    1. Dame of Mercia,

      Thanks in large part to Sam Coleman’s performance, the last five minutes of “The Door” ripped my heart out.

      Is there anyone who wasn’t shell shocked or crying when the screen faded to black?

    2. I’m so excited to meet Sibel, she seems like a sweetheart in all her interviews.

      And Sam was great at last year’s con.

      Not me. I just……*wipes a tear from my cheek*……had something in my eye during that scene. Yea, that’s it!

    4. It’s good to see that even people playing minor GoT characters get to do the American con circuit. They’re people like me and you, just doing their job, but can turn their association with GoT into some financial positive. Plane tickets, at least, and accomodation.

      I used to work for a film festival in my country. Mostly I wrote glowing PR for films I hadn’t actually seen, hahaa. I also hosted our international guests, usually the directors and their “stars”. Keep them well fed and watered and distracted, so they won’t get bored. Allow arty time for looking at the “amazing” scenery etc. We all enjoyed the pretend glamour. It was a fun job.

    5. Good for the Conofthrones crowd to have Sibel Kekilli. It may not be so known in the English-speaking world that she is quite a famous and multiple awarded film and TV actress in Germany. She even received a very distinguished German civil award, the Order of Merit (similar to British Knighthood), and at a comparatively young age.
      In Germany, she very rarely gives interviews or appears on talk shows. So feel honoured, guys!
