Comic-Con 2013: Game Of Thrones

The second of my Comic-Con related blogs and this one is focusing on current HBO juggernaut, Game Of Thrones ...

Attending this year again was showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, writer George RR Martin and actors Richard Madden (Robb), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), John Bradley (Samwell), Kit Harrington (Jon) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) and once again, the crowd definitely loved them in abundance. In terms of spoilers, it doesn't seem like we got too much compared to last year. Discussion mainly seemed to stem on the events of the Red Wedding, with Madden himself admitting he "cried a lot" during the making of the episode.

Other stuff that was mentioned on the panel included George RR Martin himself mentioning the possibility of continuing the series beyond the last two books he has in store for us. By that he meant exploring the series far distant past rather than a prequel though. In terms of visual content, we managed to get a deleted scene between Pycelle and Tywin as well as an in memoriam of many of the deaths we've seen on the show over the last three seasons.

Last but not least - it was leaked this week that Doctor Who and Sherlock actor Mark Gatiss will be appearing in the upcoming fourth season of the show. However it seems that while Mark's role in the fourth year hasn't been leaked, the actor has revealed that he has already filmed his role for the new season. Let the speculating on what the role begin.

Comic- Con 2013 Panel:

Game Of Thrones fourth season is currently being filmed and will air on HBO and SkyAtlantic in March 2014.
