Production Design Featurette - Season 4
Watch a behind the scenes look at 'Game of Thrones' with Production Designer Deborah Riley. Riley created (COUNT THEM) 104 new sets for 'Game of Thrones' Season 4. This doesn't include all of the old standby sets. The featurette is only about 2-1/2 minutes long, but well worth the watch. The set designs and visual landscapes are unlike anything else on television right now. It should come as no surprise that each episode of 'Game of Thrones' cost somewhere around $6 million to make.
"On The Set" Featurette - Season 4
Spoilers: HBO has also released 16 character photos, which give us a bit of insight on what to expect during Season 4. It looks like Jamie and Daenerys are sporting some new threads this season. Also, get ready for the purple wedding (Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrel) and Lady Stoneheart. Perhaps the biggest spoiler is that 'Game of Thrones' Season 4 will depart from the books.
Casting News: HBO has shared lots of casting info recently. Two roles, Daario Naharis and The Mountain have been recast. Michiel Huisman will be Daario and Julius Bjornsson will take the reigns as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane from Ian Whyte. India Varma will be Ellaria Sand, Joel Fry joins as Hizdahr zo Loraq, and Pedro Pascal will be the Red Viper himself aka Oberyn Martell. Admittedly, I can't say I am overly excited about all of the castings, but if there's one thing I know about GoT's is that they MAKE IT WORK.
The world of Ice and Fire comes to HBO on April 6, 2014.
