It seems like just about everyone you know is absolutely obsessed with Game of Thrones. Already six seasons in, the show still hasn't lost any traction. How anyone could dislike this fantasy drama is completely mind-boggling to Game of Thrones' most diehard fans. Who wouldn't want to spend hours upon hours diving into fascinating theories on what will happen next to your favorite fantasy dynasty? But anti-Game of Thrones advocates pretty much are wondering the exact opposite. How could anyone stand this incomprehensible, overrated piece of garbage? This opinion is a lot less popular. You probably have that friend that loves to publicly express their hatred of Game of Thrones on the regular just for the sake of playing devil's advocate. But most just keep their mouths shut out of fear of backlash by a much more populous fandom.
Even celebrities like to get in on the Game of Thrones action. Mega-fans like Madonna, Seth Rogen, and Stephen King don't restrain their post-episode freak-outs, just like the rest of us. But there are also celebrities that latch onto the unpopular opinion that this show is trash. Even some current and former Game of Thrones actors have expressed contempt for the series that still likely cuts them a crisp 100k from time to time.Stannis Baratheon (that is, actor Stephen Dillane) is one of the most recent Game of Thrones veterans to admit that he doesn't even like the series. How anyone could dislike Game of Thrones is baffling enough. But how could someone who stars on the show dislike it, too? Well, Dillane isn't the only Game of Thrones alum who "doesn't get" the loyal fanbase. And he definitely isn't the only celebrity either. Here is a roundup of famous people who don't like Game of Thrones.
Oddly enough, Lucy Lawless isn't a huge Game of Thrones advocate, despite playing Xena the Warrior Princess. Even more concerning, Lawless added that she "tried, but there were dragons in it. [She] just can't get excited about things like furies and dragons. It put [her] off." Seems strange considering Lawless spent six seasons starring on her own fantasy series.
