Tis true – check out this photo from the team over at THE WRAP who found tis little nugget out! On a documentary on the making of the show reveals that the creators certainly did a likeness of the former U.S. President George W. Bush.
“George Bush’s head appears in a couple beheading scenes,” adds co-creator D.B. Weiss.
“It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement,” explains Benioff. “It’s just, we had to use what heads we had around.”
In an interview with TheWrap earlier this year, Weiss and Benioff said they tried not to deliberately inject politics into their show, based on the novels of George R.R. Martin. – Tim Molloy, THE WRAP
