15 Minute Featurette to air on Febuary 9th on HBO before “True Detective”

HBO sent a message to Winteriscoming.net concerning this:

Your readers may be interested to know that the 15-minute presentation GAME OF THRONES ICE AND FIRE: A FORESHADOWING will debut SUNDAY, FEB. 9 at 8:45 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, just before the debut of a new episode of “True Detective.” Offering a look back and a look forward to the fourth season of the hit HBO series, the show features clips from upcoming episodes, behind-the-scenes-footage, interviews with talent, and cast members’ answers to questions posed by fans.

This should be a nice treat. I wonder what they could be showing. I can never get enough of all the Behind-The-Scenes footage that they publish. Perhaps some new excerpts from Season 4 although we have gotten plenty of those already. Make sure to tune into HBO on Febuary 9th for 15 minutes of gold!

Michael Huisman to return as a Season Regular

Michael Huisman recently cast as Daario Naharis, has signed to be returning as

Michael Huismana regular actor in the upcoming seasons  of A Game of Thrones. The entertainment blog, TV Line has been informed that the Game of thrones producers have signed him on for Season 5 and beyond. His acting role will be raised from an actor to a season regular

This is good news because, as his character has already been recast once, nailing him down for the next two or more seasons will help prevent recasts occurring later on in the shows life.

Michael Huisman has acted in many TV series before such as “Nashville” and “Treme”. He is also acting in an upcoming movie called “American Dream”

New interview with Jack Gleeson

Jack Gleeson came to University College Dublin, and settled for a rare 30 minute Question and Answer session. He talks about thinking if he is going to continue acting after his time in Game of Thrones is over. He also mentions that he hasn’t met Mark Gatiss, so most likely, we won’t see Tycho Nestoris coming to Kings Landing.

Here is a recording of the interview:

Interesting dynamic the show is introducing. I wonder what they are going to do with it. Comment below on what you think is likely to happen!

Tommen has been recast as Dean Charles Chapman

According to sources at Winteriscoming.net, the actor playing Tomenn Bartheon has been replaced by Dean Charles Chapman.

15 year-old Dean has been in a few films of note in his acting career including in The White Queen, The Revolting World of Stanley Brown and also in the upcoming film Before I Go to Sleep. Dean has actually been in Game of thrones before, playing one of the two Lannister boys that Rickard Karstark gets axed for murdering.

It is an interesting turn of events, but likely most people watching the show will remember him at all considering he has been missing from the show for a season.

We still await HBO’s conformation of this recast

This scene first appeared via the SDCC panel they had last month. Now HBO released it themselves on the Game of thrones YouTube Channel.

This scene along with other deleted scenes will feature on the the soon to be released on the Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-Ray
