1. Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon) received a letter from author George R.R. Martin after the show aired, stating: "Congratulations on your marvelous performance. Everyone hates you!"
2. According to Kit Harington (Jon Snow), his performance in the rejected pilot episode was so bad that the creators often jokingly threaten to release scenes of it on the internet if he complains too much.
3. When Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) first met Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) he rugby tackled her to the floor of the Belfast hotel yelling "WIFEY".
4. Writer George R.R. Martin was approached several times with plans to adapt his (still unfinished) book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" into a movie, but he rejected them all, as he thought his books were much too expansive to be made into a movie. When David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told him that they wanted to make a series out of it, he asked them who they thought Jon Snow's mother could be. Satisfied with the answer, he agreed to sell the rights to the book.
5. After filming her final scenes as Daenerys Targaryen, Emilia Clarke got a tattoo of three dragons on her wrist.
6. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) has been nominated eight consecutive times (once for each season) for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmys. He won for the first, fifth, seventh, and eighth season, setting a new record for most wins in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category for the same role.
7. Wilko Johnson (Ilyn Payne) retired after the second season because he was diagnosed with cancer. While Payne appears in subsequent novels, his role in the series was effectively replaced with Bronn (Jerome Flynn), who instead accompanies Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) on later missions.
8. A gelatin "heart" was made for the scene in which Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) must consume a horse's heart raw. Although it was safe to eat, Clarke said it was still foul-tasting enough that her facial expressions and gagging while forcing it down required no acting for the camera.
9. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) were wed on June 23, 2018, in Scotland. They fell in love while playing the dynamic couple on-screen and he popped the question in September 2017.
10. Composer Ramin Djawadi said that after initially watching some visuals of the show, before starting to compose it, the idea for the main title theme just came to his mind and he whistled it while he was driving his car to the studio, where he started to write the piece.
11. Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) originally auditioned for the role of Robert Baratheon.
12. Charles Dance was appalled and disgusted at Lord Tywin's treatment of his son, Tyrion. He remarked that it was extremely difficult for him to mistreat a genuinely nice man like Peter Dinklage, so much so, that Dance kept apologizing to Dinklage between takes.
13. There was a rumor that, before being cast, Lena Headey (Queen Cersei Lannister) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) were in a relationship that ended on such bad terms that each had a clause inserted into their contracts that they were never to share scenes and must remain apart on-set. Flynn has however stated this is not true, saying "We were actually in the same scene together, and the last time I saw Lena we were speaking, so I wouldn't believe everything you read, and like I said, [the media] can get pretty desperate for stories."
14. The series has come under repeated criticism for its explicit depiction of physical and sexual violence. Especially recurrent scenes of rape caused large amounts of controversy. Writer George R.R. Martin has defended his artistic choices by saying that he wants to put his readers right into the action, rather than create a safe distance from events by merely summarizing them. He maintains that although his Song of Ice and Fire books (and the series by extension) are epic fantasy, he based them on actual history, where "rape and sexual violence have been a part of every war ever fought". He also claimed that the atrocities in the books, sexual and otherwise, pale in comparison to what can be found in any good history book: "the true horrors of human history derive not from orcs and Dark Lords, but from ourselves. We are the monsters. And the heroes too." He also stated that it is the choice of showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss what scenes from his books they adapt, and how.
15. The average cost of production per episode of the show, up to season six, was around six million dollars, with the most expensive episode being season two, episode nine, "Blackwater", which cost a reported eight million dollars. However, HBO decided to set a budget of one hundred million dollars for season six, which meant each episode of the season had an average production cost of ten million dollars. This put the show on par with Friends (1994) as the most expensive television show of all time (although most of the budget of "Friends" went to its stars' salaries rather than the production, as in this show).
16. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) have matching tattoos of the date 07.08.09, the day they found out that they were cast on the show.
17. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) was doused in so much fake blood heart-eating heart-eating scene in season one that she got stuck to a toilet seat during a break.
18. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) was voted by fans as the series' most hated character. Headey has said that she is often the victim of fans who direct their hatred towards her character to her personally. People frequently call her names online and in public, and at fan conventions, she is more than often shunned. She claimed that during an autograph session at Comic-Con, people were snatching their books from her hands to prevent her from signing them.
19. Maester Aemon Targaryen of the Night's Watch was revealed to be blind in the novels. He was played by Peter Vaughan, who was partially blind.
20. Emilia Clarke revealed that the makers have shot different endings and have not confirmed to anyone which would be final.
21. Jack Gleeson based Joffrey Baratheon on Joaquin Phoenix's Commodus in Gladiator (2000).
22. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) had been friends for years before the show, having worked together on Ultra (2006) and Pete Smalls Is Dead (2010). It was on the set of the latter that Dinklage first read the pilot and he subsequently recommended Headey to David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
