I’m very happy to be here, everyone Thank you, David and Dan, for introducing me last after these people camp out all night to see these people,
and then, at the very end, me! I thought you understood dramatic structure. It’s very nice to be here! Welcome to San Dee-ah-go Which, as we know, is as far south as south goes. Do you remember that it`s from season two isn`t it? I thought you guys knew about that. Welcome to the big one. Now of course we`re all here to celebrate Game of Thrones. I, I understand that many of you people today will know this show better than I do,may of course this people do. And certainly you will. I know there are people who are fluent in Dothraki out there right now. But remember we`re all in the same side. How often do you get.. do you get to see each other? any point there are all these different worlds that you exist Do you guys ever get to hang out together? In the bar. In the bar? Yeah. is there a bar like somewhere that isn’t in the title sequence that pops out and you know the right place to go yeah. its like the starwars bar but it’s the game of thrones bar I can imagine probably is. It’s called the white walker Now the things is you are.. I am surprised to see you here Rory given your what happened, you were left on the mountain side So I’m still sore I can’t believe that I’m here just. Yeah things weren’t looking to good the last time I saw myself so. I thought he got off lightly Nasty bitch Which one like me or her? I can’t believe I’ve been put between these two. I feel very very uncomfortable. George may I ask you a question? Yeah. When you began the creation of..all
of– this world of Westeros and all of the attendant
stories that happen therein did you envisage anyone to..look like these people? Does it look like the world you first thought of?
Does it feel like it? Well, more or less, but,..of course, not exactly. I mean, I started this in 1991
and the show–I didn’t even have my first..meeting with David and Dan until, I believe it was, so there were, like, 16 years before the show was a..twinkle in anyone’s eye and the show–I didn’t even have my first meeting with David and Dan until 2007, I believe it was, so there were, like, 16 years before the show was a twinkle in I believe it was, so there were, like, 16 years before the show was a twinkle in anyone’s eye and I had very strong pictures of what Westeros look like and what the characters looked like but these people have brought the characters to life– you know amazingly. Does it affect your writing since when you watch the show and continue to write? Does it inform what you do now? No,not really ’cause I do have those 16 years that sort of took deep root before the show came along. Sometimes it gets a little tricky, but the show is the show and the books are the books and I try to keep them separate. I know a few of the actors have read the books, but many of them don’t. Can I ask which actors here were reading the books before they became cast members on the show? Is that something you all do? or not, as the case maybe? It certainly isn’t prerequisite obviously You guys clearly were fans of the books, right? When did you first come in contact with them? The first book about eight years ago.
