Exasperated George R.R. Martin Reveals Who His Favorite “Game Of Thrones” Character Is

Everyone has a favorite character on Game of Thrones, including author George R.R. Martin. According to an entry on his LiveJournal page, he gets asked the question constantly and finally had enough:

Tyrion is my favorite character. Okay? OKAY? Can we PLEASE put that one to rest?? I love all my viewpoint characters, Arya and Sansa and Bran, Jon Snow and Brienne, Arianne and Cersei and Jaime, Theon, even Victarion and the Damphair, ALL of them, but I love Tyrion the bestest. Tyrion son of Tywin, the Imp, second son of Casterly Rock. How many bloody times do I need to say it?? I swear, from now on, whenever anybody asks me, “who is you favorite character,” I am going to start naming characters from other people’s books. Cugel the Clever. Flashman. Gatsby. Hotspur. Solomon Kane. A different one each time…

I don’t think anyone is really surprised by the news, but it’s always nice to have confirmation. However, should I ever find myself in the position to speak with George R.R. Martin, I’m going to have to ask just to see which random characters he starts naming.
