Here are some highlights from three years ago, when filming of season one was still in full swing and we were yet to see a single episode of the show.
- A number of roles were cast: Walder Frey (all hail David Bradley), Kevan Lannister (Ian Gelder), Bower Marsh (Brian Fortune), Stiv (Stephen Don), Stableboy (Hugo Culverhouse), and Tobho Mott (Andrew Wilde).
- The full line-up of S1 directors was announced.
- November was the height of filming in Malta, and by the end of the month things started to wind down slowly.
- Some shots of Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo were revealed for the first time.
- A number of production stills were made public.
- The Artisans video series gave us a look at the weapons, and a still of this beautiful assassin’s dagger was revealed too.
- Most importantly HBO aired the first proper teaser trailer, lasting a minute. How excited we were! And so was the press. HBO’s brass were also happy with what they had seen, in this interview.
- Last but not least, we celebrated our 2 year anniversary. Which makes the site 5 years old now … wow. Happy birthday, WiC!
