George R.R. Martin Sets the Record Straight for People Who Think He Enjoys Killing Off Main Characters

In an animated short by Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly, author George R.R. Martin sets the record straight for people who think that he thoroughly enjoys killing off main characters in his books.

George RR Martin is basically the modern equivalent of Jack the Ripper, except he keeps his homicidal tendencies limited to literature (AS FAR AS WE KNOW…). It’s become a running joke how no character is safe on Game of Thrones, since he’ll wipe away major characters willy-nilly, without ever giving it a second thought. Why does he love bathing in our tears so much?
