Winter is Coming Live chat “Maester” Bryan Forrest is a pretty talented dude. When he isn’t fielding your questions during WIC’s official Game of Thrones recap show, Bryan is an actor, stuntman and a blacksmith!
That is why we knew we were lucky to get Bryan to help out on WIC Live. Recently, we decided to start filming a short new segment called “Weapons of Westeros” where Bryan could talk a little bit about some of the weaponry used in Game of Thrones.
After the jump, check out the first edition of “Weapons of Westeros” where Bryan takes a look at the ancestral sword of House Stark.
