10 Shocking Secrets About Your Favorite Game Of Thrones Characters


There are tons of Game of Thrones characters that have wowed us on screen. Check out some of these secrets you may not have known.

Kit Harrington almost didn’t play Jon Snow and the role almost went to Iwan Rheon who plays Ramsay Bolton. Jon Snow’s parentage has been hinted at several times throughout the series. None so much as when he is sitting in Castle Black and the initials of his parents were engraved on a beam above him. Tamzin Merchant originally played Daenerys Targaryen on a pilot that was never released because it was so bad. The producers eventually picked Emilia Clarke. Brienne of Tarth has a cool piece of family history being related to Ser Duncan the Tall who was a famous knight decades before the series began. Littlefinger can somewhat predict the future based on a quote he tells his step-son Robin Arryn about how people die. There were three people that died just how Littlefinger described. Emilia Clarke had to eat a 3 pound gummy bear that was supposed to be a horse heart when she was with Khal Drogo. The Mountain, Gregor Clegane, has been played by three different actors. Ned Stark’s remains are still unaccounted for and we are left to wonder what happened to them. Tyrion could be another Targaryen besides Jon Snow running around Westeros. The Stark children are all wargs in the books, not just Bran like we have seen in the t.v. series. Wow… lot’s of secrets, huh? Have you heard of any of these?
