Over the last week, Game of Thrones has been shooting at Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia. After recent flooding in the area, there had been worries that filming would be affected, perhaps halted altogether.
Luckily, despite a volume of 38 liters of flood water per square meter, filming was able to proceed as planned both yesterday and today. Many fans were happy to report the news on Twitter.

In cast news, we’ve heard from our sources in Belfast that Hafthor Bjornsson was in town earlier this week for a day or two. It’s unknown whether he was filming or doing a costume fitting or rehearsals.
His character, Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain, was last seen in season four in very poor shape, in the care of Qyburn the disgraced maester.
