'Game of Thrones' Star Responds to Petition for Rewritten Final Season

Jacob Anderson, who plays the role of Grey Worm on the hit show Game of Thrones, is speaking out in response to a petition started by fans who want the final season to be rewritten.

Nearly a million people have signed the petition, which says that series creators “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers.”

“I think it’s rude,” Jacob said during an interview with ABC’s Strahan and Sara. “Obviously, the show feels to people like it belongs to them. That’s really good – I think it’s really important when people take something into their heart and it means something to them.”

“However, it doesn’t. I just mean that in the sense that I was there and the crew, in particular, are like the hardest working people I’ve ever met. I think to trivialize their work in that way – I find it quite sad,” he said.

    I mainly produce roughly speaking $8837 per month web based . It is respectable wages to upgrade from my previous time-wasting work , Also neatest thing concerning it’s that I now do all my business in merely few hr day after day which makes me a much more of free moments than what I had before with my little ones. Here’s the best way to start out->->->->

    No-one’s trivialising the cast or crew. They’re criticising the bullsh*t writing this season, D&D said f*ck plot, f*ck character development, let’s go for shock. They’ve made watching the show pointless.

    This is EXACTLY how I feel about season 8 so far. The acting cinematography (except episode 3) have all been great as expected. It’s the story itself that has been lacking so far. Imagine if the previous 7 seasons where like this. The show would have been canceled after the pilot. Martin better get back to writing or his legacy will be in tatters.
