Most likely to succeed… Best hair… Least likely to be turned into a White Walker… Most likely to ride a dragon that isn’t Daenerys Targaryen….
See, folks? Being on Game of Thrones is just like going to high school. Just like a ladder, surviving Westeros and Essos is pretty much akin to trying to rise within your ranks and earn a seat at the popular table at lunch. It’s tricky business even without a Littlefinger or Varys by your side, because the cafeteria is dark and full of terrors (and we’re not just talking about the mystery meat). And just like how we have no idea who will end up on top of the Iron Throne, so, too, is the mystery surrounding who’ll make it out of high school alive and thriving.
Which is exactly why we tasked the cast of Game of Thrones with coming up with high school-style superlative awards from the sprawling cast of characters on the HBO series. It’s anyone’s guess who’ll walk away the champion (for now/if at all), but that’s half the fun, right?
Come for the silliness, stay for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos the Onion Knight) needling us for questions that could ~possibly~ be misconstrued as relating to Jon Snow. We know nothing of the sort!
By the way, want to hear about our latest Jon Snow theory?
Who do YOU think is most likely to be turned into a White Walker? Let us know your thoughts and theories below and stay tuned to even more footage from the red carpet premiere of Game of Thrones all week!
