Take off your pants before watching this new video preview for HBO's Game of Thrones, because you'll just pee in them otherwise. The network has released a 10-minute, behind-the-scenes look at the epic fantasy series that features new footage, new interviews, and a whole lot of Tyrion Lannister.
Winter is coming, gentlemen. Bundle up. (And don't forget to hit the "full screen view" button.)
A few notes on characters I'm seeing for the first time in this video:
... Aidan Gillen as Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish
I always pictured Littlefinger as more smarmy, but I'm a huge fan of Gillen's work thanks to his role as Tommy Carcetti in The Wire. He should be able to nail the role no problem.
... Harry Lloyd as Viserys Targaryen
Perfecto! I hate Viserys, and he looks exactly like someone I can hate.
... Maisie Williams as Arya Stark (at 3:58 in the video)
My lord, she looks so adorable, it will be interesting to see her grow into her character.
What do you think of the look of Game of Thrones so far, and which characters do you think were cast the best?
Game of Thrones debuts next April on HBO.
