We expected to hear more news of Game of Thrones filming in Iceland sometime in February, but the fun has kicked off already, with two main cast members sighted at the close of January. Yesterday reports surfaced on social media of Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington being spotted arriving together at the Reykjavík–Keflavík Airport.
Just talked to Kit Harington in Iceland … not impressed 💔😢 #brokemyheart

One fan apparently snapped a photo (Update: thanks to @yeahclarke for providing the source of the original pic!) . Here are Kit and Emilia arriving:

UPDATE: And then the pair were spotted again today by the same Instagrammer!

With crew members arriving in Iceland as well, we can expect filming to begin any moment. It’s a cold and tough environment for shooting, and the show has to work quickly. There’s not a large amount of info about this year’s filming in the country, so we’re left to speculate as to what Jon Snow and Daenerys could be doing in such a snowy, icy locale. After all, wintry Iceland usually serves as places beyond the Wall for Game of Thrones. Could the duo be going back, as dangerous as that is? Or is it possible that with the advent of winter and the march south of the Night King, the frozen landscape we associate with beyond the Wall is coming closer to Winterfell? Just a thought. We’ll keep an eye out for more cast sightings and shooting, as location filming is always an exciting time, and Iceland is a gorgeous place!
