The official Game of Thrones YouTube page has just released a quick video on the making of the Children of the Forest from the Season 4 finale “The Children“. If you’ll remember all the way back to the final episode of Season 4, the introduction of The Child of the Forest, caused all sorts of controversy between the Sullied and the Unsullied, because she used fire balls to rescue Bran, Hodor, and Meera.
Watch the video after the jump.
First off, I find it highly interesting that the actress is referred to as The Child of the Forest and not just plain, Leaf. According to IMDb, the actress is Octavia Selena Alexandru, and she is set to reprise the role of Leaf, in Episode 1 of Season 5, “The Wars to Come“.
Personally, I was very happy with how they brought Leaf to the screen. Magical fire-missiles aside, that scene where Jojen gets shanked by the wight or skeleton or whatever you want to call it, is still hard to watch. RIP Jojen, at least you wont end up as paste…on the show, that is.
