Cast and crew of the HBO series would like viewers to know that this is an epic fantasy with lots of twists and turns due to the number of characters and their complexity.
In the past few weeks, HBO has been introducing its new series "Game of Thrones" in a faster pace, and over the weekend, it released a new trailer as well as a behind-the-scene video. The trailer gives away a startling scene where Sean Bean's Eddard Stark beheads a runaway with his sword in the presence of a child.
"Game of Thrones" is based on epic fantasy series of the same name by George R. R. Martin. It is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. And it mainly chronicles battle for the throne of King Robert Baratheon of Westeros.
The cast includes Mark Addy as Robert Baratheon, Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister.
The series is shot in Belfast and would premiere in 2011.
