George R.R. Martin Speaks Up on Game of Thrones Series Ending and the Books
60 minutes recently got to sit down with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin regarding his vision for the book and how different it was from the HBO TV series.
In his interview, Martin has stated that however the show ends, its very much aligned with how his book would end. With a few major differences with some minor characters.
Which characters are changed and which ones survive are still not revealed though.
I don’t think Dan and Dave’s ending is gonna be that different from my ending because of the conversations we did have. But on certain secondary characters there may be big differences.
We’re talking here about several days of story conferences taking place in my home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But there’s no way to get in all the detail, all the minor characters, all the secondary characters. The series has been extremely faithful compared to 97% of all television and movie adaptations of literary properties. But it’s not completely faithful. And it can’t be. Otherwise, it would have to run another five seasons.
