Only Wildlings Use Android – ‘Game of Thrones’ Cast Members Choose iPhone

iPhones rule Westeros.

iPhones rule Westeros.

Apparently, the folks who star in HBO’s hit drama, Game of Thrones, are pretty smart, as five of the six castmembers interviewed before the premiere of the first episode of the upcoming third season admit to using an iPhone over an Android. Of course, Rose Leslie, who plays the part of savage wildling beyond the wall, Ygritte, uses an Android device. Figures.

Techcrunch’s Ryan Lawler and Anthony Ha got to stand on the red carpet with the cast, and were able to ask them any questions they liked. Of course, they wanted to know which brand of smartphone each actor used.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie Lannister on the show, did say, however that while he uses an iPhone, he wasn’t necessarily “voting” for it. Go Nik!

Young Maisie Williams, Arya Stark to those in the know, says her favorite app is Cut The Rope, while Rose Leslie, the lone Android user, likes Fruit Ninja best. Margaery Tyrell actress Natalie Dormer uses WhatsApp to keep in touch while on press tours like this one, while Kit Harrington, the conflicted Jon Snow, really digs Hugmail. He must send a lot of hugs.

While the actress who plays Catelyn Stark says that she doesn’t use the internet at all, she does use her iPhone to shop, mostly with Net-A-Porter, an app to buy and send fashion stuff right to her house. Kingslayer Coster-Waldau uses Endomondo to keep in fighting shape, and admitted to buying tickets for the train in Denmark, where he lives.

So, there you have it. The uber-popular, super-hip actors and actresses prefer the iPhone, five to one. It’s not like we didn’t already think the same thing, but it never hurts to share these kinds of facts, right?

    But everyone says that the iPhone is losing its cool because the display is too small to be useful. Apparently, people with 20/20 vision can no longer read type on a Retina display.
