We have some fresh photos today, taken by an Instagram user of Game of Thrones filming in Ballintoy, Northern Ireland. The photos appears to be of actors costumed as Ironmen, by the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

The actors/extras don’t appear to be filming at the time of the photo, given where they are standing, and how.

Our sources yesterday confirmed for us that a major Iron Islands scene was shot there in Ballintoy, with new season six actor Pilou Asbæk as Euron Greyjoy. Filming is expected to continue around Ballintoy Harbour for the rest of the week.

Jumping back over to Spain, where Girona is ready to begin filming, we have a fresh update on what’s going to happen there. Maisie Williams is reportedly in town, but we have more indicators that the city will serve as King’s Landing as well with a new photo (shown below).

DiariDeGirona reports that a scene is planned for filming that involves a horse walking up and down the steps of Girona Cathedral. Preparations have been made for the scene to be safely done. Shooting around the Cathedral is expected from September 11th to the 16th.

Other preparations are being made in the city including costume fittings for extras. Trailers and trucks have filled an area set side in Devesa Park. DiariDeGirona also mentions that at Palau Firal, the fittings continue with local extras being dressed as characters such as “monks, indigents, merchants, prostitutes and House Tyrell soldiers.”

The set preparations continue, of course. This piece turned up on Twitter, labeled “King’s Landing Gates” and “Girona.”

    6. Just a thought, if Euron is filming at the rope bridge might they be intending to

      have a row between him and Balon on it, in which he tips him over, rather than a storm doing the deed

      be Ironborn finding certain remains?

    9. Sue – did you get confirmation that this Pilou Asbæk is definitely Euron? Most people are getting hung up with the age difference between him and the 70 year old actor that plays Balon (Patrick Malahide).

      And regarding this priest? Was this the same character that you reported before from one of your earlier castings?

      Thanks for your outstanding work.

      Yeah ”most people” is 3-5 people who judge this guy before they even saw him in the role. I wouldn’t call this ”most people”.

      Nah, I’m sure he will rock this boat as Euron! I trust the casting.

      I’m just a bit confused about the “rugged pirate, in his 30s, lots of speaking” role. Sure he isn’t THAT? And we all get distracted from the real Euron??? *tenfoldtinfoil* Was there casting news on this role already?

      Don’t expect much from Jon’s arc in season 6. He’s either dead for good or will have less than 15 minutes of screentime. Unless Kit shows up in Belfast again at some point in the near future, I’m leaning towards the possibility that all of Jon’s stuff has already been filmed.

    14. mattpeto,

      Here you go, from the previous Euron thread. In the wiki Euron is said to be born in or before 267AC so by the time of AFFC/ADWD, or where we are now, he would be around 33 years old.

      Thanks to: Tywin on the Hill, for finding this

    15. Mihnea,

      Wow. Didn’t realize that. That would make Victarion & Damphair probably between 30-32 yrs old then. So is Balon Greyjoy just A LOT older than his brothers? Hmm. Interesting. It’s def not unheard of for nephews and uncles to be close in age.

    17. Mihnea,

      Those are book ages, though. Most characters in that generation are a good 15-20 years older on the show.

      In the books Ned was born in 263, which would have made him 36 in the first season. It’s hard to use book ages as a guide for the show.

        Quote  Reply

    18. Mihnea,

      If you think about it, just about every character in the books seem older than they actually are. I always envisioned Balon’s brothers in their early to late 40’s and Balon pretty much how he is on the show.

    19. Matt,

      I tought Euron was around 36-42, while Vic, around 32-34. But weird thing, I always imagined Vic younger then Aeron, probaly because how Aeron looks.

    20. Mihnea,

      Book info below:

      There were nine sons born to Quellon Greyjoy (Balon’s dad, Theon’s grandpa]. Only four lived to see the pages of ASoIaF. Not going back to the source material to find the names, but the Greyjoy brothers that died were the ones that filled the age gap between Balon and Euron, Victarion, and Aeron (Damphair).

        Quote  Reply

    21. Mihnea,

      That was my point. If you age him up like most of the people that are close to the same age in the book (Ned, Robert, Stannis, Cat), you would expect him to be somewhere around 50 or 60 in the show.

      Not that it really matters. I’ll bet they picked the right guy for the part.

      Quibbling about age conversions between adaptations of a story makes me feel a bit like I’m trying to figure out who would win in a fight between the Hulk and Thor. They’ll (hopefully) pick the outcome that works best for the story the want to tell.

      LOL, good point. Book Tyrion sounds like a creepy old man, when in reality he’s only 26 or 27 in the books. I think I mentally age up most of the older generation–Ned, Cat, Cersei, Jaime, the Hound, etc.–to their show ages, anyway.

      Even if they age him, he would be around his early 40’s, no where near 50’s or 60’s. I can easly see Pilou play a man in his early 40’s.

      But i wont talk about this anymore, I made my point preaty clear, I belive. Age does not matter one bit, If he can act the role, wich I have no doubt, I fully trust the casting department, thats all that matters.

      Not sure if you’re talking about the book or an invented excuse for the series, but in the books

      the Greyjoys that died where the older ones, born from Quellon (interesting fella, BTW)’s first wife. There is no mention of miscarriages or stillborns between Balon, Euron, Victarion, and Aeron.

      I think of it this way; if he’s not British–when most of the southern Westeros characters who aren’t Dornish are played by Brits (like the other Greyjoys)–and he’s really young, he must have blown away the casting people to get the part.

    29. Firannion,

      I like that idea. A lot! Cersei losing both her remaining children so quickly. One due to her contriving to imprison his wife and bro-in-law. The second due to her and Jaime with a sneak operation to “abduct” Myrcella from the Martells.

    30. M: if he’s not British–when most of the southern Westeros characters who aren’t Dornish are played by Brits (like the other Greyjoys)

      His nationality is probably the most irrelevant thing here. He’s an actor. He should be able to play whatever the role requires (outside of, you know, a completely different race). Anyone griping about his nationality (not saying you, per se) would probably think an Irish actor couldn’t possibly play Abraham Lincoln.

      Not all non-English actors are able to speak with the right English accent. That’s why it could be important in which country he grew up or which country he is from.

      Balon falling off of the bridge. That means Euron is coming to claim the crown. The question is, what episode will it be in? Will they start off the season with the death of Balon to introduce Euron? D&D do like dark openings.

      I agree. It would be fitting since he is such a weak king. He falls off his horse trying to rescue Margary. In like a really stupid heroic way, the horse tries to jump over people and there is a mishap. He falls off and dies.

    35. Well, in the books Tommen is 8. Hard to be a strong king at 8. In the show, he may be older but he’s been infantilized by Cersei. Not to mention he was kind of tortured by Joff, but then again, who wasn’t?

      I still think he’s dead, but not by falling off a horse. I think it will be something Cersei-induced or Cersei-related. He’ll drink poison meant for her. Someone will kill him to punish her. Tommen’s function seems to be to further push Cersei towards madness. So his death will be something that does that.

      I expect a much smaller screentime for Jon in season 6 and it’s understandable. With the news of season 8 basically confirmed, it could be split into two parts. There’s plenty of other things to do and develop. I’m thrilled with Euron and Iron Islands. Lack of screentime (a bit of material and some performances were below the par) was one of the reason, why Dorne was such a letdown for many fans in season 5.

    40. Mihnea: I think we need to let go, The location brings little to the story, the entire point of that scene is Euron taking control, not where he does it.

      The spectacular location was the only reason I hoped to see the Kingsmoot included in the show. Otherwise, the Ironborn (with the exception of Asha and the Reader) all just seem like trope randomly destructive Vikings to me. Been there, got pillaged by that. Unless the dragonhorn really works (which I doubt), or Euron’s attack on Oldtown is truly critical to how events play out at the Citadel, I could have been perfectly happy to see the whole Ironborn plotline dropped. (And I’m not even one of those people who hated AFfC and ADoD.)

    41. Just had a random thought. What if the Red Priestess they’re casting is an amalgamation of the dusky woman and Moqorro? Perhaps as a companion to Euron as she/he was to Victarion? Just thinking that we don’t really know where this other priestess is going to be!

    42. Interesting news! I’m personally hoping at least part of the havoc that will probably take place in KL is caused by a Dornish character (who, I pray to the seven, will be better developed this season). The Iron Islands story will probably be interesting too. I hated Vic with all my forces but I do think the others have potential. I hope they give Gemma some good material to work with.

      TheTouchOfFrost,

      We kind of do. An audition for the part leaked, don’t you remember? She is in Mereen, interacting with Tyrion and the others.

      Okay, granted, Daniel Day-Lewis played a magnificent, thoroughly convincing Lincoln, after reportedly spending a year or more preparing for the part. But consider this: Another very fine actor from the UK, Tom Wilkinson, who had a great track record of playing American politicos including Benjamin Franklin, Joe Kennedy Sr. and James Baker, was utterly unconvincing as President Johnson in the otherwise-great ‘Selma.’ To any American old enough to remember the LBJ era, he sounded absolutely nothing like the iconic Texas twang of that larger-than-life figure, and it definitely detracted from the film. So acting talent by itself won’t necessarily nail an interpretation.

    44. Chekhov’sOlly,

      I wonder if Margaery and Loras will also demand trials by combat and if they’ll require one each, since their crimes are linked

      This is an interesting thought; to add to this…would the faith allow Loras to represent himself, he is after all one of the best fighters in Westeros and therefore they might try some technicality to prevent this scenario, since the chances of him winning are fairly large.

      But it would still be an indirect result of something poorly-thought-out that Cersei did that backfired on her. The question is, would she have enough insight to realize that her own petty jealousy and vindictiveness toward Margaery were to blame, so that she would feel regret? Or would she act like a typical narcissist and blame it on everyone else?

      I think it would be wonderfully ironic to create a parallel between Sansa’s naive knights-and-ladies fantasies and Tommen’s mostly book-learned notions of what it means to be a strong ruler, by having him take a doomed action inspired by the exploits of some bold prince or knight out of history.

      I never imagined Tyrion to be more than 30 in the books. I thought that it was clear that he was still a young man by modern standards.

      Oh I hadn’t thought of that, that the drama could be set in Braavos and the flags be a facet of the scenery.

      JCDavis,

      I’ve been listening to some GoT book audio and while I mainly like Roy Dotrice’s voice his “stage” Welsh accent for Tyrion annoys me and I usually like a Welsh accent. I don’t think that does the character any favours, but maybe you read a real book rather than listen to audio. Oberyn sounding “stage oirish” gets my goat too.

      You’d think, but then, Mace came to Braavos without any guards of his own, as far as I recall, and he’s representing King Tommen.

      Honestly, now that I think about it, I find it somewhat hard to believe that things in King’s Landing are going to calm down to the point where royals will be taking trips to the theater.

      Hi-Fi,

      Because that’s what Harys Swyft does in the book, and the continued presence of that delegation may be plot-relevant? Beyond which, Mace on the show is a comic relief character, so I don’t think the writers would place any priority on bringing him back. Olenna is fulfilling the role of the Tyrell heavy; Mace would just be a clown around the fringes.

      Tyrion is hardly “creepy” in Dragons: he’s almost suicidally depressed and almost always heavily intoxicated. That’s not “morally gray”: that’s just someone who in our world would be prescribed a bucket of prozac every day. But that’s his contribution to the story: he has to dig his way out of that and re-attain Tyrion (or something higher).

      And, let’s face it: who here has not done things that he/she didn’t later think of with embarrassment while on a prolonged bender?

That’s why any good director worth their paycheck will tell you 60% of their job is done in casting (I think Spielberg actually put that number to it).

      Can we pleas let the “Tyrion is a rapist”debate die? Tyrion did not take that slave girl from her home and sell her into a life of bondage, he wasn’t even rough with her. Tyrion only pointed out her obvious disgust with him: Sex workers are often disgusted by the people they service. I don’t see where Tyrion raped her. It seems you have a bone to pick with slavery, as slaves can’t say no to anything. Planetos is not our world, but sex with a sex worker does not make someone a rapist.

    66. Big Mac: Glad to see Loras will probably be getting a bit more to do this season. Hopefully, they can develop his character a bit more beyond being “the gay guy”.

      Don’t forget Loras’s future in the show is (theoretically) more valuable than the books as he is the sole heir of Highgarden.

      He also might be pretty close to death in the books

      aurane waters,

      Can we pleas let the “Tyrion is a rapist”debate die? Tyrion did not take that slave girl from her home and sell her into a life of bondage, he wasn’t even rough with her. Tyrion only pointed out her obvious disgust with him: Sex workers are often disgusted by the people they service. I don’t see where Tyrion raped her. It seems you have a bone to pick with slavery, as slaves can’t say no to anything. Planetos is not our world, but sex with a sex worker does not make someone a rapist.

      I agree!

      Finn Jones talked about going to a deeper and darker place with the character. Looking forward to Loras being salty and bitter about his fate.

      Gravemaster,
      ewwww at him saying that cersei deserved the walk of shame. i dislike him now

      Considering he plays a character whom Cersei served up to the Faith to be imprisoned, probably tortured, and possibly executed, for no other reason than to fuck with his sister, I’d say Finn Jones is perfectly entitled to claim that Cersei deserved the Walk of Shame. TV Cersei used Loras’ sexuality as a way of not only endangering his life, but also of demeaning and humiliating him (to hurt Margaery). It seems fitting that the Faith uses her sexuality against her by parading her naked through the streets to be called a whore and to be subjected to crude, sexual comments. Karma’s a bitch.

    69. Tywin of the Hill,

      If they were including that character, I don’t see why they’d make him young. It’s a bit role whose sole point is that Yara has been married against her will to an old man. I mean, sure, he could be young, but that would just lessen the incongruous and insulting nature of the union.

    70. aurane waters, M,
      In the interview Gravemaster linked to it says “he wanted Cersei to get her comeuppance: “I bloody well hope so, she deserves it. She needs to be taught a lesson.”” I read that as meaning he wants something to happen to her in the future, rather than that it already has (which would be “she needed to be taught a lesson”). Unless I missed a bit he doesn’t mention the walk of shame at all so I was quite surprised you both think that’s what he was talking about.

      Not trying to cause an argument here, I just thought I’d mention it, especially as many WotWers have English as a second language and might not pick up the distinction between past and future tenses 🙂

      (Also, if you read it very carefully the preceding paragraph doesn’t actually make sense as there are some words missing. It doesn’t say what they think it does, but that’s just me being mischievous. And of course guarantees that I’ve made an error I haven’t noticed in this post! 😉 )

      Thanks for working so hard for all of us fans of the books and the show!!!!!

      I usually view spoilers here and there, but this year….after all the ‘John Snow is dead’ business from the show producers…..I’m pissed. Payback’s a b*tch!!! As far as I’m concerned, I hope the entire season is spoiled…..the fan’s know how to play the “game” too, especially us book readers!!! I say “You want play?”….. We will take the Throne:)

      Thank you Watchers on the Wall!!!

    72. According to a comment on Alfie’s Insragram account, he was filming on the rope bridge- could this mean he has a hand in Balons demise? Or perhaps this is simply a shot of him returning to Pyke..
