Behind the Scenes: Game of Thrones Fighting and Stunts

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is known for its amazing action and combat sequences. We’ve seen everything from hand-to-hand, woman-on-bear, swords, spears, flaming arrows, exploding wildfire, and dragons!

Here is a great behind-the-scenes look at some upcoming Season 5 fighting. Stunt Coordinator Rowley Irlam talks about coordinating actors, stunt doubles, and extras for some epic battle sequences.

We also get a look at the Sand Snakes, who join the show this season, each with her own fighting implements and style.

Irlam says Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Kristopher Hivju (Tormund) and Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) are great fighters who enjoy doing plenty of their own stunts.

Enjoy the video and let us know which fights you’re most excited to see!
