GRRM Interview and Tamzin Merchant

Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune has posted her interview with George R.R. Martin concerning HBO’s Game of Thrones. A lot of interesting things ... and a bit of expected news: Tamzin Merchant has left the production, so the role is definitely being recast. This item is from HBO directly, rather than from GRRM it seems.

The transcript covers a number of topics, not just the HBO production, such as the comic book adaption of Fevre Dream by Avatar Press which came to fruition after they contacted George regarding rights to adapting A Song of Ice and Fire, something he may eventually do (and has been approached by a number of different publishers about) but hasn’t yet decided because he’s not sure it’s really feasible. He also mentions a novel idea he’s had for a long time, inspired by Chicago’s landmark Uptown Theatre, and of course he covers the current situation with A Dance with Dragons. It makes for good reading, especially as it touches upon GRRM’s early career both as a writer and in Hollywood.

Many thanks to Mo Ryan for the head’s up!
