    If I were there I think I’d get in the ‘questions line’ and instead make a request; that Emilia stand center stage and reinact her scene of commanding the Unsullied in Valyrian. That would rock!

    Brilliant idea to have Jason there. He remains a fan favorite, despite very little screen time as the iconic Drogo, and now that he has a new series of his own on Sundance, he can hope to move his GOT fans to it. I’ve always thought his loss to the show was equal to the loss of Bean.

Everyone already knows Martin is writing as fast as he can, some actors read the books and some don’t, it’s great to film in Dubrovnik etc. etc…. they just rehashed stuff any Game of Thrones fans have read in dozens of other interviews. Why fly in John Bradley or Rose Leslie to answer one question?

    Every time someone calls Daenerys “Khaleesi” as if it were her name (I’m looking at you Simone), I die a little more inside. Is it that hard for people to say Daenerys, or hell I would be fine if they called her Dany since its easier to spell…

    How would they like it if I went around calling Cersei “Queen” all the time. “Queen is such an underrated character. I love watching scenes with Queen and Imp because it brings out their dysfunctional family.”

    I’m too old to swoon over anyone (knee problems, alas). I’m going on the reaction of the GOT-viewing members of a TB/SVM group, which is l00 percent female, aged from 25-55, and hail from four countries.

    You’re right it is totally Jorah’s fault… Or whoever wrote those lines for Jorah. He’s definitely the master at saying Khaleesi and making it sound great… but they should maybe have thrown in her real name occasionally.

    Each to her own. But someone at Sundance Channel must have done his own demo research and come to the same conclusion. I believe J.M. is the only member of the GOT cast, current or past, who’s landed the lead in a U.S. TV series. He appeals equally to men and women (he’s an action star in the new Stallone movie)—and very few actors today have that demo. He’s going to have a respectable, if not A-list, career. Name anyone else in the current cast under age forty who can say the same. I exclude PD, as I think he would rightly consider himself a character actor, although I could see the right vehicle working for him in the post-GOT era.

    Thanks for the live feed! Great to see the actors together and love Peter’s thoughts on Tywin and his children. Am really surprised how little exclusive material there was for Comic-Con, though–suppose this is why they announced Mark Gatiss’ casting when they did.

    DH87,

    I’m not knocking Momoa, just don’t think he was a bigger loss than Bean, or Harry Lloyd for that matter. Jason has the looks and charisma to stick around Hollywood for a while. I’m not ready to say he has a more successful future than Clarke,Madden,Harrington, or Maisie Williams at this point. It’s not like any of his movies have been hits(‘Conan’ grossed 21 million at the box office and ‘Bullet To The Head’ grossed 9.5 million) or that Sundance is a major channel.

    “Conan” and “Bullet to the head” were both huge flops at the box office. And by the look of his next projects, his future doesn’t seem so bright. (A-list.. what a joke)

    DH87: Name anyone else in the current cast under age forty who can say the same.

    I’m not a fan of Kit Harington, but my money would be on him if we’re talking about potential A-list.

    And Natalie Dormer might have a shot too, depending on how it turns out for her after “The Counselor”.

    DH87,

    Sean Bean was the lead role in the Sharpe series of made-for-television films that were very popular in the UK in the ’90s. Lena Headey was the lead actress in The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was the lead in a TV show named New Amsterdam. Charles Dance was top billed for two miniseries, and Julian Glover played the lead titular role in a 1980s BBC adaptation of Dombey&Son.

    I was excluding the GOT actresses, but you are quite right to assume “actor” meant either sex in my post. Dormer is in terrific company in The Counselor and both she and Emilia have potentially strong careers, Emilia even more so since the shelf life of actresses is so much shorter than actors’ in Hollywood.

    I don’t share your confidence in a leading man career for Kit. He’s a bit height challenged for the current crop of Hollywood actresses (he’s a Hollywood 5′l0″, not an actual 5’10″), and although that never held back Tom Cruise, Paul Newman (who in person was 5’7″), Spencer Tracy, and Jimmy Cagney from stellar careers, they weren’t dealing with actresses almost 6 feet tall in 4 inch heels. He hasn’t had a strong romantic role in GOT and I don’t see him as an action star, which these days is pretty much the only $$$$ game in town, or a comedic actor. I could be wrong.

    Again, he may well have a wonderful career, but I was talking about leading man, not character actor.

  60. outdoorcats
    Posted July 19, 2013 at 8:47 pm | Permalink

    In addition, it appears Diana Rigg was top-billed in three different miniseries or TV series, Roy Dotrice played the lead role in a miniseries called ‘Dickens of London,’ Clive Russell was the lead in a miniseries called ‘Rockface,’ and even Michael McElhatton headlined two little Irish miniseries called ‘Fergus’s Wedding’ and ‘Paths to Freedom.’

    And of course let’s not forget Paul Kaye who headlined his own comedy shows such as Very Important Pennis and Strutter. ;)

    Just FYI for the curious; not trying to be a dick.

    edit – and DH87 said U.S. TV series, so I guess the only two examples to the contrary are Lena and Nikolaj. I’ve never watched New Amsterdam but The Sarah Connor Chronicles was awesome, strongly recommended to all (and I’m no huge fan of the Terminator films).

    Richard Madden landed the Prince Charming role in the upcoming live-action Cinderella movie, to be directed by Kenneth Branagh. He also appears to be balancing that out with some good indie projects. I think he can look forward to a respectable career.

Charles Dance was top billed for two miniseries, and Julian Glover played the lead titular role in a 1980s BBC adaptation of Dombey&Son.

    I did say “under forty,” which excludes Mr. Dance, Mr. Glover, and Mr. Bean, and used “actor” as the male only noun, as I explained above. Dame Diana of course was the female lead for The Avengers, also in the l980s. I did forget that NCW was the titular lead of the New Amsterdam show, since it lasted only 8 episodes, but it does qualify. I think that’s the only actual exception to my statement.

    Of all the current GOT actors/actresses under forty, Maisie has the greatest chance of being a major star. She will spend her awkward teenage years “aged down” as Arya and, after a stint at the RSC or with other classical training, would be poised to take on Keira Knightly/Natalie Portman/Cary Mulligan/Emily Blunt roles at 19-21.

    Oh, I thought Cinderella was not live-action but a voice-only role for Richard.

I could be wrong.

    Kit has three big Hollywood films coming out in the next year, each of which star some pretty high-profile actors and actresses, and two of which are action films:

    Seventh Son, with Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes and Alicia Vikander: big-budget action film.

    How To Train Your Dragon II: sequel to a wildly-successful animated film and featuring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill and America Ferrera.

    Pompeii: big-budget action film in which he plays the lead. It also stars Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Emily Browning and Jared Harris.

    He’s also been cast as the lead in Greenland Time, an independent film that’s still looking for financing I think.

    And as his role expands in upcoming seasons, his career will probably only gather more momentum. I don’t think you should count him out just yet.

    So I talked with someone who was there for all 3 GOT Comic Con panels and they told me this was by far the worst one of these panels. She actually said she was bored about a half hour into it and people were on their phones more than actually paying attention, and that a few of the panel members looked totally out of it and only going through the motions.

    But it is what is. I’m not sure one should expect super excitement out of people sitting around talking.

    DH87,

    Dinklage and Bradley were the only interesting interviews on the panel. Unfortunately they weren’t asked many questions. I know NCW may still be working on ‘The Other Woman’ but it would have been nice to see him and Gwendoline on this panel to liven it up. Of course, the fault may lay with the moderator. Rob McElhenney did a very good job hosting the Emmy panel earlier this year. Maybe the key is having a comedian host these types of events.

    Tyrion Pimpslap,

    Some actors have a strong star presence, some don’t. The GOT cast and execs are by and large young and new to the spotlight. I don’t blame them for being awkward. They may be charming one-on-one but not terribly witty in front of a live audience. Kristin Stewart used to just sit at those Twilight panels like a stump, relying on Pattinson, who developed a few self-deprecating anecdotes, to woo the fans enough for the both of them. Eventually they developed a little back and forth thing, but it took time.

    Remember when Jason M. showed up to the GOT panel sporting shades and the Khal eye make up, spoke Dothraki to Emilia, kissed her? Everybody loved it (pulling it again this year apparently worked, too). The first year True Blood had a panel, a fan asked if a famous scene from the books in which the Skarsgard character wears a pink lycra outfit would be in the TV show, and Skarsgard spontaneously lifted his trouser leg to reveal a hot pink sock—the crowd hollered and pounded their seats. It’s all hokey, but that’s ComiCon. The actors have to get into the spirit of the thing. I suspect no one on the panel has that Barnum and Bailey in them.

    Just watched the video and I have to say, the crowd were very annoying, cheering and clapping and “WOOOOOO!!”ing at every gap at mention of someone, I’m like “STFU and let them speak!” jeeeeez.

    Rant Over.

    That was pretty lame. Really bad moderator and idiotic questions from the audience. Only Michelle, Peter and Richard had something interesting to say. Next year different actors for the panel? Meanwhile, Zachary Levi tweeted this:

    Zachary Levi ‏@ZacharyLevi 3 h
    “@thenerdmachine: Richard Madden will be doing a #NerdHQ panel tomorrow at 6:30p! Stay tuned for details.” Winter just came, y’all!

    I believe there’s a livestream too and the whole thing will be on YouTube afterwards. The NerdHQ panels are so much better than Comic-Con panels.

    The audience members who asked the questions were also extremely irritating, I stopped watching. The Emmy panel was a hell of a lot better IMO.

    WHAT?! Woohoo! How the hell did I miss this?! Zac is also a huge GOT fan so this should be interesting (if he moderates it, I know he’s saving his voice for Broadway).

    This is why Rob McElhenney should host all GOT panels!!!!!

    The weak panel would have been forgiven had there been any casting news/scoops. I want names HBO! Make us happy!

    I think GoT panels are really hard to do, because half of the fun of watching anything is speculation on future. TV shows panels are always about fans trying get some hints, actors giving vague or smart ass answers and the producers playing dumb. Without all of this, all you have left are the boring questions like ‘how was it like to work with…’ and awkward ‘was it hard to film your own demise…’ I would honestly had no idea what to ask of Rose Leslie (who I absolutely adore)knowing Ygritte´s name will be soon put on the dead list. Was the Island cold? Does she like to work with Kit? The answers are kind of obvious.

    I could barely hear some of the responses over the “woo woos” of the crowd.

    The Emmy panel was a lot better but I’m not exactly sure why. Rob McElhenney was a great host but surely it wasn’t just that. Maybe the actors are uncomfortable in such a spontaneous setting.

    The GOT Comic Con panels are dull. Maybe Jason Momoa should be the host – he seems to show up every year anyway.

    May I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that
    actually knows what they are discussing on the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    A lot more people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you aren’t more popular since you
    most certainly possess the gift.

    I got the impression that everyone on the panel is now sort of used to the hype and are focusing more on the upcoming season to be filmed. I liked GRRM’s answer about the prequels, and that we will rather be fed more morsels, hints or revelations about Robert’s Rebellion in the last two forthcoming books rather than an entire book about it. Good to know, and more logical/ better story telling as well. And more interesting when we as readers get to put all the pieces together ourselves.

    Darquemode,

    Pig Bodine,

    Thanks! Looking forward to watching!

    I swear, Comic Con is like Xmas. Thrones, Hannibal, Vikings and masses of other goodies, all at once!

    That’s a great idea!! It’s also a more intimate setting, which perhaps translates into more fans feeling comfortable asking questions.

    Here’s the Hannibal one–if it was any indication, it’s also a great opportunity for prize giveaways! (I want a signed script from Thrones!!!)

    Also, loved the Orphan Black panel–if he ever gets tired of acting, Jordan Gavaris has a future as a motivational speaker. Really great stuff, so thanks for the link!

    SDGM,

    Looks like The Walking Dead panel was better than the GoT panel this year. So just because gameof thrones panel got more applause doesn’t mean it was better. The GoT panel was so disappointing and boring this year.

    GeekFurious,

    i think GoT is way too big to do NerdHQ. Besides, if the same people who ask the same idiotic questions @ the official GoT comic con panel attend a NerdHQ for GoT then there’s no point. It’s just extending the stupid i’m very sorry to say.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your site. It seems like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Many thanks
