George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based, denied the opportunity to make an appearance in the last season of the series.
In an interview with EW, Martin revealed that series directors David Benioff and Dan Weiss had invited him to visit Belfast, Northern Ireland, to make an appearance in one of the latest episodes from the Serie. write the winter winds.
"David and Dan have invited me to participate in one of the last episodes, which I have tried to do," Martin said. "But I did not think I could take the time to go back to Belfast, just for cameo reasons."
Martin had already tried to make an appearance in an episode of Game of Thrones, although it was the unfortunate pilot episode that had been cut – a movie starring Tamzin Merchant instead of Emilia Clarke in the role from Daenerys Targaryen.
"There was a cameo in the original driver that was cut," he said. "I was invited to Dany's wedding. But it was at this moment that she was interpreted by Tamzin Merchant, so that all the images were projected during the redesign with Emilia Clarke. "
Martin is working on The Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series he's been working on since the release of A Dance With Dragons in 2011. While fans are more and more impatient with Martin, he is also annoyed at not having finished the book yet. In September 2018, he indicated that he wished to have completed the novel four years ago.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on April 14, 2019.
