War Is Coming to Asia - Game Of Thrones Season 2 Today April 20th!

Still mourning over the misfortune that has befallen on the House of Stark?

Simply cannot wait to gourge King Joffrey's eyes out? Or see what sharp-tongued one-liners will emerge from the mouth of small but crafty Tyrion Lannister?

Maybe you simply love dragons and want to stand by your Khaleesi, Daenerys - one of the few tough heroines in Westoros.

Whatever your reasons may be (and Red Dot Diva knows there are so many Houses to root for!) - DO NOT FORGET to tune in for the premiere of Season 2 of "Game of Thrones" at 9 pm tonight, exclusively on HBO Asia!

Red Dot Diva has already taken a peek at the first episode (just don't ask her how!) and she can safely say that Asian GOT fans will not be disappointed!

The Emmy and Golden-Globe Award winning fantasy TV series, based on the popular novels by esteemed writer George R.R. Martin, grows darker in Season 2 as the public beheading of of Ned Stark stirs up war between the various Houses.

The story carries on from last season at a smooth canter, and shows what has been happening in the different houses since the beheading of Ned Stark. Red Dot Diva hints that there is also a new key and benevolent character that ups the supernatural factor in Westeros in Season 2. And there are more new characters to come!

The wonderful marketing/ PR team of HBO Asia has managed to get some of the "Game of Thrones" actors to answer a host of questions from Asian fans, including Red Dot Diva and a few local bloggers and other fans. A few of Diva’s questions were chosen for the video interviews. Unfortunately, there was not enough time for the actors to acknowledge the names of those who had sent questions, so there were no credits given officially. Still, Red Dot Diva is very stoked about this!

All five of them have now been released on YouTube!

Check them out:

Interview with the devious-loooking Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister)

Interview with Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark)

Red Dot Diva thinks Michelle looks so lovely in person, and her diction is marvellous to listen to. Take note of 3:57 onwards -- that's the question Red Dot Diva submitted and she made Michelle laugh. XD

Interview with the beautiful, bright-eyed Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen)

Interview with OMG-That-Hair-and-Those-Lucious Lips Kit Harrington (Jon Snow)

Interview with strong-jawed Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister):

Watching the bearded manliness of Nikolaj answer two of Red Dot Diva questions at 1:07 and 1:57 was just a tad too swoonsome for her to handle.

And another thing, Red Dot Diva can't help but think that it is quite surreal to hear the questions she had formed in her head read out in a rather academic British accent. So posh.

Did you enjoy those clips? Here’s another one! A “Game of Thrones" Season 2 trailer to get all Asian fans hyped up for tonight's season 2 premiere on HBO Asia!

Get Your Direwolves!



Read the Kristian Nairn interview with Red Dot Diva! Kristian, who plays gentle giant Hodor in “Game of Thrones” has a really friendly and effervescent personality which shines through in this Q&A.
