A Game of Thrones is something of a fix for a lot of people. However, even though this series is one of the most anticipated by many viewers all over the world, there are some interesting and funny facts that are not known by even the show’s biggest fans.
If you are a fan of the Games of Thrones, be sure to take a peek at the following facts you probably didn’t know about this program.
#1) A Game of Thrones was Supposed to Be a Movie
A lot of you may already know that this widely popular TV series is based on a series of novels called “A Song of Ice and Fire” written by George R.R Martin. However, what you might not know is that the author was first approached by producers who wanted to make the series into a movie saga, after the first book was released. Martin refused their offer because he thought that too much of the series would have to be cut out for a film adaptation. Later on, Martin agreed and gave his consent to the books being adapted into an HBO TV series.
#2) Peter Dinklage was the Only One to Audition for the Role of Tyrion Lannister
One of the main reasons why this television is loved so much is because it has actors who perfectly fit their characters. And one who is particularly good at this is Peter Dinklage or Tyrion Lannister. But the interesting fact about Dinklage is that he was the only one who producer David Benioff considered for the role. The producer has pictured Dinklage as Tyrion right when he was reading the novel and had contacted him immediately afterwards for a spot on the TV show. Dinklage accepted and no one else was even auditioned for the part.
#3) The Producers of the Show Know How the Series is Going to End
Both David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been told how the rest of the series is planned out by George Martin in case he dies or has an accident before he is able to finish the series. Talk about being realistic and down to earth!
#4) A Language Creator Was Hired to Write the Dothraki Dictionary
To make the entire show a lot more realistic, producers of the show took a step forward and decided to hire a language creator who could write a dictionary of the Dothraki language for the scripts. David Peterson, who is a language creator, was hired, after which he created over 3000 Dothraki words and grammar rules, all of which are used in the show.
