And yes, that shot of the Night's Watch walking across the ice was beautiful.

By the way, have there been any info on who's playing Qhorin Halfhand?

Jesus Christ that was fantastic, the song was great as well.  I loved it just as much as Stannis Baratheon’s The Cold Winds Are Rising teaser. :)

I haven't seen this around, so here's our first (?) look at Nonso Anozie as Xaro Xhoan Daxos.

What character do you play on the second season of Game of Thrones?

I play Xaro Xhoan Daxos and he’s an interesting character. He’s the prince of Qarth. Qarth is a new land which is further to the east of Dothraki, the host kingdom, where Daenerys was married to Khal Drogo. She’s moving on to see if she can find a way to build an army and move to take over her “rightful seat” in Westeros. She bumps into my character and a lot of new interesting things are going to happen. I can’t say legally say too much about it but it’s going to be eye-opening and exciting.

Had you read the books?

I read the first book, and for the second one, it’s so different from it. I started reading it and there are a few changes in the beginning. In the TV series, when Qarth is concerned, it’s action packed, and in the book, the land of Qarth is quite boring. It’s very mundane. It’s packed with days of Daenerys observing the splendor and the wonder of Qarth and gold and majesty and beautiful people and ornate statues. There TV version is different from that. There’s a lot more subtext and secrets and moves going on. It is the game of thrones and everybody as an agenda, including my character. It’s really interesting stuff.

You worked with Jason Momoa in 2011′s ‘Conan the Barbarian’ and he appeared in the first season of GOT as Khal Drogo. Have you spoken to him about the series?

Yes. We went back for some reshoots on ‘Conan’ before I got the job and he was going on and on about it and when I saw him again and I told him I was in ‘Game of Thrones,’ he was ecstatic. He’s really, really sad that he left the show, because I have to say and it sounds cliché because everybody says it, but working for HBO is not like any other TV company I worked with before. This show is like filming a feature film. It’s an amazing experience.
