We learned via TV Guide that HBO’s Game of Thrones will present an upcoming wedding described as “colorful and potentially tragic”. The union of King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) happens on the fourth season premiere of the fantasy series slated to air in spring 2014.
Here’s more from the publication:
“It’s going to be the wedding of the year, and as memorable in its own way as our wedding last season,” promises the books’ author, George R.R. Martin, of the marriage of King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). “It’s what the fans call the Purple Wedding, based on the color of the wine, which plays a big part.”
Martin says the wedding scenes “look spectacular. The bride’s dress incorporates roses, there are 77 courses at the dinner feast, and there’s some wonderful halftime entertainment.”
Are you looking forward to see the show’s “purple wedding”?
