The latest production video for HBO’s Game of Thrones goes north of the Wall to the icy untamed lands of the wildings and the Others — or in our world, Iceland, where part of the second season of the hit fantasy series is being filmed.
The three-minute video features interviews with the cast (including star Kit Harington), Executive Producer David Benioff and Thor 2 director Alan Taylor about the breathtaking landscapes, and bone-chilling conditions, the country has to offer.
“The biggest challenge of course is we’re here in Iceland during the winter so the days are about four and a half hours long,” Taylor says. “[…] So the sun barely makes it up above the horizon then goes back down almost immediately. The great thing is that the days are short but the light is beautiful for that whole period.”
Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
