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.
