Spoiler alert: Jason Momoa didn't last very long on Game of Thrones, but like Sean Bean - who lost his head as the righteous Ned Stark - the previously unknown actor created one of the series' most memorable and iconic characters, despite not even surviving season one.

Yes, Khal Drogo's run was short but sweet, and it's not hard to see why Momoa desperately wanted the part.

Despite being brought down by an infected boo-boo, Drogo was arguably the ultimate badass on a show littered with badasses. Plus, he got to see Emilia Clarke naked on multiple occasions.

Not a bad gig. Perhaps that explains why Momoa went full-Dothraki psycho while he was auditioning:

Hmm ... too understated. Can you try that again with some feeling?!

For a few terrifying days over the summer, it looked as though the highly-anticipated Lena Headey nude scene might be cut from the fifth season of Game of Thrones.

"Why?!" the people shouted. "Lena Dunham is naked on HBO all the time and no one asked for that!"

GoT's King's Landing storylines film in Dubrovnik, Croatia a city where local church authorities apparently rule the land with a Joffrey-like contempt for all things awesome.

The Dubrovnikians nearly put the kibosh on Cersei's naked stroll through town for religious reasons, which would've forced us all to go back and watch 300 again if we wanted to see Lena Headey's boobs.

Fortunately, freedom and happiness prevailed, and producers were somehow able to convince the citizens of Dubrovnik to let the scene happen in a different part of town.

Twin Peaks is, shockingly, returning to the small screen.

The iconic, short-lived drama (which aired on ABC in 1990 and 1991 and which focused on a murder in a mysterious, fictional Washington town) will be revived by Showtime in 2016.

Co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost confirmed the news via joint statement today, while both will write all nine new episodes and Lynch will direct every episode.

"The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you," Lynch and Frost said. "It is not a remake. The story continues. The seeds of where we go were planted where we've been."
