Game of Thrones Season 3 Grand Maester Pycelle

BuzzFeed has posted one of their exhaustive lists, this time for “49 Things You Never Knew About Game Of Thrones.” Now, if you’re familiar with the HBO series, then it’s likely that you already know a lot of the facts on the list, since the information has been circulating online for a few years now.

For instance, Sophie Turner, who plays who plays Sansa Stark, adopted the dog that played her direwolf; the “horse heart” Daenerys eats was made out of a gummy bear–like substance; Peter Dinklage is vegetarian; and George W. Bush’s head was on a spike in Season 1.

But, there was one item on the list that totally blew my mind — 79-year-old Julian Glover, who plays the seemingly frail Grand Maester Pycelle (who you’ll recall was told by Cersei Lannister during the Purple Wedding to feed the leftovers to the dogs), had recognizable roles in both Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Take a look at the images from those films here below.

Doctor Who Star Wars

Thanks to my DVD subscription to Netflix, I’ve had the splendid opportunity over the last couple of years (as other fans have no doubt) in being able to rediscover and revisit some episodes of Classic Doctor Who, some of which I’ve not seen in decades.

In the course of these nostalgia trips, I began noticing that there were quite a few actors who were popping up in many of the classic serials that had also played a role in some of the Star Wars films. On top of that, there has been some Star Wars actors show up in the new series as well.

About a year ago, I came across a few submissions at the Doctor Who Subreddit over at Reddit.com – notably this one and this other one – showing the crossover of Doctor Who actors who had also been in Harry Potter.

Consequently, in the lead-up to the premiere of Series 7, I decided to put together a bit of a timey-wimey infographic matrix thingy that looks at the crossover of actors between Doctor Who and Star Wars. Hope you like it, and feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

RELEASE DATE: March 6, 2012

I’ve made it no secret how much of a fan of HBO’s original programming and similar shows I am…to the point of it being difficult for me personally to even watch regular network/cable TV shows not named The Walking Dead anymore. Two of my favorite current shows are on HBO, one being Boardwalk Empire and the other being, big surprise and SPOILER ALERT: Game of Thrones.

And while it’s silly of me to give away my feelings on the first season of the series so early in my review, allow me to tell you why I’m so googly-eyed over this wonderful, wonderful world.
