For anyone as obsessed with Game of Thrones as I am, this two minute video will most likely be the most exciting part of your day. While season 3 of GoT doesn’t air until March 31st, HBO has released a tiny featurette giving us a behind the scenes look at some of the locations and characters in the new season.
I couldn’t help but start drooling when I saw the extremely sexy Richard Madden, who plays Robb Stark. It’s also funny to hear Peter Dinklage when he drops his atrocious accent.
While the first two seasons were essentially an adaptation of the first two books in the series, many characters were purposely left out of season 2. You’ll be happy to know that the writers were merely saving them until they became more central to the plot.
Season 3 will cover about the first half of the 3rd book. The show’s creators have always said that their vision for their show was an adaptation of the series as a whole, not of the individual books. This allows them to move things around a bit in terms of timelines and locations to make more cohesive seasons.Fans of the books will also be excited to know that Meera and Jojen Reed will finally be appearing on the show. Jojen will be played by the adorable Thomas Sangster who some of you will remember as that little boy from Love Actually.
