Dunk Takes the Field

June 22, 2024

There’s a tournament in Ashford Meadow, and a hedge knight who wants to enter.   He call himself Ser Duncan the Tall, but goes by Dunk to his friends.   “Dunk the Lunk, thick as a castle wall,” some will say, but he means to be a champion.

Provided he can scrape up enough coin for some armor.

Dunk’s a large lad, and good steel does not come cheap.

Peter Claffey will be playing our favorite hedge knight, and he’s already been sighted around Ashford.   HBO was kind enough to provide a picture… and hot damn, he looks as though he just stepped out of the pages of LEGENDS.

Filming started last week in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where much of the original GAME OF THRONES as shot.   Based on my novella “The Hedge Knight,” the new show will debut in 2025.   Only six episodes for this one.  A novella is considerably shorter than a novel (particularly one of my novels), so there’s less source material.

I hear that everything is going very well just now.   Next month I will get to see for myself.   Parris and I will be taking a few of our minions over to Belfast in mid July, to visit the set, meet the cast, and take in some jousting.
