Amanda Peet, Who Is Married to 'Game of Thrones' Show Creator, Reveals What She Thought of Finale

Actress Amanda Peet made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen this week and she was asked what she really thought about the Game of Thrones finale. This is a great question because Amanda is married to the HBO hit’s co-creator David Benioff.

Amanda responded that she “loved it” and she stands by the controversial finale of the show.

“I feel like some people didn’t want to say goodbye. I don’t know,” she continued. “Look, maybe I’m just too close to it, but I didn’t understand the blowback. For God’s sake, people, it’s a television show.”

If you don’t know, an alternate ending was actually filmed for Game of Thrones. Fans actually demanded a reshoot from HBO but were not successful in their efforts.

Amanda Peet Talks About Her New Role as Betty Broderick in 'Dirty John' Season 2

Amanda Peet is opening up about the brand new season of Dirty John, which this time focuses on Betty Broderick.

Here’s what the 48-year-old actress shared with Variety:

On the advice she got from Holland Taylor: “Before I started, she gave me a great piece of advice: Don’t play crazy. She encouraged me to look at each scene as a legitimate protest or a justified experience…and the story is riveting. They appeared to be such an average, suburban American family. And yet the story ended up being so violent and tragic. I think Alexandra [Cunningham, creator] feels that there’s value in exploring how and why — how could that have happened?”

On her decision to not comment on Betty’s current appeals: “I made a decision that I’m not going to comment on the legal proceedings. Partly just because I have no business doing so, but also I think Alexandra did a good job of showing that this was a fairly complicated case. Divorce laws then left no protections for women who had sublimated their own ambitions and careers when they had children. They were left with no money, and without a lot of legal power decades later — and no earning power, really.”

On having an all-woman production team behind the show: “It’s just a beautiful kind of acknowledgment that everyone is dealing with kids who are being left at home while we were doing these 13- to 14-hour days. That was powerful.”

Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story, focuses on Betty, a San Diego housewife whose husband, Dan (Christian Slater), cruelly discards her, for which she takes murderous revenge.

The new season kicks off on June 2 on USA. Check out some of the pics from filming here!
