    In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George Martin seemed pretty pumped up about the series after viewing nine of the ten episodes of the show’s first season.

    He said, “It’s powerful, it’s visceral, it’s dark, it’s like a Shakespearean tragedy. [The characters] are all flawed. They’re all human. They do good things. They do bad things. They’re driven by lust for power, jealousy, old wounds – just like human beings. Just like I wrote them.”

    That king, King Viserys Targaryen is played by Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz). “He is a good man but a bad king in that he’s trying to please everybody,” Considine told The Hollywood Reporter about his character in the series.
