Blistering cold, a perpetual blizzard, and only five hours of daylight—that's what the Game of Thrones folks have to work with while they're filming Season 3 in Iceland.

In this video released by HBO, the actors and creators gush about Iceland's beauty. They're using the Icelandic landscape as their 'place beyond the wall.' The actors actually have to huddle up for warmth between takes, there are actually icicles in their beards, and they're actually freezing their asses off. Art, folks—they're doing it. [Wired]
