LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season” will be released on Tuesday and Access Hollywood has your first look at one of the special features from the release, one focusing on Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister.
In this exclusive clip, which you can watch HERE, or on Access Hollywood this weekend (check your local listings), fans get an inside look at how the crew created the moment when Tyrion gets permanently scarred – with a large gash across his face — on the battlefield in Episode 9 of the second season.
On the HBO Select version of the release (which includes Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy) there are a host of additional features, including the rich “Histories & Lore” section.
In the section, various characters narrate the backstories of some of the most famous locations in the series, atop lightly animated artistic impressions of the areas and figures.
Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) narrates the history of Dragonstone, noting its significance to the drama, while Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) explains why Harrenhal is so important.
In the fantastic piece on “The Night’s Watch,” narrated by Ygritte (Rose Leslie), fans learn about what the wildlings/free folk think of the “crows” who guard the Southern kingdom from The Wall. And, she shares a fascinating story about a blue-eyed ice queen, a night’s watchman brought across the wall, and ruled with, for more than a dozen years.
The package also has audio commentary on the episodes, and all the character profiles from Season 2, including a look at the journeys of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow and Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen.
“The only person that she can truly trust is herself. It’s a pretty lonely path that she’s going down,” Emilia Clarke said of her character.
“Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season” will be released on February 19.
