Game of Thrones is possibly the most-watched television series airing today. But, as with anything, there are some things we’ll bet you didn’t know about the world of Westeros.
#1.) You haven’t seen Kit Harington’s butt
Everyone’s favourite Crow, Kit Harington plays Jon Snow and, back in season 3, we saw his bare buttocks while he and Ygritte explored some caves. Sadly, that wasn’t his ass, but that of a crew member, who was forced to stand in after Kit broke his ankle.
#2.) There are multiple adult stars in the cast
This one makes sense, given Game of Thrones reputation for bare flesh. Award winning adult performers starred as prostitutes, and Sibel Kekilli, who played Shae, Tyrion Lannister’s ill-fated lover, was herself an adult star.
#3.) Game of Thrones is the most-pirated show in the world
More people download Thrones than any other show. In 2012, one single episode was downloaded over four million times, and this number tends to go up season by season.
#4.) The scripts were stolen
In 2011, George R.R. Martin posted on his blog that two scripts – the scripts to the last two episodes of season 1, were stolen out of the post. All the author received was an envelope, torn open at both ends. He asked his fans to keep their eyes open for the scripts on auction sites, but they never turned up.
