Fans of hit HBO drama Game of Thrones were transported to Westeros by Facebook Live and Instagram during the show’s premiere event in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Sophie Turner, one of the stars of the series, introduced Facebook Live’s coverage before handing things off to host Veronica Belmont, and that video had topped 3.2 million views at the time of this post.

Nearly 2.5 million Facebook users had viewed the red-carpet video hosted by Belmont at the time of this post, as she spoke with Game of Thrones stars including Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams and Turner.

Facebook said in an email to SocialTimes that the Facebook Live platform at the Game of Thrones premiere event was flanked by a giant raven structure and an LED wall, and there was also a House of Black and White Instagram studio, which was the source of photos (embedded below) featuring Williams, Dinklage, Iwan Rheon, Liam Cunningham, Turner and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Finally, a video on the Game of Thrones Facebook page giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the series’ visual effects was approaching 2.5 million views at the time of this post.
