‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4: Go Behind the Scenes of Episode 9, “Castle Black”!
Though ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4 still feels like a lifetime away, we know that the ninth episode of any given season has historically proven the most jaw-dropping of them all. We have an idea of what the ninth episode of season 4 will involve, but check out an early sneak peek with a behind-the-scenes photo of “Castle Black!”
An Empire writer tweeted that the episode’s director Neil Marshall has posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the stunt team involved in the episode, showing a large group of Night’s Watch rangers and Wildlings gathered on The Wall. It remains to be seen if the episode will continue to bear the title “Castle Black,” though it would seem to confirm that the ninth episode of the season will follow the Wildling attack on the wall, much as when Marshall previously helmed season 2’s Kings Landing-centric “Blackwater.”
While we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Banshee‘ star Joseph Gatt will appear in a role speculated to be that of Wildling chieftan Styr, Magnar of Thenn, while ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
Previous season characters Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickie), Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), Rorge (Andy Beckwith) and Janos Slynt (Dominic Carter) will likely all return, according to reports.
