With the release of the third season of Game of Thrones on DVD and Blu-ray approaching fast, weâre getting some nifty making-of videos. Including this one. If youâre into special effects and direwolves, this oneâs for you.
This video -- courtesy of The Wall Street Journal --Â gives us a great sneak peek at Jon Snowâs (Kit Harington) escape from the wildlings in the season-three episode âThe Rains of Castamereâ (which featured the infamous Red Wedding), and how they filmed with green screen and real wolves.
Have a look:
We really liked the guy flailing about in the rain and mud around the 20-second mark, pretending to get his throat ripped by a direwolf. Nice acting chops there. Also: Jon Snowâs awesome hair clip. Just sayinâ.
Are you impressed by how they achieved the special effects for this scene? Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 6. You can get your hands on the season-three DVD and Blu-ray sets on Feb. 18.
