My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer and I have my mind…and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge. That’s why I read so much Jon Snow.” - Tyrion, HBO’s Game of Thrones
The lovely Dorothy Ferebee is our Station Services Coordinator as well as our resident Game of Thrones fan. The books and the show. Intimately familiar with both and loving the new season, she says the quote above embodies her favorite character, Tyrion, played by Peter Dinklage, and has been enjoying the new season a great deal. Referring to Tyrion, she says, “He’s vertically challenged and he has to fight all the time because he’s a dwarf. Where they all use swords he uses his mind.”
If you’re curious about what Game of Thrones creator David Benioff was up to before Game of Thrones, here’s an interview with him from 2003.
