Game of Thrones’ story involved a lot of political issues besides the breath-taking scenery and gruesome battles. The seemingly innocent Sansa had to grow up because of being continuously manhandled by monsters dressed as men. She became an efficient ruler as the Queen in the North.
Just as the meek and pleasing Sansa learned to stand up for herself, Sophie Turner, the actress who portrayed the character, doesn’t feel shy to express her political opinions in public. The 24-year old actress called out the US President Donald Trump for his schoolboy error during the final presidential debate.
Sophie, who recently embraced motherhood, posted a smiling Instagram selfie with the caption, “He called Europe a country!” Earlier, the Game of Thrones actress called Donald Trump a moron for encouraging citizens to drink bleach as a COVID-19 cure.
Twitter did not fall behind in following the Queen in the North in mocking the US President.
Hi, Trump. Just reminding you that Europe is a continent, not a country.

Who’s gonna tell @realDonaldTrump that Europe isn’t a country? #Debates2020

The US President has often been compared with villainous Game of Thrones characters like Joffery and Euron. The Game of Thrones cast has often expressed their dislike for Donald Trump, even openly calling him out for his statements and behaviour.

Game of Thrones wrapped-up filming more than a year ago. The last season was clouded in controversy, and the fanbase was divided into two factions. One loved the creativity of the showrunners, who completed the show before George R.R. Martin could finish his novels. The other campaigned for a remake of the eighth season. However, Marvel comics were seen poking fun at the show’s controversial ending. It was none other than the modern incarnation of the hero, your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, Miles Morales.
Miles was fighting one of the dragons of Symbiote God Knull, who is trying to conquer the earth in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #23. He not only survives the encounter without getting infected by the symbiote, but his joking ways during the battle do not disappoint. In true Spider-Man fashion, he yells out, “You mad cuz that show you were on keeps ending up on ‘worst TV endings of all time’ lists?”
Surprisingly, he starts to follow up with a hint that he actually liked the controversial ending. He says he doesn’t care what anyone says… but is unfortunately cut off when the dragon’s tail snaps his web. He goes full-on Daenerys when he uses his webbing to ride it.

When it comes to costume design and VFX scenes, no show even comes close to HBO’s Game of Thrones. The on-point casting, gruesome battle scenes and amazing storyline won the show record number of Emmy Awards. The amount of hard work that goes into making prosthetics is evident from the detailing on each character. The show once released a behind-the-scene promo showcasing the hard work of makeup artists. They were so good that Richard Brake’s co-stars didn’t even know it was him under the Night King get-up.
Brake told Digital Spy, “I was covered in prosthetics – massive fingernails; false teeth; literally the biggest contacts you could put in a human eye – they were agonising. So obviously the last thing I really felt like doing was sitting around and having chitchats between takes. I would just stay very quiet.”
He continued, “On one of the first nights we were shooting ‘Hardhome’, everyone was gathering in Belfast to eat, all the actors. I showed up a little late, of course, because it takes two hours to get the make-up off. And then I sat down, and, of course, Kit and everybody went, ‘Who the hell is this guy?’ They thought I was a homeless man on the street that just popped in to have a free meal. I said, ‘No, no. I’m the Night King. I was the guy who was chasing you off the pier all day’.”

They say laughter is the best medicine. Looking at the current scenario, it seems quite fit. With the pandemic on the rise again and no viable vaccine, smiles are the only cure we have. Comedians have often used parodies to induce laughs amongst the audience. Even TV shows and movies have their own parodies. Therefore, it’s not possible for a show as big as Game of Thrones to skip the radar as well. Moreover, it seems author George R.R. Martin is heartily amused as well.
On his personal blog Not a Blog, Martin confessed being parodied in a post. He wrote, “Way way back in 1969, when the world and I were young, the Harvard Lampoon did a hilarious send-up of Tolkien and LORD OF THE RINGS, called BORED OF THE RINGS. It is still in print all these years later. Spam and Dildo, Arrowroot son of Arrowshirt, Pepsi and Moxie… a hoot.
And now, I guess, it is my turn.
The Harvard Lampoon has turned its sights on A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and come up with LAME OF THRONES.
Yes, they sent me a copy.
No, I have not looked at it yet. I am working up the courage.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say… but the parody is right up there, so…
Thanks. I guess.”
