Peter Dinklage who plays Tyrion and Lena Headey who plays Cersei are not enemies in real life as they are in Game of thrones. As a matter of fact, the producers of the show mentioned that Headey was recommended by Dinklage for the part of Cersei. They’ve also been reports of both of them clowning all the time on set. Pulling of their character must have been a real struggle. We even hear that they deliberately avoid eye contact while on set together so as not to break out laughing.

Many fans of the game of thrones show hate King Joffrey because he was such a mean king. Well, we’re thankful it’s just a character. Many of the show’s cast reveal that Jack Gleeson, the actor of the King Joffrey role is a sweetheart off set. As a matter of fact, he is praised for his devotion and great execution of the role. We hear he drew inspiration from Gladiator’s character – Emperor Commodus and even mimicked the smirk of the Emperor which he displayed in the game of thrones show.

Remember Jon Snow and the wildling girl. Well, they got married. Their romance on set was definitely for real. It must have sparked something magical. They are married now and the entire game of thrones cast were in attendance to witness the beautiful event on the 23rd of June, 2018. Congratulations to them.

5. Feel free to learn Dothraki

I imagine how thorough the makers of the game of thrones show are. Dothraki has now become a real language that you can learn. David J. Peterson is the linguistic genius who created the Dothraki language for the show. I reckon he was so meticulous with the language and did not leave any phrase or word undone. Go learn Dothraki. You never know.
