Apart from the historic costumes and props used in GoT, there is a surprise element in the show to which most of Indian fans were unaware. Apparently, Australian actor, Conan Stevens who was seen in first scene of the show has appeared in three Bollywood films.

Conan was seen in Abhishek Bachchan starrer 'Drona' as Asura in 2008, as Joey in Akshay Kumar starrer "Chandni Chowk to China" in 2009 and even in the recently released 'Brothers' as fighter Luca.

Conan who is fond of watching Hindi films expressed his experience of watching Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Black', "I had seen Amitabh in movies before but never really recognised him. Black was the first modern movie I saw him in, and wow! I know it did not do too well in cinemas but what a great movie."

He believes that the movie raised the bar for Hindi movies internationally. After watching 'Ra.One', Conon realised the technical capability of Bollywood. While shooting for 'Drona', he was recommended to watch 'Om Shanti Om' which later became one of his all time favourite films.

He said, "I went to watch Om Shanti Om (2008) in a cinema in Mumbai while I was there to film Drona (2008). This remains one of my all time favourite films to this day."

Conon also expressed his love for Australia-Indian actor, Bob Christo and believes that he could keep the legacy going. "I would like to be like him (Bob Christo) in present day Bollywood," he said.
