'Game of Thrones' forgot to edit out green screen on a character's fingers on the latest episode of 'House of the Dragon'
- "House of the Dragon" forgot to edit out green screen wrapped around a character's fingers.
- King Viserys sported green screen fabric on his hand in episode three while he handed a note to a messenger.
Call it "greenscale."
The "Game of Thrones" spinoff "House of the Dragon" joined the franchise's tradition of visual goofs after un-edited green screen on a character's fingers made it into the aired version of episode three.
In the series premiere of the franchise prequel, King Viserys (Paddy Considine) cut his finger on the iron throne. In the second episode, we saw that maesters were trying to use maggots to preserve the healthy flesh.
But in episode three, the King's pinky and ring finger were now reduced to stubs. Visual effects were used to erase actor Paddy Considine's fingers, but in one scene you can still see how his digits are wrapped in green screen fabric.
As of Wednesday morning, the green fingers hadn't been edited out of the scene.
This isn't the first time editing mistakes have slipped into HBO's mega-hit. During the final season of "Game of Thrones" in 2019, a modern coffee cup was spotted resting on a dining table.
In response, HBO said at the time: "In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night's episode of 'Game of Thrones': The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."
Representatives from HBO Max did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment on the latest minor gaffe.
