The Game of Thrones Q&A Panel at San Diego Comic-Con will be beginning shortly in Hall H, hosted by Craig Ferguson and featuring several cast members. The panel lasts for one hour, and many are hoping that the panel will feature some big announcements or special unreleased footage as a treat for the fans.
The official SDCC programming notes:
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, HBO’s Game of Thrones concluded its 10-episode fourth season in June and will begin filming its fifth season this summer. The series, executive produced and written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, is an epic story of treachery and nobility, set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years. Featured cast include (in alphabetical order) Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Margaery Baratheon, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Rose Leslie as Ygritte, Rory McCann as Sandor Clegane (“The Hound”), Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, and Maisie Williams as Arya Stark.
John Bradley will also be joining the panel, though he was not included in this original announcement.
Update: This blooper reel just aired at Comic Con!
WotW says: What are you all hoping we’ll hear about the most in this Q&A? I love the lineup of cast members on the panel this year, and Ferguson is a stronger choice for a moderator than last year’s choice.
