Game of Thrones preps for a major scene and gets mischievous

Game of Thrones has been readying the grand Girona Cathedral for a major scene filming this week, and people have spotted a great deal of crew activity, in front of and around the cathedral. It seems the crew has even gotten mischievous with onlookers.

One twitter user has taken video footage of the statues in front of the Cathedral being covered with seven-pointed stars, in preparation for filming over the next few days.

Many windows and walls are blocked with green screens, suggesting the show will be altering the view looking out if scenes are shot in those particular rooms.


Locals and tourists who stopped by Girona’s Old Town to check out the filming found an unusual sight today. Game of Thrones production has taken it upon themselves to surprise the people staring at the preparations so intently, with a well-placed White Walker dummy:

I’m pretty sure White Walkers haven’t made it to King’s Landing, Braavos, or Oldtown quite yet. Very funny, guys!

    1. That’s hilarious…with the levels of stress that must be happening with all the prep and filming, it’s nice to know they have fun with it.

    2. Little by little, it’s starting to look like the Great Sept!

      Also, Diario di Girona has a few new stuff to say about the now famous scene in the stairs to the Great Sept:

      – It will be filmed on Tuesday the 15th (but rehersals will be tomorrow.)
      – There are three main characters involved: King Tommen, Jaime, and Margaery, who will mount Jaime’s steed after being freed. That last tricky thing is what they will be rehearsing tomorrow Monday.
      – Interestingly, Tommen will emerge into the scene from inside the Sept.
      – A camera will be placed in the Sant Feliu belltower, which will be looking at the top of the stairs. Considering that’s where they are placing all the props, it seems that’s where the main action will be focused; at the top of the stairs.
      – Surprisingly, the cathedral’s facade won’t be completely CGI-d over, as they claim that the statues of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, which are at each side of the cathedral’s gate, will be transformed into something else with the use of props. This means they’ll use the rest of the facade —well, the gate, at any rate.
      – There will be Tyrell soldiers and either Gold Cloaks or Lannister soldiers —or both; the report wrongly assumes they are one and the same.

      I honestly hope so. But I don’t really expect it. Visual continuity has never been their forte, not even when it’s all CGI (the Great Sept CG model has changed pretty much every season.) To be fair, most people don’t notice, of course.

    5. mau,

      Come on,does anybody even pay that much attention to the places ? I barely remembered how the KL of the first season looked like until i rewatched it recently for the 6th time . Take the Walk of Shame for example,what do you think people remembers more,how the Sept looked like or the fact Cersei was walking naked and being humiliated ?

      90% od people won’t notice, but I will, and I will bother me on rewatch.

      They cared for the continuity of doors in WF, but they dont about this?

      Those stairs become iconic in S5 with WoS and now they will just change them? It’s like recasting for me.

    7. mau,

      I feel you. Still, most of the facade will be CGI. The only thing that won’t match is that these stairs are much, much grander than those in season five, and that they detailing around the gate is much more baroque and intricate. The building is also a different color (white, instead of sandy), but that can be changed with color correction. Let’s wait and see until we see the final stuff in April, or in the trailers, before judging too harshly.

      If you want your own headcanon… hey, maybe there are six gates (one of the seven is all a window, but the rest could have a gate.) Maybe we’ve been seeing different sides all along! Not really, but, hey, if it bothers you as it does me, this rationalization may help.

    9. I see no problem at all,CGI will make the top look the same as it always had.We will have some seven-pointed stars at the bottom as we had before in Dubrovnik and stairs can easily look the same as the ones in the last seasons.From what I’ve seen in Girona so far it can pass as the shows King’s Landing with no problems at all.

      The trouble is the city and the sept have never had an “always”; there has never been consistency, even with the fully CGI models that don’t depend on the location at all. In season 1 the Sept was only glimpsed, but it was completely different from the “final” design we saw at last in season 3. Then in season 4 and 5 the towers were much taller, and the facade was much more intricate. The Baelor statue has always jumped around or even disappeared, sometimes within the season —sometimes within two consecutive shots.

      This is nit-picky, I know. I’m not demanding anything. I’m just pointing out the inconsistency.

      Maybe they will use the outer walls of the Alcazaba of Almería instead of the Klis Fortress for the Meereen exterior shots… they do look quite similar, in a way. The other stuff is usually either in-doors or in narrow streets. We haven’t really seen much of Meereen as a city.

    12. How much is that Walker in the window? The one with the scraggley hair.

      (To the tune of How Much is that Puppy in the Window.)

      I might be tinfoily here, but perhaps they are using the Walker to see how it films when they have someone watching out the window. As if they are filming someone watching what is happening below.

      Or they are assholes. Either way.

      Tommen is going to convert to the Faith Militant along with Margaery. That’s… not good in a very good way!

    14. Luka Nieto,

      Well my theory has always been that Tommen is converted to the Faith Militant. So maybe I was right all along? First Tommen, then Margarey. Although I suspect Tommen converts first, and genuinely. Margarey follows with her eyes wide open and a plan.

      Why would they drag a Walker costume all the way to Girona? All I can think is that there may be A Sam nightmare or flashback scene. I’m guessing those costumes are too expensive and fragile to be dragged all the way to Spain to play a joke on fans.

    17. In case anyone missed it, Ramon posted some higher res versions of his behind the scenes photos in the previous thread and I updated my zoomed in look at the armour (including the body parts which I completely ignored the first time). They look really plain which makes me think they are for the Tyrells, who wear lots of stuff over the top of their’s, rather than have the decoration on the metal itself like the Gold Cloaks and Lannisters. Should all become clear in the next few days but hey, some of us are impatient! 😉

      I know there are slight differences but it’s not until you see all pics that it looks so obvious. I guess you could always say that the Sept has seven sides/ entrances (although that doesn’t explain away the upper portions of the building).

      Maybe the White Walker got stuck on the prop truck by accident or they brought it along for armor fittings. It looks to be a dressmakers’ dummy with a foam latex chest piece and mask. Not terribly expensive to do.

      It doesn’t look like it’s wearing much of a costume, to me. With as many photos as have been taken of what’s going on, in addition to having some fun with the locals, they probably think it would be hilarious if all of a sudden there were rumors of White Walkers in the south just because they put that in the window.

      It’s a statue. Take a closer look: it’s not even as high fidelity as the costumes they actually do use on the show; it’s only the upper body; and instead of being a flexible costume it’s a rigid statue. It may be a promotional prop or something, but it’s certainly not an actual costume for the show.

      As seen in the wedding scene in Season 4, the Sept of Baelor has multiple gates that lead to the outside. You can explain away the different stairs with them using a different angle to approach the Sept. The old stairs might just be around the corner !! 🙂

      I was just trying to point out the “White Walker’s” torso appears not to be wearing anything (dammit, there go D&D bringing unnecessary nudity into the show, once again. 😉 ), so they didn’t drag down costumes.

      Thanks for that closeup, though. You can see (or at least it appears to my eye) how off the face is.

      I imagine they have named him Fred or Alan and a few of the more herb-indulgent prop people drag him everywhere. It’s a hard plastic torso on a stool with a wig on it, not marble or stone.

He’s looking for someone to share his death with and maybe kill a few children so they can rise from the dead and be a family. Don’t let the blue skin turn you off, he’s hot in the sheets.

      Hey, White Walkers need lovin’ too! Because of the name I’m now imagining they all have a strong deep south of the USA accents, which wasn’t what I’d initially thought, but the story does nothing if not throw in really unexpected twists every so often. Not sure they’d see it as murdering humans, maybe just converting them to their cause or even possibly ‘recycling’ them 😉

      EDIT: yeah, Queenie (hi honey *waving*) is right, the amazing blue eyes are a selling point.

      I agree, though. The Sept of Baelor is very iconic and visual continuity matters, especially in the short span between season 5 and 6. I understand the continuity issues after season 1 because the budget has increased so much that they can afford better CG and better locations. But I wish they could have kept the same KL filming locations as the previous 4 seasons. It’s a shame really.

      I always liked the good old “Daario is a Faceless Man.” one.

      That would definitely work. However, I was so glad Daario was recast (to say I didn’t care for the first one is an understatement), all I had to do was re-watch the end of season 3, hear the lines in Michiel Huisman’s voice, with his delivery, then add his face and physicality. It worked beautifully, at least for me.

      It bothered the hell out of me, too. It was just easier for me to get over because I was so relieved. Of course, doing it the way I did it, I found myself annoyed they didn’t just go with Huisman, in the first place. Then again, it seemed like they were initially going for a more overtly cocky Daario, and Huisman’s is not cocky like that. His Daario does have some cockiness, but for that’s mitigated by the charm with which he imbues him.

      I am most definitely not a Stannis fan-anything, and as for ‘pussified,’ I was born that way. It was the homophobia implicit in the term that is utterly unacceptable, regardless of which character you wish to put down in that manner. Get with the times, kid. It IS offensive to most people. If you’re going to use terms like that, you damn well better expect to be called on it.

      ‘Idiot,’ on the other hand, I think has come a long way from the days when it was used as a textbook classification for the least functional level of cognitive disorders. I doubt that most people under 40 have any clue that it once meant that. It has become so much more generic – and a person may act in a willfully idiotic manner, as is sometimes demonstrated even here.

      Well, look at it this way: if it was part of the show, then there is no way that they would have put it out for all to see.

    62. God of tits and wine: the walker in the window could be on a solo mission similar to what mance did when he went to check out winterfell by himself.

      Hey, as far as I can remember, the existence of Faceless Walkers hasn’t been ruled out as yet! We know so little of their culture; they could have spies…and garbage haulers and insurance salespeople and beauticians and mechanics and dentists and…

      Yeah that’s what I assumed. I couldn’t even think of any good (or not so good) reason for it to be there. Waaaayyy too early in the series I’d think. But I still find it really weird this half-Walker ended up thousands of miles away from any Walker filming site.

      I don’t think the two are bad onscreen together… but either way, you won’t have to worry about the chemistry between Dany and Daario for much longer because I’m pretty sure Jorah is gonna gut him while they’re out looking for her next season.

      According to the corresponding article, filming at Santa Florentina Castle (Horn Hill) did finish yesterday, yet they claim they will go back this Saturday the 19th. Has this been reported anywhere else?

      The production unit is probably needed for Girona filming this week, then they switch back to Castell Florentina, as the second unit is filming in N.I.

      Concerning the lack of casting news for Tarly’s, I wonder if D&D are playing their own game and want fans to discover the whom’s and what’s on their own, like all the recent casting, which was uncovered by fans. If this is the case, the clues are probably out there for anyone willing to search.

      Hope those pics aren’t by a stalker, as she doesn’t realize she’s being photographed.

      Dutch Maester,

      That’s a large green screen, damn. Also, that’s D&D and Bernadette Caulfield on the steps this morning.

      Well they have to cgi in the Dubrovnik street, if you remember, the street they filmed there continued on for many blocks. Must maintain continuity.

      So the armor were for the Tyrell knights! Interesting. We had only seen a few previously, protecting Olenna, and they looked very different. Still, I like this look a lot, in particular the hint of the Tyrell rose in the helmet. Quite clever!

      They look so big and dangerous, too.

      It appears so- I’m guessing the guys in S5 were more personal guards and these guys are the heavy artillery. Makes sense as the former were not gonna do too well in battle with only a padded jacket. Looks like Maergery (or her stand in) being shown into the palanquin?

      I do wonder why they don’t just announce the actors playing Randyll Tarly and Aeron Greyjoy. We know they’re in, so why not?

      Apollo,

      Wow. That actually looks quite a bit like the Tyrell soldiers in the Fantasy Flight Games art.

    70. I am glad to see so many people offended and calling out posters for their rude and offensive language on this site! When debating something you love it is easy to resort to insults and name calling; one of the things I really like about this site is that people genuinely seem interested in discussion, not fighting.

      Insults of any kind directed at another poster should never be okay. With characters it is harder, because they are not real, but even an imaginary characters should not described in a way that shames real people. Calling even a horrible character a ‘pussy’ or a ‘fag’ implies that those terms are bad and negative. We have so many words to describe a horrible person, why choose to use ones that also degrade someone’s self worth?

    71. If there is one thing, I like a lot about Game of Thrones, It is its soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi. I was wondering which are the 10 best songs of the series.

      Please vote for the 5 best songs of the series. See the link below:

      I think there was a report on Reddit that said the armor is for the Faith Militant glad to see the Tyrells looking so fresh and so clean.

    73. Love the heavy armor on the Tyrell soldiers, not so much the cut off shields. Definitely these are the serious troops, not the for show only ones. According to earlier reports was suppose to be a rehearsal, but never thought it would a full dress one.

    76. Really excited about all the Greyjoy,Tyrell and Tarly additions for the show.All we need now it’s a particularly character cast in Dorne and it would be perfect on all fronts.

      Well, there will be enough standing for a dragon to fly over it at some point in the next couple of seasons.

      Robb Snow: I don’t think the two are bad onscreen together…

      I think that they work well together. They are a very “relaxed” couple, which is a sign of relationship between two fairly mature people. Although Daeny is not supposed to be that old, and although most people make asses of themselves more than once early in their romantic lives (because we all are very, very stupid where these things are concerned, and wisdom is acquired only through experience!) it does make her seem a bit “wiser” in general to have her affair basically look like the sort of boyfriend/girlfriend that you have in early adulthood. I.e., it’s obviously not going anywhere, but it’s happening then and there.

      Plate armor such as the Tyrell soldiers wear were extremely expensive in the medieval age, and were privy to mostly knights, while the majority wore chain and leather.

      How much is that Walker in the window? The one with the scraggley hair.

      (To the tune of How Much is that Puppy in the Window.)

      I might be tinfoily here, but perhaps they are using the Walker to see how it films when they have someone watching out the window. As if they are filming someone watching what is happening below.

      Or they are assholes. Either way.

      I wish I had thought of that tune! Kudos to you!

      And if they were real assholes they would have posed him flipping everyone off 😉

    82. HotPinkLipstick: That’s totally working for me. Jim-Bob likes long walks on the beach, staring at the night sky and murdering humans. He’s looking for someone to share his death with and maybe kill a few children so they can rise from the dead and be a family. Don’t let the blue skin turn you off, he’s hot in the sheets.

      Fuck me. I just wrote a dating ad for a White Walker prop.

      omg! This!

      Even if you had to look that up, I’m impressed!

      Wimsey,

      That’s what it is. I was trying to pin down why I liked Dany and Daario’s bed scenes in season five, and that was why. They were just relaxed around each other; it wasn’t anything overtly sexy, or awkward, or anything. Just a couple talking to each other, who happen to be naked.
