G.R R Martins take on what happened in the TV series.http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/game ... in-1935780
Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin believes that TV bosses turned the Red Wedding brutality “up to eleven” on a scene that was already as “bad as anything”.
Fans of the HBO fantasy epic were left shocked by the vicious slayings of characters such as Robb Stark and Catelyn Stark in episode The Rains of Castamere – and creator Martin admitted earlier this week that penning such a slaughter felt like “murdering two of your children”.
Appearing on Conan O'Brien’s talk show last night, the 64-year-old said that while he knew how the drama ends, departures from the stories in his books were possible during the process of adaptation for TV.
“In broad strokes, I know how it all ends,” he said.
“I discover a certain amount of it as it goes. Of course, there’s no guaranteeing that the show will end the same way. I mean David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the showrunners who script the show, have been known to make changes, including in the Red Wedding.”
Martin continued: “I already had a scene that many people considered extremely brutal and as bad as anything, and they turned it up to eleven by including even more deaths than I had in the books.
“So there are at least four characters who are dead in the TV show who are alive in books still. Hopefully, it will end the same way in the TV show as it does in the books, but we’ll see.”
