Charles Dance, the actor playing Tywin Lannister in the HBO Game of Thrones series, let slip that he was supposed to begin work on season four later this year. Though not confirmed for a fourth season yet by HBO, Dance seemed to take it as a given that seveal scripts were being written and work would begin on the new season later this year.
We’re about to start season four aren’t we? This year. We get scripts pretty early on, much earlier on than in similar series, usually you get perhaps one episode and you just have to trust that what’s going to come in subsequent episodes is going to be as good as the one you’ve got, but in this I think there are six scripts already written, and we will probably be able to see them with more than adequate time to prepare before we start shooting.
Despite the panic of the panel moderator, much like his character Tywin, Charles had no interest in being interrupted. At the end of the presser, people from HBO informed the press that season four has not been officially green-lit yet.
