George R.R. Martin LiveStream Event

CS 67 26th October 2010Hopefully you were able to watch George R.R. Martin’s livestream event yesterday – but if you weren’t able to make it, don’t worry we have the recording for you.  The whole event lasted about 90 minutes, and if you’r a fan of George and the Song of Ice and Fire series you’ll love it.  Also the last little bit of the event was a Q&A – Oddly enough I thought the questions George passed on were more informational than the actual questions he gave an answer for. g.

Below are just a few pieces of information I found interesting from the event.

  • In the book The World of Ice and Fire, the narrative comes from two maesters.  The first is maester Yandel, who represents the parts of the book written by Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.  The second is archmaester Gyldayn, who is the voice for George R.R. Martin.
  • George R.R. Martin wrote 300,00 words (in addition to the 70,000 words written by Elio and Linda) for The World of Ice and Fire.  Only a part of the 300,00 words made in into the actual book – the rest will be published in Fire and Blood, which has also been joked around as the GRRMarillion.
  • I previously wrote an article on this next piece.  George announced (although it didn’t feel like an official announcement) that A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms would be released later this fall.  For more information on the book check out this post.
  • George also mentioned the inspirations for a few pieces of the Song of Ice and Fire universe.  Such as the Roman Republic being his inspiration for the Valyrian stronghold.  And Tiberius Caesar (more specifically, George Baker’s representation of Tiberius in I, Claudius) being his inspiration for Stannis Baratheon.   Also George’s trip to Hadrian’s Wall gave him the idea for The Wall.

These are just a few pieces of information gained from the livestream event.  So if this sounds interesting check out the full livestreaem event below!

Emilia Clarke’s Birthday?

emilia-clarke-cake-cutting

With filming wrapping up in Osuna, Spain the cast and crew got Emilia Clarke a birthday cake..or more precisely a name day cake.  This would be the actresses 28th, but the catch is the controversy whether or not this was actually her birthday.

Several other sites have claimed that it was in fact Emila’s birthday, while others say that it’s not .  Google has Emilia Clarke’ birthday as May 1 (now I know, you can’t always trust the internet) – but back when Emilia was turning 26, The Huffington Post wrote an article for the actresses birthday, in which they specified her birthday as March 1.
