EXCLUSIVE: George RR Martin To Cameo Via Skype For Game Of Thrones Star’s Web Series

Theory of Everything Wolf HallSupreme Tweeter, Game of Thrones

 
The web series sees Lloyd playing himself, riffing on reality when his attempts to raise his own profile via social media attracts one very distinguished fan: a certain Kim Jong-Un, who we’re informed is a big deal in North Korea.
 
Brilliantly, Lloyd has brought in some old Westeros muckers; Maisie ‘Arya’ Williams crops up, as does the main man himself – George R R Martin.

Lloyd adds that the whole series lasts about 15 minutes. But what of the agonizing wait for the next book in the series?
 
"You expect him to be self-important – he has these books to write. We would go out for lunch and after he would say ‘Let’s go and do this, then I’m off to Texas next week.’ I would just say, ‘George, there’s no time. You have work to do.’ He’s very centred, and very interested in the fan world, he’s always communicating – he’s not trying to race through it. He’s enjoying it as he goes."
