Game of Thrones fans have been impatiently waiting at the edge of their seats to find out which of their favourite characters will attend Comic-Con. Well, the wait is over!
Friday, July 10 at 2:30pm a slew of your favourite G.O.T. cast members will be hosted in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con convention!
HBO has hand selected who will attend and moderate the panel. Choosing from dozens of talented actors was a hard task…but choosing an appropriate moderator seemed to come easy. Moderating the whole shebang will be the hilarious NBC late-night host, Seth Meyers!
All right, all right…I know you are all waiting for the list of confirmed Game of Thrones stars attending. Here is goes!
- You will get to ask Alfie Allen (Theon/Reek) what it’s like to play a character that’s undergone such horrific transformation.
- You can ask John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) how he is so damn adorable!
- You can ask Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) what it felt like to finally be able to have Brienne exact justice against Stannis.
- You can tell Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) that we wish he was Princess Shireen’s real father!
- Or ask Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) how different it was being married to Tommen instead of Joffrey.
- You can ask Conleth Hill (Varys) to be your best friend…or Hannah Murray (Gilly) if you can officiate her wedding to Sam…assuming there will be one of course!
- Ask Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) what the plan is now that she’s escaped Ramsey!
- You can ask Carice van Houten (Melissandre) what it’s like to play such a manipulative character or ask Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) what it’s like to stab a violent pedophile over, and over…and over again!
Clearly there are lots of questions. While I’m sure there will be lots of answers, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are not attending the event – presumably to work and maybe, perhaps, to avoid certain Jon Snow related questions.
George R.R. Martin won’t be attending either as he is busy diving deep into the next novel, The Winds of Winter.
But if you have behind the scenes questions you can direct them to attendees Carolyn Strauss (executive producer) and David Nutter (director).
There is speculation that Kit Harington will make a surprise appearance, but it is just speculation at this point…and maybe a bit of wishful thinking.
Either way, there are lots of great characters and lots of important questions to ask so if you are in the area and are a fan of Game of Thrones, be sure to go show your support!
