“Mr. President? The fate of Jon Snow is about to be revealed in the screening room.”
At the Game of Thrones premiere event in Hollywood on Sunday, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed rumors thatBarack Obama wanted – and will get – episodes of their ultra-secret show ahead of their debut on HBO.
During HBO’s Facebook Live stream from the event’s red carpet, interviewer Veronica Belmont asked the Emmy-winning team if they had any “ah-ha … we’ve totally made it” moments coming into season 6.
“I think, for both of us, finding out the President wanted advanced copies of the episodes was an ‘ah-ha’ moment,” Weiss said. “That was a very strange moment.”
