Waiting for Game of Thrones‘ opening night

The highly anticipated third installment of HBO’s Game of Thrones begins on Sunday March 31 at 9 p.m., opening another season of treachery, romance, conspiracies and dragons.

HBO has released a new featurette that touches on why Ciarán’s Mance Rayder was chosen to be the King Beyond The Wall, and introduces fans to the Wildling culture prior to the Season 3 premiere on March 31.

“The Wildlings are the people who live north of the Wall,” George R.R. Martin explains in the featurette. “The name ‘wildling’ is what the people who live south of the Wall call them, and they would reject that name as its connotations of being uncivilized. […] There’s actually quite a lot of Westeros north of the Wall.”

The clip offers a few glimpses at what’s ahead for some of the new and returning characters. Executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss discuss new characters and what’s to come in the third season of their adaptation of A Storm Of Swords, the third book in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.

Ciarán, who plays Mance Rayder, known as the “King Beyond the Wall”, filmed episodes of Game of Thrones in Belfast (the scenes inside the tent) and a remote part of northeast Iceland (the scenes outside the tent).

“So far it seems to be operating fantastically, for people who love fantasy and drama and a bit of butchery on the way,” he says.
