A new Making Game of Thrones post from Cat Taylor details some of the filming that occurred on the set of Mance Rayder’s camp in Iceland.
It’s day five, and all of Mance’s camp, not just the inside of his tent, is laid out before us. The camp is the product of months of work from the art department and weeks of construction by the local crew. It is spectacular.
Walking from base, the edge of the camp is only a few feet away, but the site is like a fantasy. If you can ignore the cameras and crew, you might believe you were actually inside a wilding village. Our extras (the men all with fabulous beards of course) work in between the huts or huddle around fires, and even children run through the snow to greet a visitor from the Wall, in their own special way.
It’s also a day when our friend Ian Whyte, who plays the White Walker, is back in a different role, one we haven’t seen before. He’s got some awfully big shoes to fill for this particular scene.
More at the source. And remember, these posts are delayed. All of this filming took place over two months ago.
Winter Is Coming: Ian Whyte played the White Walker in the first season and Gregor in the second season. It sounds like he is going to add another role to his list. I wonder what it could be?
