Personal Quote:

[on the 'Game of Thrones' series] Wiser network heads might have said 'You can't kill Sean Bean nine episodes into your show'. Guess what? The lead dies. That's why HBO is HBO. They break all the rules.

Trivia:

His real name is David Friedman. "Benioff" comes from his maternal grandfather, Shim Benioff. See more »
