Conan Stevens has a great blog post that talks a bit about his experience so far on Game of Thrones. He talks about his diet and training regimen, meeting Jason Momoa and Rory McCann and lastly talks about his costume fitting and fight choreography. Below is an excerpt:
Yesterday I went in for an armour fitting, this is my first time to see the armour and the costume guys had it set up on a clothes rack so that when I walked into the trailer is was in my face. Awesome. Trying it on I have to say that the costumers know what they are doing and have designed the outfit to suit Gregor Clegane and to make him (me) look terribly intimidating. I thanked the costume guys for doing me such a big favour and getting the “cut” right and using a couple of visual tricks to make me look more intimidating. It really is good working with true professionals who take obvious pride in their good workmanship. And Itell you what having armour made for you is a heck of a lot easier than sewing, stitching, cutting, riveting your own armour (as I did in the Society for Creative Anachronisms).
Winter Is Coming: Be sure to click through and read the whole thing, it is a great read. So cool to get a glimpse of the process that will turn Stevens into GREGOR. Sounds like a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see the end result!
