Who's going—and, perhaps more intriguingly, NOT going—to San Diego
HBO has decided which of Game of Thrones‘ 20-something cast members are going to Comic-Con—and selected a big name moderator too.
NBC late-night host Seth Meyers will moderate the Hall H presentation. Confirmed attendees include Thrones stars Alfie Allen (Theon/Reek), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Conleth Hill (Varys), Hannah Murray (Gilly), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Carice van Houten (Melissandre) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark).
From the behind the camera, there’s executive producer Carolyn Strauss and director David Nutter, who helmed the final two episodes of season 5.
Interestingly, the show’s primary creative talents are not attending: Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will skip Comic-Con. The same goes for Thrones author George R.R. Martin, who has previously said he would forgo Comic-Con to focus on writing his next novel, The Winds of Winter.
We have to wonder: Will Kit Harington make a surprise appearance? After all, it wouldn’t be the first time — spoiler alert — a killed-off actor came to the show’s Comic-Con panel (Jason Momoa appeared after the show’s first season). And there’s certainly plenty of speculation about whether Harington’s Jon Snow is really dead.
The panel will be on Friday, July 10 at 2:30 p.m. HBO also announced a panel for its new Robert Kirkman series on Cinemax, Outcast, which will be on Saturday, July 11 at 3 p.m.
