When you're successful, you get a lot of pitches from other people who want to be successful. A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin has been selling books for decades, so it's no surprise he's been approached by lots of folks wanting to get in on the action. Apparently, one of those wanna-be writers was a young Neil Gaiman.
Part of what makes George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, and HBO's Game of Thrones series based on them, so great is the fact that these characters are often in real peril. But that can also drive fans nuts—and this hilarious clip pokes fun at that fact.
As author of the acclaimed A Song of Ice and Fire novels, we already know George R.R. Martin can write. Now the man behind the series that has become HBO's hit show Game of Thrones wants to tackle another genre—comic books. There's just one catch.
A Song of Ice and Fire writer George R.R. Martin made an appearance at Worldcon Saturday and teased a few interesting tidbits about HBO's Game of Thrones' upcoming third season, including the coming of Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and much, much more. *SPOILERS AHEAD*
Did you ever wonder how in the Seven Kingdoms George R.R. Martin came up with the stories and the world of A Song of Ice and Fire? Well, wonder no more, as you can now watch Martin himself explain how it all came about.
Filming for Game of Thrones season three is now in full swing on location in and around Belfast in Northern Ireland and we've got the very first (and very cool) footage from the highly anticipated new season featuring none other than our favorite road-trip duo Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Ser Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).
Impressions can be tricky. Most fail, but occasionally, the magic just moves you. Here's a talented Canadian kid who's a regular one-man Westeros. Close your eyes and you'll swear you can smell the booze on Robert Baratheon's breath.
The first intriguing set photo from Game of Thrones' season 3 has emerged—and if that's not exciting enough, we also have some info on the locations (old and new) that'll be used for the next highly anticipated season.
The creators of HBO's Game of Thrones have managed to do a lot within the limitations of a cable TV series budget, and George R.R. Martin thinks they're doing a great job, regardless. But he does have one complaint—in his mind, he imagined the recent Battle of Blackwater to be a lot more epic than what made it to screen.
Just last week, Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall (who directed the superb ''Blackwater'' episode written by George R R. Martin) created quite a stir by revealing how there was a producer in charge of making sure the perv side of the audience got what it wanted from the show—namely lots of T & A and a good dose of female full frontal nudity. But what about male full frontal nudity?
