Guest Stars Worth Mentioning


The Game of Thrones TV show is based on George R.R. Martins famous A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novel series. The main focus lies on the noble families of Westeros – the Starks, the Targaryens, the Lannisters etc. – and their battles and intrigues to claim the Iron Throne. 

Yay or nay?

Neither the books nor the show are fit for fainthearted people – the fictional Game of Thrones universe is ruled by violence, cruelty and it seems that there is not one character, neither protagonist nor sidekick, who is save from death or degradation. “Kill your darlings” is the name of Martin’s game and that is what makes the story so unpredictable and addicting. You never know what happens next and what cruel twist of fate your favourite characters will have to weather. So grab a box of tissues and something to bite on to muffle any screams of outrage and tune in.
