Alex Graves is an American Emmy winning producer and director for film and television. He is best known for his work on the The West Wing, which he worked on as a director, producer and eventually an executive producer, winning two Emmy Awards for his work on that series. He has also worked on Ally MacBeal, Fringe and Terra Nova.

On Game of Thrones

For Game of Thrones, Graves works as a director starting in the third season.[1]

Graves directed four episodes in Season 4, more than any other director. His daily routine for the 100 days of Season 4 shooting season was to go to wake up at 5 a.m. to get to the set, return to his hotel at 7 p.m., then work there on planning until 2 a.m., catch three hours of sleep, then wake up again at 5 a.m.[2]

On filming Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister's bath scene in "Kissed by Fire", Graves said, "...the scene with Jaime and Brienne in the bathtub is like you’re shooting a film with a lesbian and a knight, she’s a knight, he’s a knight, they’re in love and don’t know they’re in love; where else would you get to film a scene like that?"[3] Brienne of Tarth, however, is categorically not "a lesbian" in the novels or in the TV series - she is a very large and muscular female warrior and not effeminate, but she has never shown attraction to other women; it is unknown why Graves said this.

Alex Graves did not return as a director in Season 5, [4] nor did he return in Season 6.[5]
