LOS AN­GE­LES: The pro­duc­tion team re­spon­si­ble for the epic lo­cales in fan­tasy drama ‘Game of Thrones’ will be given the BAFTA Spe­cial Award at this year’s Bri­tish Academy Tele­vi­sion Craft Awards.

Han­nah Mur­ray and John Bradley will col­lect the award on the be­half of the team, Va­ri­ety re­ported.

Ac­cord­ing to the Academy, the hon­our be­ing given recog­nises how the HBO se­ries has rev­o­lu­tionised var­i­ous as­pects of pro­duc­tion in shoot­ing the fan­tasy show.

Showrun­ners DB Weiss and David Be­nioff said they were happy the show had been se­lected for the well de­served hon­our.

“Many, many peo­ple work in­sanely hard to cre­ate any film or tele­vi­sion show. They are cre­ators ev­ery bit as much as ac­tors, writ­ers, pro­duc­ers or di­rec­tors, and de­serve to be rec­og­nized as such,” the duo said in a state­ment.
