Fans of Game of Thrones, your Comic-Con International dreams were just made that much greater at the announcement of the HBO series’ panel host. Everyone’s favorite silly Scotsman, Craig Ferguson, has been tapped to moderate what is sure to be the biggest panel Hall H will see this year. Hooray!
Moderating a panel is no small feat — we here at Nerdist are doing a few of ‘em! — but Ferguson is no novice to the SDCC scene. Just last year he moderated the epic Doctor Who panel (a show he, like us, loves and adores).
In lieu of timey-wimey business, Ferguson’s jaunt through the Westerosi world will come chockablock with some of your favorites in addition to the series’ showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and author and co-EP George R.R. Martin. Hall H will be downright electrified on Friday at 1:40PM with stars John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Ser Jaime Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Kit Harington (Jon Snow, knower of nothing), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya “Serial Murderperson-to-Be” Stark) all slated for attendance. A very exciting prospect indeed, no?
We can only hope this all will result in a part being made special for Ferguson. They’ve already deviated quite a bit from the books — c’mon, what’s a little more? Unless, of course, you brilliant book readers can think of a part he’d be perfect for, because in that case we’re all ears (in the comments).
So, who’s going to be heading to that line on the mega-super-duper-early side? Let us know in the comments.
