Game of Thrones is a juggernaut in the entertainment world – and has a huge cast…but how many of them chill out
For at home entertainment, Game Of Thrones (GOT) is rare, it still commands a huge audience 3 years after its finale. Law and Order and a few others can claim such status, but it less than 1% of shows who become culturally huge. It’s consistently ranked high in engagement since it concluded and House of the Dragon,” a prequel series, is pacing ahead of Amazon’s “The Rings of Power” in demand. But who in the Game of Thrones universe uses weed?
The Game of Thrones universe can be stressful. You have to contend with everyone possibly trying to stab you in the back (literally), dragons, White Walkers, cult religions, murderous barbarians, incest, and every wedding you attend ending in murder. House of the Dragon is no easy picnic either. Fans are eager for the start of season two of Dragon.
The grand dame of GOT, Diana Ring, was a lifelong smoker of cigarettes to the end, but we have been unable to verify if she was a fan of cannabis. Peter Dinklage is a big wine buff, but no signs of an edible.

Playing characters on HBO’s GOT can be tense, which is why Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams incidentally became friends on the show. To detox from long days being Sansa and Arya Stark, the actresses would wind down like the rest of us—smoking some weed and acting silly.
“We’re kind of like loners on Game of Thrones, just because the past few seasons Maisie and I have sleepovers every night when we’re shooting. Or every night whenever both of us are in town. We just used to sit there and eat and watch stupid videos and smoke weed,” Turner said “I don’t know if my publicist will kill me for saying this. We’d get high and then we’d sit in the bath together and we’d rub makeup brushes on our faces. It’s fun.”
