If you maintain your eyes peeled off when King Joffrey takes Sansa Stark to look upon the spiked head of her dead dad around 12 mins in, you'& #x 27; ll notification that a person of the heads looks somewhat acquainted. Program developers David Benioff as well as D.B. Weiss clarified in their DVD discourse (from Period 1, episode 10) that the decapitated head is really George Shrub. This was found by redditor SidIncognito.
"The last directly the left is George Shrub. George Shrub'& #x 27; s head shows up in a number of beheading scenes. It'& #x 27; s not an option, it'& #x 27; s not a political declaration. We simply needed to make use of whatever head we had about."
We consisted of the video clip for you to obtain a far better appearance in addition to this close-up shot. Yes, that'& #x 27; s him. Yikes. What do you believe he did to piss off King Joffrey?
Update: We got a declaration from HBO:
We were deeply disappointed to see this and also locate it inappropriate, rude as well as in really poor preference. We made this clear to the exec manufacturers of the collection that said sorry right away for this unintentional reckless error. We are sorry this took place and also will certainly have it eliminated from any kind of future DVD production.And the manufacturers, David Benioff and also D.B. Weiss, additionally provided a declaration: What took place was this:
we make use of a great deal of prosthetic body components on the program: heads, arms, and so on. We can & #x 27; t pay for to have actually these all made from square one, particularly in scenes where we require a great deal of them, so we lease them wholesale. After the scene was currently fired, a person explained that a person of the heads resembled George W. Bush.In the DVD discourse, we discussed this, though we must not have. If anything we did or stated recommended or else, we suggested no disrespect to the previous Head of state as well as ask forgiveness.
