    So many great characters on this show. I liked Cersei Lannister the most. I found her character quite complex and enjoyed seeing how she became so hateful. And Lena Headey did a fabulous acting job with this character.

  10. Sheila Balkissoon • December 6, 2019 @ 10:16 AM

    Love the Nikolaj interview!! But his sis Cersei was my fave. Such an evil, cunning character. From beginning to bitter end.

    I liked Tyrion Lannister because he drinks and he knows things

  12. Deborah Chase • December 6, 2019 @ 10:40 AM

  23. Susie McAdam • December 6, 2019 @ 12:19 PM

    Daenerys who commits most of the best murders on the show, thanks to those dragons and her invulnerability to fire. And they’re usually justified.

  52. Jordan White • December 6, 2019 @ 4:30 PM

    Sansa Stark is my favourite GOT character! Not going to lie, she was questionable during the first season, but her character grew into one clever, bad ass, and it was amazing watching her become a strong woman.

  53. Linda Webster • December 6, 2019 @ 4:55 PM

  73. Mona Kaulback • December 7, 2019 @ 7:19 AM

    The Hound, because he wanted you to think he did not give a **** about anything but himself, but he really did show some feelings, great scenes when Arya and he were together

  74. Hal Jenner • December 7, 2019 @ 8:48 AM

    I love Cersei Lannister the best, so evil and fun to watch

  75. Darlene Heibert • December 7, 2019 @ 11:09 AM

    Tyrion was clever, he was the most ‘human’ of all the characters

  76. AD • December 7, 2019 @ 1:03 PM

    My favourite GoT character is Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons. She is a tragic figure, strong, intelligent, compassionate, strategic and such a badass. Hated how they ended the show.

  77. Margaret Smith • December 7, 2019 @ 1:04 PM

    Tyrian has a wicked sense of humour and he’s vulnerable too.

    Tyrion! He had the most personality!

  88. Don Werschler • December 8, 2019 @ 8:48 PM

    Tormund Giantsbane is the best. He’s funny and loyal and kicks ass the scenes in season 7 with the hound pure gold.

  89. Mairi • December 8, 2019 @ 10:54 PM

    Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams. Commanding presence in the book and on screen.

    My favourite character is Sansa, as I loved seeing her grow into herself and take charge.

  96. Joy • December 9, 2019 @ 5:24 PM

    It’s definitely Amelia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen. As someone born in the “Year of the Dragon”, I admired her acting as the “Mother of Dragons”!

  97. Darlene Heibert • December 10, 2019 @ 10:49 PM

    Tyrion, loved the way he killed his dad

  98. T. Terry • December 11, 2019 @ 6:26 PM
