Location shooting in the Croatian town of Sibenik for Game of Thrones season 5 began today, and several of the show’s actors were on hand for filming.
Slobodnadalmacija.hr snapped several photos of the scene being shot in front of the historic Cathedral of St. James. There was reportedly controversy over the use of the site but that appears to have been resolved.
The scene filmed involves Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, and Ian Beattie as Ser Meryn Trant. With the characters present and the costuming of the extras, we can see that Sibenik’s square by the cathedral will be standing in for the Free City of Braavos.
Warning: spoilers below the cut!
The actors are wearing the same costumes as they were when they were filming on the waterfront in Kastel Gomilica, so this may be a continuation of that scene.
Sibenik.in also photographed the action in the square today, catching a broad view of the filming.
Even the Deputy Mayor of Sibenik, Danijel Mileta, joined the show as an extra, shown below.
One more thing! The other day, Emilia Clarke and Michiel Huisman were spotted on set in Split, with pics taken. Some more photos turned up later on that day, confirming the appearance of another character in that location shooting: Hizdahr zo Loraq, played by Joel Fry.
Update! DalmacijaNews has posted several more photos of today’s production showing filming with Maisie Williams and Ian Beattie. Looks like Arya may have spotted the Kingsguard knight…
