Game of Thrones is the name of the massively popular HBO TV show created after the Song of Fire and Ice book series. Written by George R.R. Marten, he has become an icon for fantasy novelists and the concept that no-one is safe. Known for its incredibly story, brutality and plot twisting events, this series gained massive popularity seemingly overnight after being adapted to a live-action platform. With stunning locations the show has been filmed in Northern Ireland, Croatia, Iceland, Morocco, Spain, Malta, Scotland, and the United States. Premiering on April 17, 2011, it has continued to gain fans for its five seasons, with at least two more planned. Set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, the game of thrones depicts several ruling families from the seven kingdoms and their back-stabbing, manipulative and brutal efforts to secure the iron throne for themselves. These families include members from House Lannister, Stark, Baratheon, Greyjoy, Targaryen, Tyrell, Tully, Bolton and more to come. Awards granted to this show include several Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series for its first four seasons, Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series in the category of Drama, Peabody Award, and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in both Long Form and Short Form.
Jon Snow is one of the most popular and fan-favorite members of the Game of Thrones Cast. After the systematic murder of almost every male member of his family, he remains as the oldest and strongest Stark lineage. Named John Snow because of his inception outside of his father, Eddard Stark and not-biological marriage. Being an illegitimate son, he had no right to his fathers legacy as the honorable lord of Winterfell. With no future with the Stark family he left to join the men at the wall, a garrison of similarily unwanted men that guard the impossibly large snow wall separating the northern territory from the Wildlings and other terrors living north of the wall. They protect the kingdom from the scifi elements of the Game of Thrones realm, and as of the conclusion of the most recent season, this is becoming harder and harder to do.
