Signed Game of Thrones script did not sell at auction

An autographed Game of Thrones script owned by a Stafford woman which was expected to sell for thousands did not meet its reservation.

In 2015, British actor Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn in the series, donated an autographed Game of Thrones script to a charity auction to raise money for the Global White Lion Protection Trust which fights to prevent the extinction of white lions in South Africa.

The script was snapped up for £1,170 by fan Angela Raybould, who lives near Stafford.

She went along to the event at The Star pub in Great Wyrley and had to make it hers.

She said: “My sister, Louise Ford, told me the script was being auctioned off at her local pub and I decided that, whatever it cost, I had to have it. There were a few people bidding against me but they gradually dropped out and I was lucky enough to get it.”

The script went under the hammer at Hansons Auctioneers on Tuesday with an estimate of £5,000-£7,000, but did not meet its reservation.

The Game of Thrones typed movie script, entitled The Children, was written by David Benioff and D B Weiss in 2013 and is based on A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin.

First broadcast in 2011 on TV network HBO, the fantasy drama has been a worldwide hit.
