“Game of Thrones” fans won’t be able to attend the show’s fifth season premiere event in San Francisco — they can’t even go to Westeros — but they can do the next best thing and watch the event on their computers. Or in an open flame, if they’re a priest or priestess of R’hllor. Pretty sure prophetic flames also get Facebook.
The event will be held March 23 at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco and will be live-streamed on Facebook at facebook.com/GameofThrones at 6 p.m. Pacific.
Fans will also be able to ask questions of the stars, including Alfie Allen, Ian Beattie, Dean-Charles Chapman, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Liam Cunningham, Peter Dinklage, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jerome Flynn, Aidan Gillen, Conleth Hill, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Michiel Huisman, Michael McElhatton, Hannah Murray, Iwan Rheon, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten and Maisie Williams. Questions can be submitted via Facebook or Instagram (@GameofThrones).
Fans will be able to follow with the hashtag #GoTPremiereSF.
The event will also air a behind-the-scenes video following the red carpet coverage that will feature more new footage from the upcoming fifth season of the HBO hit. It’s worth it for regular HBO subscribers who will have to wait until April 12.
Sadly, it appears the dragons Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion aren’t able to make it. There’s always next year…
