Game of Thrones is one of the most expensive shows ever produced, as well as one of the most popular to date. Seven has been a magic number for the series since the beginning. There are seven planned books for A Song of Ice and Fire, seven gods in the series' mythology, seven kingdoms in Westeros, and so far seven seasons of the show. There are also a ton of secrets and behind the scenes details in the archives. Here are seven of the biggest secrets about Game Of Thrones that fans might not have known previously.
My personal favorite facts about Game of Thrones is how much acting crossover there's been between it and other nerd properties. For instance, there are 10 actors who appeared in Harry Potter movies: Natalia Tena, David Bradley, Julian Glover, Michelle Fairley, Ciarán Hinds, Ian Whyte, Ralph Ineson, Edward Tudor-Pole, Bronson Webb, and Jim Broadbent.
There are also eight actors who have crossed over with Star Wars: Gwendoline Christie, Max von Sydow, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Miltos Yerolemou, Jessica Henwick, Emun Elliott, Mark Stanley, and Hannah John-Kamen. Yes, the Game of Thrones cast is so big they have 18 crossovers with two of the biggest nerd properties out there, and yet none of them is the same actor twice.
