- Natalia Tena gave a very frank interview to the Independent this week at Collectormania. When asked the inevitable nudity question, Tena had this to say about Osha’s natural state in her one-on-one scene with Alfie Allen:
I was a bit upset about the fact that they showed my minge without hair because I think my character would have a massive bush. I would have muff, like a muff coming down the thighs.
Tena confirms that she has read the entire ASOIAF series, and shares many fans fears about the fate of the books:
I’m really terrified that he’s not going to write the last one for ages. I’m just terrified. I can’t wait that long. I need it now in my life. But now I think the pressure might be on.

- In an interview with HBO.com, George R. R. Martin discussed his propensity for smacking down his characters, especially right after a triumph and acknowledged the lurking specter of the television show catching up with the book series.
I am aware of the TV series moving along behind me like a giant locomotive, and I know I need to lay the track more quickly, perhaps, because the locomotive is soon going to be bearing down on me. The last thing I want is for the TV series to catch up with me. I’ve got a considerable headstart, but production is moving faster than I can write. I’m hoping that we’ll finish the story at about the same time… we’ll see.

Ours is the Fury: I really really love Natalia Tena. Not just because I was wondering too why Osha was so groomed in that scene with Theon.
