It feels strange to compliment a bear's acting, but Little Bart, portraying one of the eponymous characters of last night's episode, really impressed me with his performance. A lot of the time when an animal in a movie or on television is supposed to be attacking someone, it's obvious that it isn't really trying to harm anybody and no one is in any real danger. I was pleased to see Little Bart, a trained bear, portraying a vicious wild bear very convincingly. I believed that Jaime and Brienne were in real peril. Kudos to the animal actor, to his handlers, and to Michelle MacLaren.
