We're still a couple of months out from Game of Thrones' third season premiere (March 31), which is one of the most anticipated television events of the year (and rightfully so). Fans really impatient to see more of Westeros (and Essos) only have a little longer to wait. Meanwhile, the production team only has to wait a little longer than that for season 4. Jealous?
Season 4 will kick off filming in June, and some of the show's actors are already excited about the prospect. Aidan Gillen, who plays the slimy Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish on the series, has already been chatting up his involvement with the fourth season.
“I’m chilling out till June,” he told the Herald. “And then I’m going back to do Game Of Thrones.”
Fans of the book series should be pretty excited by where Littlefinger is going next -- and so is Gillen. The actor, who appeared in last year's 'The Dark Knight Rises,' is excited in particular about one aspect of the fourth season. "It should be a good one," he remarked. "I have a ship in this series which is cool."
The fourth season, which will adapt the second half of 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book three, 'A Storm of Swords' (and maybe some of the fourth/fifth books), will certainly give Littlefinger plenty to do. We won't spoil it for you here, but if you're really curious, we always encourage you to sit down and read the books. They look lengthy, but they fly right by.
Game of Thrones season 3 will premiere on March 31.
