Iron Throne (A Song of Ice and Fire)

Iron ThroneThe Iron ThroneIron Throne (''A Song of Ice and Fire'')
The success of the HBO television adaptation Game of Thrones has made the show's version of the royal seat an icon of the entire media franchise. Martin said in 2013, "Say Game of Thrones, and people think of the HBO Iron Throne." Martin called the depiction of the throne in his 2014 A Song of Ice and Fire companion book The World of Ice & Fire "absolutely right". He has noted repeatedly that none of the previous media representations of the throne—including books, games and the TV series—closely resemble what he had in mind when writing his novels. In the series, the Iron Throne is both a physical seat of office as well as a metonym for the monarchy of Westeros.

Since HBO's more successful series (most notably shows such as Sex and the City, The Sopranos, The Wire, Entourage, Six Feet Under, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and True Blood) air on over-the-air broadcasters in other countries (such as in Canada, Australia and much of Europe—including the United Kingdom), HBO's programming has the potential of being exposed to a higher percentage of the population of those countries compared to the United States.

Ned Stark

Eddard "Ned" Stark is a fictional character in the 1996 fantasy novel A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, and Game of Thrones, HBO's adaptation of Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. In the storyline, Ned is the lord of Winterfell, an ancient fortress in the North of the fictional continent of Westeros. Though the character is established as the main character in the novel and the first season of the TV adaptation, Martin's plot twist at the end involving Ned shocked both readers of the book and viewers of the TV series.

John Bradley (English actor)

John Bradley
Bradley's big break was in the 2011 HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones playing the character Samwell Tarly, a part that was his first audition, three months after he graduated from drama school. His character is a friend of Kit Harington's Jon Snow and provides occasional comic relief, especially in season 1. As the series has progressed, Bradley's Tarly has developed significantly. One reviewer called him "a wonderful comedic and cowardly yin to Jon's dour yang". George R. R. Martin said that the character that Bradley portrays is the character he would be, if he were on the show.
