Over the past few years, Game of Thrones has grown in popularity to become one of the world’s favorite television shows. It is not only watched by millions of people all over the planet but has received widespread critical acclaim for its characters, story and visual style. Based on the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R. R. Martin, the TV series tells the story of a group of important individuals from Westeros and Essos. Unlike many other televisions shows that have aired in recent times, Game of Thrones has a huge backstory and has become a huge cultural phenomenon. This means there is plenty of facts and trivia that most viewers simply won’t know about the franchise.
The Intro Is Constantly Changing
Unlike many other television shows that simply have a set title introduction, the one for Game of Thrones is constantly changing. Whenever new areas or locations are introduced into the show, the intro shows these on the large map that the camera pans around as the theme music plays. The idea for the map was to help viewers understand where everyone was in the show so they didn’t get confused while watching it.
George R. R. Martin Really Wanted Peter Dinklage
When it became clear that Game of Thrones was going to be developed into a television series, George R. R. Martin was adamant that only one person would be able to accurately portray Tyrion Lannister. He therefore did all he could to get Peter Dinklage involved to take on the role as quickly as possible.
