A large number of the cast from Game of Thrones where welcomed to Comic Con 2013, Peter Dinklage, George R.R. Martin, Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington, Rachael Madden, Esme Bianco, Rose Leslie, and John Bradley where all in attendance. With George among those on the panel, talk of the last books did come up, but no real timeline was given. He did, however, promise to speed up the writing for fear of the show passing him up. There was also talk of the Red Wedding and how each of the cast members had to deal with such a dramatic loss. There were many tears on set as each realized that it was their last days on set together. As if to lift spirits, there was a surprise appearance of Jason Momoa, who ran in, kissed Clarke and ran back out screaming “I’m not dead, yet!” Not much was said about season four, though when asked the cast all agreed on how excited they are about filming it. Season four is set to air Spring 2014.
