Back in August, Nikolaj Coster Waldau revealed Game of Thrones season eight would go into production in October. We never got to know when in October filming would begin, but there are always clues; for example, a telltale sign would be if actors began flocking to Belfast, where the production is headquartered. Well, that’s exactly what’s happening!
Cindy Cross made us aware of the following photo on Twitter, in which we can see Maisie Williams is the first Game of Thrones star to be spotted returning to Belfast:

Undoubtedly, many of Williams’ co-stars will return to Northern Ireland as well in the coming days. Things will get particularly interesting when location shooting starts, in Northern Ireland and Spain, and we get our first glimpses of the characters as they will appear next year and the scenes we will witness in the final season of Game of Thrones.
