Alan Taylor (born 13 January 1959) is an American Emmy winning director. He has directed extensively for television and has also directed three theatrically-released movies, Palookaville, The Emperor's New Clothes and Kill the Poor. For HBO he has directed episodes of Rome, Deadwood, Carnivale, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos and Sex and the City. His other TV directing credits include Mad Men and Lost.

For Game of Thrones Taylor has directed episodes 9 and 10 of the first season and was the only Season 1 director to return for Season 2, where he directed episodes 1, 2, 8 and 10. He also joined the production team as a co-executive producer for the second season.

Taylor's availability for the third season of Thrones was reduced after it was announced that he would be directing the movie Thor: The Dark World for Marvel Studios in 2012. It was initially hoped that he would still be able to direct one episode of the season,[1] but it was later revealed that the Thor: The Dark World schedule would not allow this.[2] Taylor is also directing the fifth installment of Terminator film series Terminator Genisys.

On June 29, 2016, it was announced that Taylor would be returning to direct in the seventh season.[3]
