Game of Thrones is getting a monthlong 10th-anniversary celebration on HBO
Quote

It's been almost two years years since Game of Thrones went off the air, but April 17 marks the 10th anniversary of the epic fantasy show's original premiere. And HBO is celebrating in style with the Iron Anniversary, a month's worth of events to revisit the series, raise money for charity, and get fans ready for the coming spin-offs like House of the Dragon.

As of Monday, HBO Max has launched a new Game of Thrones Spotlight Page that highlights fan-favorite episodes, behind-the-scenes documentaries, and recommendations for other HBO Max offerings that viewers of the show might enjoy. For instance, those who identify most with House Stark and adventurous children with grand destinies are pointed towards His Dark Materials and Watchmen, while audiences who most enjoy the backstabbing and incestuous infighting of House Lannister are directed to Succession.

On April 10, HBO will launch the Game of Thrones #MaraThrone (get it?), airing all episodes of season 1 starting at 10 a.m. ET on HBO 2. After that, fans are challenged to complete a full series rewatch on their own using HBO Max. They'll be getting some major encouragement from the show's cast members, who will chime in over the following two weeks to encourage viewers to complete their marathons and also contribute to any of 10 charitable causes: Women for Women International, World Central Kitchen, Conservation International, International Rescue Committee, UNICEF, FilmAid International, SameYou, Royal Mencap Society, National Urban League, and the Trevor Project.

A Decade of Game of Thrones- looking back at the show’s journey through the eyes of the cast
Quote
Game of Thrones was a mystical journey for both the fans and the cast alike. The fantastical series was a blissful escape from reality for a wide variety of audience. HBO is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Game of Thrones as the Iron anniversary. There will be month-long events and Game of Thrones specials all through April. HBO released a number of videos today featuring the cast of the series looking back at the show’s run. Let’s check them out!

Rory McCann (The Hound) recalled being nervous filming the first episode. He was starstruck by actor Sean Bean, and his horse Fat Bob ran into a pear tree:

Game of Thrones fans will love what Sky Q has lined up for the show's 10th anniversary
Quote
From today, Sky Q users can say one of 25 favourite quotes and phrases from the epic Game of Thrones series into their voice remote to access special GOT content, including all eight seasons as well as some specially created featurettes and extras.

Game of Thrones first appeared on our screens 10 years ago, so to celebrate Sky Q has created this specially created GOT voice destination centre, easily accessed by one of the 25 phrases, including ‘hold the door’, ‘the north remembers’, ‘winter is coming’ and, of course, ‘you know nothing Jon Snow’. Sean Bean accents are apparently optional.

Curated pieces include best battles, most shocking episodes and iconic character moments. There's also the reunion episodes, a 'beyond the wall' featurette, and of course, all eight seasons of the show to binge.

Game Of Thrones' rich list is revealed after stars earn millions following their stint on HBO show (And Sean Bean comes out on top despite only being in ONE season!)
Quote
The rich list for the cast of Game Of Thrones was revealed on Tuesday, following the tenth anniversary of the fantasy epic.

A number of the lead stars have earned millions following their stint on the HBO hit, not only because of their appearance on the show but also through investments and brand deals.

According to the list, which has been calculated based on the actor's general net worth, Sean Bean came out on top of the rich list despite only appearing in the show's first season after amassing a staggering £19.6 million fortune.




Sean, meanwhile, tops the list with a total net worth of £19.6 million, thanks to his incredible lucrative acting career.

As well as starring as Ned Stark in the show, Sean has also appeared in iconic films like the Lord of the Rings franchise, and James Bond flick Goldeneye.

Since appearing on Game of Thrones in 2011, Sean has gone on to star in a number of shows like Netflix's Snowpiercer and even produced drama Time for the BBC.
