Tag: blinkboxblinkbox @ 3:02 pm

LONDON, Friday 19 July 2013: With the release of Game of Thrones’ Third Season this week at blinkbox, many fans of the epic HBO series were tucked away at home last night, bingeing on episode after episode. But for a few lucky customers, the Tower of London was the place to be as blinkbox celebrated Season Three’s launch with an exclusive red carpet event.

In attendance were celebs, fans and journalists; but the big surprise of the evening were GoT stars Maisie Williams and Joe Dempsie!

Better known to viewers as Arya and Gendry, they were kind enough to talk about their experiences working on Season 3. Maisie talked about working with Charles Dance (who apparently goes by ‘Charlie’); Joe revealed the secret behind how they shot a scene in which he looked to be covered in leeches (they just used real leeches); and both of them gave their best Hodor impressions!

Here’s a little taste of the event from our friends at ITN:

Along with celebrity guests and our blinkbox super-fans, Maisie and Joe jumped at the opportunity to get their picture taken with our 40-ft dragon skull!




In between speaking to a packed audience and learning her lines for Season 4, The Queen of  All Social Media also took the opportunity to Vine her backstage experience:

So go ahead and obey them: Game of Thrones Season 3 is now available on blinkbox priced at £17.99 (SD) and £23.99 (HD).
