Preparation for the filming of Game of Thrones season 5 continues in Seville, with the Spanish city set to host Dornish scenes beginning on October 10th.
The powers-that-be at Los Siete Reinos have sourced a recent video of a scene rehearsal taking place at the Alcázar of Seville, which will serve as a filming location in the coming days. As the nature of the video is spoiler-ridden, it’s hidden below the cut.
Spoilers abound below.
In the video, we can see multiple actors, actresses and stuntmen rehearsing for a sparring/fight scene. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau can be seen towards the end, in a white shirt with his sword at his side.
The three Sand Snakes of season 5 may also be present. The woman with the spear may or may not be Keisha Castle-Hughes – the only indication that it might be her is the tweet below, suggesting that Obara takes after her father with the spear as her weapon of choice.
On my way to Dorne, @JHenwick have my spear sharpened please.

Tyene may also be present, as one of the women in the right background looks like Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, who already showed off a pair twin daggers in her casting announcement video. With this in mind, it wouldn’t be a stretch of the imagination to assume the third woman is Jessica Henwick, who graciously replied to Keisha’s tweet. We already know that Nymeria’s weapon of choice is the whip.
LSR also confirms that Jerome Flynn has flown out to Seville for filming. Some fans managed to get pictures with him and Nikolaj earlier today.

The Andalusia Film Commission has arranged for a meeting to occur between David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and Spanish students and supporters of the show, during which the filming of the fifth season will be discussed. Although the exact location has not yet been divulged, the meeting will take place in Seville on Tuesday 14th October. As LSR notes, this kind of occurrence is unprecedented, and it promises to be a unique occasion.
Finally, in an interview with WinterisComing.nl, Dutch actor/fencing teacher Mishael Lopes Cardozo has provided more information on his role in season 5. He confirms that he will not put his swordfighting skills to use in the show, and that he will share a short scene with Tyrion and Varys in episode 503, directed by Mark Mylod.
