    GAME OF THRONES: A DAY IN THE LIFE gives viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the epic scale of making GAME OF THRONES by spending one day touring the various Season 5 sets in Croatia, Spain, and Ireland. The 30-minute featurette highlights cast members as they prepare to shoot scenes, while prominent members of the massive crew share stories about the many jobs they must oversee, including sets, costumes, hair, make-up and much more, to keep the production running smoothly. 

    The GAME OF THRONES Compendium

    HBO’s The GAME OF THRONES Compendium is now open for submissions in Canada, U.S., The U.K., and Brazil. Fans are invited to submit an original GAME OF THRONES composition – artwork, photographs, crafts, music, or analysis – which will then be reviewed by a Council of Editors, including Zack Luve, Laura Hudson, Kevin Hatch, Greg Hildenbrandt, Arthur Chu, Gerald Brom, Tom Colicchio, and Nina Garcia. Winning entries will be included in a printed and bound edition, which will be made available later this year. The competition closes on March 28, 2024.

    The comprehensive Viewer’s Guide is a one-stop destination that offers fans the opportunity to explore each episode of GAME OF THRONES, Seasons 1 through 4. The site provides in-depth synopsis, character, and house information, interviews with cast members and experts like George R.R. Martin, the chance to explore locations like Castle Black and King’s Landing, photo galleries, and an informative appendix.
