George R.R. Martin: Sure. And, you understand, the most important beats. I imply, clearly, we are speaking right here about a– a number of days of tale meetings going down in my house in Santa Fe, New Mexico. However there is not any strategy to get in all of the element, all of the minor characters, all of the secondary characters.
George R.R. Martin: The sequence has– has– been extraordinarily trustworthy, in comparison to 97 % of all tv and film diversifications of literary homes. However it isn’t utterly trustworthy. And– and it cannot be. Another way, it must run some other 5 seasons.

However they could also be on positive secondary characters, there could also be large variations. And, yeah, one of the vital other people can have that. There might be a debate, I am positive. I feel a large number of other people, who– say, “Oh, Dan and Dave’s finishing is best than the only George gave us. It is a just right factor they modified it.” And there might be a large number of individuals who say, “No. Dan and Dave were given it improper. George’s finishing is best.” And they’ll all struggle on the web. And there might be debate. And– that is wonderful. I imply, it– you understand, the worst factor for any murals, be it a film or a e-book is to be disregarded. (LAUGH)
