Emilia Clarke back to work on a windy Northern Irish day

Emilia Clarke has been busy with filming this week, turning up for shooting Game of Thrones season 7 this weekend and continuing her work as recently as yesterday.

The khaleesi shared a brief video with fans from her current shooting location in Northern Ireland. Clarke was in full Daenerys getup, with her character’s ultra fair hair in place. She’s in a wildly windy site with her words almost eaten by the noise of it:

Naturally everyone is wondering, what is Emilia Clarke filming on location? Good question. We don’t know yet. Maybe a dragon ride like the video’s tags tease?

Anyway,  we do have a good idea of where she is. We’ve had reports in the last week or so of activity around the Murlough Bay/Fair Head/Ballycastle area.  Yesterday, WotW reader Richard informed us that Game of Thrones filming was taking place on Fair Head, in areas where the show has filmed in the past. HBO’s production set teams have been (temporarily) removing the GoT tourism marker posts from the area and the signage on top of Fair Head. 

There’s also a tweet from a local, spotting white smoke in the area:

Additionally, Game of Thrones hairstylist Candice Banks shared this image yesterday, on the job and on location:

We’ve also heard that crew members have been visiting the Red Door Tea Room in Ballintoy in recent weeks, which is located close to Ballintoy Harbor and Larrybane Quarry where many scenes from various storylines have been filmed for Game of Thrones. According to locals, it was very windy and sunny yesterday afternoon along the north coast in this area near Ballintoy and Fair Head, so the weather suits Emilia’s video.

Also in town as of yesterday: Iain Glen!

Coincidence? Possible. But it would be one heck of one. Is Jorah finding his way back to his khaleesi?

    1. Tags definitely suggest dragon ride. Perhaps Daenerys is scouting the land at this location from high up?
      Jorah is back for sure. I wonder where and when in Season 7, will he meet his Khaleesi.

    2. My guess, it’s the coast of Stormlands – looks rather similar to what we saw in S2. Winterfell area excluded, cause now it has to be covered in snow. But the most interesting thing is that no extras look to be involved in the scene. Of cause, her army may be shown camping nearby with the help of CGI, but on the other hand it might be a hint that Dany will be dropped by Drogon in the middle of nowhere once again.

    3. I wish Jorah would meet Quaithe again while he’s trying to find a cure for his GS though I think Sam and the Citadel could and probably will be involved in it.

    4. Oh, I’ve been away from the site for too long (again) and now I’m totally lost… I really need to read other articles (but no SPOILER posts).

      Most of the articles right now are spoilerish. Yay

      If the article is only about filming location or casting new roles, it doesn’t bother me. But if it is marked “Spoilers below”, I intend to skip it because it may spoil the plot.

    7. In a way I want my favorite character Ser Jorah to not return because dammit the good people (almost) always die on this crazy show.

    8. Looks like Dany will find her red door in Ballintoy! I wonder if the crew picked that tea room because of its name.

      I also would like Jorah to revisit Quaithe. It would be the payoff for the Season 2 scene in which Jorah spoke with Quaithe as she was tattoing a man for protection from the greyscale in Valyria.

      Good luck! I’m trying too, but I’ve read every article so far 🙁 I’ve got the willpower of a tree stump :O

    10. How long are the breaks between filming, do you think? Becuase Gemma Whelan’s instagram looks like she is onto something else entirely?!?!

    11. Maisie and Isaac were spotted in Belfast a few days ago.

      Kit Harington was seen in NI a few days ago as well?

      Isaac, I assume would have been filming at Magheramorne Quarry (Hope I did not botch the spelling!) for the Wall scenes , Kit possibly at Corbet>

    12. Eilidh,

      Gemma Whelan might be already done with the show already. Yara is one of the most probable casualties of the upcomming battle with Euron, and that scenes were already filmed.
      On the other hand, we heard that she hurt her back during filming, so, the showrunners might have had to alter the filming scheduler to give her more time to recover.

      She’s showed no signs of a lingering injury. She posts frequently on social media and seems just fine.

    14. Hello! Does somebody know of a possible casting for Rhaegar Targaryen that’s been on the web for some weeks now?

      The recent series “Elderman” (small spoiler for that series to follow) taught me that Ser Jorah’s quest for a cure for greyscale led him to

      illegal testing on an alien species

      in a far away land. So he might just be evil enough to survive Westeros 😉

    16. I fully expect Jorah to survive long enough to save Dany one last time. Hopefully that will involve him interacting with Quaithe.
