20 ‘Game Of Thrones’ Facts That Even Lord Varys Doesn’t Know.
There's no gray area when it comes to Game of Thrones fandom: Either you never watch the show and couldn't tell the difference between Daenerys and Drogon, or you're a mega-obsessed nerd who has watched the series at least four times and spends their nights at the bar theorizing what's going to happen to the characters in the future.
If the latter sounds like you, you're going to be super into this list. It includes tons of little-known Game of Thrones facts that you can bring to the discussion at the next Westeros-themed party.
From actor feuds to what Hodor does in his spare time (besides, you know, holding the door), these facts about the show and the actors in it are pretty surprising. It's also pretty awesome to think about these people outside of the context of the Seven Kingdoms. See some of the surprising facts below. Just a warning, though: The last one is going to stress you out a little.
#1. The Night's King is used to being a villain.
Richard Brake, the actor who plays the terrifying leader of the White Walkers, also played Joe Chill in Batman Begins. Unsurprisingly, that character actually killed Batman's parents.

#2. Emilia Clarke has a topless clause in her contract.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, actually has a clause in her contract about how many times she can appear topless in a season.
#3. Alfie Allen is Lily Allen's little brother.
One the show he plays the tortured and castrated little brother, but in real life Alfie Allen is the singer's little bro. She actually wrote a song about her brother called "Alfie."
#4. Ser Ilyn Payne is a rockstar IRL.
We hate his character because he's the one that executed Eddard Stark, but the actor, Wilko Johnson, is a rock guitarist that we can totally get down with.

#5. Jojen Reed was also the voice of Ferb on the Disney Channel show Phineas and Ferb.
You may also remember him from the hit holiday movie, Love Actually, in which he plays a lovelorn little dude intent on impressing his woman.
