28 March 2013 10:55 AM, PDT

Lori. T-Dog. Oscar. Axel. Merle. Lots of other people like Ben that we didn’t really care about. All of them bit the dust during season 3 of The Walking Dead.

'Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage on Tyrion's season 3 survival

28 March 2013 9:57 AM, PDT

If you’re the main character on a TV series, you generally remain the main character as long as you’re on the show.

But not much about HBO’s Game of Thrones is typical. Season one starred Sean Bean, whose character was killed off in the ninth episode. In season two, Peter Dinklage took over as the show’s unofficial lead, since his character, Tyrion Lannister, had a major arc defending King’s Landing against an invasion. In season 3, the game board is shaken up once again. This season really doesn’t have a main character. There are instead »

'Game of Thrones' John Bradley defends fantasy fans

27 March 2013 4:51 PM, PDT

Some on the Game of Thrones team avoid the f-word. The HBO hit is a complex grown-up drama about human relationships, they say, that just happens to take place in a world that’s a tad different from our world.

But John Bradley, who plays kind and oft-abused Nights Watch member Samwell Tarly on the show, supports Thrones owning the fantasy label. “A lot of people involved with the show say this isn’t really a fantasy, and that it’s mainly about humanity, and that’s all great,” he says. “But if you do like fantasy it is a fantasy. »
