Taking time out from... possibly attempting to finish The Winds of Winter, the 6th book in the ridiculously epic Song of Ice and Fire series, George R.R. Martin has traded places with the hundreds of characters he's slain, and endured a very bloody cameo in... Sharknado 3!
The blood thirsty author appears in Syfy's latest tome of terror as an innocent cinema goer, whose eve of enjoying a movie about a shark with three heads (REFERENCE!), ends with him being deaded up in the most brutal (read: Martin-esque) of ways.
Most interestingly, it seems Sharknado's writer, Thunder Levin, is quite the Thrones fan, after he managed to squeeze in three huge hat-tips to the lore. There's a damn three headed shark, which alludes to the prophecy of the three headed dragon, Martin gets decapitated and he's sitting next to a blood stained bride. Genius, man. That's so good!
And somewhere Jon Snow laughed.
