Tywin

One of the interesting and fun things I love about fandoms is the periods between seasons and episodes when fans gather to discuss the series details, spin and speculate about why things happened, and what might possibly happen next. George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones has loads of fan interaction from both the book readers and the HBO television series watchers, often those fans being one and the same. Now we’d like to present you with one fan’s theory, feel free to insert “crazy” or the adjective of your choice in there, about everyone’s favorite wine drinking and whoring Lannister, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Prepare to have your Game of Thrones mind blown! (more…)

Filming is going strong for Game of Thrones‘ Season 3. We reported previously on their excursions in Croatia which ended this weekend with the cast and crew moving on to Morocco. In fact, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) posted a message to her official Facebook page yesterday saying she was on her way, and it’s been reported Ian Glenn (Jorah Mormont) is already there. Stay tuned for what will likely be many, many set photos of the Khaleesi and the first of Queensguard over the coming weeks.

For now we’ve got the last of the set reports and photos from Croatia and Northern Ireland. Here’s a scene being filmed between Charles Dance (Tywin) and Julian Glover (Pycelle) and it’s an interesting one because nothing like it occurs in the book. At least not that we see– err, read, because neither of their characters serve as a P.O.V. in A Storm of Swords. Note, obviously that shot above is from them lounging on set, wouldn’t expect Pycelle to be showing that kind of leg on the show.

Feel free to click ’em to soak in all the details. Basically it looks like a discussion between the two, probably over some realm-ly concerns, while Tywin fishes or something. Such the outdoors-man. Honestly, I cannot wait for any scene Tywin’s involved with because Dance just nails it every time. Not that Glover isn’t rockin’ it as Pycelle, but those scenes between Tywin and Arya last season were a treat!

What we’ve got next is super spoilery. STOP NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T READ A STORM OF SWORDS. Or, if ya just don’t give a shit. Then I ask, why are you here?
