Game of Thrones was definitely the biggest TV show of the 21’st century. Very few shows come even close to the epic fantasy in terms of budget, cinematography, popularity, viewership, and the number of awards won. Game of Thrones still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won to date. However, the show had really humble beginnings considering the money-minting juggernaut it would later become. Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin still remembers the very first time he ever visited the show’s set while filming.

He recalls it was the scene where Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) talks to her father Ned Stark (Sean Bean) while balancing on one foot at the top of a flight of stairs. Martin told The Independent, “It was magical. It was like: here are my characters, they’ve come to life. They’re saying the things they said. The scene is pretty much as I imagined it when I wrote it. There’s nothing like that.”

Martin also talked about the prequel House of The Dragon, “We’ll see if they accept House of the Dragon as they did Game of Thrones. It’s different characters. It’s a different time. It’s the same world. It’s a different story. This profession is a gambler’s profession. You tell your story, and then you see whether they’re standing up and applauding or whether they’ve brought some rotten fruit to the theatre that they’re going to now pelt you with. If it is rotten fruit, you’ve just got to duck and run backstage and invent another story to tell the next time. That’s what I do. I’m a storyteller.”
