After today’s other interviews turned up, we expected some more were going to be coming out of TCA ... and it looks like we were right. Continuing the streak of excellent interviews was Winter is Coming with their report from the roundtable interview with George R.R. Martin, which several other reporters sat in on. It sounds similar to the interviews conducted in Belfast with some of the cast and crew.
George, as always, makes some excellent points, stressing the reality of television budgeting as well as the fact that while he has an extremely strong visual image of Westeros, the interpretation of the production very much works for him and he expects most fans will be the same. He also discusses a scene very briefly glimpsed in the extended Inside Game of Thrones video, confirming details that were told to me in October but which I was asked not to discuss at the time (I’ve updated our screencap with most of these details).
And then Access Hollywood jumped back into things with not one, but _two_ new video interviews featuring Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), which you can see below. Clarke’s interview is even more spoile-filled than Bean’s, if you can believe it!
