First Mance Rayder and Jon Snow shot from the tent scene - captured from the writing vlog featurette posted by HBO today.
Watch the video below, which also includes shots with Blackfish Tully, Catelyn and some King’s Landing scenes:
You can read an interview with Ciaran Hinds where he references filming the tent scene and the rest of his outdoor scenes [spoiler alert - he says how long it took!] - on WSJ.
What a great casting announcement today by the Game of Thrones TV program - they’ve cast veteran actor Ciaran Hinds to play Mance Rayder! Since this is one of the more popular characters, a bigger name certainly means the character would be given more screen time.

This character is certainly intriguing if not for his unique set of morals, then at least for his amazing one liners and willingness to challenge everything he encounters. Even though it is a younger character, a more experienced actor is quite befitting. What do you think of this casting? What is your favorite appearance from his impressive resume? Do you love the Mayor of Casterbridge, the famous period drama, where Ciaran Hinds’ had the title role, or another piece?
Either way, I am excited and sure most people are. Now I can commence watching this program with more interest!
