Game Of Thrones Season 8 score is “more epic than ever,” says composer Ramin Djawadi

Game of Thrones is not shy about giving its fans goosebumps. Just hear the intro and tell me I’m wrong!

Indeed a significant part of what makes Game of Thrones such an epic show is its music score and the man behind it, German-Iranian composer Ramin Djawadi. Starting from the now iconic intro, Djawadi has gone on to score for each subsequent Season of Game of Thrones. But scoring for the most ambitious season of Game of Thrones must have needed a change of scale. In a recent interview with Variety, Djawadi talked about the final season score and his journey with Game of Thrones.

Like everybody else, Djawadi too is keen to avoid spoilers. But he does promise that the score “gets intense and more epic than ever. Musically speaking, this season will have new material that we haven’t heard before, but lots of the existing themes will also return.” 

With an endless list of characters, locations, incidents, and royal houses to create separate themes for, Djawadi had a herculean task. Djawadi’s score followed the development arcs of characters and changed as they grew in importance. In his words,

 “It started out intentionally small. But as the story expanded, the dragons arrived, the battles grew, the drama got bigger and bigger, the music had to grow with it. We added bigger orchestras, more choir, more instrumentation all around.” 

Now the drama and the battles all reach their zenith in the final season, and the score mirrors the epic quality of it.

Just how epic? We are talking a 60-piece orchestra, a 40-voice mixed chorus and a 12-voice children’s choir. This is the largest ensemble of musicians used in the show ever.

A scene from the iconic ‘Light of the Seven’ episode for which Djawadi’s score was a high point.

When Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss reached out to him back in 2011, Djawadi’s solo credits had been minimal, the TV series ‘Prison Break’ and the Marvel film ‘Iron Man’ among them. Back then he was better-known as assistant to the legendary Hans Zimmer. The now-iconic theme music was born while driving home from an initial screening of the pilot.

Djawadi’s mastery has only grown from there. Among his personal favourites from all the seven seasons are ‘Mhysa’, ‘Rains of Castamere’, ‘Light of the Seven’, and the love theme of Jon and Daenerys. With the final season promising to be bigger and better than ever, Djawadi’s sure to add some more to that list.

Game of Thrones was the biggest fantastical drama of the past decade. The show had the biggest budget and record viewership of all times. Scientists even researched to find out why the HBO epic was so successful. The series was recently crowned the best TV show of the 21st century by the readers of Digital Spy. The magazine got together several members of the cast of the show to commemorate the show’s success. The show’s cast revealed surprising details about the show. Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry Baratheon on the series, recalled his casting experience.

Dempsie told Digital Spy, “When they were originally casting for the pilot… I actually auditioned for the role of Jon Snow. It didn’t get very far and then when the series was commissioned. I auditioned for another two roles, before eventually being cast as Gendry. It just seemed like the creators had identified people that they wanted to work with. And then it was just a case of which piece of the jigsaw you fitted.”

Joe Dempsie was phenomenal as Gendry Baratheon on Game of Thrones. Would you have liked to see him play a different character? What about Jon Snow? Talk to us in the comments below!

There are times when life puts us in situations when we think about changing our path. Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn had to face something similar before he was cast into the show. His life changed forever ever since. In an interview with Digital Spy, Flynn revealed he was about to quit acting altogether before the show. (There are some others who almost quit after getting rejected for the series.)

Jerome said,  “I hadn’t been on screen for about 10 years. I was thinking I might leave the business behind. But I’d also poured all my savings into renovating an old farm estate in Wales. My agent called – there’s this thing called Game of Thrones, American, medieval. I was like, ‘Oh god really, that sounds dodgy’. And I had a lot of resistance going down to London to audition.”

“I opened up a kitchen cabinet onto my eye and gave myself a kind of black eye. I didn’t look at the script, but I put my hair back and suddenly felt like ‘Oh, I could be a badass’. They just saw the face and saw that and thought, ‘Ooh yeah, he’s a bit of a killer’. I think it helped also because Dan [Weiss] and Dave [Benioff] said they had no idea about my past, about Robson and Jerome or Soldier.”

“Somebody sent me some blog when I got cast, from English fans of the books… and then when they found I got cast, some were desperately upset. One guy couldn’t believe that Bronn could be played by me. And one guy actually said, ‘This is the worst day of my life’… they just couldn’t put those two, Bronn and Jerome, together.”

What do you think of Jerome Flynn’s Bronn? Tell us in the comments below!

The Long Night of 2020 has passed, but the effects are still lingering. The world is trying to get back on its feet with new hopes in the new year 2021. There are many surprises we have yet to face in the new year, but it seems like the Game of Thrones cast already has some secrets for us in store. Richard Brake, who played The Night King in season 4 and 5, talked to Digital Spy recently. He revealed he almost didn’t play the character at one point, and he’s thankful for that.

He revealed, “I had auditioned a couple of times before for the show in other roles. I got pretty close at one point. But I’m so grateful I didn’t get it… [that character] was nowhere near as important as I had thought when I auditioned. He did an episode or two and then died.”

“A few months later my agent called me and said, ‘They want to see you. Nina wants to see you again for Game of Thrones, but this time the character is in full prosthetics, he doesn’t speak, and he’s only going to be on screen for about a minute.”

He continued, “I thought, ‘What the f**k? [laughs] This is what it’s come to?’ ‘But he’ll be important at some point,’ she said. So I went in. They had me pretend to pick up a sword. I had to pretend to pick up a baby… and touch it. That was about it. But I had no idea that he was the king of the White Walkers, or that he would be eventually called the Night King.”
