Linda Hamilton who originally played Sarah Connor in the first two Terminator movies mentions Lena in an interview:

She was very good, very good. I know how difficult it is to step into someone’s shoes, or to fill someone’s shoes. I would never want to be the standard. I guess it’s great that I’m the standard, but each one of us has our own special gifts that we can bring to a part. She wasn’t trying to be Linda Hamilton, she was trying to play Sarah Connor. Her version is just as valid as mine.

Network programming chief Michael Lombardo says the dailies look ‘fantastic’

HBO’s dailies for the fantasy pilot “Game of Thrones” look “fantastic,” and the project is ripe for a series pickup, according to the network’s programming chief Michael Lombardo.

Executives are “sitting on pins and needles” waiting to view a rough cut in two weeks, Lombardo said. If the pilot is greenlit, “Game of Thrones” should hit HBO in March or April of 2011, and would span a novel’s worth of material per season.

Principal photography began in late October in Northern Ireland and wrapped up in Morocco in November. HBO reportedly spent between $5 million and $10 million on the pilot. Now they are apparently looking into booking two hangars at the Northern Ireland Paint Hall filming site for the next five years.

It seems like Lena’s latest project, the pilot for the series Game of Thrones, might just be one of this year’s most anticipated projects  not only by the fans of the books series, but also by tv critics. The Winter is Coming Blog and the Game of Thrones website report a number of articles where the series is mentioned. Here’s a list of them with the relevant parts. Check them out!

Let’s start with MSN Canada that mentions Lena as the big-name actor with the lead role in the pilot:

There are already two blogs devoted to following the casting and Northern Ireland location shoot of this series’ pilot episode, which HBO hasn’t yet confirmed will air. The reason for the feverish fan interest? The series is an adaptation of the first novel in George R.R. Martin’s beloved fantasy series that uses knights, tournaments, creatures and icy locations in the service of telling human stories where villains aren’t always the bad guys and where the honourable solution isn’t always the best one in the long run. (Thanks to Time Magazine and the Chicago Tribune for these observations.) Lena Headey from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will play a royal woman who’s as cunning as the men around her. Peter Dinklage, Sean Bean, Jennifer Ehle and Mark Addy costar. With any luck, HBO will green light enough games to take us through all the novels in Martin’s saga.

HBO are to make their final decision on whether to press ahead with the Game of Thrones series in March this year. The pilot episode which is in post production at the moment is the first episode of the proposed series based on George RR Martins ‘A song of Ice and Fire Novels’.

This deadline has been confirmed by numerous sources including David Weiss the producer and George RR Martin the writer of the novels and an executive producer on the pilot. This wait is much longer than many fans had hoped for as HBO has picked up a number of pilots up very quickly in recent history, and fans had been hoping for the same.

HBO do seem to be committed to the project however, The cast assembled for this production is impressive with the five biggest names to date being Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Mark Addy, Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage.
