Game of Thrones ended its glorious run of eight seasons earlier this year. During its run, the show garnered immense following and success. Ever since the show finished its run, there have been lots of postmortem of the show by fans and critics alike. Recently the cast joined in the discussion and tried to explain their reasons for the mammoth success of the show. Read on to find out!

Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kristofer Hivju, Richard Dormer, Jerome Flynn, and Isaac Hempstead Wright recently spoke to IGN and answered questions in their own candid style.

On asked about why the show became such a global cultural phenomenon, Maisie Williams gestured towards herself!

Sophie Turner on the other hand said:

“Fantastical elements that gave the escapism, the very human interaction and emotions” was what she believed was the perfect combination.

Kristofer Hivju a.k.a. Tormund Giantsbane on the show thought:

“It is so much that is unexpected, it doesn’t follow any rules of storytelling.” He also added the sheer amount of hard work that about 2000 people put in on the show had also something to do about making the show a giant success.

Jerome Flynn that played the character of Bronn on the show said:

“The richness of character that George originally created had so much wide array of emotions. The job the makers did of translating the characters from book to the screen and also the epic nature that HBO brought to the show”

Flynn believed are all part of the reasons why the show was such a massive success. Isaac Hempstead on the other hand believed:

“The attention to detail on the show was unparalleled. Literally, the books on the show were handwritten by the props department and you might only see it for 2 minutes..”

He also credited writer George R. R. Martin for creating such a vast universe through his books.

Wasn’t it nice to see the whole cast talking about the show so fondly? Let us know why you thought the show became such a big success?

Humility is a virtue possessed by few. Even though Game of Thrones reached great heights, the show’s cast was always humble to their roots. They have won the admiration and respect of fans all over the world due to their down-to-earth nature. For example, Jason Momoa reached out to a young Aquaman fan battling cancer last year. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked to Digital Spy about the show’s success and praised his co-stars.

He said, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I think for us that was a good thing. I mean it was always immensely popular, I just think as the seasons went on it moved from a really amazing TV show into a kind of phenomenon. It sort of turned into that thing that everyone talks about, people say over the watercooler at work. “

“It’s crazy, because every TV show you watch these days, every single TV show or movie, they all reference Game of Thrones. It always blows me away. I watch a show I love and there’s a reference to Hodor, there’s a reference to Khaleesi. It’s become such a huge part of the public psyche. I don’t think we ever dreamed before season one was out that that would happen. It still happens!”

“It kind of grew, it really doubled per season. But we grew into it, which made it kind of easy. The cast was really down to Earth. I can say hand on heart we’re all really down to Earth. I think that’s a really nice thing. Just the whole Hollywood thing, we’re all kind of aware of that… Game of Thrones is so brutal and real. It’s important to keep it real.”

Game of Thrones was an enchanting journey that lasted for nearly a decade. Some of the show’s cast was very young when the show began. They sort of grew up with the show, like Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright. Stardom can be a bit scary when you are young. Especially for someone as studious as Isaac Hempstead-Wright. He revealed about his nervousness in an interview with Digital Spy.

Isaac (Bran) said, “It was actually a little bit intimidating. I remember seeing the show go interstellar. Especially when you’re separate from it a bit [Bran was off-screen during season five], you really just see how huge it is when you’re not in the midst of the whole thing.”

“I really think season five was when it had its meteoric rise. So coming back into season six – and I hadn’t acted for a year; I’d been doing my GCSEs – coming back in was kind of like, ‘Argh! I’ve forgotten how to act!’”

He continued, “I think also there had been a lot of bonds forged in that season, and a lot of people had grown up. I’d kind of grown-up, but I had that key year of being 15, 16 away from it. So it was a weird one to come back to. But after a couple of days, it was business as usual.”

Game of Thrones ended more than one and a half years ago. It was a beautiful journey for both the fans and the crew that lasted for a decade. The fantastical series still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won. On the occasion of New Year, the cast of the show came together for an interview with Digital Spy. They shared their experience while shooting for the fantasy epic. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked about how they were cast for their roles.

Gwendoline recalled, “I immediately rang my agent and said, ‘I want to do this’. My agent said, ‘What are you talking about? I’d never ever put you up for this. She’s ugly, her nose is broken, her teeth are broken and you’ll need to use a sword’.”

Nairn remembered, “I was a first-time actor. I was glad I didn’t know anything about the show at the time. Because if I had I would’ve realised what a huge audition I was going for. I had no idea what Game of Thrones was. I had auditioned for a part in another movie called Hot Fuzz, and I didn’t get the part. It was the casting director Nina Gold who remembered me – she called me in for this audition. I didn’t know it at the time, but when you’re called for an audition, that’s really in your favour.”
