You will never guess the source of Drogon's voice in Game of Thrones!



Game of Thrones is a grand show and a lot of detail goes into making the show. The production has departments fully equipped with handling every bit of the production. Now, we have seen the amazing dragons that the show had, and we’ve taken a peek behind the making of these fantastic creatures before, but we now have a revelation that is quite surprising. The source of Drogon‘s voice in the show, was recently revealed by Paula Fairfield, the sound designer for the show. Read on!

Fairfield recently gave an interview to WYNC’s Radiolab, where she discussed the inspiration for the voice of Dany’s main beast, Drogon. Now, we know Drogon is named after Khal Drogo, Dany’s old lover, and Drogon has always been closer to her than the other two. Apparently this intimate connection between the two was tapped to design the sound of Drogon’s voice. The sound, is derived from the sound of turtles mating :

“I have sounds I might choose simply by certain personality traits that I might want to push forward. She named that dragon after Khal Drogo, her hot late husband, so Drogon is like her lover. He’s whistling at her all the time, he’s whistling at her butt and saying, ‘Ooh baby.’”

She continued :

“The groan of the male actually became, with some work and adjustments and stuff, the basis of Drogon’s purr with [Daenerys].”

She also explained the need to have distinct voices for the dragons :

“They’re very powerful, they can be very scary, they can be very destructive, but what’s kind of magical in Game of Thrones is that the intimate scenes also melt your heart and bring you closer to these characters that should be burning your face off.”
