George R.R. Martin on how Covid affected his involvement in House of The Dragon




The San Diego Comic-Con is finally a get-go after a long wait of nearly 3 years. One of the most exciting features of this year’s con is the special House of The Dragon panel, and the Dragon’s Den set up by HBO on-site. House of The Dragon is right over the horizon, but it took a long time and tonnes of effort to get it there. Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, who surprised fans at the comic con, talked about how it was for him to let Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik adopt “his kids”; the characters of Fire & Blood, and how the filming, as well as his involvement in the show, was affected by covid.

Martin said, “I was nervous at the beginning because, you know, these books, these characters are like my kids and when you give your kid to people for adoption you wonder how they will be treated. Will you recognize them when they come back to you and all that but I‘ve been very, very fortunate, here, and I think Ryan has done a great job of adapting the books – so far.”

“And our cast here is amazing. I haven’t had a chance to meet them. Unfortunately, with Covid I didn’t get to visit the set and hang around as I did on a certain other show in the past. I’ve seen nine of the ten episodes and it’s pretty amazing. Pretty amazing. I’m really very happy.”
