Game Of Thrones: Season Three Pictures And Video
Images of cast released as preview for forthcoming series of fantasy drama...
You wait ages for a sneak preview of the next series of Game Of Thrones - and then two come along at once.
Not only do we have a bumper batch of cast photos from series three of the HBO fantasy drama, but also a video interviewing cast members on location in Iceland.
The pictures include the first image released of veteran actress Diana Rigg - who is playing Lady Olenna Tyrell (aka the Queen of Thorns) in the new series.
Other stars in the pictures include Clive Russell as Brynden “The Blackfish” Tully, Thomas Brodie Sangster as Jojen Reed, Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed, Richard Dormer as Beric Dondarrion, and Paul Kaye as Thoros of Myr.
Although there is no publicity image of new recruit Mackenzie Crook as Orell, the star of The Office is shown in costume in the video below.
Speaking about filming in Iceland, he says: "The landscape is just, like, it's so otherworldly... it's like you're on a different planet."
And director Daniel Minahan adds: "When you see people's breath, that's really people's breath. And when you see icicles coming out of their moustaches and beards, it's real icicles."
The video clip ends with Ciaran Hinds in character as Mance Rayder warning: "When the long night comes, north of the Wall becomes the kingdom of the dead."
The show returns to Sky Atlantic on 1 April at 9pm.
