Game of Thrones: Empire Podcast with “Blackwater” Director Neil Marshall

The first movie I watched after Game of Thrones episode “Blackwater” was ‘Dog Soldiers’, a UK action-horror film about a military training mission in Scotland that becomes a deadly encounter with the supernatural. When the end credits started to roll, I noticed it was the same director as “Blackwater”. Also coincidentally, ‘Dog Soldiers’ features actor Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) as Captain Ryan, who I did not recognize at first because he plays a completely different character and is ten years younger.

Listen to Empire Podcast with Director Neil Marshall (Centurion, The Descent) for a “behind-the-scenes” discussion on the making of “Blackwater”. Neil Marshall, who was a last minute replacement because the original director had to bow out for personal reasons, discusses why the episode was shot at night, explains an executive producer wanted full frontal nudity, the truth about actor Jack Gleeson (aka Joffrey Baratheon) and the level of input he had to change the script.
