The new behind-the-scenes video features both interviews with cast members and clips from the new series of HBO’s fantasy show, including clips of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen trying to control her dragons and an opulent wedding between King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell’s (Natalie Dormer).
Speaking about the series, executive producer David Benioff said: “Some of the most shocking and mind-blowing scenes of the entire series come at the end of this coming season. This is definitely the most dangerous season for Tyrion [Lannister]. It seems like almost every episode he’s in jeopardy of getting his head removed from his shoulders.”
The show’s fourth series will see an influx of new characters joining the cast, with Sherlock actor Mark Gattis and Gangs Of New York‘s Roger Ashton-Griffiths both joining the production. Meanwhile, the role of Prince Oberyn Martell will be played by Chilean actor Pedro Pascal. Pascal’s CV includes recurring roles on US TV series The Good Wife, Graceland and Red Widow. Prince Oberyn Martell is also known as The Red Viper. In the novels, he’s a lusty, hot-headed character with a quick wit and sharp tongue who’s rumoured to be bisexual.
The show will premiere on Sky Atlantic on April 7 at 9pm, and will be broadcast just 24 hours after it is shown in the US on the HBO network. Game Of Thrones, which is adapted from George RR Martin’s series of fantasy novels A Song Of Ice And Fire, has been a huge hit since premiering in 2011 and has won numerous television gongs including Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Emmys.
