In a recent live interview with Ben Mortimer of BleedingCool.com, Natalia Tena gushed about her role as Osha in Game of Thrones (among many other things).
Here’s Part Two of the interview in which she discusses the role and Belfast filming. Game of Thrones talk starts at the 5:15 mark.
For those of you curious about the entire interview, both parts can be found HERE.
Probably the most interesting part is not only how certain she is that there will be a second “series” (season, as the Gude pointed out in an earlier thread)… but that she expects filming to start again in the spring. It also seems as though they brought Tena back to film one extra scene that they had apparently written just for her.
Fire And Blood: Lovin’ it! It’s no secret Natalia blew the producers–and GRRM–away in her audition. Clearly they are heading in a slightly different (read: charismatic) direction for Osha. And I’m more than fine with it. Tena brings a already-loyal following of Harry Potter fans with her, and Osha’s unattractiveness was never really a plot point. She just needs to be tomboy-tough. If she can bring the earthy sort of madness she displays in interviews to the role, I think we’re in for a treat.
