Canadian journalist Chris Lackner has a terrific report from what I believe to be an international press junket to Belfast in November or perhaps October. Some excellent quotes from the producers, as well as Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, and Kit Harrington as they discuss their experiences on the show and in filming the second season.
The best quote of the article comes from Charles Dance:
“You saw all this violence and all this rumpy pumpy - and it’s all doggie fashion,’’ the venerable British actor says with an incredulous laugh, in between takes on set, while decked in silks and armour. “And I said to (the executive producers) . . . ‘Obviously, the missionary position didn’t come into vogue for a few years yet in the Seven Kingdoms. They said, `We wanted it to be kind of animalistic, Charles,’ and I said, ‘Well, it’s certainly that.’‘’
