While HBO has been doing better recently with getting more and more of the cast announced, we are still pretty in the dark as to who will be behind the lens for season two of Game of Thrones. Alan Taylor has been the only director to be officially announced; he will be directing four episodes this season. David Petrarca was revealed in an actor’s CV as a director working on Thrones, but that has yet to be confirmed by HBO.
Now comes another unofficial reveal, this time via an article at the Brandon Sun (thanks to OhDanyBoy for the find). The article is a preview of the upcoming Gemini Awards, Canada’s version of the Emmys, where they interview Canadian TV director Jeremy Podeswa who reveals that he will be unable to attend the event due to him working on Game of Thrones. Podeswa is a veteran, Emmy-nominated TV director who has worked on many shows in his career including The Tudors, Rubicon and The Borgias. As with all the other Thrones‘ directors, Podeswa is no stranger to HBO having directed eps of Six Feet Under, Carnivàle, Deadwood, Rome, The Pacific, Boardwalk Emprire and True Blood.
Winter Is Coming: Assuming this is true, Podeswa may be the third and final director added for season two. We know Taylor will direct four episodes, so I’m going to guess the remaining six will be split between Petrarca and Podeswa. Hopefully an announcement will be made soon, to make this whole thing official.
