-A A +A

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


IT HAS always been a hot topic since Game of Thrones (GOT) premiered its first season on HBO in April 2011. Based on the bestselling fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, it is an epic story of treachery and nobility, set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years. GOT gave a spectacular view that set fans adrift with its promise of epic and hardcore scenes.

The book presents the perspective of eight main characters and each portrayed role creates a massive response towards hardcore fans. In fact, if you watch GOT, chances are you’ve watched the show kill off a character that mattered to you. However, Showbitzer asked random GOT fanatics about who they consider the “most annoying” character and here are the top four of their answers. Shara Ana B. Castillo and Applemae H. Miego, USJ-R Mass Comm Interns
