Naomi Watts was caught off guard and laughed her way through a recent interview with Variety at Sundance Festival while trying to deflect questions about the upcoming HBO prequel to Game of Thrones. The actress insisted she had to keep her lips sealed on all things “Game of Thrones.” While she didn’t reveal anything about the plot or her character, she did express her excitement over the role, confirming the GOT era is far from over.
The GOT prequel, which reports state is currently in the pilot phase, is one of five “Game of Thrones” projects in the works at HBO. The new feature will have original masterminds, Jane Goldman -who co-created the project with author George R.R. Martin- on board again. The duo wrote the story together and will both serve as executive producers.
