Who doesn’t love George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones? If you are a GOT fan then you probably watch it as the first thing when any episode is available.  The recent season 7 finale episode has crushed the fans in an outstanding way. And here we present you some weird facts about the best TV series of all time-

  1. It’s not known to many that the show has its own rap album. Yes, you can have your favorite show’s rap album. HBO released it for free via Soundcloud in 2014. Artists including Big Boi, Snoop Dogg and Method Man contributed in it. The name is also very catchy –“Catch The Throne.”
  2. On the show Lena Headey ( Cersei Lannister) and Peter Dinklage ( Tyrion Lannister) are siblings and they hate each other so much that they will take any chance to kill each other. But surprisingly in real life, they are friends even before the show started and Peter suggested Lena for Cercei’s role. They are even roomies when they shoot.
  3. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) once said that, in one particular dreadful scene she was so much covered in fake blood that during a break she got stuck in a toilet seat and had to take help to get out of it. Certainly a quite oddly funny situation for all.
