No Place Like Home

We got back home last night, after a pleasant weekend at LepreCon. The convention was very small, only half the size of Bubonicon, but the Phoenix fen were a friendly bunch and we had a great time.

I should never go away, though. The amount of stuff that builds up when I leave, even for a short trip like this one, is truly daunting. Hundreds of emails, huge stacks of snail mail (bills, contracts, junk, with a few real letters salted in)... and, for this trip at least, must be a hundred or more new audition tapes for parts both small (Rast, Mord, Jhogo) and large (Lord Tywin, Ser Barristan, Lysa Arryn) in the HBO series. I was keeping up with the auditions pretty well. Now I'm way, way behind...

Well, nothing to do but get into it. I have another convention trip coming up soon, and lots to do before we go.

Perhaps, you can't say anything on the matter but I was curious what the current situation is with Ms. Tamzin. Is there still a chance that she may be our Dany after all?

I get the impression that, as a producer on the show, George might not be able to officially comment directly on the situation with Tamzin Merchant leaving the project. The last official word we had from HBO (via the Watcher blog at the Chicago Tribune) was that she was gone and would not be participating in the TV series, and the role of Daenerys would be recast and her scenes in Morocco reshot with the new actress (who has not been chosen or announced yet):

That to me sounds pretty definitive that Ms. Merchant will not be involved in the production as Daenerys.
