This 'Game Of Thrones' Behind-The-Scenes Peek Is Great News For Joffrey Haters

Haven’t read the books yet? Get out of here. Spoilers EVERYWHERE. Go.

No, seriously. Go.


The Game Of Thrones behind-the-scenes blog posted a description of The Purple Wedding. We all knew this moment was coming in Season Four but it’s nice to have official confirmation. Much of the description is rather boring “talk about the weather” type stuff, but I thought this particular detail was nice:

In terms of principal cast members in attendance, the Royal Wedding was one of the largest scenes we’ve filmed since the premiere season, with 23 named parts appearing on any given day. In addition, we were delighted to welcome 218 extras as guests to the event, some of them travelling from the other side of Europe and the United States to be a part of the experience. Lookout for some familiar faces in the crowds - Pixie Le Knot is back this year, and one of our crew makes an appearance with the entertainers.

That’s an excellent point. We haven’t had that many named characters all together since at least there were at least three more Starks on the cast list. Here are a few more details about The Purple Wedding but you and I both know that it’s the banquet we’re really interested in.

While the ceremony itself was filmed in one of our semi-permanent sets in Belfast, the Sept of Baelor, the reception was filmed in a beautiful outdoor set located in Parc Gradac in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The park was transformed by our new Production Designer, Deb Riley, and her team into everything you might desire from a Royal Wedding carnival, with elaborate decorations, an epic feast and the most creative and unexpected forms of entertainment for the guests.

  • Legally Insignificant

    Sigur Ros will be playing the wedding, right? I mean, they're scheduled to appear this season and what better use of them is there?

  • Ozioma

    I'm torn between righteous glee at what's coming and dread for the aftermath.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Like my marriage.

  • Sean

    Like ANY marriage.

  • competitivenonfiction

    The title is kind of a spoiler in itself.

  • JJ

    No, it isn't. It could be a reference to anything bad happening to Joffrey.

    Spoiler alert: bad things happen to everyone in GoT.

  • competitivenonfiction

    Fair enough.

  • Keith Ballard

    What spoilers were you warning people about? That Joffrey is having a wedding? I've read the books and know exactly what you're referring to, but mentions that a ton of cast members will be together along with filming locations don't register as the kind of spoiler I thought you were getting at.

  • Aaron Schulz

    Yeah i kind of expected the spoiley spoiler, the one that spoils. I know what you mean even though that sentence does make tons of sense. And the word spoiler means nothing now.
