Originally posted 08/17/2014 04:05PM

Game of Thrones fans are a prolific and determined bunch. How prolific and determined? Well, at the recent Edinburgh International Literary Festival, the author of the epic fantasy saga, George R.R. Martin, says he's stopped reading online message boards for the show because, to his chagrin, he discovered a few fans have already accurately predicted how the series will end.

Game of Thrones's Khaleesi vs. Singer Kelis: How to Tell Them Apart

Originally posted 05/30/2014 04:05PM

Thanks to the popularity of Game of Thrones, more people are naming their babies after Daenerys Targaryen than ever before. In 2013, more than twice as many parents chose to name their baby girls "Khaleesi" than chose its soundalike "Kelis," according to data from the Social Security Administration.

So, future parents, here's a refresher on Kelis vs. Khaleesi. (And yes, we know "Khaleesi" is only a title. We'll have no complaining from book readers on this point.)

Game of Thrones's Kristian Nairn Is Happy to Fight Gay Stereotypes

Originally posted 03/24/2014 03:30PM

His character Hodor on HBO's Game of Thrones is a gentle giant who lives and serves in the shadows. But after revealing that he's gay, actor Kristian Nairn has been catapulted into the spotlight.

"It's been everywhere, PEOPLE, CNN, all the way down to the little local paper in Belfast," the Irish actor, 38, told PEOPLE on March 18 at the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones at New York's Lincoln Theater. "I don't want to be a figurehead or anything, but if I can help one person, I'll be happy."

What he seems to be helping with most is combating stereotypes.
