Oxford Union Panel Featuring ‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners, Kit Harington, and John Bradley

Game of Thrones_Season 5_Banner

‘Game of Thrones’ showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss together along with actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and John Bradley (Sam Tarly) were recently guests at Oxford Union. They discuss changes from the books, characters, and more.

…Luckily, we’ve been talking about this with George for a long time, ever since we saw this could happen, and we know where things are heading. And so we’ll eventually, basically, meet up at pretty much the same place where George is going; there might be a few deviations along the route, but we’re heading towards the same destination. I kind of wish that there were some things we didn’t have to spoil, but we’re kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. The show must go on […] and that’s what we’re going to do.

I think the thing that’s kind of fun for George is the idea that he can still have surprises for people even once they’ve watched the show through to the conclusion. There are certain things that are going to happen in the books that are different in the show, and I think people who love the show and want more—want to know more about the characters, want to know more about the different characters who might not have made the cut for the show—will be able to turn to the books.

Here are the first official photos of the Sand Snakes from ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5. The Sand Snakes, Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters, are three deadly young women, all half-sisters from Dorne. 

The eldest, Obara, wields a spear (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Nymeria, wields a bullwhip (Jessica Henwick), and the youngest, Tyene, fights with double daggers (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers).

“We haven’t seen women like this on Game of Thrones before,” Keisha Castle-Hughes tells EW. “You have lone wolves like Arya and Brienne, and others like Daenerys or Cersei, who are politically strong surrounded by men. But you haven’t seen women who are strong together and who collaborate – which is a dangerous thing. We’re three girls who are violent and manipulative who are thirsty for Lannister blood.”

Watch the video below to get to know Sand Snakes.
