** Creator/GeorgeRRMartin is a big fan of the series - to the point where he [[http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2016/10/westworld-game-of-thrones-crossover-george-rr-martin offered]] the producers a ''{{crossover}}'', with Westeros acting as the original film's "MedievalWorld", filled with ''Series/GameOfThrones'' cameos. Amusingly, the producers' explanation for why they didn't take him up on it is adorably respectful; they didn't want to imply that ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' was just a theme park.

** Creator/GeorgeRRMartin himself suggested that the series also include the film's Medieval World, allowing for a few cameos from ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Amusingly, the producers' explanation for why they didn't take him up on it is that it would mean admitting that dragons aren't real.

would mean admitting encourage a crossover. We should be so lucky.\\
'''Lisa Joy''': I need to be believe
