Game of Thrones has proved to be a television phenomenon, confirming itself as the most awarded series in the history of the Emmy Awards, winning 12 statuettes. The franchise’s eighth and final season won the award for best drama series four times.
Among the prizes are those for the best special and visual effects, costumes, and make-up. Peter Dinklage was awarded four times as Best Supporting Actor, thanks to his masterful interpretation of Lord Tyrion Lannister, the third son of Lord Tywin Lannister and his wife Joanna, nicknamed ‘Elf’ because of dwarfism.
Given its vast success, Game of Thrones has also inspired the entertainment industry. On the Internet, you can also find a deep analysis of the House Targaryen family tree, which proves how much passion the series triggered in people worldwide.
Shot on location in several countries, such as Ireland, Spain, Croatia, Morocco, Iceland, and Malta, the series was visually stunning.
A couple of years ago, Gosford Castle, where Rob Stark sentenced Rickard Karstark to death for treason, was put up for sale for £500,000.
House of The Dragon
Although the last season was relatively controversial, the series’ enormous success led to HBO creating a spin-off known as House of The Dragon. The new series tells the origin story of the Targaryen family, the wealthy ancestors of Daenerys.
Before starting this project, HBO was already working on Bloodmoon. This television series tells the origins of the seven kingdoms, from the rise to the fall of the ancient heroes, starring Naomi Watts, Miranda Richardson, and Naomi Ackie.
However, despite being ahead in the development, the project was canceled, as the script was fictional and did not reflect the work of American writer, screenwriter, and producer George R.R. Martin.
Based on the book ”Fire and Blood”, House of The Dragon was launched with the first season of 10 episodes set 300 years before the events that took place in Game of Thrones. Fans of the series will also be glad to know that director Miguel Sapochnik will helm most of the episodes.
The characters most appreciated by the audience
There is great excitement among fans of the saga who hope not to be disappointed and to become attached to its new characters.
Among the most beloved protagonists of the saga, there are certainly Jon Snow, played by the British actor Kit Harington, with whom the public has sympathized despite his perennial air of sulking, and the Mother of Dragons, Princess Daenerys Targaryen, played by actress Emilia Clarke.
The actress Maisie Williams, in the role of Arya Stark, is a little girl who often shows off all her courage on the battlefield to avenge her family, and her sister Sansa, the eldest daughter of Ned Stark, is also very popular with the public. Played by actress Sophie Turner, who, after surviving despite some unpleasant events with Queen Cersei, Prince Joffrey, and other characters such as Ramsay and Littlefinger, manages to hunt the grit and abandon that aura of Disney princess that had distinguished her in the first seasons.
A presence that has undoubtedly made the difference from the first to the last season, honored by critics and enjoying great success among fans of the series, is Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage, a brilliant character considered the black sheep of the Lannister family in because of his physical appearance as well as his honesty that always led him to controversial positions and worrying about going against his family, full of dark characters like his sister, Queen Cersei.
Another character on which viewers have changed their minds about is Jaime Lannister, brother of Cersei and Tyrion, played by actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, whose transformation from an evil character to one who, over time, finds the desire to protect and stay by the side of those he loves.
House of the Dragon is the follow-up of one of the essential visions ever appearing in the TV series world. The fact that so many people talk about it passionately represents proof that the initiative was worth it and full of meaning. We don’t know yet what will happen in the future, but this is likely not the end of the story.
