New director joins Game Of Thrones season 5

Breaking Bad director Michael Slovis will be behind the camera for 2 episodes of Game Of Thrones' 5th season...

After directing four of the ten episodes in Game Of Thrones' solid fourth season (The Lion And The Rose, Breaker Of Chains, The Mountain And The Viper, The Children), Alex Graves told Collider earlier this year he would be taking a well-deserved break from Westeros for season five, with plans to return for season six.

That left a Graves-shaped hole in the Game Of Thrones' fifth season directing roster, one now filled by Michael Slovis (Breaking BadLaw & Order: SVUChicago Fire). Director and cinematographer Slovis confirmed at a Behind The Lens event in May that he will be behind the camera for the first two episodes of season five. 

Slovis, who has directing credits on four episodes of Breaking Bad (KafkaesqueCorneredLive Free Or DieConfessions) and director of photography credits on over twenty, is a newcomer to Game Of Thrones, a show that tends to draw from a small pool of behind-the-camera regulars, recently including Graves, Michelle Maclaren, David Nutter and Alik Sakharov, alongside showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.
