A little therapy for Game of Thrones fans sliding into withdrawal after the massive season finale last month: EW grabbed showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff and cast members Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Heady, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Kit Harrington, for a video chat at the VIP Comic-Con lounge on Thursday. Click the jump to watch EW’s Tim Stack talk to Weiss and Benioff about their geeky interests and EW’s Darren Franich talk to the cast about season 2 and lavish wigs.

    That’s Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) on the panel not Richard Madden (Rob Stark).

  • Carr

    That’s Kit Harington, not Richard Madden … not that I’m complaining.


    While we’re at it, Lena Headey’s name is spelled the way I just spelled it.

    • charlotte

      I think he was kind of smiling and laughing about it. The latest EW interview with GRRM has eased my concerns. A bit.

      • Sara

        It made me feel better too. He has plot armor–he’ll be fine.

    • Evan

      Seeing as Jon get’s stabbed by Bowen Marsh and other members of the nights watch at the end of the fifth book, lying in a pool dead next to Wun Wun the giant, maybe he should take his time to read it.

        Thanks for the spoiler. You could have posted a warning.

      • Krystille

        WTF think you could not post stuff like that. I am literally 150 pages away from finishing book 5. You jackass.

      • Stephanie Needham

        You are a prick for spoiling that for people. I hope karma bites you in your Grinch-like a**.

      • Alison

        You f*cking moron. Don’t post spoilers, the book’s only just come out.

      • Tom

        I agree… total d-bag thing to do

  • el

    I totally did not recognize the girl who plays Dany for a few moments. It must be a bit strange when all your castmates casually hanging out on the couch there have also seen you naked, haha.

    • Mike

      I was thinking the same thing. For the first minute of that segment I was genuinely wondering who the brunette was and if she was a new addition for Season 2.

      Emilia Clarke is attractive in the show, without a doubt, but she looks amazing as a natural brunette.

      • Mike

        Heh, funny thing, I recognized Lena Headey by her tattoo. Also, NCW is in for a lot of “fun” in the coming seasons, those who read the books already know what I mean.

  • stella

    more please?

    • thin

      Well… that was a lot less interesting than it could have been. I’m going to give you guys the benefit of the doubt and assume that you didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for these interviews. Or to edit them.

      • Traci

        I found this really dull. I don’t think it was the interviewers fault though. He was really trying and the cast seemed not sure of who should speak. they kept looking at each other.

      • Peter Vee

        Not to be too hard on the interviewer, but it is his fault if people are confused as to who should talk. He should be directing (open-ended) questions to individuals, that’s interviewing 101.

      • D

        Agreed, that was a major fail! One of the most anticipated casts at ComicCon and we get two minutes where you can’t hear anyone speak?! And when they do speak it is about non existent wigs? Ouch.

  • huzzah

    Wow, they are all so talkative.

    • Mike

      Yeah, that was the most awkward interview! lol

  • rmholt

    not enough pixels.

  • SqueekyClean

    Someone give each actor a friggin mic! You couldn’t even hear their responses. This vid was poorly executed on all levels. Peter Dinklage looked so uncomfortable. The interviewer was painfully inexperienced and did not corral or do this group interview well at all. Epic fail, EW.

    • District 12

      I completely agree, what a waste of interview time, I mean you get to talk to a great selection of actors from the show and you ask about the wigs they wear? EW for shame!

    • jj

      This was painful to watch. Dan Siernson (sp?,) Jeff Jensen (sp?) What happened to EW’s fun people who conduct great interviews?

  • Cain

    That production of this was so bad.

  • The unknown stuntman

    Anybody who uses the term ‘epic fail’ should be put to death in a similiar manner to Ed Stark…

    • Sharlie Cheen

      I prefer the method that Viserys experienced for their demise.

      • Evil Henchman #2

        you’re both wrong, i want to die the same way as Tyrion, you know what im talking about.

  • Sharlie Cheen

    Did anyone actually say anything? the only that could be heard is the least important one, the “interviewer”.

    • Stevex

      EW, can I get 2 minutes 49 seconds of my life back, please?

  • Get A Q

    That was probably the worst interview ever.

    Questions about wigs… Really

  • Jostl

    This interview is the worst one in the history of Internet. I don’t know how the interviewer managed to ask these questions without blushing. Excruciating to watch. The best show ever got the worst interview of all times. LAME!

  • james

    seriously awkward interview. Asking whether or not a the actor is afraid his/her character will die on a show that’s completely faithful to the books?

  • james

    Also, call them “creators” isn’t correct also.

  • BHM1304

    What a piece of s$it those interviews were. Does the interviewer even watch the show? The cast played him for the fool he was. Why give this nothing with stupid questions anything?
