Game of Thrones: Jaime Lannister was George RR Martin’s original plan for the Iron Throne | Books | Entertainment

WARNING SPOILERS FOR GAME OF THRONES AHEAD. The hit HBO series ended just as George RR Martin plans to with A Dream of Spring one day. The Iron Throne was destroyed by Dany’s last dragon and Bran Stark became a democratically elected King. However, the first outline for A Song of Ice and Fire that Martin sent to publishers Harper Collins back in 1990s had a completely different Iron Throne victor.

However, Martin has made clear in interviews that he told Game of Thrones showrunners the major plot points of his plans for The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.

Speaking with 60 Minutes, the 70-year-old author said: “I don’t think [Game of Thrones showrunners] Dan and Dave’s ending is gonna be that different from my ending because of the conversations we did have.

“We’re talking here about several days of story conferences taking place in my home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.”

“But there’s no way to get in all the detail, all the minor characters, all the secondary characters.

“The series has been extremely faithful compared to 97% of all television and movie adaptations of literary properties.”
