It’s hard to think of Game of Thrones as anything but a success. It’s had many successful seasons, has won numerous awards from many different awards groups, and each and every season is more anticipated than the last. But, it’s also a known fact that Game of Thrones got off to a very rocky start. As it had a pilot that was apparently so bad, they had to make MASSIVE changes to right the ship.
This was noted by Jon Snow actor Kit Harrington, who was part of that unaired pilot. Among the things that were wrong were wrong castings, wrong portrayals, bad scenes, the whole nine yards. He told The Guardian:
“They made a lot of mistakes. It didn’t look right, didn’t feel right, had nothing different about it,” Harington said.
Funny fact, he was clean-shaven in that unaired pilot, and they made him wear a wig. For the second pilot, he actually grew out his beard and hair so he could look more the part. Oh, and it was apparently SO bad, that the directors are using as leverage to never tick them off:
“They say, if I ever piss them off too much, they’ll release it on YouTube,” Harington said. “Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat.”
The final season of Game of Thrones is set to begin production soon.
