Daniel Portman, who plays Podrick Payne on Game of Thrones, was recently in Australia for the Oz-Comic-Con fan events. When asked by AAP, he had an interesting answer for who he thinks will end up sitting on the Iron Throne.
“I don’t think there’s going to be a throne. I think the smartest thing to do is get rid of that and everybody runs their own little part, and Daenerys is the prime minister. I think it’s potentially going to be a model for a potential socialist utopia, it can be a guidebook,” he said. Maybe people could look at Game of Thrones and go ‘no dragons, but maybe we’ll melt down all these thrones and get rid of the monarchy and start doing real work.”
