The Amazing Maisie

If you weren't at the Jean Cocteau Cinema on Monday night, you missed out on all the fun.

We had a great day.  People started lining up as the sun was coming up, and the queue grew longer all day.  We sent out coffee and donuts to make sure no one froze or starved to death while waiting in line.  Doors opened at 6:00, with the show starting at 7:00pm, but Maisie Williams and the wolves turned up at 5:00 or so to meet the fans.  Maisie is amazing... not only a talented young actress, but a delight in person.  I think she spoke to everyone in line, signed their books and Funko Pop dolls, posed for pictures.   Not everyone got into the theatre, alas, but everyone in line got to meet Maisie...

 ... and the wolves. Flurry and Zorro, the wolf ambassadors from Wild Spirit, were great hits as well.




Maisie is on her way back to LA now... but I think she liked Santa Fe, and one day we hope to have her back again.

Meanwhile, the GOT marathon continues next Monday night at the Jean Cocteau.  Next time we will be screening episodes nine and ten from season one -- "Baelor" and "Fire and Blood."  And we'll be joined by executive producers and showrunners DAVID BENIOFF and D.B. WEISS, who will be Skyping in after the episodes to answer your questions.

Line up early.  It's sure to be another epic crowd.

GRRM, do you feel that watching the show made you change something on the upcoming books?

I mean, when you write you write for the books only or do you take into consideration "well, that is too big or might not work on the HBO show"?

Re: -
No, the show has had no influence on the books.

Does anyone has a video for Q&A part? :)

Re: Q&A
We were asked not to photograph or video in the theater.

Positively green. But I don't think I could've stood out in the cold until the doors opened at six.

It delights me to no end that she is lovely in person, too.

When I read the books sometimes the characters are similar to the show - other times quite different. She is just how I imagine her character.

...and she came with wolves. :)

Sounds like a great time was had by everyone.
Wish could have been there rather than dealing with
the snow in NJ!

It'd be awesome of you and some GoT cast members could make it to Denver Comic Con!

Awww! Maisie is so cute! :) Wish I could be there instead of in IL. :)

I just finished reading the whole series thank you for this wonderful story, it has made me cry, laugh and bite my nails, it has made me love and hate some of the characters but it has made me change my mind many times, when I think I hate one of them suddenly something happens that makes me feel sad about them, it's been a long time since I waited with so much anticipation for a book (since the dark tower series Stephen king) thank you thank you for this wonderful world that you have created I'll be here waiting and re-reading till you share with us another little piece of your soul

Sounds like it was a fantastic day. I would have given my right arm to be there. Maisie is a wonderful person, I hope to meet her one day.

I love that you've been able to create these wonderful experiences for people, but as a person with limited mobility I always worry a little when I hear about things which are first come first served. I'm curious whether you have any provision for people like me, who might not be physically capable of standing in a line for hours, and can't walk sideways so they need to sit near an aisle?

Well, when we remodeled the theatre, we did rip out some seats to provide some space for wheelchairs, which did not previously exist. We have one patron in a powered wheelchair who comes every week to the GAME OF THRONES screenings, often with her service dog... though, wisely, she left him home on Monday when the wolves were here.

George, do you have any plans at all to come up to the NW anytime soon? I'm from Oregon and would love the chance to meet you/buy you a beer and talk football. I'm jealous of all the people down in the SW, I really wish I could see something at the Cocteau!

Re: Oregon
There's a big ICE & FIRE art show at a gallery in Seattle next month. I'd love to make that, but I don't know if time will allow.

I have nothing to say.
Jealousy chokes me.
