Westeros wouldn’t last a week without someone keeping the ravens in order – and that’s the job of animal trainer Julie Tottman. Julie is a vital part of the Game of Thrones team, with the difficult but rewarding job of training ravens, wolves, man-eating hounds and (occasionally) over-ambitious directors for their turn in the spotlight. She has also worked on the Harry Potter films, The Dark Knight and many other major film and TV projects.

This full Festival session was recorded at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature in 2018.
