Ahead of being awarded the Bafta TV Craft Special Award this Sunday (to be accepted by John Bradley and Hannah Murray!), Digital Spy caught up with Set Designer Deborah Riley to talk about her team’s proudest moments and their most challenging designs.
Care to have lunch at the Game of Thrones set in Belfast? Emilia Clarke explains how you could win such an experience in a new video in which she … well, tries to give us a peek at on-set season 8 spoilers. **Warning: incorrigible cuteness below the cut**
We may be a few months from the end of production, but casting news are still coming in! Harry Strickland (commander of the Golden Company, the mercenary group Cersei now seeks to employ with the help of the Iron Bank’s loan and Euron’s fleet,) may be the only named book character cast for season eight, but there have been many other roles. A strange trend among them is that the casting department seems to be looking for improvisation skills, which is rare for a show as tightly scripted as Game of Thrones. Today’s roles keep this up—though there are well-trodden Thrones-type characters too.

It’s comforting to be periodically reminded that the fans aren’t the only ones preparing for the end of Game of Thrones with a mixture of excitement and sadness – the cast and crew are getting pretty emotional about it too. In a recent interview, Nathalie Emmanuel discussed her feelings about the prospect of facing life after Thrones and gave her opinion of people who leak spoilers *tugs nervously at collar*.
This may not be shocking but it’s certainly surprising: Almodóvar del Río Castle in Córdoba, Spain will return in Game of Thrones season eight, which means we will revisit the (formerly) Tyrell stronghold. But what role could Highgarden play in the last season?
Game of Thrones is back in Spain for one last time! With season eight filming in Itálica reportedly scheduled to begin next week, the production crew has had much less time to prepare the location than they did last time, but they’re getting it done anyway: in a single week since construction began, the main work has been completed!
Con of Thrones is just a month and a half away and we’re all getting revved up! And what we want most is to see you all there with us. With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Mischief Management for some contests. Our very first con-contest featured a photo from Con of Thrones 2017, a fan-favorite actor (Miltos Yerolemou, who will be returning to the con in 2018), a ripe opportunity for a fun caption- and the chance to win a pair of day passes!
After days of enjoying your submissions, it’s time to announce the winner!
The seventh season of Game of Thrones has received many awards in the last months, but today’s news concerns the show as a whole: at this year’s British Academy Television Craft Awards, the Game of Thrones production team will be recognized for its prodigious efforts with a special award. And two cast members will be there to accept it!
