Jon almost meets Bran and there's a storm
The Official Production Diary for HBO's "Game of Thrones" has posted an image from the set of Season 3 along with this post on the scene that was being filmed in Northern Ireland:
In the forests of Clandeboye, on a Wednesday afternoon in August, a man and his wife were walking their dog and heard the sound of a fight.
It was an important rehearsal, and the two main protagonists are two of my season favorites: an unexpected pairing, whose war of words is almost as full-on as the fight. This struggle has been choreographed and rehearsed for weeks, with each move carefully placed to match the terrain. The fighters wore pads and fell on crash matts, though for the close-ups later in the week, during the first night shoot of the season, the landing would not be quite so comfortable. It will be a character-defining scene, for more than one who is involved, so it has to be done well.
More departments began to arrive for a full run-through. VFX was involved in creating the final moments of the scene, and special effects had a lot to do to make it all work. Armoury had designed a special weapon for this scene alone, and there was a nervous moment when it was first tested against the wood of a massive tree stump and the body of one of our brave stunt guys.
The couple asked what was happening, and looked on for a while, but were gently guided toward the path. What happens next is too big a secret for anyone to know, and it certainly can’t be told by me.
would like to see guesses from showfags on who it might be. pretty sure I know.
Game of Thrones wins six Emmy awards!
Tonight the Academy held the Creative Arts Emmys, which gave awards out in various technical categories. Game of Thrones walked away with six statues! This already tops their haul last year of two total wins, and the main ceremony is still to come, where Thrones is up for outstanding drama series and outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.
Tonight’s wins came in the following categories: outstanding makeup (non-prosthetic), outstanding costumes, outstanding art direction, outstanding visual effects, outstanding sound editing and outstanding sound mixing. This was easily the most awards won by one program.
An edited two-hour version of the Creative Arts ceremony will air on Sept. 22 at 8 PM ET on Reelz Channel. The main ceremony airs on Sept. 23 at 7 PM ET on ABC.
I've always thought GOT's sound mixing was the best on television.
I'm guessing old Pete Dinklage is going to get nominated, but do you think Maisie Williams has a shot? She was great this year.
If not, I bet she will for Season 3.
Dwight is teaching Erin Dothraki in tonight's episode of The Office.
Wasn't sure where else to post this
People still watch the Office?
Been watching it since the beginning, might as well finish. It is what it is.
yea I still watch it too. fuck the haters. I finish what I start.
Fucking nailed it, HBO. I believe he was the cheeky prime minister's aide in The Queen as well.
And Brutus on Rome. Actually was a very similar character to Edmure.
True, good call.
That's where I recognize him from. Great choice
I'm a book fag and don't remember who this is. Need to reread the books lol.
From a show/book 2 perspective he's Catelyn's brother, heir to Riverrun
Some good speculative reading for Season 3.
Where will the various storylines end in S3: http://winteriscoming.net/2012/10/where-will-they-split-a-storm-of-swords/
What storylines will S3 leave out: http://io9.com/5950819/11-book-subplots-that-game-of-thrones-season-3-could-leave-out
No Coldhands? That would suck.
Great call by hbo. Tobias will nail that part
Spoiler: ASOIAF/Game of Thrones is #1.
I found it interesting that they said showfags referred to are called Unsullied (on forums other than this one, obviously) considering showfags technically don't what what the Unsullied is yet.
I wish we used terms like Bookwalkers and Unsullied.
My question is how do fans of the show know about the unsullied? If they don't spoil then how could they know something that comes up in the third season. Just a thought
I meant they shouldn't but Ilyrio did have Unsullied present when Drogo and Dany met. You could tell by the spiked helms.
yea but showfags have no clue what those guys are or why they would be different to any other guards.
Yeah that's what I was getting at.
Bookfags are subtly pulling one over on showfags.
this guy is such a good cunt. bookfags, is this character supposed to be a cunt? i will assume so.
stupid maybe, but not a cunt
the ASOIAF boards gave that name to them.
I prefer showfags
missandei and darrio naharis
I already hate Daario
looks like they are going away from martin's description of a tyroshi. i'm not sure how neon blue beards would look on tv
I guess HBO figures an American audience wants to see Dany suckle the dong of a white Daario instead of a brown one?
Daario looks like shit.
Dude looks nothing like Daario.
damn you guys are harsh. one picture and you're all over him.
There are quite a few characters in the show that don't look anything like the descriptions in the books (Tyrion, Xaro, etc.), but it doesn't bother me in the least. I'd rather the show cast a guy for his ability to capture the character rather than try and match someone up with GRRM's descriptions.
BTW, isn't Missandei supposed to be like 11 years old? no one seems to have an issue with her...
That's because she's hot and we're all hoping to se her tits
Plus with Dany
Doesn't llok like the description, but who really gives a fuck. The show will nail it.
I was excited to see the colorful shenanigans. It's part of his character.
I'm still pissed about what they did to Vargo Hoat. He would have been a great character.
I really wanted the lisp.
The lisp, the name, everything put together made him a really unique character.
it just makes you feel better for being a bookfag, you know how things are supposed to be.
It'll be the first time I get the privilege of freaking out over something when the showfags I watch GOT with have no idea why I'm mad. Like all of you did at various points of Season 2.
