"Game of Thrones", HBO's popular and highly unpredictable TV series, exposes dirty politics up close, exhibits gruesome violence and gratuitous nudity, plus brings to life the most mythologized fantasy creatures of all time - the flying 'dragon':
The quality of "Game of Thrones" also ranks higher than most TV series due to the skill and professionalism of the main cast.

Theon feeling confident pre-Reek (Theon Greyjoy)
One of the most important qualities of an actor is the ability to reveal a dynamic range. No other actor in the series has shown more versatility than the character 'Theon Greyjoy' (Alfie Allen).
In the first two seasons, Theon is just a cocky young man whose aim in life is to please his new found family, including his 'father' 'Rob Stark'.
In the third Season, Theon becomes captive in the home of 'Ramsay Bolton'. During those years (Season 3 through 6), Theon devolves into 'Reek'.
This ability to slide into a new persona illustrates just how good the actor is, adopting yet another face in Season 7, when he rediscovers his true identity. Theon arguably is the biggest asset in the "Game of Thrones" series.
Time for a Bath (Jaime Lannister)
'Jaime Lannister' (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) did not have many memorable scenes during the first two seasons, apart from pushing a child off the window, sleeping with his sister and spending hours sitting in a pile of his own waste while in prison.
Things do change for the better in Season three when Jaime is given the task to save the daughters of 'Catelyn'.
Also in Season three, Jaime displays a fighting spirit, alternating from rebelliousness, to being sympathetic, carefree and manipulative.
It seems no other actor could have played 'Cersei Lannister' as effectively as Lena Headey, portraying a woman determined to fight for and consolidate her power at all times.
Due to her ever-present desire and hunger to dominate, Cersei becomes ruthless and brutal, while also managing to portray a sympathetic figure...
...during her notorious 'Walk of Shame' and her mothers' loss when she loses her children.
