Los Angeles, April 14 (IANS) US President Barack Obama will get to watch season 6 of HBO’s popular fantasy drama TV series “Game of Thrones” before any die-hard fans are able to.
Showrunners David Beinoff and D.B. Weiss have confirmed that Obama wanted advanced copies of upcoming season of the TV series, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“For both of us finding out that the President wanted advanced copies of the episodes, that was an ‘ah-ha moment’,” Weiss said at the premiere event of the series, adding that “was a very strange moment”.
Asked if they granted his wish, Weiss replied: “Yes. He’s the leader of the free world.” Beinoff chimed in, saying, “When the commander-in-chief says, ‘I want to see advance episodes,’ what are you gonna do?”
