10 Unforgettable Times the Game of Thrones Stars Hung Out in Real Life

Dec 26, 2016

As Jon Snow was named King in the North, Cersei Lannister ascended to the Iron Throne and Daenerys Targaryen began her journey across the Narrow Sea in the final moments of Game of Thrones' sixth season, the politics of Westeros suddenly became more divisive than ever. But while tensions between the characters of the HBO fantasy drama are mounting, the actors who potray them seem to only be growing closer.

Over the course of 2016, the G.o.T. stars spent a lot of time in each other's company outside of filming the show. From celebrating at awards shows to partying in Belfast to getting matching tattoos, here are some of the best moments from the group's real-life hangouts.
