There’s uproar when Martin kills off characters, but he is unfazed and is determined to force his readers to grow out of situations.
George R.R Martin told ET that he had thought of some exciting twists that will shock and fans. The shocking twist involves three-four characters and Martin said that unlike the GoT where some decisions have been made about these characters, Martin is free to manipulate them still.
With Game of Thrones Season 5 days away, fans all over the world are super excited. This season will see Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) and Hodor absent in action. Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor, had let it slip at the end of Season 4 that his and Bran’s story has come to a temporary halt.
