A closer look at Game of Thrones Dubrovnik filming, and an Emilia Clarke sighting?

7sOcljy

Game of Thrones filming in Dubrovnik, Croatia, has begun and the show is going all out, with incredibly detailed sets and props on location.

One traveler snapped several photos of the set in Dubrovnik as it came together in the last couple days, showing off what appears to be a marketplace.

One redditor, as well as coming across a box mentioning a Braavos brothel (brothels already confirmed by the presence of returning character Lhara) overheard talk of a Fleabottom scene being filmed.

Back in Northern Ireland, filming rolls on in Magilligan. Shooting was reported to be happening on the cliffs in the area two days ago. According to this report, a local claims to have seen Emilia Clarke in Magilligan. While Meereen filming is less likely in Northern Ireland, it’s not out of the question, as Essos exterior scenes have been filmed in N.I. before. The sighting is unconfirmed, however.

According to Telegraaf.nl, actor Mishael Lopes Cardozo will have a speaking role in season 5 of Game of Thrones, and share a scene with Tyrion and Varys. Sources say he’s playing a brothel guard and we know that the show was casting for a female brothel worker for Tyrion to interact with, so it does make sense there would be other speaking roles in the scene.

Bonus: here are some more photos from yesterday’s filming with Lena Headey and Dean-Charles Chapman in Dubrovnik with assorted Kingsguard and Lannister soldiers.

    1. My godn they have included carrots! We all know carrots are orange (well, after centuries of carefully selecting them that is) and which character has orange hair? :p

    2. Man, with a couple one-second shots of the tables of produce, they could cover over half a chapter of ADWD!!! *Ba-dum tish*

      …I’ll show myself out.

    3. As the guy who posted this on reddit noted, it’s really cool how they cover up modern doorways and piping etc. with fabric or a medieval-looking door or a plant. The production’s very lucky to have these preserved medieval cities to shoot in and yet even there a lot of touch-up is required.

      Though that prop box makes it plain that they shot Braavos stuff in Dubrovnik today, Maisie’s twitter seems to indicate that she’s in the States. Hmm… I suppose other folks could be stalking the alleys of Braavos…

    4. OT, but gods… has anyone visited the old site lately? Pretty much none of their articles reach 10 comments anymore! It’s crazy.

      I know they hired new staff, and are trying to keep it going, but at this rate I’m wondering if Fansided will just give up and shut down the site? 5 or 6 comments per article can’t be enough to justify their costs. Maybe they’ll last until the next season of GoT, but I’m starting to think they might disappear before then.

    5. I really enjoyed seeing the eggplants and pomegranates. Can’t wait until their episode, if they make the cut. Carrots, potatoes, apples, lettuce and cucumbers usually get all the attention. Time for a change.

    6. I keep seeing rumors that Charles dance is coming back for season 5 which doesn’t make a whole lotta sense to me. D&D have taken a string stance against flashbacks but I guesss they have done a few dream sequences…. I’ve been looking for confirmation of this rumor on WotW but so far nothing….

    7. Dumb stupid guy,

      Tywin will leave a corpse behind, you know? 😉 Tywin’s funeral is a major setpiece in AFFC, and I’ll imagine they’ll use the event to reestablish some characters and their motivations for the season. It’s not the kind of thing they would cut. Dreams or visions featuring Tywin are still a possibility, of course, but that’s still kind of a wilder hypothesis compared to the rather mundane and completely expected possibility that we will see Tywin’s corpse.

      Also, Charles Dance returning is not a rumor but something the actor himself confirmed in an interview for another movie. And it WAS reported on this site:

    8. Greenjones,

      .

      Given the bombardment and sniper fire the city endured from the Serbians in the 90s, Im amazed there is anything left.

    9. Um, excuse me, but eggplants are a summer vegetable? Westeros is presently in deep fall, which would mean produce from the Reach would be slightly smaller in size and not nearly as abundant. No food-monger from Fleabottom would be able to afford such costly foods to sell much less eat. And those Dornish hot peppers are not the correct color.

      Immersion broken; D&D are hacks, show dropped.

      I have looked there (old site) a couple of times – never say never. To be fair to them it does seem that they are trying to improve things but it is unfortunate that it took a mass defection for them to do so. I’m sad it ended up like that but this site has the spirit of the old site before……………………….

      I wonder what do they do with all this fruits and vegetables after finishing the shooting ^_^

      I know this is a dumb question, but are those fruits and vegetables even real? Maybe they’re fake and just set props.

      Sometimes shootings are long or last longer than expected, and spoiling food is a waste of the budget.

    12. Balerion The Cat,

      Not really – fake food can look quite convincing. As long as there are no close-ups or time spent focusing on it (like the PW), it might be more convenient to have props you can move around whenever required (and save some money of course).

      But you’re correct too about using real food, I was just wondering, seeing the set pictures.

    13. In the bonus photos Lena seems to be staring at whoever is taking the snaps

      And yes , unfortunately the old site is dead as a dodo now , fansided got what was coming to them with that one , maybe they learned a lesson though..

      They probably don’t care that much about comments or a functioning community, it’s all about clicks and quantity over quality.

      ditto

      anything that isn’t asskissing is deleted

      also the shilling is strong there

      I’m glad I can read good stuff in here, but I’m still not 100% commited to stop visiting there, even though the bait articles make me wanna puke. And let’s not forget, wic.net sold out to fansided anyway so they(now here) are as much to blame as the new staff over there.

    16. JP Dayne,

      Maybe I’m wrong but it was my understanding that WinterPhil who sold – and good for him – nothing wrong with working hard on something and making some money at the end from it. That doesn’t mean the folks here have any responsibility in that sale.
