We’ve updated our Behind the Scenes gallery with 44 new images (starting here), taken from the Buster Reeves Artisan’s video released at Making Game of Thrones a couple of weeks ago. Lots of details of fight scenes, but the image we’re highlighting here depicts a character from the books that has not previously been named: Dareon, the singer’s apprentice sent to the Wall for allegedly raping Lord Rowan’s daughter. He’s the fellow on the left.
The actor is probably more along the lines of a featured extra, and may not even have any lines, but I saw him being addressed as Dareon while I was watching some of the filming at Magheramorne (if anyone knows the actor’s full name, do let us know!. I suspect some of the other Night’s Watch recruits in the background may also be given names after some of the other recruits from the novel, such as Cuger and Halder.
In other news, expect our exclusive set reports from my visit to Belfast in October—which we started but then had to postpone to hash out some details—to resume later this month, with some exclusive pictures and details that we haven’t yet had the opportunity to report.
