Plot Twist: George RR Martin Says He Doesn't Watch 'Game Of Thrones'

Author of epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire George R.R. Martin is not one of the 10-million USA viewers who tune in to watch HBO adaptation Game of Thrones each week, he told Metro in an interview. When he was traveling, including to Russian Federation where he gave the interview, he didn't watch any TV and is not caught up on the current seventh season of Game of Thrones.

Martin is also heavily involved in HBO's Game of Thrones prequel projects in development (of which four have been confirmed by the network).

Generally, Martin has praised the show, often hosting screenings and talking positively about numerous actors. But what if Martin is also planning to bring back some long-gone surviving book characters, such as Pyat Pree or Robb Stark's widow, who is alive and well (and potentially even pregnant, according to some fans) in the books? This news spread thanks to a quote from Martin that was taken out of context. The 68-year-old insists he just doesn't have the time because of writing and "touring".

That is until Martin - who had several Hugo Awards as a sci-fi writer to his name - supposedly met with the show's (unnamed) producer and everything went downhill from there.

This is one reason why fans are getting impatient with the release of "The Winds of Winter".

With Game of Thrones' Season 7 finale coming up in just a week's time, one has to wonder about the spinoff series HBO will be releasing after the main show's eighth and final season comes to an end.

"In a recent interview, Martin said that "#The Winds Of Winter" and the TV adaptation "go their separate ways". "About 20 of them have died already, which are quite alive to me and will appear in a new book", Martin said. In addition, I have not become younger. "On the screen, characters are killed right and left", he told Metro US. "Age does not add enthusiasm". "But at that time it was only about the big screen". I was fooled by the photon torpedoes and starships.
