A Day In The Life Of A Game Of Thrones Extra

Winter Is Coming

A dream of mine has always been to be an extra on a film or television show so I must admit, I’m very jealous of these folks who got the chance to work on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Especially since most of them are fans. When I watch behind-the-scenes videos like this though, I still wonder how productions like this even get made. As assistant crowd costumer Claire Snoddy says, “The logistics of organizing is very, very difficult.”
