Infinite thanks to @killingmesoftlywiththesesongs for translating it!
It was a long way, the 19 year old British Sophie Turner had to take: from school to the fight about the Seven Kingdoms. In April the prize-winning fantasy show Game of Thrones will come back, in all their murderous, seductive and fire breathing glory. Again, millions of viewers will turn in to watch this young lady fight against all odds for the honor of House Stark. Hail to the Queen!
Interviewer: “Rytsas“, Sophie!
I: That’s “hello“ in High Valyrian.
S: Really? I’m impressed.
I: Real fans of the show learn the fantasy languages Dothraki and High Valyrian, cosplayer slip into the costumes of the characters on world’s biggest comic exhibition Comic-Con. Do you think that’s kind of crazy, too?
S: Oh yes. We visited the Comic-Con. That was kind of weird. Very strange to see yourself there. However, those responsible had to close the stand after a few minutes already because there was such a large crowd. It was crazy, how many people came. That’s probably what you call real commitment. Somehow it’s very impressive: Fantasy is by now a mass phenomenon.
I: That you have to explain.
S: A few years ago it were only nerds that were interested in that kind of stuff. But Game of Thrones isn’t just your typical medieval saga with great costumes, dragons and dwarves. It has so many different story arcs, a lot of sex, a gay story, treason. Maybe a bit too much treason. Anyway, there’s something for everyone.Read Full Article
