DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that there was an unaired pilot for one of the most popular television series, Game of Thrones? Apparently, the pilot episode of the hit American fantasy series that we have watched was not the original pilot episode for the series. This pilot that never aired had some major changes including the casting for two primary characters, Daenerys and Catelyn Stark. The unseen pilot was directed by Thomas McCarthy and was filmed in Scotland and Morocco in the fall of 2009. Seeing how viewers fell in love and got hooked with the show, we can say that re-shooting the pilot episode was a great decision.
The book turned TV series is now on its 8th and final season. Since its first season was released in 2010, GOT has been doing so well. The success of the show can be reflected through the media franchise that fans all over the world are patronizing. Game of Thrones merchandise like shirts, toys, costumes etc. can be seen everywhere.
