21 March 2019, London: Jon Snow is the fans’ favourite to win the throne, according to 42% of Game of Thrones viewers. At 20%, Daenerys Targaryen came in a distant second, with the Night King coming in third at 19% followed by Queen Cersei in fourth place at 7%.
The survey of 400 UK adults found that 42% believe Game of Thrones to be the best show of the 21st century so far (19% had thought about it more than Brexit in the week prior to taking the survey). Plot (58%), acting (51%), scriptwriting (49%) and casting (48%) were ranked as the biggest drivers of its success.
Jon Snow was also Britain’s favourite character to negotiate Brexit, getting 41% of the votes, followed by Tyrion Lannister at 22%.
Jamie Field, MD of TopLine Film, which commissioned the survey said: “I love how optimistic the British public is about the good guy winning, but I just can’t see it happening. A happy ending would be highly unusual.”
The survey was commissioned by TopLine Film and conducted by Pollfish.
