Amanda Peet’s Husband Created ‘Game of Thrones’ But She Thought It Was a Dumb Idea
Here's a fun fact: Amanda Peet’s husband co-created HBO's smash hit series ‘Game of Thrones,’ and that's definitely something that has worked out for him. Good for you, David Benioff! People love your show! It is wonderful! Still, the first time Peet heard the pitch, she didn't like it. She thought it was “silly.” Oops.
Peet was very honest about her feelings about the show on last night's ‘Conan,’ during which host Conan O'Brien pressed her to share more of her (initial) thoughts on the series. The good news is, however, Peet has come around on the show. She likes it now, even though the ‘Conan’ audience was definitely resistant to hearing her side. It's okay, guys, she is a fan now! One of us, one of us.
