- Heading to NYCC? The fabulous Ladies of Ice and Fire have arranged a meet-up for Game of Thrones/Ice & Fire fans in NYC to kick off the event. Hit up their Facebook page for the time and place and to book your spot.
- Speaking of cons, RingCon was held in Germany this past weekend and they had quite a few Game of Thrones cast members there to talk about the show. You can find some photos here (Jason Momoa rules!). If anyone knows of any videos or reports from the GoT panel, link it in the comments below and we will add it to the post.
- Adria’s News recently published a very in-depth interview with George R. R. Martin. They talk about the books mostly, but a little about the TV show near the end, as well. One new detail we learn is that the production was very close to using Spain as a filming location, but ultimately chose Croatia instead. There are spoilers from later books in the interview, but they are hidden, so it is safe to read for fans of the TV show.
- Fast Co. Create has an interesting look into the making of the season two finale’s final scene. Lots of VFX work was required to get the shot just the way David & Dan wanted it.
- The new fall TV season has started up in the US and Game of Thrones references are all the rage once again. New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, The Office and Glee have all used some Thrones-related jokes.
- Lastly, Bryan Cogman spoke at the recent Talking TV Drama event at the Galway Film Centre in Ireland, where he confirmed he is writing episode five of season three. You can read a report of his full interview here.
