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"?

No, the show has had no influence on the books.

Re: - I remember the answer to this one
I had the extreme pleasure to meet GRRM at Eastercon in London three years ago. And someone asked this very question. The answer--which made perfect sense--was no, the TV show does not affect the books in any way. One thing people seem to forget is that the book series started over 15 years ago now (maybe more). GRRM has had this plot and these characters in his head for a long time. No three year old TV show is going to shake that around!

What about Osha's role in the books? I read that Natalia Tena did such a great job that you wanted to give her (Osha) a more interesting role to play in the books...
Have you changed your mind about that, or can we expect a more interesting Osha when next we see her?
