Dispatches From The Seven Kingdoms: Queens and Daughters


By Bryan Cogman

First day of shooting and we're starting with a juicy scene between Ned (Sean Bean) and Queen Cersei (Lena Headey).  Brian Kirk directing.  Marco Pontecorvo shooting.  Fans of the novels will not recognize this particular scene as it doesn't exist in the books...

A few hours later and we've moved on to a scene from my episode: Episode IV (hereafter known as "the best episode").  It's a tender father/daughter moment between Ned and Arya (played by Maisie Williams). It's hard to describe what I'm feeling right now...Sean Bean is speaking words that I wrote.  Thrilling.  Humbling.  Kind of terrifying.
