Dinklage arrives in Belfast for season 7 filming

14

You know we’re in filming season because sightings of the cast and those ubiquitous pink GOT sign are coming every day now!

Yesterday in our roundup, Lena Headey, Aidan Gillen, John Bradley, Conleth Hill, Ellie Kendrick and the Mountain himself, Hafþór Björnsson were spotted in Belfast. Now, nearing the end of the first week of filming, Peter Dinklage finally joins the fray. The actor was spotted this morning at the Belfast airport:

It looks like Gemma Whelan has arrived as well- her and Lena Headey ran into one another at the airport today. Given the conversation, it sounds like Headey is already headed out of Belfast- but interestingly, this was the first time these actresses have met!

In other sightings news, IrishThrones has shared a pink-sign sighting, indicating filming (or filming very soon to come) near Corbet-Banbridge. Last week, they also reported of work happening out in Corbet, a location that last year served as the site for Riverrun.

One last item today: in the season finale, it was left up in the air whether or not we’d be seeing Daenerys’ lover Daario Naharis again anytime soon, as she left him behind in Meereen. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Daario portrayer Michiel Huisman addresses the question- sort of.

When asked by ET if he knew if he’d be returning the show, the actor responded evasively, saying “Yes I do, and I’m not supposed to spoil that.”

Make of that what you will, but it’s a slightly suspicious response.

Discussing the series in general, Huisman says, “Being part of Game of Thrones, you’re always expecting your character to die…You’re not mentally preparing yourself for a very long haul.”

Speculate away!

    1. Oh so he comes back then. Some on YouTube have speculated that he’s going to join forces with Euron out of bitterness after Dany “broke up” with him, but I don’t buy it.

    2. I think he’s just going to grab a boat out of meereen and follow Dany and she’ll probably be impressed as hell. Then he’ll die in her first battle in Westeros. Jorah will rejoice.

    3. I could do without any more Daario. If he leaves Dragon’s Bay then he’s not doing what Daenerys tasked him with. That certainly doesn’t seem like an action that would please her. Maybe he’ll just take off by himself and find Jorah…

      I’m not sure that I buy it either – perhaps he comes back for a short scene or two and we get to see Meereen briefly after Daenerys’s departure (and perhaps Daario’s death?).

    5. So, I’m guessing we should see Emilia soon too. I don’t see what purpose Daario would have.

    6. It seems Daario will follow Dany or rebel against her ? And Jaqen will follow Arya or go after her or show up at the Citadel ? Is Michael spoiling us or trolling ?

    8. Yes! I was lamenting yesterday that Dinklage still hadn’t been spotted. Now I await news of Emilia’s and Kit’s arrival.

      I adore Meera, so I’m glad to hear Ellie Kendrick is in Belfast. I hope she has an expanded role in S7 since the cast is now vastly reduced.

      I’m surprised they’ve never met. I thought all the main and supporting actors were require to be all table reads before filming. I’d have thought Lena and Gemma would have run into each other at one of those. Unless they are divided into groups of actors who’ll be filming together? *knows little and less about table reads*

      BUT…….
      interview spoiler:

      you may be right.
      The U.K.’s Daily Express is reporting she and her people are in talks with GOT people about appearing as a guest role in season 7.

      If she turns up as the Mountain I intend to take full credit for giving D&D the idea 😀

      Meanwhile for anyone who likes to get really excited about TWOW only to have their hopes smashed to pieces, some people on Reddit have found what seem to be placeholders for it on Amazon France. It’s too long to go into the evidence they’ve found (a fair bit to be honest) but the long and short of it is some people have now convinced themselves it’s due out on 9 March 2017. Check it out if you fancy some top quality tinfoil 🙂 Oh yeah and if that turns out to be correct too, I’m changing my name to Claire Voyant and running out to buy lottery tickets 😀

      Hot casting rumor for seventh season (likely summer 2017 TV) mega-series “Murder, She Wrote” star Angela Lansbury (90) is to play a guest role in two episodes.
      Planned are four days of shooting, BILD found out production circles.

      I don’t see what purpose Daario would have.

      Did Daario ever have a purpose besides providing butt beefcake and making Jorah jealous? Kind of a pointless character IMO. I won’t miss him.

      Interesting to hear of Ellie Kendrick coming to shoot in snowless Belfast, though. Maybe just indoor scenes, but they’re probably shooting a lot out of sequence this year. I really really hope that we follow her to Greywater Watch and/or the Isle of Faces in Season 7! I’m thinking that she drops Bran off at Winterfell and then is sent on a mission.

      As for Angela Lansbury doing a cameo in GoT: It’s a fun fantasy, even if the source is completely bogus! Imagine her and Olenna conniving together…

      lol! That’s a day-brightener.

      Does anyone think Tyrion and Cersei will meet face-to-face this year? Wouldn’t it be something if Cersei acknowledged Joffrey’s death wasn’t his doing, but because of the prophecy? Nah … I think power is going to make her a really crazed bitch, not wiser. And Tyrion showing up as Hand of a younger, more beautiful Queen will really rankle her.

      I wouldn’t mind a little more of Daario. Nor would I mind if he and Jorah somehow got together again, although can’t imagine how that would happen.

      Ahh…another Meera fan! I, too, would like to see more of her. If she drops Bran off in WF, perhaps she heads home (or tells Dad to meet her in WF to help explain a few things to Jon).

      I am fairly certain that we will see Daario again and I don’t think that he will betray Dany. He will die defending her.

    17. Selina,

      Given that Ellie Kendrick was in Belfast, it was quite likely that Isaac would be there as well. Good to have confirmation.

      I think Kit, Emilia, Sophie, Maisie and Liam are the only ones yet to be spotted in Belfast since filming began? Maisie and Sophie had been there around 25th August, but that was before filming had started I think, particularly since Sophie still had blond hair.

        Quote  Reply

    18. Maybe Daario and the Second Sons will be the ones to rush in and save the day, when things are looking dark for Daenerys (similar to the Knights of the Vale in Season 6).

      I think it’s Kit, Nikolaj, Sophie, Liam and others who haven’t been spotted in Belfast this week. Emilia doesn’t get recognized often (as she claims) so maybe she is already there. She was in UK since last week.

    20. A good article by the well respected Australian born reviewer and author Clive James, who tried to avoid watching GoT but ultimately fell under its spell.

      A little taster

      Everyone in the show is dispensable, as in the real world. But without Tyrion you would have to start the show again, because he is the epitome of the story’s moral scope. His big head is the symbol of his comprehension, and his little body the symbol of his incapacity to act upon it. Tyrion Lannister is us, bright enough to see the world’s evil but not strong enough to change it.

Could it be that his s7 role will be limited? Would make no sense given his character and it being the final stretch of the series but it’s possible.

      Many of them have said in the past that they only read their parts, so that they can enjoy the surprises of the show when it airs. Perhaps they do only get them together for group reads, not the full cast. Maybe only section by section, to maintain secrecy as well.

    28. This is such exciting news. It has been awhile since I have posted anything on here.

      As for Daario, I think he will come to KL with the Second Sons. It think Dany will need them as part of her arsenal.

      OT: I live in Tallahasse, FL and I am okay. The hurricane just blew out my power but I got it back last night. Also, you can see I have internet too! Everything is all good! 🙂

    29. Eh. As I said before – Until some enterprising fan installs a camera at the entrance to see who films with whom, just the presence of actors in Belfast isn’t much of a spoiler.

      Although, besides Jon and Dany, we’re still missing Ellaria, the Snakes, Olenna, Theon, Bronn, the Hound and Davos at the minimum.

    30. I highly doubt Daario is coming back to the show
      Obviously he can’t give an answer either way….

      But what purpose would be serve… He never really clicked properly as a character on the show… The original actor (while not that great) definitely brought that sleezey arrogance to him.
      New Daario was rather bland, and I think it was smart to leave him in Meereen

      Thanks guys. I’ll know to view anything from Bild with a healthy dose of scepticism in future. If you hadn’t seen Sue’s comment, apparently it’s old news which HBO have denied. Not sure whether Bild are GoT-savvy enough to troll us intentionally, but the picture they choose was one where she’s standing next to some organisation’s logo with a lion’s head in it. Thought it might be an Angela Lannisterbury hint 😉

    32. Daario could have a few things to do.

      – Red priests and priestesses are still in Slaver’s Bay, and they must have something to do; why else show them at such length in season 6? Maybe they get up to something, and maybe Daario is involved somehow, as he’s now the guardian of Meereen.

      – Jorah is looking for a cure. Maybe Daario helps him with that. Maybe Jorah finds his own cure, and has to fight Daario.

        Quote  Reply

    33. I’m really not interested in seeing Daario again, or seeing or hearing anything more about Slaver’s Bay.

      They should consider that element of the show comprehensively done and dusted now.

      If they want to tack on the revelation that Daario was murdered by his own men and Slaver’s Bay has descended back into anarchy right at the end of the show, to demonstrate that there really is no lasting peace and Daenerys can’t really “break the wheel”, then that’d be fine by me.

      But Daario turning up, either having switched sides or at the last minute to save the day, I think would suck.

      Daenerys has moved on to the next chapter, which is Westeros, the White Walkers, Cersei, Jon Snow, etc.

      Daario is defunct.

      Hopefully Huisman is being coy because he’s not supposed to reveal that he won’t ever be returning.

    36. Yaga,

      It is an interesting prospect.

      Perhaps Jon/Sansa sends Littlefinger to negotiate with some other House as a test of his loyalty.

      Or perhaps he abandons them of his own accord once he hears about Daenerys.

      As the producers have talked about needing the later filming months to film the cold winter weather, the fact that Aiden may be filming scenes early in the schedule, at the same time as Peter, Lena, Nikolaj, John Bradley, etc. might suggest that Littlefinger ends up back down south at some point during the season.

      Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him desert Sansa if he can’t manage to wrap her round his finger again.

      His goal is the Iron Throne and, especially once he hears that Daenerys is on her way to Westeros, he’ll surely realise that Sansa no longer provides the key to taking the Iron Throne what with Jon, Cersei and Daenerys now standing in the way.

    37. Daario said, explicitly, that he fights for beauty, and that he only does what he wants to do. Euron is butt ugly, so Daario will never fight for him.

    38. Not a fan of referring to any character as The Big 3 on this show. I’m far too invested in all the characters to think of anyone as Big just yet (which is probably a wise way to approach GoT unless you want your heart broken). I saw the date June 25 2017 on Instagram. Is that confirmed?

      That’s an interesting take… I too felt that Daario would show up at a critical time to rescue Dany. Although, I don’t think there will be a sea battle before Dany takes the city, which I think you’re alluding to? I’m not opposed to a sea battle, generally, I’m opposed to it as a solution to straw-man problems:

      Dany has it too easy
      Dothraki would be savages among the civilized

      etc..

      I don’t like that Dany is isolated from two people who were with her from the beginning: Jorah and Daario. I don’t like it that Tyrion is the one who suggested to her to leave Daario behind. Tyrion, in an indirect way, is also responsible for Jorah’s greyscale….very indirect way.

      Nobody in KL gives a damn when Kings/Queens have more than one consort – as long as they’re same sex. Robert banged everything walking with a vagina – that’s important. Everyone accepts that marriages are more alliance that love affair. So, what is Tyrion REALLY up to?

      Many see Tyrion as brilliant, but he has had some epic fails too…and his drinking is a serious problem, along with his fragility and unwillingness to fully accept that his family doesn’t really love him….except maybe Jaime – a little bit.

      Thanks for sharing that link. Tough for me to understand the mindset of someone who thinks that dragons are a reason to avoid watching something; but it was nice to see him come around to enjoying the show based on the politics and the dialogue and the characters, which I agree are its main strengths.

      I also found it interesting that he mentions Dany only in a slighting way and Jon not at all, finding the Lannisters and Littlefinger the most compelling characters and King’s Landing the most important stage. Wonder how he’ll cope with the center of the action shifting to the North.

      Can’t disagree with him on Tyrion being the most essential character, though. Jon may be the SoIaF personified, the reincarnation of the PTWP, Azor Ahai and the Last Hero all rolled into one, but Tyrion is the viewer’s way in, our Everydwarf. If he dies before the very end I expect that my interest will wane significantly.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if King Jon gets a mini-makeover for S7. Maybe that’s why the producers have allowed him to cut his hair and beard this summer. Lol, of the 3 different hairstyles he sported in S6, the bob in 6×03 was my least favorite. I was so happy that he pulled it back into the manbun by 6×04.

    42. Anon,

      IMHO Daario may take a path of don Jose and kill Daeny like Carmen in the final act/episode. Not that I whish that, but that would be bittersweet.

      As for Tyrion, he might be unconsciously trying to become something like William Cecil for Elisabeth I and this means that Daeny will never have a chance to find personal happiness (also bittersweet).

      It doesn’t pain me so that a fictional character can die. I will leave those sorts of powerful emotions to the borderline psychotics. Be assured that my opinions are authentically mine, that they are based on observed facts, and come from a sane mind.

      I think it is highly likely that Kit might start shooting GoT in the next two weeks. Xavier Dolan is taking a break from shooting The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, in order to appear at the Toronto film festival, and yet it has been confirmed that Kit will not be there.
      My guess is he is not going to the Toronto film festival because he has to start shooting GoT. Just like now, he is currently missing the Venice film festival because he is still working on The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

      It is interesting to think that Littlefinger might have some scenes without all of the other Northern characters. I think Daario has actually had a very good ending for someone in GoT, I hope he does not come back again.

      Jon is popular in his own right (and he’s had his best season now). There were some fans who were actually hoping for Davos to be his running mate. I think it’s a combination of both running mates and hardcore GoT fans who are probably over Dany at this point.

      Just wanted to comment and say I absolutely agree with Clive James on dragons, and actually, any sort of fantasy animal. Dragons aren’t interesting or magical or wonderful. Maybe it’s from being forced to read Call of the Wild, but I have never found fictional animals interesting. They just seem like cheap literary devices to me. I especially loath the visual of a beautiful woman riding a dragon. *shudder* Nothing seems more trite and dull.

      On the other hand, he’s totally wrong about swords and sword fights. I can watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon over and over again.

Aiden, Nicolaj, Maisie etc may have been doing key scene reads, costume fittings, makeup tests etc. Although it’s true, the Mountain may have shot something, perhaps with Lena… In any case there is plenty of time for Kit, Sansa etc to be shooting. It’s only week 1 of pre-production ( or production )…

      Man, I thought Jon/Kit’s hair looked pretty cool after Mel had given it a trim.

      Honestly, I’m so jealous of that guy’s hair anyway, but if my hair looked as good as Jon’s did during that execution scene in 6×03 I’d be a happy man.

      He did look pretty badass with the man-bun and I think it worked well for the Tower of Joy parentage reveal as we cut to Jon’s face without his luxurious mane to distract from the focus on his face.

      His look was obviously meant to be reminiscent of Ned last season too, for imagery and narrative purposes.

      They might change up his look slightly to reflect whatever they do with him next season. More Robb-like? More Rhaegar-like? More Daario-like? Who knows?

    50. Jack Bauer 24,

      I reckon the Sand Snakes will be involved in any fighting we see between the Lannisters and the Tyrells/Dorne.

      One of the most important themes last season was about weak men being unfit to lead. And Ellaria made specific reference to how Doran was housebound and out of touch with his people, and how he failed to avenge the deaths of Elia and Oberyn.

      So I don’t think we’re going to see the Sand Snakes just sitting around in the Water Gardens while there’s a war going on.

      I think Ellaria and the Sand Snakes provide another conundrum for the producers. They’re not particularly well liked by the viewers and they’re basically murderous traitors so don’t necessarily fit with Daenerys’ whole image. What to do with them?

      Well, they could serve a useful purpose in upping the death count in a cast that is increasingly being thinned down to fan favourites and characters with plot armour.

      So I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a Sand Snake or two crushed under whatever sort of hell fire Cersei decides to rain down on Dorne and the Reach.

      As far as Daario goes…if he does catch a boat across the Narrow Sea, maybe he can give Gendry a lift the rest of the way back to Westeros. After all those years of rowing, he’s gonna be one hell of a built Smith now!

      Perhaps it will be an ode to the real daddy snow? Because for some reason I can picture the first scene with Jon in s7 with him sitting in Winterfell, looking stunned/angry/sad and the camera pans out from him to find bran sitting there and Jon saying something like “All my life, I thought I was a bastard. And it was all a lie.”

      (Because I can’t picture Rhaegar perfectly clean shaven like Viserys, but idk if that’s just me…)

      While I am sure Lyanna Mormont is very popular, I doubt that people would actually prefer her over Dany and Tyrion. It’s Jon who won ( with help from Lyanna of course) .

      I think next season, they will highlight Jon’s connection to Rhaegar, which might mean a change of look for him as well.
      At least I hope so. I don’t want him to sit out the next few weeks just waiting for his beard to grow 🙂 .

    55. I’m hoping for a new look and wardrobe for Jon. But the costume designers have always been so focused on the female clothing, the males have gotten plain, monotonous outfits and have barely ever changed. Or have never had like Jorah.

      KingindaNorf shouldn’t wear such simplistic and common gear like the generic Stark armour. At least fancy it up a little.

      As for the hairdo. The manbun is a lot better than those flowy curls being on the loose imo. But I’d like to see Jon get the Jaime/Bran/Loras/Lancel treatment, ie a total haircut.

      Hopefully, Jon keeps the beard Kit has now. Just a 5 o’clock shadow or what he had in s2.

      That beard seems so much more like Jon Snow’s now! Yeah, you can see the sign pointing towards British Airways lounge in the background. He is probably going home. Hopefully, he will be in Belfast soon.

      Lol, the guy pictured with him has a King in the North shirt on 🙂 .

      I have never found fictional animals interesting.

      I agree with you, esp talking animals (aside from animated films, cartoons and Animal Farm 🙂 But dragons? Oh I love them – such amazing looking beasts and so many different cultures have them in their lore that it makes you wonder….mmmm maybe they did rule the earth at one time….(probably not but its fun to think about)

      I dont think there will be time to follow any more of a Dario storyline….it will be tight enough to bring all the current main storyline’s together in the 15 or so eps which remain. Just my opinion

    60. ash,

      Yes. I like me some dragons as well. They’re just really cool, in moderation of course. The thought just popped in my head the other day wondering if indeed there ever was a real similar beast, seeing as how much they’ve been depicted in stories and lore. I’ve been casually researching history, myth and religions due to getting into the Vikings program and it’s interesting how what the Germanic and Celts beliefs were about some of their genetic ancestors being part human, part deity and how it coincides with where the Bible talks about a race of giants due to the “Nephilim” coming to earth and mating with women which produced the heroes of old/men of renown.

    61. Could that twitter exchange be more quintessentially British?

      ygritte: The thought just popped in my head the other day wondering if indeed there ever was a real similar beast, seeing as how much they’ve been depicted in stories and lore.

      Dragons almost certainly were inspired by dinosaur fossils. Bones of dinosaurs and large mammals almost certainly inspired stories of giants, too. For example, elephant skulls were thought to be cyclops’ skulls!

      However, elephants are instructive. Although European peoples had lived with elephants only a few thousand years ago, their stories retained no information about them. So, seeing elephants failed to inspire stories about them thousands of years later. Verbal traditions probably do not retain information very well: despite that being a major premise for SoI&F!

      Jorah's Mormont: I dont think there will be time to follow any more of a Dario storyline….

      maria: Daario could have a few things to do.

      I have to agree with Jorah. Daario is a secondary character: he exists only to be a foil for Daeny so that she can evolve and help create the story. Daario basically is Daeny’s Wallis Simpson: only Daeny made the opposite choice of Edward.

      That would be very inconsistent with both Jon’s character and with Northern Culture, at least as we see it depicted on show or books. The southerners might expect their Kings to look fancy: but Northerners do not seem to much care about that.

      Of course, the “fancy” part of the northerner outfits might be the particular animal furs that they wear. Ned tended to wear wolf-skin cloaks with the wolf’s head still part of it: and perhaps if you are a northerner, that says something.

      Aggghhh!!! Nooooo!!! ::makes the warding gesture:: Not a ‘totaled’ haircut! Jon is a romantic hero, not a drill sergeant or an inmate of some institution. He must have long hair. Just think how gorgeous Viggo Mortensen looked as Aragorn, and how radically less so he has looked in every movie that he has been in since, in more contemporary settings. Kit Harington with a short haircut would just be an ordinary, not particularly striking, conformist-looking guy (with a really nice physique, granted). Next thing you know, he’ll be walking around in a suit and tie carrying a briefcase. Perish the thought!

      And 5 o’clock shadow? Ever try kissing a man with stubble? It’s like using sandpaper for a washcloth. Either a real beard, or nothing, says I.

      Any Benioff and Weiss sightings?

      You know, until mentioned , D&D do get sighted in NI, but , in general, seem more invisible than the cast, probably because most people only care about the cast.

    65. Firannion,

      George RR Martin always said there is more to Daario than appears. Whether the show goes that route or whether that really means much I don’t know. I have always assumed his purpose was more than just Dany protector or lover.
