While the whole Conor McGregor cameo turned out to be Fake News, Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin has revealed that his actual dream cameo for the show would be former United States president and all around cool guy, Barack Obama.
Big George was taking part in a live Q&A when a fan asked who his dream guest would be. "Well, Barack Obama would be pretty exciting," replied the author. "And actually, he IS a fan of the show."
George didn't elaborate on how he planned to coax Obama away from his kite surfing holidays and multi-million pound book deal, but we're hoping it's because he's too busy finishing off a book of his own: the sixth in the GoT that he has taken his sweet time with; writing to fans earlier in the year: "Not done yet, but I've made progress. But not as much as I hoped a year ago, when I thought to be done by now.
"I think it will be out this year. (But hey, I thought the same thing last year)."
Oh well, at least you have season seven of the show to look forward to?
