Exciting new Thrones S3 video shows more new scenes + characters

HBO is handing us an invitation we can't refuse to the set of the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones, giving us more exciting glimpses into the new and returning characters that populate the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

The brand new behind-the-scenes video "Invitation to the Set" offers exciting looks at season three's new characters Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds), the Queen of Thorns, Olenna Redwyne (Dame Diana Rigg), Thoros of Myr (Paul Kay), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) and Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), among others.

We also get some interviews with Diana Rigg and Hinds, as well as some returning cast members, including Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Richard Madden (Robb Stark), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Tully) and executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Have a look and keep your eyes—and ears—peeled, since there are a lot of awesome things to see and hear in this great new video.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on March 31, 2013
