Axechucker (then better know as Fire and Blood, or FaBio for short) and I reported from the first TitanCon in Belfast, dedicated to celebrating season one of Game of Thrones and teasing season two hints out of the actors present. Oh, and lots of merrymaking, too.
The shoot in Dubrovnik was still going on, and we got hints of an expanded Qarth storyline for season two. We learned that the primary Iceland shooting location would be the Vatnajökull glacier area.
Casting decisions were still being made and announced, most notable we got Rose Leslie as our Ygritte in October. Also, Simon Armstrong was cast as Halfhand, John Stahl as Rickard Karstark, and Nicholas Blane as the Spice King.
The winners of S1 awards you guys voted for were announced, and Natalia Tena as one of them thanked our Game of Thrones community in a video message. Miltos Yerolemou did that at TitanCon itself. Speaking of awesome!
