‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3 Production Video Teases New Characters

Game Of Thrones Blackwater Season 2 Episode 9

HBO offered up an early Christmas present to Game of Thrones fans before last night’s Boardwalk Empire finale in the form of a production video teasing the highly anticipated third season. The video is low on spoilers, but it does feature commentary on the filming experience and the series in general from the likes of Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Maisie Williams (Arya), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Richard Madden (Robb). Executive producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are on hand as well, with Benioff teasing, “This is the season Dan and I have been anticipating from the very beginning.”

Despite divulging few secrets, the video does offer up a first look at a few of the many new characters who will be popping up in season three. Meera (Ellie Kendrick) and Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) are prominently featured, but fan favorites The Queen of Thorns Olenna Tyrell (Dianna Rigg), and the fabled King-Beyond-The-Wall Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hands), are present as well. You can watch the full two-minute video below.

Season three of Game of Thrones is set to premiere Sunday, March, 31st on HBO.
