Making Game of Thrones is back

Bryan Cogman’s increased production responsibilities (not to mention his new baby) has led to him passing the mantle of official on-set blogger to Cat Taylor. Taylor is the assistant to producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, which means she should have some fun stories to share. Here is a snippet from her first post:??I’ll take you behind the scenes of the filming of Season 2, and while there are many secrets I have to keep and a lot of unexpected twists to come, there’s still a lot for us to talk about: One King is dead, but many rise. Cersei plots while Joffrey rules. The Hound is hunting. Jon is North of the Wall, Robb is at war and Arya is nowhere to be found. Littlefinger has a plan that no one yet comprehends. And let’s not even get started on Tyrion …??The shooting has begun with so many people in different locations that we’ve assembled two crews to get the job done (and given them the requisite codenames “Wolf” and “Dragon”). In the last few weeks a charter flight left with the Wolf crew, costumes and props packed to the wing tips en route to sunnier shores. Finding a commercial flight to Westeros is harder than you’d guess! The offices here were weirdly quiet as the Dragon unit got ready for three weeks of night shoots and everyone waited to see what would happen at the Emmys …??Not only did we get our first on-set blog post, but HBO published the first official behind the scenes photo from filming season two!??Winter Is Coming: So excited that we will be getting production updates once again from MGoT! Looking forward to hearing more anecdotes from set. And, of course, to some more production photos!Access Hollywood nabbed two interviews on the occasion of the Scream Awards ceremony last Saturday (airing tonight at 9PM EST on SPIKE TV). It’s great that both Lena Headey and Sean Bean were able to attend. First off, a video interview with both of them, after the win, sharing their impressions as well as thoughts on Lena’s good friend Peter Dinklage.??Even more interesting bits appear in this interview with Lena, where she discusses Cersei in season two and her character’s relationships towards others, most notably Tyrion and Joffrey. Here are some snippets that I liked most:??”I think she can’t admit it to anybody,” the actress continued, referring to Cersei’s upcoming Season 2 predicament. “She’s dying to ask for help, and she never will.” / We’re on our last few episodes,” she said of progress on Season 2. “Joffrey is becoming more trouble.” / “Jack Gleason is adorable, and just so good at being a little sh**,” she laughed, complimenting her co-star. “He’s so good at being terrible.” / “This season there’s a big arc with Cersei and Tyrion’s relationship, which is really interesting, because it’s love-hate there, totally,” she told Access. “It’s been really fun filming all those scenes, and there’s just a lot more drama this year.”??Two more videos after the break, including one where Sean Bean speculates on possibly returning for more filming…Speaking of Jan 10th, it looks like HBO plans to release a promo disc for Game of Thrones on that date. This will likely include the first episode only and usually gets given away by retailers for free with the purchase of any other HBO series.??Winter Is Coming: So March it is then. A bit of a wait, but at least watching all the special features will help pass that last month until season two!
