The Walking Dead creator thinks GRRM should not have revealed the ending to the showrunners

Published

on


Game of Thrones is now running way past the books, so it is clear that the showrunners know how it’s going to end. So far until season 5, the books provided key points that were directly adapted into the show, but as season 6 came out, it was obvious that it is no longer relying on the books. At such a time, Robert Kirkman, the creator of ‘The Walking Dead’, in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, said that he was of the opinion that George R.R. Martin should not have revealed the ending to the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Weiss and Benioff had once spoken about how George R. R Martin had sat down and told them all the important plot details that would lead to the eventual end of Game of Thrones, which included 3 huge shocking moments from the books. Kirkman believes that Martin, who is yet to conclude The Winds of Winter, should have let the showrunners come up with their own ending for the show. Speaking about how he was disappointed that Martin gave away the crucial plot points to the producers, and how he, Kirkman, would not reveal to the producers the end of his comic(which he says he’s already planned) the Walking Dead, he said, “I would never do that. That’s the one thing I’m disappointed in George R.R. Martin for doing. He should have just been like, ‘F**k you. You make it up now, I’ll get to mine when I’m ready.'”

It is safe to say that Kirkman firmly believes that Weiss and Benioff should have been left to prepare an ending without the guidance of Martin.

What do you think George R.R Martin should have done?

Lena Headey congratulates shame nun Hannah Waddingham on her first Emmy win

Hannah Waddingham was scared she would start “lactating” while filming ‘Walk of Shame’ on hearing her baby cry

Game of Thrones was like a huge family, consisting of varied personalities coming together to make a great show. No matter how adverse their roles were on-screen, they were quite friendly in real life. Take for example, the case of Cersei’s torturer Septa Unella. The two characters couldn’t see eye to eye in the fantasy series. However, in real life, Hannah Waddingham (Unella) and Lena Headey are close friends. Headey recently congratulated her friend on Instagram when she won her first Emmy Award.

Hannah Waddingham was named outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series during the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night for her role as Rebecca Welton on the beloved Apple+ series Ted Lasso. Headey posted a heartwarming congratulatory message to Waddingham on her Instagram, complete with a picture of Waddingham looking stunning in an asymmetrical peach-colored gown:

Though Lena never won an Emmy for her performance in Game of Thrones, no matter how deserving it was, we can understand her excitement when she found out her best friend had recently won her first Emmy. We just wish Lena had won her share as well, because she was exceptional on Game of Thrones as Cersei Lannister.

Let’s join Lena Headey in congratulating Hannah Waddingham on her Emmy win. Leave your well wishes in the comments below!

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

George R. R. Martin is one of the most famous fantasy writers of present times. If not for him, we wouldn’t be having the amazing world of Game of Thrones, HBO’s fantasy epic based on his A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Though much of his fanbase has grown weary of him, for making them wait for the next book in the series ‘Winds of Winter’, he is still a coveted literary figure, and no one can deny his importance in the entertainment industry.

Martin turned 73 on Monday, September 20, 2021, and birthday wishes have been pouring in for the veteran writer. He shared a nice poem about getting old on his blog Not a Blog:

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

I grow old… I grow old…

I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

((with thanks to T.S. Eliot))”

It is true that Martin is getting old, and many fans are worried if he’ll ever get to finish his novels. However, it is also true that he has been promising fans he will deliver the much-awaited books, while he is still working on other projects. We can only hope he is true to his word. What do you think about it? Talk to us in the comments below!

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

When you watch Game of Thrones, you always swear allegiance to a particular House or two, be it Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, or Greyjoy. But when it comes to ice creams, it becomes a really tough choice. And one particular shop in Cornwall is not making it easy for Game of Thrones fans at all. A Game of Thrones ice cream shop, Game of Cones, located in Fowey, Cornwall, UK, is making your dreams come true, in the form of your favourite sweet and icy dessert.

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

The dessert shop in Cornwall sells your favourite ice creams and milkshakes with a Game of Thrones twist. Over 33 flavours are available on their menu for you to choose from, each sharing name with a character on HBO’s epic fantasy. There’s also a House of Dragons cabinet for people to sit and enjoy their delicacy. It sounds awfully similar to the name of HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel!

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

We know that Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is being filmed at various locations in Cornwall, as many pictures have been leaked online with the cast in costume. Game of Cones will surely make a huge profit if the prequel lifts off.

What do you think of the Game of Cones ice cream shop? Tell us in the comments below!
