'Game of Thrones' cast, showrunners offer peak at Season 3

HBO is finally giving fans a good look at the upcoming third season of "Game of Thrones" in a new behind-the-scenes video.

Showrunner D.B. Weiss promises "tremendous reversals of fortune" in the season, while showrunner David Benioff calls it the "the rise and fall season."

"There's so many characters who come into the season with power of some kind who lose everything, and other characters who enter with almost nothing and achieve great power," he says.

Several of the show's stars, from vets like Richard Madden to newcomers like Dame Diana Rigg, also comment on how big and expansive the season is with many new characters coming into play.

"We kill a lot of characters, but every character we kill we add two more," says Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister.

Who else can't wait for the Season 3 premiere on March 31? And what character are you most excited to see?
