The creator of the book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” George Martin starred in the first season of “Game of Thrones”
The sensational news was published by the writer himself on his personal blog. George Martin showed his subscribers a cameo, where he is involved in one of the key scenes of the first season. In the rich attire of the master, portly and respectable Martin acts as a distinguished guest at the wedding of the mighty Khal Drogo and the young Daenerys Targaryen.
Why was this scene not noticed by millions of fans of the series and thousands of film critics? Nine and a half years after the premiere of the first season of “Game of Thrones” with analysis of each scene in the smallest detail by dedicated fans of the best HBO series ?!
The answer is simple: the writer played with another Daenerys. More precisely, with another performer of the role of the Stormborn Lady of the Dragons and the rightful Lady of the Iron Throne.
In 2010, actress Tamzin Merchant was tentatively approved as Daenerys Targaryen, and George Martin appeared at her wedding. He was seen only by the members of the film crew. Other masters played with Emilia Clarke, Martin never appeared on the court …
The writer is still worried about the quality of the film adaptation of his work. So, in October, he pointed out to the creators of the series about the dubiousness of their embodiment of the first wedding night between Drogo and Daenerys, noting the best entertainment and drama of the book version.
