I’m newly addicted to Game of Thrones. I knew it would absolutely be to my liking, but I also knew I would hate to wait for new seasons, so I decided not to watch it until the series ended. Well, I managed to steer clear of it for 5 years, but a few weeks ago I gave in (and watched the first four seasons within 1 1/2 weeks :D). Now I’m waiting for the fifth season to be released on Blu Ray and in the meantime I started collecting autographs of the GoT cast.
Since I knew that I’d like the show, I had the foresight to let two cast members also sign GoT photos, when I sent them photos for other roles: Harry Lloyd, to whom I wrote because of his role in Robin Hood, and Peter Dinklage. The latter is an especially curious case, because I sent him three photos, one for Narnia, one for X-Men where I love his performance, and one for GoT which I hadn’t watched at that point. I was a bit disappointed for obvious reasons when he only signed one – the GoT photo. Now, however, I’m pretty happy about this autograph, especially since Tyrion happens to be one of my four favourite characters.
And yesterday and today I got my first “official” GoT autographs (since the first two I got while I wasn’t even watching the show ;)) – Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, and Iain Glen, Jorah Mormont. I do hope that they’ll still be around after season 5. No spoilers please 😉
Both signed the 3 photos I sent them, and very quickly too, it took only 20 and 21 days respectively.
I added the full scans (and the ones from Harry Lloyd and Peter Dinklage) to the newly created Game of Thrones page (Other TV shows –> GoT). The password is the same as for the other pages, if you want to get access, please comment on this post of send me an e-mail 🙂
