There are very few TV series out there that can illicit excitement by name alone. Good marketing requires powerful images or exciting clips to swoop in and grab a viewer’s attention, but every now and then a series will come about that can stir up a conversation and speculation using the minimal amount of effort. Game of Thrones is one of those shows. Just take a look at the first teaser for Season 3. The HBO series manages to be as gripping as ever using a simple graphic – the abbreviated GoT with three swords going through the “o” – and a woman’s voice over. We’re then shown Season 3’s premiere date, March 31, 2013. All this is shown in a mere 15 seconds!
Game of Thrones is without a doubt the kind of show that will go down in history for uniting television viewers from across the world. It seems like everyone »

There's still more than four months to go until the premiere of the third season of Game of Thrones, so to help ease the wait and further fuel anticipation for the next batch of episodes, HBO ran a brief teaser trailer prior to the latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, and now it's made its way online for all to see. Before you get too excited, it's only fifteen seconds in length and features no footage, but rather a voice-over teasing the epic action that's coming our way in March 2013.
The third season of Game of Thrones is based upon the first half of A Storm of Swords, the third book in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, and will see the show's already enormous cast bolstered by several newcomers to Westeros, including Brynden Tully (Clive Russell), Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), (Oldenna »
Secret State is just like real British politics – but sexed up and Spookified
I think the prime minister is abroad at the moment isn't he? In the Gulf, selling arms to countries with dodgy human-rights records; not in America talking to a dodgy petrochemical company as the Pm is in this political conspiracy thriller, Secret State (Channel 4). Same idea, though – dubious big business ahead of domestic hardship.
It's difficult not to replace characters with their counterparts from the real world. Of course, no one would wish it on our Pm, but if his plane were to come down in suspicious circumstances (Boris, was that you, with your big grouse-buster blunderbuss?) on the way back, there could be a similar scenario. The home secretary and the foreign secretary fight for power. So that's Felix Durrel (Rupert Graves) and Ros Yelland (Sylvestra Le Touzel), respectively, in Secret State; Theresa May and William Hague in real life. »

Filming on the King's Landing scenes of the third season of HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones wrapped in the coastal city of Dubrovnik, Croatia this past week, but before the production moved on Croatian internet television channel DrubrovnikTV managed to grab some interviews with show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and executive producer Frank Doelger, as well as capturing behind-the-scenes footage of a scene between Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillan) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner).
Adapted from the first half of the third book in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire saga, A Storm of Swords, the third season is set to expand the already enormous ensemble cast with a host of new characters, including Brynden Tully (Clive Russell), Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), (Oldenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg), Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon), Selyse Baratheon (Tara Fitzgerald), Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye »
If you’ve been watching USA’s Political Animals then you might see why the folks over at HBO’s Game of Thrones thought Ciarán Hinds would nicely as Mance Rayder, the “King Beyond the Wall” who presides over the Free Folk north of the Wall. In Animals, Hinds plays a Bill Clinton-George Bush hybrid womanizer who miraculously spent two terms as president despite his hard-living lifestyle and lack of common sense. But Hinds is not a stranger to leadership roles nor HBO. Fans of Rome may remember him as Gaius Julius Caesar and he’s shown up recently in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, John Carter, and The Debt. EW broke the news earlier today. If you’re not caught up with GoT, then beware of spoilers below.
The Ireland native will return to his native birthplace of Belfast, where GoT shoots and sets up its production and »

After a long and lengthy search process, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have finally cast Irish actor Ciarán Hinds as Mance Rayder. Entertainment Weekly announced the casting, and we couldn't be more thrilled about the news. While we always pictured Mance to be a bit younger, the "Rome" star has the look and the acting prowess to pull off the complicated Night's Watch deserter-turned-Wildling leader.
Mance will be one of the most integral new characters in the coming seasons of "Game of Thrones," and his relationship with Jon Snow adds some new dimensions to the bastard Stark child. As a character who was previously only discussed with disdain for abandoning his post at the Night's Watch, Rayder has major roles in both "A Storm of Swords" (seasons three and likely four of the HBO show) and "A Dance with Dragons" (likely »

The biggest new Game of Thrones role is going to…
The Rome actor has been cast as Wildling leader Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall. Rayder has united the disparate clans of the Far North behind a single mission: To attack The Wall. He’s been frequently referenced (though unseen) in the HBO hit fantasy drama’s first two seasons. In the second season finale, undercover Night’s Watchman Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was being taken to meet Rayder.
The casting caps months — years, really — of online speculation about who would play Rayder. For awhile, Hinds’ Rome »

The third season of "Game of Thrones" is headed to the Riverlands, and now we have our first taste of what they will look like.
Some new set photos that show the Tully estate Riverrun have hit the web courtesy of HBO Watch. Though the show follows the story of Catelyn Tully, the widowed wife of Eddard Stark, and we've met her sister Lysa in the first season, we've never had a chance to see the lands where the Tullys come from. Until now, that is.
Despite the fact that Riverrun is introduced earlier in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels, the HBO series will be visiting the ancestral seat of House Tully for the first time in the upcoming season. Two major Tully family members have already been cast: Clive Russell as Brynden "Blackfish" Tully, Catelyn's uncle, and Tobias Menzies as Edmure, Catelyn and Lysa's younger brother. »

Gary Lightbody is to make a cameo in the third season of Game of Thrones. The Snow Patrol frontman recently filmed a brief stint on the HBO fantasy drama, as announced on the band's Facebook page. "So I did my scene this morning for Game Of Thrones," Lightbody wrote. "I looked like this. Can't say much - just it's no pivotal role. Fun!" Dame Diana Rigg (The Avengers), Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Tara Fitzgerald (Waking the Dead), Tobias Menzies (Casino Royale), (more) »

Sometimes casting news comes along so exciting of it’s enough to reduce a writer to excited hysterics. In this case, the announcement of the new cast members for Game Of Thrones season three did just that to me. Thus my article:
Ok, joke over. But yes, the creators of Game Of Thrones have got some cracking actors joining them for season three!
Formerly Ms Emma Peel in The Avengers, Dame Diana Rigg will be swapping cat suits for crowns as Lady Oleanna Tyrell, better known as the Queen of Thorns. Mackenzie Crook, no stranger to top-class fantasy after stints in both Pirates Of The Caribbean and the BBC’s Merlin, plays Orell.
Joining them are comedian Paul Kaye (otherwise known as Dennis »

The epic Hall H was the site of the epic Game of Thrones panel on the Friday of Comic-Con 2012. On the panel were Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), and Richard Madden (Robb Stark). Author George R. R. Martin served as moderator, and he did an admirable job with his questions for the cast and for executive producer Carolyn Strauss who was also on the panel. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) had been expected on the panel but was injured recently (don’t worry, it’s not supposed to affect his role in Season 3).
The panel began with Martin introducing this Season 2 recap featurette, followed by a new cast featurette:

Game Of Thrones made a big splash at Comic-Con by introducing 14 new cast members that are to be added for the third season of the HBO fantasy drama. It includes a few notable wildlings, like Tormund Giantsbane, “Blackfish” and Edmure Tully, the all important Reed children and a couple senior members of the Brotherhood Without Banners. The names and faces will look familiar to many, and a video introduction that appeared at the Con will get you a better idea as to who is joining Game Of Thrones next spring, which is embedded below the list of casting additions.
Diana Rigg (TV’s The Avengers) will play Olenna Tyrell, “The Queen of Thorns.” Mackenzie Crook (the British Office, Pirates Of The Caribbean): wildling raider Orell.

The Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel didn't have anything in the way of Season 3 footage to share a few days ago. Production on the new season, scheduled to premiere on March 30, 2013, only recently got underway.
Instead, HBO announced a small army's worth of new cast additions including Diana Rigg as the Queen of Thornes. Almost simultaneously, the Game of Thrones: Season 2 Blu-ray box set pre-order began to climb the sales charts at online retailer Amazon.com.

More than ever, this year's San Diego Comic Con saw the big movie launches scaled back while television and video games moved to the fore. Dozens of panels took place for various and much loved TV shows, here's a breakdown of the key news, trailers and revelations from several of them:
The upcoming season will shake up the formula, dropping the heavy arc elements in favour of a wider variety of episodes including ones set in the Old West (but shot in Spain), a visit with Nefertiti, and even dinosaurs in space.
Showrunner Steven Moffat says the big question left by last year's finale will be answered - “It's been there from the start. Other Time Lords have had names — he never gives his. Obviously the question is tremendously important and only I know why. We'll find out the truth." Moffat added that this season there'll be more »

HBO’s Game of Thrones is currently one of the biggest and best shows on TV. Not only is it done on an epic scale, but it also features a consistently high level of quality in its storytelling, so it’s no surprise that the show’s panel drew a massive audience at Comic-Con earlier today.
The panel, which was moderated by the books’ author, George R.R. Martin, included appearances from producer Carolyn Strauss as well as stars Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Tully), Richard Madden (Robb Stark), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen).
The main highlights of the panel were several casting decisions for the show’s upcoming third season. Those that were announced include:

Television took over Comic-Con in a big way today, as no less than three big shows invaded Hall H, with The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones enjoying crowded panels. And though the Dead crew brought a sizzle reel of fresh footage from the third season (due on screens this October), it was Game Of Thrones that made news with word on additional cast members for its own season three, including Diana Rigg, Mackenzie Crook.Yes, Mrs Peel from the original Avengers, Gareth from the original Office and Paul Kaye from… the original Dennis Pennis appearances are all going to be part of the show next year. And they were just three of the names announced.So let’s take a quick rundown, shall we? Clive Russell will be Brynden "The Blackfish" Tully, the estranged uncle of Cat and renowned knight who is a welcome ally to Robb Stark’s cause. »
HBO's Game of Thrones has been one of the biggest draws at San Diego Comic-Con thus far. The line to get into the panel was monstrous even knowing there was no possibility of footage from Season 3 to debut.
What there was were a lot of new faces joining the cast, many introducing themselves via a video and then quickly noting how excited they are to be joining the enormously popular series. That video is now available online and ready for you to view and enjoy below.
