For eight weeks, attendees of pub quiz organized in Zagreb’s Retro Café & Night Bar kept their mouth shut. About what, you ask? About speaking to famous writer George R.R. Martin over Skype! The pen behind Game of Thrones has honored his avid Croatian fans with a twenty-minute conversation, during which quiz attendees were able to ask their own questions and comment the author’s work. The only forbidden topic of George R.R. Martin Interview was, of course, the future of the GoT serial, as the forthcoming installment “The Winds of Winter” is soon to be released.
The popular writer shared his thoughts on artistic process and what are the differences between writing fiction and dialogue for television. He also spoke about his last trip to Croatia, during which he visited many unique localities and met some quite tasty delicacies. The trip was of informative nature as well, since Croatia is one of the countries in which HBO is filming the famous TV-series based on author’s work. For those who kept their head below a rock, the fifth season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere on April 13th.
The George R.R. Martin Interview was filmed, edited and published two days ago in Croatian digital edition of Jutarnji List newspaper. Today, we are bringing it to readers of Like Croatia. Prepare yourself for twenty minutes of wit, laugh and writing oriented themes. And who knows, maybe if you sharpen up your perspicacious talents, you might discover a secret or two about the upcoming events in the lore of Westeros and Essos.
