If you've yet to start watching Game Of Thrones, here are 7 reasons that might coax you into giving it a try...

Have you been following Game Of Thrones on the telly? If so then chances are you already know how amazing it is and thus will have no need for this article.

If, however, you have yet to start watching it here’s seven reasons that will hopefully coax you into giving it a try. Yes Game Of Thrones is violent, full of bloody battles and lots of durty sexy time but aside from all that it’s a show that has a fantastic plot, some great characters and some seriously hot men.

Don’t believe us? Here are 7 reasons why you need to start watching it stat!


Reason #1: Jame Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)

Yes, he’s a bit of a d**k. He has a super-weird relationship thing going on with his twin sister, but he’s pretty easy on the eye is he not?

Reason #2: Robb Stark (Richard Madden)

He’s brave, he’s bold and he’s ridiculously attractive. Oh and just in case you haven’t heard the latest news, Richard Madden (the actor who plays Robb Stark) has just been cast as Prince Charming in the new Cinderella film.

Reason #3: Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen)

Ready to have your mind blown? This Alfie Allen, aka, Lily Allen’s little brother (yes, the one she wrote that song about). He’s an acquired taste you could say but trust us, little Alfie Allen is ALL grown up in Game Of Thrones.

Reason #4: Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa)

He’s the King of the Dothraki, he knows how to handle a horse and just look at that body…

Reason #5: Gendry (Joe Dempsie)

We loved Joe when he played the part of Chris in Skins and we love him even more as Gendry in Game Of Thrones. He’s a blacksmith, he’s cute and he’s all about helping his friends.

Reason #6: Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen)

Even though he’s a little haggard, you just can’t ignore his that strong jawline. He’s classically handsome.

Reason #7: Jon Snow (Kit Harrington)

We had to save the best reason till last. Meet Jon Snow (aka Kit Harrington). That hair, those eyes, that body. Swoon! Ladies, if ever there was a reason for you to start following Game Of Thrones this is it. Trust us. You wouldn’t kick Jon Snow out of bed for eating a packet of crisps, that’s for sure!
