  • The Québec Winter Carnival inaugurated the impressive iron throne honouring HBO’s Game of Thrones today. The iron throne replica was created by ice sculptor Marc Lepire to mark the official launch of the fourth season on Blu-ray. The sculpture has been erected near Bonhomme’s Palace, in the Loto-Québec Zone, and will remain there throughout the 17 days of the Carnival. More than two and a half tons of ice were used to create the life-size replica of the iron throne, which measures 8 feet high and 5 feet wide. With their luminous Effigy, visitors will gain access to the site and be able to admire the masterpiece as of 7 p.m. on January 30th. They will also have the opportunity to sit on the throne, but only during the last weekend of the Carnival, February 14th and 15th, to preserve the sculpture.   “It’s an honour to collaborate with HBO on this project, and we’re pleased to be able to participate in the promotion of this popular series. With more than half a million visitors each year, the Québec Winter Carnival is the perfect event to welcome this impressive replica of the iron throne, which will certainly attract sightseers and fans of the series alike. Congratulations to Marc Lepire who created this magnificent artwork in only one day,” explains Isabelle Hurtevent, President of the 61st edition of the Québec Winter Carnival. “What a great surprise to see this notorious camera crew choose Québec, the winter capital, to launch its 4th season! As Director of the Office du tourisme de Québec, our objective is to ensure that Québec stands out internationally through its unique touristic attractions that are constantly being enhanced. We’re proud that Game of Thrones recognizes the innovative side of our tourist attractions, namely with the only ice hotel in North America, which is renewed yearly, and the world’s biggest winter carnival, with more than 200 activities for all ages. Thank you for promoting Québec all over the world,” mentions André Roy, General Director of the Office du tourisme de Québec. The Lepire family: generations of sculptors  Michel Lepire created Sculpture Michel Lepire Inc. in 1994. Sculpting began as a hobby and then snow, ice and sand sculpting finally took over his career in the hotel industry. This passion for sculpting was contagious and in 1998, Marc joined his father in the company business, which now includes his two sons of 12 and 18 years old. Michel and Marc’s common passion led them to participate in various competitions and demonstrations worldwide. In his sculptor profile, Marc Lepire has won 9 first place prizes, 7 second place prizes, 4 third place prizes and 11 public awards. Marc Lepire has been creating the Ice Palace for the last three years, along with all other sculptures and ice sculptures on the Carnival sites. “There’s no age to play, have fun and be dazzled!” they say in agreement.  HBO “The Iron Throne has become an iconic structure of Game of Thrones, HBO’s award-winning series,” notes Brian Blazik, Vice-President of HBO Home Entertainment for Canada and Latin America. “We reveal a unique interpretation of an ice throne at the Québec Winter Carnival – the world’s most popular winter celebration – to launch the 4th season of one of the world’s more popular television series. Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season will be available on Blu-ray and DVD and on digital HD in Quebec and Canada on February 17th.” Here are a few facts and numbers: - Game of Thrones is the best selling television show in Quebec and Canada on Blu-ray. - Quebec represents 20 percent of Blu-ray sales for Game of Thrones in Canada - On average, some 1.2 million viewers tuned in to each episode of the 4th season of Game of Thrones, earning it the title of the most watched series in Canada’s pay-TV history.  - Nearly one million viewers watched the last episode of the 4th season, making it the evening’s most watched pay-per-view/specialized show.  - The last episode of the 4th season was also presented in Cineplex movie theatres in Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces, attracting more than 11 000 people.  - To this day, the series has been nominated 42 times at the Primetime Emmy Awards, including four times in a row for the best drama series, and won 10 statues. #gots4carnavalqc  www.carnaval.qc.ca
