Season 1 was all Ned, promo art, commericals, you name it. Since then, I'd say Dany was the one who grabbed the reigns. Every article I read has her picture in it, every finale except one has featured her. Emilia gets most of the interviews on talk shows and exposure in the main stream media. After her I'd say John, Tyrion and then Cersei. Thoughts?

Dany and Tyrion, Jon has been kind of a letdown. They have altered his story and Kit has a hard time portraying him.

So far it's been just like the books:

 

Season 1/AGOT: Ned

Season 2/ACOK: Tyrion

Season 3/ASOS-part 1: Jaime and Dany

 

Season 4 will probably be Jon and Tyrion.

 

All seasons combined, I think Tyrion would be the face of the show. He has the most stable storyline and the largest screen time.

Everyone I talk to (who hasn't read the books) mentions Tyrion first and Dany second when they discuss the show in general.  I think Tyrion would be an accurate answer.  He's been in the most episodes.  Everyone knows who he is.

Tyrion is clearly the main character after Ned died, but his face (even if handsomer than the novels) still isn't quite "movie star" handsome, so he gets competition from Dany in that department (Jon also, but to a lesser extent).

I think some posters misunderstood my question. It's not who is the main character inside the storyline, it's who is the most featured character when it comes to advertising, exposure, commercials, toys etc. When the media talks about GoT who is the character they put forth the most?

That's easy. Tyrion, Dany and Jon respectively.

Unfortunately it's Tyrion and Dany, with Jon following behind. 

 

I would hope for Season 5 that Jon is the 'main face'.

Agreed. I will add Joffrey, specially in YouTube. They make fun of him a lot. People "love to hate" him.

Dany and Jon - most of the interview articles include them together. However, Dany has been the main one. It does seem that Jon will get better material this season, so he might get increased exposure.
