Here are some of the highlights of the latest interviews from Game of Thrones cast members and beyond.
- In L.A. Times‘ Hero Complex, Sophie Turner chats about working with Peter Dinklage and Aidan Gillen and reveals she’s begun shooting new episodes. She drops this interesting hint about Sansa in season five: “I can’t reveal much, but there’s a big change for her this season and there’s a few familiar faces around.” Could this have something to do with the recent filming in Sallagh Braes, with two other cast members filming near Knights of the Vale?
- One of Game of Thrones‘ newest cast members, Rosabell Laurenti-Sellers, sat down with La Repubblica, an Italian publication, to talk about getting the role of Tyene Sand. Rosabell says before joining the show, she was unfamiliar with it, but realized it was a phenomenon by the reactions of other people. She made an initial audition video with her character trying to kill someone, and received a callback before winning the role. She says she’s trained extensively with martial arts and swords to play the part, and talks frankly about her nudity contract with the show and Tyene’s desire to avenge her father Oberyn.

- Isaac Hempstead-Wright says in this Collider interview, while discussing his new film The Boxtrolls, that in the next Game of Thrones season for his character Bran, “There’s certainly some more action stuff, rather than sitting down in various forests, all over Westeros.”
- In non-cast press, Community‘s Jim Rash says he’d like to see a Game of Thrones-themed episode of his show. “Maybe we could work that world [into Community],” Rash said, in an interview with TVLine. “There’s got to be something you can battle for — what’s the throne between [rival schools] City College and Greendale?” Someone, please make this happen.
- Sean Bean talks to HuffPostLive and is questioned about fan theories that Ned Stark isn’t Jon Snow’s father. Bean responds that he doesn’t really know, it’s just that he’s “very much doubting that he’s my son,” and that he has his suspicions.
- Living Language is bringing Dothraki courses to fans in October. The course involves a book and a pronunciation CD that cost $20. There will also be an app, and an online course that cost $30.
