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 Game of Thrones 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 has aired its 8th and final season. Well, since its first season was released in 2010, GOT has arguably turned into a hit that it became the most pirated TV series of all time as there are a lot of websites--both legal and illegal--that let fans watch Game of Thrones online for free!
