Emilia Clarke’s gift to Game of Thrones showrunners had a playful George R. R. Martin joke

David Benioff and Dan Weiss are the creative minds behind the worldwide phenomenon, Game of Thrones. The two are currently in the spotlight once again as they promote their upcoming show, 3 Body Problem. The show, based on the acclaimed book series by Liu Cixin, will debut on Netflix in March.

Interviews with the two uncovered details regarding their sequel plans and references to events behind the scenes, including a little joke from Emilia Clarke about George R. R. Martin.

Emilia Clarke’s playful gift to David Benioff and D. B. Weiss


In a recent discussion with James Hibberd from The Hollywood Reporter, David Benioff and Dan Weiss shared details about a decoration in their office. The item in question is an oversized, knitted medieval tapestry.

Actress Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, gifted this tapestry to them with references to the fantasy show. The tapestry features various inscriptions, each containing a touch of Emilia Clarke’s playful sense of humor.

Among these inscriptions, one playfully suggests “more blood, less clothes,” alluding to the show’s notorious portrayals of sex and violence.

Along with these light-hearted jokes is a subtle nod to George R. R. Martin, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, which inspired Game of Thrones.

The tapestry mentions “House Martin,” with the House words stating “Unwritten.” This phrase refers to Martin’s writing process for his yet-to-be-released book, The Winds of Winter, a creative endeavor that has spanned over 13 years.

Since the premiere of Game of Thrones in 2011, fans have eagerly anticipated the continuation of the book series, patiently awaiting the next installment from George R.R. Martin.
