HBO Releases 2 More Promo Videos Revealing Game of Thrones Season 7 Looks

The other day a short new HBO promo turned up on Twitter providing a brief view of a few Game of Thrones actors in season 7 costume. Today, HBO uploaded that video onto YouTube themselves, in HD, along with two other clips in the same promo series, and happily there are even more Game of Thrones actors visible in the lot now!

Along with shots of characters/actors that we saw in the first video such as Sophie Turner (Sansa), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), we now can see Maisie Williams (Arya) and several more actors in season 7 costuming.

The videos feature a long list of Game of Thrones stars: Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Rory McCann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nathalie Emmanuel, Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie, Kristofer Hivju, Conleth Hill, Liam Cunningham, Isaac Hempstead Wright and Kristian Nairn (the late lamented Hodor *sniff*)

Kit Harington for TheWrap

New interview for TheWrap, you can read more in this link and watch a behind the scenes video.

For years there have been fan theories about Jon Snow’s true parentage, and now it appears that the main theory is true: His mother is Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark’s brother, and his father is Rhaegar Targaryen. Do you have your own theories about what that’s going to mean in the long run?
I do, and I never really like expressing them. If I say what my theory is, then some people will take it as gospel because I play the character. And I also find it unhelpful in playing the character to theorize about it, because he doesn’t think too much about it. If he gets to know that truth at some point, which I hope he will, it will be a really fascinating moment to play.

So are you now waiting and wondering when Jon Snow is going to die for good?
[Laughs] Yeah. But here’s the thing: I feel like one of the safest people on Thrones now. Maybe I shouldn’t say that. He could die next season, but I felt very safe this season. Because if I come back to life in Episode 2, it would be awful storytelling if you kill me in Episode 4. So I felt a bit cocky this season.

Game of Thrones Wants You to Vote for Your Favorite Leader

A little late, but again, I forgot to post this before, but it’s too precious to ignore:

HBO has launched a GOT Party site where Game of Thrones fans can search their conscience and cast their vote for the best person to lead in “the great wars to come.”

The four candidates are Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, Petyr Baelish and they all have running mates. You can read up on each platform here.

People have already compared the show to the election cycle, so perhaps it’s fitting that this is HBO’s answer to political fatigue. As the promo video put it, “we demand strong leaders who stand for those who sacrifice, who know what it means to rise from nothing, who won’t hesitate to break the game.” Wherever you stand, it’s an easy way to fill the Game of Thrones-sized hole in your heart.

GOT Season 7 teaser video and Season 6 Blooper Reel

Just and update with videos from Game of Thrones I forgot to post before:

Game of Thrones is not likely to air on its usual time frame. The seventh leg of the most sought after series might keep its fans in anticipation till July/August next year.

While HBO has made a habit to launch new episodes in spring, the next season will debut much later in summers. In an interview with the makers of the show, David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirmed that the next leg of the series has been pushed back due to the arrival of winter and white walkers, to be precise.

“We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ – and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot. ” the duo revealed at UFC Unfiltered podcast.

As per Digitalspy reports, Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Lena Headey (Cersei), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) all signed up for a seventh season back in late 2014. Apparently, the production for the next season has already begun as many of the actors were reportedly spotted flying to Belfast for the shoot. HBO has also released a teaser video to give insight into the mysterious world of season 7.

Kit Harington enjoyed playing a “psychotic and unpredictable” villain in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

If there’s one thing that Call of Duty has excelled at, it’s attracting Hollywood’s greatest talent to portray some of the most diabolical villains in video game history. Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Lance Henriksen as General Shepherd in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Kevin Gage as Captain Gabriel T. Rorke in Call of Duty: Ghosts are just a few examples of bad guys with big plans and even bigger Hollywood talent attached to them.

This year the tradition continues in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington shedding his good guy persona to portray Admiral Salen Kotch the leader of the Settlement Defense Front. Thing is, there’s always been a shade of grey when it comes to the bad guys of Call of Duty. General Shepherd sought to restore America to a position of authority on a global stage, while Irons was concerned with fighting a war in a more efficient manner without the interference of politicians who had yet to experience the horror of war first-hand.
And then there’s Salen Kotch. A leader for a new frontier beyond Earth, Kotch may just be as mad as a hatter. “You know what excited me about it was the villain. I don’t get to play villains very often, I’ve never played a villain before,” Kit Harington said in a video interview.

That was the first thing that excited me about it, and I came into the room thinking ‘I’ll do this villain thing,; I’ll do this kind of classic Bond villain thing. And as it went on it became a really interesting role. Like all best villains, [he’s] psychotic and unpredictable. I really enjoyed playing psychotic and unpredictable.

My take on Admiral Kotch is that he has an element of the dictator about him. He’s an invading commander, he’s someone who wants to control a whole race of people and he feels that he’s entitled to do that. He’s also not afraid of death. That makes him incredibly terrifying. But i think what was great with Salen Kotch is that he’s a madman. I found that very fun to play.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gets properly psycho (IN SPACE!) on November 4.
