A new update is up at the Making Game of Thrones blog!
This one gives us another on-set photo, and describes the shooting of a prominent character’s death scene.
A small group is gathered around a body lying on the wet grass. A few feet away Tommy Dunne, the weapons master (and how badly do you want THAT title on your business card) hands a sword to a soldier.
Everybody inches forward a bit. Nobody wants to miss the moment that the blade presses against the jugular and splits the skin. The soldier checks with Tommy, who adjusts his grip slightly and then slides the blade forward. The blood starts to seep out around the wound and as the soldier pulls back, the blood gushes out in a pulsing spray, spurting out and down all over the body. Then the group starts to chat.
Hear Me Roar: Thanks, Cat, hope you can keep it up! Beware of spoilers in the comments, I’m sure they will be ripe with speculations about who they have just killed off.
It has been CONFIRMED that the photo is not directly related to the specific death described, as mentioned in the comments.
