¡Nothing like the Games Of Thrones fever these days! We know the HBO series is a great success around the world, with an eager audience worth of millions every Sunday and merchandising worth millions too. We want to know who is going to sit in The Iron Throne Of The Seven Kingdoms. Will it be Daenerys or Jon? Or the abominable Cersei? Let’s take a moment away from conspiration and war to see the 30 Most Bizarre Moments Behind The Scene Of Game Of Thrones. Brace yourselves, spoilers might be coming. 

#30. The Mother Of Dragons

Emilia Clarke plays one of the most important roles in the series: Daenerys Stormborn Of House Targaryen, The First Of Her Name, Queen Of Andals And The First Men, Protector Of The Seven Kingdoms, The Mother Of Dragons, The Khaleesi Of The Great Grass Sea, The Unburnt and The Breaker Of Chains. After all this presentation, we know that Daenerys is one of the candidates to sit in The Iron Throne for sure.

In season 1, we were shocked to see Daenerys emerging unharmed from the fire of the funeral pyre for her husband, Khal Drogo, with three beautiful hatched baby dragons. Of course, we know they are not real and here, Emilia is showing us what dragons in the series really look like.

#29. Sansa Needs A Moment To Rest

We have seen the transformation of Sansa Stark, the eldest daughter and second child of Lady Catelyn and Lord Eddard Stark, and we are not surprised by the leadership she has taken in the last season. We all remember the first appearances of her where she wanted to be like Cersei Lannister.

The person behind the character is the actress Sophie Turner. We know all these hours of shooting days must be really exhausting, and the actress decided to laugh at herself and show how exhausting it can be to plan all the strategies to protect Winterfell.

#28. They Got You, Liam Cunningham!

Liam Cunningham is in the role of Ser Davos Seaworth. The character was at the service of Stannis Baratheon, the Lord Of Dragonstone and then became the principal advisor and right-hand man of Jon Snow.

We can’t think of another person more suitable for the role Liam has. He just nails it! The adorable and servile Ser Davos has been with us during the latest seasons and we hope it continues like this. Seeing Davos braking character is very funny. Even most serious men need a moment of jokes!

#27. Chilling Up With The Red Woman

Melissandre (aka The Red Woman) became an important character, played by the actress Carice Van Houten. In the series, we saw her as a close counselor to Stannis Baratheon in his campaign to take the Iron Throne.

Over the seasons, Melissandre appeared in the critical moments of the series and became an important character that will make you question if you should love or hate her. However, even The Red Woman needs a coffee break to think about her next conjures with the help of the Lord Of Light.

#26. A White Walker On The Rocks, Please

We said that GOT created a world of different types of merchandise, such as clothes, toys and even drinks! Nikolaj Coster-Waldau took advantage of this as part of the new edition of Johnnie Walker, The White Walker Edition.

Nikolaj is in the role of Ser Jaime Lannister, the eldest son of Tywin Lannister and twin brother of Cersei Lannister. His character has been through different kind of emotions during the eight seasons, from being an inquestionable devote of Cersei to support show his support to Winterfell.

#25. Let The Brothers Be United

The Lannister house was one of the most powerful houses in all Westeros. Cersei, Jamie and Tyrion are an essential part of it. We have seen how the relationship changed between them and how Tyrion became independent from the Lannister House.

For us, this is a perfect picture of the Lannister sibs, all reunited and loving each other. Of course, we know that this doesn’t happen in the real series. The real persons behind the scene are Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey.

#24. Having A Nice Moment Together

Emila Clarke is known among her partners as a funny and joyful person. She always shares moments with different actors, most of them, behind the scenes.

It was a surprise when she shared a photo in the Liam Gallagher’s concert with the actors John Bradley and Conleth Hill! This proves that their friendship is not only behind the scenes!

#23. The Love Story We All Want

We have to be completely honest and say that we all want Brienne Of Tarth and Jamie Lannister fall in love. They make the perfect couple to fight and defend Winterfell. Of course, we know that Jamie will have to make a decision between Brienne or Cersei.

At least we have this adorable pic of Gwendoline Christie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wearing the same Little Pony shirt and give us a different image of the most wanted couple of GOT. Let’s continue with our list! 

#22. Best Friends Forever

The HBO series has made a really interesting transition between the fight for the power and the role of women. The female characters have indeed been winning much power and main roles during the eight seasons. Here we see the BFFs Khaleesi and Missandei having a fun moment, having a sword and matching outfits!

The actresses behind the roles are Emilia Clarke and Nathalie Emmanuel, who are the new promises of Hollywood. After 8 years of sharing hours of recording and many hours of promotion events, they became really close friends and we are sure they will continue being BFFs after the show.

#21. When Dany Was Lift Up By Khal Drogo

We all remember in season 1 the marriage between the innocent Daenerys and the head of the Dothraki, Khal Drogo, often referred to as “The Great Khal”. We also saw the end of this couple and how The Mother Of Dragons couldn’t love anyone else…

Here we have a lovely moment between the couple, or well, between Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke in front of the Iron Throne. Who wouldn’t want to see this couple take the precious throne and rule the Seven Kingdoms? In real life, Emilia often posts pics with her onscreen husband.

#20. The Mother Of Pooch

The Mother Of Dragons sent a message to join her into the set of Game Of Thrones and we are sure someone responded to this amazing opportunity. Like Daenerys said: “I’m such a kind and loving leader”. In addition, we don’t see the Khaleesi’s children but we see the real company of Emila during the set, her adorable dog, Molly.

Emilia Clarke affirmed in many interviews that she loves being close to the fans of GOT and she is very grateful for the love they give her and all the rest of the caste. After all, fans have demonstrated their love through more than eight years! 

#19. Will You Bend The Knee To Daenerys?

Along the eight seasons, we have seen Khaleesi building up her own base of power with the help of her most loyal friend, Ser Jorah Mormont. The final season will reveal who will be the King or Queen of The Seven Kingdoms.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Meanwhile, the Breaker Of Chains will continue asking everyone if will they bend the knee… In this case, in the set filming! Actually, Emilia was sending a message to the fans to participate in a contest where they would have the opportunity to meet her and be part of the behind the scenes of GOT.

#18. Gemma Whelan Taking What Is Hers

Gemma Whelan is the actress behind the Yara Greyjoy from House Greyjoy of The Iron Islands. Her character has shown strong power and determination and did not doubt to help Daenerys to her claim for the Iron Throne. Her character is part of the female roles that became important during the last seasons.

Gemma Whelan declared in some interviews that she didn’t know if her character would be returned after in season 5 because she didn’t have many appearances in the previous seasons, but finally, this happened in the season 7. Here we see a little demonstration of the essence of Yara.

#17. The Red Woman Protects Herself From Sun

Carice Van Houten is in the controversial role of The Red Woman, an advisor of different Kings and Priestess of The Lord Of The Light. She is one of the actresses that enjoys sharing a lot of moments behind the scene.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Here we see The Red Woman protecting herself from the sun… Of course, we know that’s Carice, otherwise, it would be really strange to see The Fire Lady herself escaping from the sun!

#16. The Red Woman And Joffrey

Jack Gleeson was in the role of the King Joffrey Baratheon. His character was one of the most arrogant, coward and sadistic in all GOT. But we have to say he was a really good actor who made us believe in his role.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Here we see Joffrey sharing the Iron Throne with The Red Woman. What would happen if this image became true? Who knows! And also, we can see a more human side of Joffrey! 

#15. The Team We All Want To Be In

During the eight seasons of Game Of Thrones, we see new characters appearing and beloved characters dying, but at least, at the final season, we still have Brienne, Sansa, Tormund, the Night Watch Commander Edd, Ser Davos, The Red Woman, and Jon Snow.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Here we witness a relaxed and funny moment for the gang, away from the fire and war against the White Walkers. The persons behind these characters are Bren Crompton, Gwendoline Christie, Sophie Turner, Kristofer Hivji, Liam Cunningham, Carice Van Houten, and Kit Harington.

#14. Winter Is Coming

The locations of Game Of Thrones are amazing and unique. We actually watch real unknown places where they often film. For example, in season 1 filming took place in Malta for scenes set in the Free City Of Pentos and King’s Landing. The production chose different locations to show the difference between the houses.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

The home base for the production of GOT is in Belfast, at the North Of Ireland where we see places like Winterfell, Castle Black and the High Hall Of The Eyrie. Carice Van Houten is proving us that production takes really serious the script and she has to resist the cold weather with a hot water bottle! Of course, the Priestess of The Lord Of Light wouldn’t like the snow.

#13. You Know Nothing Jon Snow

The love story between The Mother Of Dragons and the son of Rheagar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark will finally have a resolution. We don’t know if Dany will accept the fact that the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne is Jon Snow or if she is going to fight for it. Anything could happen in this season!

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

In the meanwhile, Jon and Dany are sharing a funny moment behind the scenes. The actor Kit Harington is actually married to Rose Leslie, the actress who played the role of Ygritte during the first seasons. Apparently, Jon Snow finally knew something!

#12. The Giantsbane Needs An Umbrella

Sometimes even the warriors need a yellow umbrella to protect themselves from the snow! We said the production takes seriously the location of the episodes and they try to make everything look impeccable. Even Tormund needed protection from the fake snow!

This pic is from season 5 and that man well-dressed is one of the directors of photography that worked in episodes like Hardhome and Battle Of The Bastards. We love the fact that Kristofer Hivju shares a lot from behind the scenes. Let’s continue reading our list!

#11. Let’s Take A Selfie

Iain Glen and Kristofer Hivji showing us how they got fun behind the scene! Their characters Jorah Mormont and Tormund became really important during the last seasons of GOT. Especially, they were part of the army to defeat the White Walkers.

Iain Glen said in many interviews that he loved to play the role of Jorah Mormont, even if the character suffered the lack of love from The Mother Of Dragons. Keep on watching the behind the scenes of GOT, you don’t want to miss what is next!

#10. Let’s Take Another Selfie

Apparently, Kristofer Hivji likes to share time with his partners while they are filming. Here we see a lovely pic between him and actress Bella Ramsey. How cute they look together!

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Bella plays the role of Lady Lyanna Mormont, the youngest Lady Of Bear Island from the House Mormont. Her character is one of the female characters that won space and strength during the seasons. Lady Mormont has shown us that you don’t need to be big to be a brave person!

#9. A Selfie Lover

Okay, we promise this is the last selfie of Kristofer, but we have to say we love how he shares funny moments behind the scene. In this case, he is celebrating the birthday of Liam Cunningham with a warm message and pic.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

We are sure that making this series must be really hard work during the filming, behind the scene and post-production of it but one thing that we can be absolutely sure is that the actors love each other. In many interviews, the actors declared that they loved to be part of the series, even if they were just for one season!

#8. Tommen Baratheon And Septa Unella

Apparently, King Tommen Baratheon is not ashamed of taking a photo with Septa Unella behind the scene! We all remember the remarkable scene of The Walk Of Atonement and the seasons where the High Sparrow took the High Sept and ended in a war between the Iron Throne and the official religion.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Here we are witnessing a relaxing moment between actor Dean Chapman and actress Hannah Waddingham. Both of them became famous after their appearance in GOT and now are still working on screen. Hope we see more of them!

#7. Strike A Pose

We all have been witnesses of the adventures of Daenerys Targaryen in her fight to win the Iron Throne. Along the seasons she has been fighting against the slavers to free the slaves, like the army Unsullied who stand by her since season 3.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

But every person needs a moment away from responsibilities, even The Breaker Of Chains! Here we see the persons behind Missandei and Grey Worm, the actress Nathalie Emmanuel and the actor Jacob Anderson. Their characters are the most loyal advisors and friends of Daenerys but they are also good friends in real life!

#6. Hodor Can Stand Anything

It’s impossible not love Hodor, played by the actor Isaac Hempstead. His adorable devotion to protecting Ned Stark’s son, Bran Stark never once went unnoticed. Actually, the two of them have shared the screen in most of the seasons. Eventually, the became really close friends in real life.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

The actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright is in the role of the new Three-Eyed Raven, which was essential in some parts of the series. He is not the innocent kid we met in season 1 anymore. Keep on reading the last 5 moments behind the scenes of GOT!

#5. Tommen Baratheon Knows How To Rule

Although Tommen Baratheon was the King Of The Seven Kingdoms for very little, we all remember his reign. Maybe he was the most honest Lannister member to became the King. What would have happened if he continued as a King?

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Of course, also the kings need a moment to chill out from their obligations as Tommen Baratheon does in this pic. Definitely, the actors spent a lot of time during the set!

#4. Nothing Like A Vacation Between Father And Daughter

Sometimes between scene and scene, you have free time to spend with your partners, like going to the nearest beach from the set! Here we see Lord Tywin Lannister sharing a nice moment with his daughter Cersei Lannister, or well, actor Charles Dance and actress Lena Headey.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

These two actors have been really close since they shared most of the scenes from the first seasons. We can tell they really enjoy their time in and out from the screen! Don’t miss the last 3 moments behind the scene!

#3. Having Fun Together

During the last 8 years, we have seen different intricate plots, new characters, and new amazing locations. We all remember House Of Hightower and House Martell, they gave us the most memorable characters that we still remember, like Oberyn Martell and Margaery Tyrell.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Here we see a pic of three actors behind these characters and also Sansa Stark. Apparently, Pedro Pascal, Natalie Dormer, and Sophie Turner would meet behind the scenes in 2013 and they shared a nice moment together.

#2. The Red Woman Doesn’t Like The Cold

Most of the seasons of GOT happened during the night long or, as the normal people call, the winter. As we said, most locations in the series are real, and actors actually suffered the weather. Don’t believe us? Just look at actress Carice Van Houten.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Apparently, this headgear it’s really popular onset between the actresses of GOT in order to take care of their hairstyles. Imagine all the hours they spent preparing for their roles, it wouldn’t be fair that rain or snow mess up their previous work!

#1. The Side B Of Daenerys

We all want to know what is going to happen in this season and we can’t wait to see who is finally going to be the King or Queen from the Seven Kingdoms. As we said Daenerys Targaryen is one of the candidates to win it if she doesn’t lose control.

Photo: Courtesy of Marie Claire.

Maybe in the final episode, we’ll see a Dany like the photo Emilia Clarke shared on the Internet. A relaxed Daenerys, wearing a comfortable dress and bandana, thinking what will she give her dragons for dinner. Who knows? We have to wait for the final episode!
