Extra in Westeros

And here's another "Making of... " video with HBO, with more behind-the-scenes looks at how GAME OF THRONES is made.

This one is on life as an extra.



I was an extra myself once... well, twice... on two episodes on BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, back in the dawn of time. And on the GAME OF THRONES pilot as well, though my scene wound up on the cutting room floor. And I had such big balls too... and a HUGE, ah, hat...

There, there ....*offers chocolate* Maybe you'll be in the 'outtakes' section of the dvd-set!

Did you catch the staff member wearing the 'Fire and Blood' t-shirt?!

It's at 0:47.

Even a particularly well endowed froggy has got to be feeling a little inadequate in a show with Hodor.

How exactly does one get to do this sort of thing? Is it a matter of "right time, right place" or is there a sign-up somewhere? The quote that people would do this "for love of the series/books" is pretty much right on and the chance to be a part of something would be amazing.

amazing
Pretty amazing to actually think about how much work goes into this and how many people are required to pull it off. Easily glanced over until you are reminded with something like this. Their production timeframe is then appreciated that much more...

It's actually incredible that HBO churns these out as fast as they do!

You could totally show up in a cameo role each season, a la Hitchcock. Although I would be happy if you played Wyman Manderly, he's such a badass.

jousting
since you collect "knightly" items, you might want to check out
FULL METAL JOUSTING, a new show on the History Channel. These guys are certifiable! You can read about jousts, but NOTHING prepares you for the visual reality, and the sound, of it. AMAZING! Gives you anew respect for the knights of old.

Were you one of those extras who wanted an upgrade?! ("Seriously...I have this idea for a fantasy book/tv series - wrote a role for myself in it mind you.."). Can't get the video to play though..hmm.

I'd do it for no pay and bad food in GOT anytime:)

Nothing shows up on screen except white box. Is that snow over the wall? :-)

for GRRM
I was wondering, what does it feel like to have so many people working so hard to make your world come to life? From the executives and the stars to the extras and all the crew it takes to put this show together I cant imagine what that would be like to see all those people dedicated to something that was my creation.

You were just an EXTRA?!?! You need to be in a more prominent role, as author of the original work. Was not Stephen King cast as Teddy Weizak in the miniseries The Stand?

He was, but it was still just a cameo. But yes, proper cameo role for GRRM! (Nothing more than a cameo, though - he's got books to write!)

Indeed he was. He even got a bear hug from Gary Sinise near the end.

Would be neato to be an extra in Littlefinger's brothel for a Ros scene.

Big balls and a huge hat, eh? If I didn't know better I would think you were describing Tycho Nestoris.

PLEASE VISIT OUR WOUNDED WARRIORS AND US SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN STATIONED AT RAMSTEIN AFB &LRMCGERMANY
This is a long-shot-request, but hey you never know until you ask! I am a military spouse of Air Force service member currently stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, and right up the road is Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for us families, active duty members, and wounded warriors. I currently work at the LARGEST BOOKSTORE IN THE WORLD that serves the US Military community (Army Air Force Exchange Services). We can NEVER keep your books in stock no matter how many we order! Your popularity is overwhelming over here in such a positve way! Anything to keep our minds off war, hate, and the challenges associated with the military way of life is always needed!! Any chance in hell would you be willing to visit Ramstein AFB for an author signing, and/or meet and greet our US soldiers, wounded warriors, and family members? That would mean so much to all of us over here if you could. If so, I can get you in touch with the right folks here that could make it happen.

Sincerely,
Tiffany Schoen (HUGE FAN)
