Behind the Scenes: Miles Aldridge – Shooting TIME Magazine Game of Thrones Cover

This short behind the scenes video of the shooting of the cover of TIME’s magazine brings together some of the most familiar faces of the popular HBO TV show for an interesting retro photoshoot.

Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner all of them took part in this photoshoot Miles Aldridge did for TIME magazine.

The look that Aldridge (a well known British born fashion photographer who has done some very controversial shoots in the past – just check out his recent works page) was going for in this shoot was combining a version of renaissance and modern look to his subjects.

Now it might just be the video, or maybe this is completely intentional, but the colors in these images seems just a bit too over saturated for our taste – what do you think?
