I am late to post about this, but I was very saddened by the news of a couple recent deaths. The world of television and film lost a titan with the passing of Dame Diana Rigg. Such an amazing talent. It was such an honor to have her on GAME OF THRONES as the Queen of Thorns... pic.twitter.com/kD3R3Fl7V9— George RR Martin (@GRRMspeaking) September 14, 2020
