The trio, George R.R. Martin, Lena Heady, and Michelle Fairley recently sat down at the Sydney Opera House for a 90 minute roundtable discussion of Game of Thrones. This one is worth setting aside the time of your busy day. (more…)
Can you feel that buzz in the air? We are two weeks out from San Diego Comic Con and every nerd, whether they be attending or not, is in a frenzy. Even the creators coming to share their wares at the con are getting a little antsy. George R.R. Martin, you may know him from HBO‘s hit television show Game of Thrones and that guy people yell at on the street to, “WRITE FASTER!”, has shared his Comic Con plans on his blog,
The next convention on my calendar is the San Diego Comicon.
My dance card is already almost full. Yes, there will be a GAME OF THRONES panel, and I’ll be on it. It is scheduled for Friday, July 19, 2:50 to 3:45, in Hall H To be followed by an autographing at the WB booth. Of course, I’ll be joined on the panel by half a dozen cast members (no, don’t know which ones yet) and David and Dan.
He provides some hints at what we can expect from Game of Thrones, like a panel in Hall H on Friday with David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and as of yet unannounced members of the cast. (What do you know? UPDATE! John Bradley, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, and Richard Madden will be in attendance.) Surprised? No way! After last season and all those records they broke of course the series was going to get a prime time and placement.
If we’re not discussing who’s going to be the next Doctor, we’re talking about The Red Wedding. It’s what the internet– nay, the entire nerd world has been abuzz about since Sunday night when Game of Thrones‘ most shocking episode aired. And if you haven’t yet seen said episode, I’d go click your way somewhere else. Believe me, you don’t want to be here. What follows will not only spoil what is a genuinely great surprise, it will also sink you into a depression so deep not even back to back to back editions of Sexy Cosplay of the Week could save you.
Okay, we’re all square with discussing the big turn of events from last week’s episode, “The Rains of Castemere“, yes? Good.
Let’s begin with what is easily the most adorable and hilarious reaction to The Red Wedding, and it comes from GoT‘s own Arya, Maise Williams (caution: auto play),
What? You’ve gone a couple days without anything new from Game of Thrones? Let’s change that. As the hype builds HBO has released another teaser to do just that, tease us with scant, quick clips from Season 3. And tease us they do, they damn near titillate us with that all too quick glance of Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) taking a bath in one of the series’ most popular scenes.
There’s also quick glimpse of Daario, a new “acquaintance” of Daenerys for Season 3, plus more Ygritte, Talisa, and Margaery. I think Natalie Dormer is going to be a scene stealer this season, I’m so excited!
Last week, the cast of Thrones was all over Entertainment Weekly, this week it’s TV Guide. There’s three covers available, one for each of three main houses: Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen, plus some truly stunning, black and white photos of the principal cast. Take a look through the gallery below.
When they took these beautiful photos, TV Guide also recorded some interviews with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Michelle Fairley, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington. Check it out!
