HBO’s latest blockbuster movie “Game of Thrones” is based on a best-seller series by George R.R. Martin. The bestselling author’s long-awaited fantasy adventure series about Westeros, the fictional continent ruled by seven dynasties, has captivated readers since its publication in 2021. HBO’s recent string of successful blockbuster movies, including “The Sopranos” and “Band of Brothers,” helped boost interest in Martin’s work to this point where even the most hardened fan has been won over. Now “Game of Thrones” takes the next step by delivering the ultimate showdown between good and evil, with characters ranging from simple housewives to royal families pitted against each other in an epic struggle for power and influence.
HBO’s third season of “GoT” chronicles the bloody civil war within the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros between House Cerwyn of the Iron Throne and House Martell of the Seven Hills. The fighting takes place in the streets and in the hallways of King’s Landing, the capital city of Westeros. The battles are brutal, and the losses are extensive. Thousands of people die during the conflict, many burned alive in flaming buildings, while others are killed by wildfire and abandoned on the shores of the sea. In the midst of all this chaos, the story of a young woman named Cersei has slowly developed, becoming more integral to the events unfolding.
Martin’s popularity has enabled him to write entire seasons of scripts, with the first two already released. The majority of his stories are set in Westeros, but some have traveled beyond that realm, to Egypt and other nations throughout the world. His work is praised in Hollywood, which has resulted in some of his characters being used in major films such as “Windtalkers.” This success has inspired more people to pick up his books, and Game of Thorns is no exception.
HBO has released several books in the A Song of Ice and Fire series based on the books. Martin has written the final two books in the series. The final book in the series, A Feast of Crows, was recently released in the United Kingdom. Although it isn’t expected to garner near the ratings of its predecessors, it is still a blockbuster hit. It has been nominated for several awards including Best Fantasy or Mystery Series but didn’t win any of those.
The success of the TV series has inspired fans to produce their own fan creations. The Game of Thorns collectible figure is one example of this phenomenon. The figure is made from a high-quality, extremely realistic silicone rubber. It features the main characters from the TV series, such as Cersei, Jon, and Tyrion. The figure also includes the Hound who was played by Peter Dinkins. The figure is designed to look like the characters actually sat down to think out their thoughts during the course of a typical reading session.
Other fans have made sculptures from the show. One such statue can be seen at the Fig Tree Gallery. Cersei, Jon, and Tyrion are set on top of a large, ice-blue marble. Another sculpture is located at the Waring House. It features Tyrion and Cersei as the ice-cold lovers.
