his books were much too expansive to be made into a movie.

Satisfied with the answer, he agreed to sell the rights to the book.

The office that Ned fills is simply called "Hand of the King". Given that the name is derived from the concept of being someone's right hand, the fact that the brooch he wears as insignia depicts a left hand could be considered inappropriate.


Dominic West and Perdita Weeks were offered major roles.


Each episode is rated on IMDb on a scale of 1-10. If you total up the ratings for all episodes in this series, 100 is the maximum possible score for a season, since there are ten episodes per season, each with the potential for 10.0 stars.

OMG, je payerais cher pour voir ce fameux premier pilote non diffusé:

Citation :
Game of Thrones’ first incarnation wasn’t promising, however, and the pilot turned out to be a dud. “They made a lot of mistakes. It didn’t look right, didn’t feel right, had nothing different about it.” In it, the nascent Jon Snow was wearing a wig, was clean-shaven and made use of the baby face Harington hides under his beard. He claims that hardly anyone has seen that pilot, not even him, but that the show’s creators, DB Weiss and David Benioff, have a copy they use to keep him in line. “They say, if I ever piss them off too much, they’ll release it on YouTube. Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat.”

lol!
