NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2013) - A Game of Thrones is the title of the first novel in a series of fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin and first published in 1996. It became the title of the TV series adaptation created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, which premiered in US for the first time on April 17, 2011. Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, the series roughly follows the multiple storylines of A Song of Ice and Fire.
For season 1, Game of Thrones won 2 out of the 13 nominations for the 2011 Emmy Awards. That same year, the series won a number of other awards including three Scream Awards for Best TV Show, Best Supporting Actor (Peter Dinklage), and Breakout Performance - Female (Emilia Clarke). The HBO network has been consistently renewing the hit show every season for the following year as soon as the 1st episodes' rankings came in. To comply with this trend, they have recently once again renewed for season 4 to air in 2014.
Hollywood's Chinese Theatre gathered stars on March 18th, 2013 for the hit show's Game of Throne third season premiere party. Creators D. B. Weiss and David Benioff were joined by the writer George R. R. Martin as well as the rest of the cast and crew including Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, Natalie Dormer, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headley, Richard Madden, Gwendoline Christie, Sibel Kekilli, Carice van Houten, John Bradley, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Natalia Tena, Kit Harington, and Natalie Dormer among many others.
The 25-year old Emilia Clarke looked stunning on the red carpet with jewelry pieces by Jacob & Co. She perfectly accessorized her Victoria Beckham dress and Christian Louboutin shoes and bag with an exquisite Two Row Diamond Bracelet featuring 23 carats of square emerald and emerald cut diamonds. The British actress got her big break when she was cast as Daynerys on the HBO medieval fantasy series as a replacement to fellow Brit Tamzin Merchant who dropped out of the pilot for undisclosed reasons. Princess Charlene of Monaco has also sparkled wearing this same bracelet by the talented jeweler, Jacob Arabov, at the 30th Anniversary Princess Grace Awards Gala held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City on October 22, 2012.
