1 Peter Dinkleydzh was the only one George Martin considered for the role of Tyrion Lannister. From the beginning, Martin felt that Dinkleydzh - the only one who can fully convey the character of Tyrion Lannister - the youngest son of Lord Tywin.Fortunately for the author, who had no other nominations for the role, the actor agreed to take part in the project.

2 George Martin wanted his novels filmed TV channel HBO. When Martin novels firmly entrenched in the bestseller lists, several well-known production companies offered to buy the rights to the writer for his works. But Martin felt that the full-length film will never be able to fully pay tribute to his novels. The writer said his agent, that his novels belong to HBO and did everything to make the show saw the light.
3 In 2012, 146 American baby girls were named "Khalis" after a character in the novel - the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen. The "Khalis" - this is not a name but a title.

4 Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, became the mistress of dogs playing her direwolf. As fans will remember, each child Eddard Stark had his direwolf. Pet Sanz called Lady, and her playing dog named Zunni. After character Zunni died, Sophie took the dog itself.
5 The series "Game of Thrones" is happening on Earth. In an interview with George Martin said that the action cycle of novels "A Song of Ice and Fire" takes place on planet Earth. It's just not "our" Earth. The writer does not want his novels look like sci-fi, so I decided not to use the term "another dimension."
6 Character Patrek with the Royal Mountain exists only through football betting. In summer 2010, George Martin and the Canadian blogger Patrick Saint-Denis made a bet concerning football. Martin put on the winning team New York Giants, Patrick - winning Dallas Cowboys. Dallas Cowboys have won the match. Martin, fulfilling the promise, came up with the character - the namesake of Patrick, and then brutally murdered him. "Royal Mountain" - a reference to the place of residence of the real Patrick - the city of Montreal, which translated from French means "royal mountain"). Coat of sire Patreka - a reference to the logo Dallas Cowboys, blue five-pointed star. It is curious that killed sire Patreka giant (giant).
7 Jorde Martin insisted that the show more attention was paid to the battle scenes. In his books, George Martin pays much attention to the description of large-scale battles and engagements, while the creators of the series prefer to save money on such things. It is not surprising that the writer was very much afraid that the battle scenes, will find no reflection on the screen and be replaced by something more deshevym.Telekanal HBO has not stinted and allocate sufficient funds to display the large-scale battles.
8 George Martin does not allow the series to influence what he wrote, because he is working on a series of novels "A Song of Ice and Fire" for more than 25 years. The exception was only Osh - one of the wildlings. As told to the author, he planned to make this character pass-through, but the show made him look at Osh other eyes, to see in it the depth and therefore take up more space in her novels.
9 Maester Aemon really blind. 90-year-old British actor Peter Vaughn, who got the role in the TV series Meister Aemon - old and wise servant of the Night Watch - as blind as his character. It was hardly a prerequisite for the role, but knowing love Martin to realism, it could well be.

10 Alfie Allen - who plays Theon Greydzhoya - the younger brother of the famous British singer Lily Allen. The girl wrote a song about it "Alfie)", the eleventh track of their debut album Alright, Still.

11 George Martin inspired "Miracle Man." In his youth, inspired by the writer one of the comic book characters Marvel - a member of the team "The Avengers" on behalf of Miracle man. Being the main character, he lived for a short time - as well as many of the characters' Game of Thrones. " In one of his interviews, the writer said that the "Miracle Man" liked him precisely because he died in the first story. The sudden death of the main character so impressed with Martin that he moved on to creating the tragic and doomed characters.
12 Catelyn Stark - mother of Hermione Granger. Many of the actors who starred in the "Harry Potter", also took part in the filming of "Game of Thrones". For example, Michelle Fairley, who plays Catelyn Stark, became a mother of Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) in the seventh film about the boy wizard, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
