The author behind A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R. Martin, continues his quest to avoid writing an end to the saga that spawned the TV show Game of Thrones. Martin was seen briefly in the TV movie Sharnado 3: Oh Hell No when it debuted last night. In a bit of poetic justice, his character was promptly killed. Director director Anthony C. Ferrante had this to say about the cameo:
"We wanted him in the movie, he wanted to be in the movie, so we went to New Mexico, and we shot it for a day,” Ferrante said. “He originally had a line — and we’ll add it back in for the DVD — where he went outside, shivered, and said, ‘Winter’s coming.’ But we thought about it and decided that we wanted people to watch it and go, ‘Wait, is that … Is that George R.R. Martin?’ ”
Beyond the fun factor of spending a day with Martin and filming the cameo, Ferrante was also excited about the reaction that the author’s appearance would induce in a certain segment of the viewership. “I love the fact that we’re going to piss off all the Game of Thrones fans," he said. "Instead of writing his damned book, he was busy hanging out with us, filming a scene for Sharknado 3!”
