Lesser Known Game Of Thrones Facts

Season 6 is here, Jon Snow is back and basically, life has some purpose again. Let’s just admit it, there’s no life outside ‘Game Of Thrones’! So, for all you fans out there, here are some facts you probably didn’t know.
1. Okay, let’s start with this. Jack Gleeson, who played super douche Joffrey Baratheon also played an innocent little kid in ‘Batman Begins’. If only we know what he’d grow up to be!

3. Remember Lady? Sansa’s direwolf? Well, Sophie Turner (Sansa) adopted him in real life! Probably the only good decision Sansa’s ever made.

4. Martin has already told the writers of the show, David Benioff and W.B. Weiss how he wants the show to end, just in case he doesn’t survive till the books are complete! So, don’t worry guys! The show’s gonna be on. (So going to hell for this!)

9. Richard Madden (Robb Stark) wasn’t told his character was going to die. He hadn’t read the books. It was when he was searching for his character on Google that he found out the spoiler! Now, this just makes the Red Wedding even sadder.

10. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne Of Tarth) doesn’t know her own birthday. Apparently, nobody in her family noted down the date. That’s such a Brienne thing.

13. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) don’t see eye to eye in real life. Rumour has it that they once dated and things didn’t end up well. In fact, if reports are to be believed, they’re so far off from being cordial, there took place a feud between them on the sets so bad that they had to be separated.

14. Apart from being the most awesome show, ‘Game Of Thrones’ is also the most expensive one ever! On an average $6 million is spent on making one episode of ‘GoT’. The one with the war at the Blackwater Bay cost a whopping $8 million!

15. It’s not necessary that all good things have a successful start. The original pilot of the show received such harsh reviews, the show was on the verge of being shelved! Jennifer Ehle and Tamzin Merchant were originally cast as Catelyn Stark and Daenerys, respectively. When the pilot bombed, it was re-shot with new actors!

16. And here comes the most interesting one of them all. After the premiere of the first episode of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 1, Martin wrote a letter to Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon) saying “Congratulations, everyone hates you!” Joffrey, if you’re reading this, we still do.
