SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- “Game of Thrones” is heading to San Diego Comic-Con later this month, and author George R.R. Martin has confirmed a few details about the panel.
The author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series announced in a post on his “Not A Blog” website that the panel will take place on July 19 from 2:50-3:45 in Hall H.
George confirmed he will be on the panel as will executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss. Dan and David were not on the panel last year due to filming conflicts.
GRRM also confirmed there will be a “Game of Thrones” autograph session at the Warner Bros. booth.
“I am not on any panels besides the one for ‘GAME OF THRONES,’ nor will I be doing any readings (come to worldcon for that), but there should be plenty of chances for anyone who wants me to deface their books, maps, games, videotapes, or body parts with my illegible scrawl,” he wrote on his website.
“But PLEASE, if you want my autograph, come to one of these four signings. Don’t stop me in the hotel lobby or on the street or in a restaurant when I am trying to have dinner,” he added.
UPDATED: The cast members set to appear on the “Game of Thrones” Comic-Con panel are John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), and Richard Madden (Robb Stark).
The panel will be moderated by Elvis Mitchell.
