New ‘Game of Thrones’ Featurettes – Get to Know Stannis Baratheon & the Houses of Westeros (House Stark Video Gives us Direwolves!)
That April 1st premiere date is getting ever closer! In anticipation HBO has been releasing tons of behind-the-scenes footage as well as videos about the characters and places we’ll be getting know in season two of Game of Thrones. We bastards, and I’m guessing most of you, simply can’t get enough!
WE NEEDZ MOAR, HBO, MOAR!
But here’s what we’ve got for you today, a new character profile for Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), brother to the late King Robert and wannabe-King Renly. Stannis is one tough dude, and he’s not easy to love, or even like. I’m really interested to see what audiences, particularly those who haven’t read the books, think of him.
In addition to getting to know Stannis, they’ve also released these profiles for each of the most important Houses in Westeros: Baratheon, Greyjoy, Lannister, Stark, and Targaryen. Which House are you rooting for? I’m Targaryen all the way. FIRE AND BLOOD, BABY! Plus, come on, DRAGONS! How can anyone else compete?
Important to note, the House Stark videos gives us our first good look at the CGI direwolves. Direwolves are cool, but they still come second to dragons.
