From Yahoo!:

I’ve got great hopes for this season. I’ve read it and it’s fantastic,” he told us. “You’re going to love it. It’s my favorite so far.”

One major new character addition this season is bad boy Oberyn Martell, aka the Red Viper. It was announced last month that Chilean actor Pedro Pascal had nabbed the role, which sparked controversy among fans.

“Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin defended the decision; and Harington, too, fully has faith in the casting.

“I haven’t seen him in costume yet, but I have had dinner with him a couple of times. He’s a lovely man,” Harington explained. “He’s going to be brilliant. It’s an amazing character and quite the story line. You’re going to enjoy it. [Fans] won’t be disappointed, Pedro Pascal is the man for the job.”

While Harington was tight-lipped on what Jon Snow is going to be up to next year, he revealed where he would like his character to go.

“Well I do know where he goes…” Harington teased. “I’d like him to go and rescue Arya, but I don’t think he’s going to be able to. I’d like to see him collect Sansa, Arya, and Bran and just take them to the wall or something.”

Rose Leslie reveals Ygritte and Jon Snow’s Relationship ‘Heats Up’ in Season 3

In one week season 3 will finally be here and like us, many of you are probably looking forward to seeing how Ygritte and Jon Snow’s relationship is going to evolve.  Rose Leslie, who portrays Ygritte, has given a few hints as to how things are going to play out between the two in a recent interview with The Huffington Post!

HuffPost TV: What can viewers expect from Ygritte in Season 3?
Rose Leslie: We see a lot more of Ygritte in Season 3, and we see the relationship between her and Jon Snow develop on their journey. It’s far more intense. We also see her boundaries break down; she’s an incredibly strong and powerful woman, but she does soften a little bit when it comes to Jon Snow.

Speaking of Jon Snow, are things going to heat up between her and Jon this season?
You do see the relationship between the two of them flourish, so to speak. But without giving away too much to spoil it, yes — it does heat up.

How did your real relationship with Kit play into things on set?
Kit is a very good friend of mine and we got on well. We have similar senses of humour. The fact that we are friends off-set really does help with our characters on-screen and we are able to bounce off each other more fluidly. But also it’s incredible to be able to work off of someone like Kit because he is so talented and he allows you to play. That is a lovely thing.

In Season 2 we see Ygritte tease and toy with Jon Snow quite a bit. What does Ygritte really think of him?
At the end of Season 2 she’s ultimately incredibly intrigued by this man. I don’t think she’s ever come across anybody like Jon Snow in her life. He’s a bit opposite of the wildling men she had been growing up with and that she’s used to. She’s a little bit dumbfounded by Jon Snow but she wants to try and understand him. She’s also a bit baffled; he takes himself so seriously, and she derives a lot of pleasure in antagonizing him and teasing him the way she does. She has a lot of fun in that respect. Ultimately, I think she can’t quite put her finger on it, but there’s that element of ‘I want to get to know you better because you are such an enigma to me.’

Add Your Voice To The Night Watch’s Oath

Now’s your chance to take the Night’s Watch Oath!  Head on over to MyWatchBegins.com where you can record your oath.  See below for some helpful step by step instructions on how this process works, courtesy of The Mary Sue.

Take The Oath

From The Mary Sue:

If you’re game, head to MyWatchBegins.com. There you can listen to the oath and add your voice to the mix. Here’s how it works:

Recorder Application: Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) leads visitors through a reciting of the Night’s Watch Oath. Visitors will be asked to don headphones for the best audio experience, and once ready, they will click the “Take My Oath” button again. A countdown will appear on-screen, after which Snow will speak the Night’s Watch Oath to lead visitors through it. The oath’s words will also appear on screen and will be highlighted as they’re spoken by Snow, much like a Karaoke prompter.

Playback: Once completed, visitors can listen to the recording they just made. They can then approve or re-record their audio, after which they can see a new version of the “Night’s Watch Oath” video and hear their own voice mixed on top of the cumulative audio from all the others who have “Taken the Black.

Alternate Audio Mixes: Now visitors can search between audio mixes featuring just their own voice (“Just Me”), the chorus of voices (“Everyone Else”) or a combination of both (“Me and Everyone Else”). Once they select their mix of choice, they will click the “Use This Mix” button and be welcomed as a member of the Night’s Watch. They can also search for other voices.

Sharing: After choosing a mix, visitors will be given a direct URL and social media links (Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr) should they want to share their reading of the oath. If they choose to login to Facebook, they will be able to see which of their friends have “Taken The Black” and choose to hear a new version of the audio using only their friends’ voices.

Featured Voices: Visitors will also be able to hear separate voices from other members of the cast, celebrities and big players in established fan communities.

You have from now until February 18th to participate. On the 19th, HBO will premiere the full chorus of fans reciting the oath in celebration of the Season 2 DVD/blu-ray release. And you might want to keep track of the Game of Thrones Facebook and Twitter accounts, looks like they may be playing the whole recording live in New York City.
