The cast of Game of Thrones appearing on Conan live at Comic Con

Sophie Turner

Game of Thrones is making a big splash at San Diego Comic Con this year, with a panel in the huge Hall H, as previously announced. And now it’s been confirmed that they’ll also be appearing live on Conan.

Team Coco has several shows airing live from Comic Con, and the cast of Game of Thrones will be guesting on the show on July 10th, later on the same day as their panel.

Cast members Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice Van Houten and Maisie Williams will appear on Conan. The show airs weeknights on TBS at 11PM Eastern/10PM Central time.

    1. Ooooooo, excellent! Now we can continue that conversation from the other ComicCon discussion. *Yells towards Sophie* “What about that rape?!?!” lol. :p

      Side note: does anyone know if they have the scripts yet?

      Side, side, note: Will they do another “roundtable of death” (or whatever it was called) for season 5? You know, where they invite the cast members who died in the previous season to talk about their experiences? I’d love to see Kerry Ingram and hear her thoughts about that last scene. I’ve recently re-watched that scene and wow…that was some glorious acting on her behalf. The screaming was haunting. Very impactful. I also noticed that the directors did the same “pan away” tactic that they did with the rape scene. They focus on the reaction of a witness to the horror (Theon and Selyse) while simultaneously having the screaming of the victim in the background. It brings up an interesting question to me: Would the scenes have been more (or less) effective if they had focused on the actual victim (Sansa and Shireen), rather than doing the pan away/screaming thing?

      I would say less effective in both terms of directorial style and impact of the scene. By focusing on an emotionally targeted witness of the scene, we as the watchers ourselves see and feel the immediate impact of the scene channeled by the witness, thus reassuring us that our “horrified” reaction towards the scene is justified. It’s a psyhological thing, the character witnessing becomes a mirror for our own feelings.

      As to directional style pain simple: they even HAD to cut away, imagine the uproar and outrage of watchers who saw a child being burned alive and a beloved character being raped by the show’s most hated character in full-front camera-perspective…Not even Thrones could get away with that unscathed.

      But enough of that and on to more lighthearted topics :). All those guys and girls coming to SDCC is awesome, I really loved watching some of the youtube-videos that were published after it last time. Besides, it is refreshing to see a lot of the “deceased” characters again, pretty sure there will be “surprise-guests”.

    3. Knight of Storm’s End,

      Oh, God. I don’t even want to THINK about the reaction if they had shown a child being burned alive. That scene was difficult, but manageable. Actually showing it would have been too much (for both scenes). Its interesting to me, because I had read a lot of reactions of people who were angry that they focused on Theon rather than Sansa. Said D&D were trying to make this about Theon’s pain, not Sansa’s pain (a ridiculous argument, imo). But, it does bring up the question I just asked, about if it would have been more or less impactful had they focused on the victim. Personally, I did not want to see either victim’s face/pain/reaction, so I’m pleased they filmed it that way.

      But you’re right. Onto the actual SDCC. I love all the side panels at these comic cons. The “Women who kick ass” panels were really wonderful last year. It was a great way to get to know some of these actors better.

    4. Apologies, I derail things from time to time but

      has Brienne been mentioned as a possibility for the hooded man in winterfell? This thread has few enough comments to where I can get a response as opposed to afoiaf scholars who would call me an idiot for not knowing “it’s obvious if you recall the line from book two during a fever dream about a vision regarding a foretelling about a dream” thanks!

      WotW uses the same picture of Sansa….all the time.

      That particular official GoT still from episode 10 has been used as a header for a WotW article 0 times.

      So you’ve tired of your Arya-related trolling and moved onto this? How about no trolling at all, or you’ll find this screenname banned like the rest?

    7. Not surprised they don’t have scripts. They wouldn’t generally have anything at least until the read-through and there’s been no indication that has occurred yet. Filming doesn’t start until late in July, so I’m guessing the read-through would be in early or mid July sometime.

      Late July? So the Vale-scenes are the first they are shooting, considering that Rupert Vansittard said that he’ll be shooting in July (and December). Can’t imagine them not having the scripts while they are at SDCC.

    9. Reavers Wrath,

      Good question. My take on it:

      I’m thinking that thus far the hooded man (or woman) is a book only character and has not been introduced into the show at this point. (unless my memory is in worse shape than I’ve realized). And in the book, Brienne is having her own travails in the Riverlands. So I’m thinking not. Of course since she IS in the vicinity of Winterfell in the show, perhaps if they introduce that character, it will be her?

      One thing I think is that it makes it a whole lot less likely for Theon to be the hooded man in a “split personality” type scenario. Unless of course he and Sansa are recaptured by Ramsey which I admit I sometimes worry (for the sake of the characters) will happen because of a couple of different reasons.

    10. I’d be surprised if the actors don’t have the scripts very soon, if they’re filming in July – don’t they have to have SOME preparation? I imagine not everyone can memorize lines in one day 😉

      I think it’s curious that none of the lead actors from GOT will be at Comic-Con, only the second-tier (no Kit, Emilia, Peter), and no showrunners. Maybe to avoid

      questions about Jon Snow?

    11. chameleon,

      Yeah I think so too, although Carice will be there and she has already hinted at a big scene coming (no clue where she got that from).
      I am assuming that Carice does not know anything about this, and ill take whatever she says with a grain of salt.

      I would not be too suprised if she does know something, with or without the scripts. She has been on the show for over 4 years, she is part of the gang and people talk.

    13. Rygritte,

      Last I’d heard, yeah. They just got better about hiding them. Not so many sightings of the actors hanging out in front of hotels. 🙂

      I don’t find Conan particularly interesting,but I’ll definitely watch this one!

      Me too. If I can stay awake long enough. But I have it set to record, just in case. I am an early to bed, early to rise sort of Lady. I wouldn’t miss this since there is no way for me to make it to SoCal for the event – even though I am in the beautiful Pacific NW and by most standards not THAT far away from San Diego.

      I know that they and people consider Maisie “second tier” and she’s paid as such. Is it just because of her age when the series started? I don’t know when or how that changes. Her screen time is up there with the rest of them and now she pretty much has her own individual/independent storyline, even moreso than it was the last few seasons.

    16. Deesensfan,

      It was probably Shireen’s scene.Carice talked about in recent interview about her arc and it should be great.That could mean many things…including Jon.

    17. Ser Oromis Locke,

      There was a story this year about Kit Harrington and John Bradley reading scripts at last year’s Comicon. (Specifically about Kit laughing about the Gilly-Sam scene.) So, I bet they will have them soon.

      Yeah, Emilia’s Cali accent, mannerisms and words were priceless, esp. the end “I like, love Clueless.” 😀

      chameleon: think it’s curious that none of the lead actors from GOT will be at Comic-Con, only the second-tier (no Kit, Emilia, Peter)

      Surely Kit and Emilia are not going because they are filming movies right now. Don’t know about Peter. Anyway, why would people like Peter and Emilia have any knowledge about the future Jon Snow storyline? They are quite separate from the Wall storyline at present.

      Not exactly.One fan accidently spoiled Tywin’s death to Charles.It’s a funny story from “The Fallen Roundtable”.

      Arthur,

      Daenerys,Daeny,Dany. 😉

      Kay,

      Emilia like rest of the cast read the whole script and took Kit for drinks.

    20. Geralt of Rivia: Kay,

      The rest of the primary cast can read scripts too, including those who will be at ComicCon. But why should it be especially true that Emilia or Peter are not going to be at ComicCon for the sole purpose of avoiding giving out spoilers for Jon Snow, as the original post implied? They might simply be busy with other parts of their career in the off-season for GoT shooting. Not everything for everyone revolves around Jon Snow’s story arc. Shocking as that may seem!

    21. Kay,

      Chameleon probably meant showrunners.Weiss and Benioff could try avoid questions about Jon.It would be bizarre to think that Peter and Emilia will try to avoid Comic con…because of Jon’s arch.I think D&D could be simply busy with their work on season 6 and it’s supposed to be pretty hectic.

    22. Clob,

      I agree with your questioning of Maisie’s status as “second tier.” From Winterfell to Kings Landing, from Yoren to the BwB and the Hound, and now to the HoBaW, she has demonstrated her talent and ability to engage the audience. (Recall her scenes with Charles Dance). Her acting prowess has been recognized by awards from the Berlin International Film Festival as well as the recent Saturn Awards. She is not only a fan favorite (for good reason) but has, in my opinion, the most enigmatic story arc.

      She is an integral part of the GoT endgame and should be recognized as such by the powers that be at HBO.

      Yes, it’s pretty much all about her age.

      You’re correct that, if you were assessing the show based solely on the actual material, Maisie/Arya is absolutely in the first tier. But if you look at the show’s promotional materials, pay scale, etc., that’s not acknowledged, and it’s because she’s a kid and as such doesn’t have the same profile or perceived negotiating power.

      Look at, for instance, the Vanity Fair cover from two years ago, for a sense of which actors are considered the first tier: Clarke, Harington, Dinklage, Coster-Waldau, and Headey (indeed, they’re regularly selected as a quintet for those sorts of things, e.g., Entertainment Weekly). Those are also the five who were cited in reports on the payscale as the top salary tier (which Harington denied, but he’s full of it on that, obviously).

      Now, Maisie got her own Entertainment Weekly variant cover this season, so as he’s getting older that’s changing, and will likely continue to change (same with Sophie; maybe Isaac will get the same treatment when he’s back, but I think seasons 3-5 may have dealt irreversible damage to the way his role on the show is perceived in terms of importance).

      You know it’s haunted because the air is really thick, and it feels super humid.

      That’s pretty much the entire Southeast but especially New Orleans.

      I love Clueless, too.

    25. Sean C.,

      This is all true.

      I don’t like the notion of tiering characters/actors. I’d like Sansa, Arya and Bran to be featured in more promotional material for future seasons, we’ve been with them since Season 1, just feels a bit unfair that their ‘second-tier’ due to their age. All 3 are POV characters and represent the goddam Starks!

    26. Sean C.,

      Yet HBO spent tens of thousands of dollars to create The House of Black and White (particularly the Hall of Faces) and the streets of Braavos for an Arya-centric storyline. In addition, D&D chose to keep her HoBaW training in the show, versus “Branning” her for most of the season. All this for a “second-tier” actor? Perhaps representation is indeed the key. Ms. Williams, call your agent.

      Like I said, the “tiers” relate only to promotion and pay, not to their actual roles on the show. Arya has been a top-tier character in the actual story since the beginning (or, at the latest, since season 2), and in particular sustained her own storyline with little to nothing else in the way of other regulars for 4 seasons and counting.

    28. Ok, so completely off topic but it made me smile and we’re in a bit of a post-series slow news slump. Some genius has created Cage of Thrones, photoshopping Nicholas’s face onto various GoT characters. Some of them are really quite good; if anything Ramsay looks even more demented than usual http://imgur.com/a/tum01 🙂

    29. Lulu’s Mum,

      I am surprised at how good some of them really are….of course they could have just not done the ladies with NC face, but Drogo, Ramsay, Bronn, The Hound, Little Finger, Stannis, Rob Stark, Jon Snow, Eddard Stark and even Jamie (a bit) look very good. Some of these Cage could actually have played it well…but I don’t think he has the voice to be cool like Stannis or Bronn, maybe Bronn.

      Thanks for the start of the off season fun!!
