George R R Martin, whose novel, A Song of Ice and Fire, was adapted as everyone’s favourite TV series, Game of Thrones, worked in Hollywood for about 10 years. All his first drafts tended to be either too big, or too expansive, and he hated having to cut them short. So, one fine day he said to himself, “I’m sick of this, I’m going to write something that’s as big as I want it to be, and it’s going to have a cast of characters that go into the thousands, and I’m going to have huge castles, and battles, and dragons.”
As any GOT fan would vouch, the bigger the better. The infighting among the Houses Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Bolton, Greyjoy, Baratheon or Tyrell can only be experienced in their full glory with colourful characters – John Snow, Arya Stark, Tyrrian and Khaleesi – and a dramatic musical score, to match.
The success of the TV series has spawned a desire for all things GOT. Even former US President Barack Obama was not immune to it, as was evident from the image published by the White House to coincide with a GOT episode in 2014.
