From Sophie @Reviewedthebook
I loved Ned and practically mourned his death when he was killed off in the Game of Thrones books. But I did finally recover and when I got to watching the TV series, I was kind of looking forward to seeing how they would do it. I loved how brave killing him off was and how everyone watching who hadn’t read the books didn’t think the show would survive without him. I thought it was the best acting in the first series too.
