“I don’t think the (Game of Thrones) TV series was very good for me,” says George R. R. Martin

Game of Thrones was based on the books by George R. R. Martin, and while the show has already ended, the books are yet to finish up. We have been waiting for the next book, which has been undeniably denied due to GRRM’s other ventures, especially his involvement with Game of Thrones. In a recent interview with The Observer, George discussed how the show didn’t do him much good. Read on!

Speaking of whether the controversy over the show’s ending affects the books, he said:

“No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t change anything at all … You can’t please everybody, so you’ve got to please yourself.”

He then delved into how the show harmed his creative process simply by his own involvement in it:

“I don’t think [the TV series] was very good for me. The very thing that should have speeded me up actually slowed me down. Every da]y I sat down to write and even if I had a good day … I’d feel terrible because I’d be thinking: ‘My God, I have to finish the book. I’ve only written four pages when I should have written 40’.”

He also talked about fan theories and fan interactions:

“I took myself out of all that. Some of [the theories] are right and some of [the theories] are wrong. They’ll find out when I finish.

I don’t want to go to a party where an unending succession of people want to take selfies with me. Because that’s not fun the way it was in the old days. That’s work.”

George also admitted to missing the old days, but said it’s a win some, lose some situation.

Game of Thrones boasted a host of highly talented actors on its roster. Veteran actor Sean Bean was one of the big names who starred in the fantasy epic. His character, Ned Stark, was a fan-favourite character in the first season. However, he met the same fate Sean Bean’s roles are notoriously famous for; he couldn’t last for more than one season. Sean is currently starring in the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. This time, he was actually worried he would be killed off on-screen again. In an interview with The New York Times, the actor revealed he was relieved his character was still alive.

He said, “It was a bit worrying, actually! I forgive you for thinking it might be the end. I think everyone expects me to die at some point in this series. That’s what I do.”

“I worked on a film recently called “Possessor,” and I was supposed to die in that. I asked them: “Why don’t you just badly injure me instead? You can put me in a wheelchair.” They said OK. So by the end of the film, I’ve got brain damage, but at least I’m alive. I’m not really that bothered by dying if there is a justifiable reason for it, but I don’t want to keep dying all the time. And it kind of gives the game away if you see me and you think, “How long is this guy going to last?” So when I do survive, it’s a bit of a surprise!”

What would have happened if Ned was alive for a few more seasons on Game of Thrones? Tell us what you think in the comments below!

When an actor plays a role, they base their performance on a real-life character. Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean is portraying a villainous character, Wilford, on the show Snowpiercer. There were a lot of real-life personas he took inspiration from. But he revealed his easiest target- Former US President Donald Trump. In an interview with The New York Times, he talked about how he blended into his villainous character.

Sean said, “He’s [Trump] an easy target. [Laughs.] If I’m honest, I used to enjoy watching Donald Trump. I found him highly entertaining and rather funny. I didn’t trust him. I didn’t like much of his policies, or what he believed in. But he talked like a regular guy and that kind of brought you in. He also could just dismiss someone very quickly and start laughing about it. I couldn’t help but notice that and apply a little of that attitude in Wilford.”

He continued, “Trump liked to use the rhetoric and the platitudes that a lot of American presidents use, including Joe Biden: “We’re all in this fight together” or “Loyalty is rewarded.” It sounds a little more sinister coming from Wilford, but it’s the same kind of message — it sounds grand, but it doesn’t actually mean anything. Wilford’s a good orator. He likes the sound of his own voice, and he likes dressing up to address an audience. That’s why he’s successful — he’s attractive, charming and witty. But that just masks the savagery, barbarism and cruelty.”

Recently Charles Dance talked about channelling Trump for his character in Mank. What do you think of Sean’s portrayal of Wilford? Talk to us in the comments below!

When Game of Thrones first aired, Sean Bean’s Ned Stark was one of the most beloved characters on the show. Alas, his character didn’t survive the first season (something Sean is notoriously famous for). Ned Stark’s death did build the foundation for the Stark children to fulfil their destiny. Two years after the completion of the fantasy series, a new play about Robert Baratheon’s rebellion is under works at Broadway. The drama will bring back several of the fan-favourite characters including Ned Stark and Jaime Lannister. Let’s see what Sean Bean, who played the noble Lord of Winterfell, has to say about that.

Bean recently talked to The New York Times in an interview about his series The Snowpiercer. On being asked about the play, he said, “Is that King Robert Baratheon? I keep hearing about so many different remakes. I mean, there’s a “Lord of the Rings” series coming, too. I might be too old to play Ned Stark again. That’s the trouble, isn’t it? It depends on how far you go back, doesn’t it? I’d love to reprise the role. Maybe they could do that thing they did with Robert De Niro in “The Irishman,” do a few alterations! [Laughs.] I don’t see why not.”
