The wait is finally over… we are a mere 60 hours away from the Season 3 premiere of GAME OF THRONES on Sunday! To satisfy all of my fellow GAME OF THRONES fans out there, I found a couple of links this morning that are very much worth checking out. If you are not yet a GAME OF THRONES fan, it’s totally worth calling your cable provider and getting one of their 3-month free subscriptions to HBO. It’s not difficult to catch up as the seasons are relatively short.
So first we have a great article on 21 Obscure Facts about GAME OF THRONES. Great job to whoever compiled this… there’s some truly surprising stuff in here. For instance, did you know that Grand Maester Pycelle is played by JULIAN GLOVER better known to me as General Veers from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and Walter Donovan from INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE (whom I didn’t even realize was even the same actor until right now)?? I had no idea with that fluffy beard of his.
Which brings me to my second link of the day… All the GAME OF THRONES actors without facial hair. Before you criticize me for not posting ‘links of women’ like MIDWEST MO does on a daily basis, there are some huge differences that one might not expect. Might I recommend that Samwell just keeps the facial hair year-round?
Last but not least for you spoiler-lovers, here is a very detailed breakdown of possible plot-points in comparison to the source material book STORM OF SWORDS. Based on this, it’s going to be a doozy of a season for sure.
