Mine is Tommen exiting.

Quite powerful and in stark contrast to most of the series, the camera isnt moving or only slowly and no music.

His death feels like the tipping for Cersei to go from cunning to crazy. Or was she always crazy?


Tell me which scene will you remember, and why!

Ned Stark's death. Up until that point it's all fun and games, and if you hadn't had it spoiled, you never knew what the show was capable of.

Or was she always crazy?

Each step of her prophecy coming true was a big step towards craziness. It'd be hard not to go crazy if you knew your life would end in misery and you were powerless to stop it.

The casual, cruel murder of Mycah (the "Butcher's Boy") by the Hound. That was a kick in the gut and made the setting more believable.

I agree with Neds death and the Red Wedding, definitely something that doesnt leave you. And I guess Neds death also sets the frame for the whole series!

Mycah I dont remember at all, just one of many to me. Have you just watched that recently, knyte?


As for the prophecy, I always thought Cersei was unphased by that. But maybe I am wrong.

The trial with Tyrion, that was chilling

Though just for being epic, the scene with white walkers attacking hardhome. Epic as hell when the white walkers were still intriguing and mysterious

Tywin's first scene skinning the Stag, his back and forths with Jaime were brilliant, perfectly demonstrating their relationship while being entertaining as ya can get.

Red viper fighting the Mountain, what a shocker, had to rewatch it to get the head crushing splats out o me head and see them for the effects they were, chilling stuff!

Jaime, Theon and Cersei were the best actors imo...

Great series, been an extra on it the last 4 years (since its been subpar, not my fault I swear)

@linberson, nope I watched when it came out. It was episode one or two, maybe the second death on the show after that deserter who got executed by Ned Stark (also an innocent victim of circumstance).

Perhaps you remember it from Arya's perspective: She practices swordplay with the Butcher's Boy when Joffrey buts in and threatens to slice his face. Arya prevents that but to no avail when the Hound rides Mycah down as punishment.

A minor character moment for Arya too, there, perhaps foreshadowing how the Lannisters would strip her of her childhood.

I was about 15 different costume changes, so most of them. The trick is never to get seen on camera, then you dont get cut for continuity, its a job that rewards laziness thank christ! Sittin in a tent gettin fed 3 meals a day, not bad work. Usually get a few months p/year. Can be boring as hell if you just sit around, you have to make your own fun :) (or read a book)

That Mycah scene sets the tone for the series perfectly for sure! 'He ran, not very fast', he killed him, then replaced him as Arya's fighting pal, the real butcher.

Haha, nice way to play the system! Did you get to meet or work with any of the main cast members? Any memorable stories?

Talked to a few, just a few words, nothing interesting. I wasn't a fanboy of the actors tbh, they were plenty of fanboys/girls around, enough to put you off. I was into the books years before the series, so i was mad into that aspect, finding out what hadnt been spoiled etc. They're pretty strict about the NDA's (non disclosure agreements) too, litigation and all that so I won't say much to give myself away. The glamour wears off pretty fast when yer sitting around in stinking gear in a tent with 100 other stinkers. I love it, its easy work if you know what you're in for (loads don't). The good stories are just pranking doing stupid shit to pass the time, anything you'd normally do.

Just thought, I zombie-snarled in Kit Harrington's face passing by after filming while other extras gave him a nervous 'Hi, hey'. I was dressed as a wight and we were trying to kill him in the scene we were filming so I thought it was appropriate, he got a bit of a shock though. I thought I was dead cool...

It’s so hard to choose! If we’re going by cinematic brilliance, I have to say that the Sept of Baelor scene has got to be one of the best in television history, mostly due to Ramin Djawadi’s brilliant score. As for greatest dialogue scenes, Tyrion’s trial takes the cake, but Honorable mentions go to Tywin + Arya and the “Chaos is a Ladder” speech. As for funniest moments, Olenna with basically anyone else, most especially Tywin. If only they could have been the power couple to rule the Seven Kingdoms, but alas, it was not to be.

When she tells the guards to take a step back and turn around, I desperately want her next command to be "Now do the hokey pokey"

Or "I didn't say 'Simon says'" with the same mannerisms as when she sipped wine after the Sept of Baelor explosion.

Peak pre-season 4 GoT would've had Cersei die with that same expression instead of scared and hugging Jaime.

Stannis's demise: He's burned his lovable cutie pie daughter at the stake, his religious zealot wife kills herself (even she has a heart), his armies piss off, and Melisandre then abandons him too. This succession of events perfectly walks that fine line of being kinda funny, without winking at the audience (a la Tyrions not mentioned in ASOIAF book at end - stupid) taking you out of the story. Brienne's final slash looked stupid the way they filmed it, but the lead up was awesome...
