Witness Zombie George RR Martin In A Z Nation Cameo


Game Of Thrones creator George RR Martin takes more time out from writing his next novel in the A Song Of Ice And Fire series to make a guest appearance on the Syfy show Z Nation as himself. Although he’s not quite himself, to be honest.

Martin is set to appear in the eighth episode of the season, when he will be playing a zombie Goerge RR Martin, tied to his desk and forced to work on his books by a character called the Collector, who captures celebrity zombies.

It’s a sly reference to the fact that fans become exasperated at Martin’s legendarily glacial work rate when it comes to writing new books in the series. Even the title of the novel he’s signing in the Z Nation episode – Promise Of Spring – seems to be part of the joke.

“I just want to prove to my fans that even in the Zombie Apocalypse, the Song Of Ice And Fire books will still come out!” says Martin with maybe more than just a hint of irony.

Well, okay, she’ll be playing an actress in a touring drama troupe playing a character based on Cersei Lannister. All very Hamlet. Someone trying the capture the conscience of the Queen? Or just taking the piss out of her after her shaming last season? This does tie in with preview chapters released from the next novel  in the A Song Of Ice And Fire series, The Winds Of Winter, which feature a troupe of actors performing a play called The Bloody Hand. Vanity Fair also reckons that the Richard E Grant will be playing is the leading of the troupe, who “specialises in portraying drunken aristocrats.” Sounds about right. (Oh, and don’t forget to check out Zombie George RR Martin). […]
