Our local crew is stocked with remarkably passionate, talented folks. Unlike some places where big productions are commonplace, like Hollywood or London, we still feel a sense of excitement from the community that we’ve chosen Belfast as the show’s hub. BRYAN COGMAN: Finally, at what point did you realize [former assistant, now story editor] Bryan Cogman was the key to the success of this thing? D. B. WEISS: Sadly, it was moments after we fired him and sold his baby to the circus. DAVID BENIOFF: He constantly threatened to quit our show and work on Camelot.

WEISS: The question answers itself: there is a lot in there. George hasn’t just told a story—he’s built a world. Ten hours is a fair amount of time to tell a story, but to establish a world, you have to be efficient or risk losing things you love. In the first season, I’d say we managed to keep almost everything we really loved. Going forward, alas, there will have to be some sacrifices or compressions—otherwise we’d need thirty episodes per season, and our casting budget would sink the ship. But the aim will always be to preserve the spirit of the series—to make a show that makes viewers feel the way the books made us feel when we first read them … and reread them, and re-reread them.

There were two audition pieces for Jon; one from the first episode and another from a scene late in the third novel, A Storm of Swords. Kit Harington stood out right from the start because he was able to fully embody Jon Snow at these two very different points in the story—the callow youth of the pilot and the seasoned warrior of future seasons. KIT HARINGTON: I fell in love with him immediately because he’s not a clichéd hero. He makes mistakes; he’s possessed with a lot of self-loathing and doubt.
