Kit Harington talks about encountering people who believe Game of Thrones is actually history

Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to ever grace the television screens. The series is easily recognizable as a pop culture icon, whose fandom transcends geological boundaries. The TV show was based on George R. R. Martin’s famous novel series A Song of Fire and Ice, which in turn was heavily inspired by medieval history. This often leads some people into believing that Game of Thrones wasn’t a fantasy story, rather real history itself. And Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington has met a few of them himself.

The conversation arose in an interview with PTI, where Harington was present for the promotion of Amazon’s Modern Love Season 2. He mentioned a Game of Thrones joke in the script that attracted his attention towards the show.

In a scene, Harington’s Michael is seen discussing his love life with his brother Declan, played by a moustachioed Jack Reynor.

During their conversation, Declan asks Michael about Paula and what she does. He replies that she is studying Medievalism to which Declan quips, “Like ‘Game of Thrones’?’, leaving his brother with a puzzled look on his face.

In reality, Harington said he has come across people who believe that Game of Thrones, based on author George R. R. Martin’s book series, is actually history.

I’ve met people who have said to me, ‘You know, I don’t know much about that ‘Game of Thrones’ stuff. I’ve never been much of a history buff.’

And I was like, ‘Really? I’m not sure you have to be’,” the actor said.

Actually, I was one of the very same people who thought Game of Thrones covered actual historical events. This happened in 2013. Shortly before season 3 aired. A co-worker had recommended that I watch Game of Thrones. At the time, I was into the final season of Spartacus. So, after Spartacus ended, I said to myself, “Let’s see what this Game of Thrones is all about.” I believe HBO was airing the season 1 and 2 episodes, leading up to season 3. They happened to be showing season 1 episode 5. That was the episode where Ned Stark was in… Read more »

Game of Thrones’ Robin Arryn is all grown up now, and fans are going crazy over his ‘Sex Education’ role!

Game of Thrones had several characters who started off as little kids and later blossomed into the bold personas we know and love so much. The child actors who were part of the show also grew up with it as the seasons progressed, and many of them have successful careers now. British-Brazilian actor Lino Facioli became famous after his role ‘Robin Arryn‘ in Game of Thrones. But recently, he’s in the limelight for his new character in the Netflix series ‘Sex Education’, and fans don’t seem to get enough of him.

Now much older, Facioli is on our screens again, this time as Moordale High student Dex Thompson – a nerdy teen who competes in the high school quiz team alongside Maeve Wiley.

He’s also whipped his kit off in the latest season, and a lot of viewers are finding it difficult to process that it’s the same person who played little Robin Arryn in Game of Thrones. Here’s what they have to say:

Game of Thrones star Conleth Hill was very depressed over shaving his head for playing Lord Varys

Conleth hill bald

Game of Thrones had some of the most amazing actors in its cast, and the casting was so on-point that many of the stars became synonymous with the characters they played on-screen. Conleth Hill was so fabulous in his role as Lord Varys, today we can’t even imagine anyone else playing the role of Master of Whispers so perfectly. Even though Hill gained widespread recognition for his character on Game of Thrones, he was forever unhappy about a specific feature of his role. Showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss wanted Varys to be bald, and that made Hill feel really depressed.

In James Hibberd’s novel, Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon, Conleth gave a candid interview in which he revealed shaving his head made him “very depressed.” He confessed to having some initial reluctance about playing Varys, and thought the show would be about “Dungeons and Dragons.” Although originally taping for the role as King Robert, he revealed the producers called him back to read for Lord Varys.

The actor admitted he thought it was “nice bull***t” when the producers said they would come back to him about playing King Robert. When Conleth read for the role of the Master of Whispers, they asked if he could shave his head, to which he revealed he’d never shaved his head before and stated: ”I was very depressed.”

James Hibberd’s novel has revealed various secrets about HBO’s famous fantasy epic previously, such as the show’s botched pilot episode. Do you think Varys would have looked better with silver locks? Tell us in the comments below!

Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke celebrated their Game of Thrones reunion by getting “as drunk as humanly possible”

Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke celebrated their Game of Thrones reunion by getting “as drunk as humanly possible”

Game of Thrones was a beautiful journey for the cast and the fans alike. It was a show like no other, breaking records and gaining unprecedented popularity. The cast made lifelong relationships with each other. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke may have played a couple on-screen for a little time on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen, they have been great friends behind-the-screens in real life. So we can understand their over-the-top celebration when they finally reunited after a long and busy schedule.

Both Emilia and Jason have been quite busy recently, Emilia with writing her new comic book, and Jason with his new projects such as See Season 2 and the upcoming Aquaman sequel. They were delighted to see each other when they met at Game of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff’s birthday bash, as evident from the picture below.

The 34-year-old actress told PEOPLE Magazine that Momoa, 42, got attendees “as drunk as humanly possible” — and she savoured every single drop. “I mean, I’ve never tried so many different whiskeys in my entire life. There were a couple that was really nice, and there were a couple that was paint stripper, and I literally was like, ‘Yeah I’m gonna down you, get hair on your chest.’ It was funny.”

When Jay’s in town, you know it’s going down,” she remembered. “He walks into the room and you’re just like, ‘My man.’ It’s almost like a test, every time he sees [me] he’s like, ‘Can I still throw you around the room? Yeah I can.'”

Are you happy to see the duo together once again? Talk to us in the comments below!
