It is neither luck nor royal favor that makes House Lannister prosperous. Just ask the unreasonably rich Tywin Lannister about the origins of his family—he'll be happy to tell you all about his roar.
Lannisters always pay their debts, of course, and so does the upcoming "Game of Thrones" season one Blu-ray set. In this exclusive featurette, you'll find one more reason to eagerly anticipate your return trip to Westeros with the upcoming home video release and subsequent season two premiere—namely, that this show plays host to so many fantastic families and charismatic characters, the Lannisters chief among them.
"There have been times in our history where some have thought us weak, lazy or opulent," says the icy voice of Charles Dance in character as Tywin in the exclusive featurette. He details one particular occasion where the Lannisters were mocked openly and rebelled against—a rebellion that was, as expected, quickly smashed.
"They learned how dangerous it can be to taunt a lion," Tywin offers with all the self-assuredness fans have come to expect from the Lannister patriarch.
Find out more about the Lannisters and other great houses of Westeros when "Game of Thrones" arrives on Blu-ray on March 6, 2012. The HBO fantasy series returns for a second season on April 1, 2012.
