Reports have been coming in steadily over the past few weeks concerning the Game of Thrones filming in Spain, and the action scene underway in Malpartida de Cáceres. Cameras are rolling even over the weekend, with hundreds of extras turning up in Malpartida’s Los Barruecos yesterday to continue filming what is sure one of season 7’s biggest scenes.
El Periodico Extremadura has new images from yesterday’s shooting in Barrueco de Arriba confirming more details from recent spoiler reports, so keep on reading to view the photos!
With these new photos, details of the major ambush scene speculated and spoiled for the last few weeks are now confirmed. As you can see below, a horde of Dothraki are attacking the caravans that previously were seen carrying away goods from Highgarden. El Periodico Extremadura’s story refers to eyewitness reports from filming, describing the scene as an attack, with a large number of horses charging toward an imaginary enemy. Imaginary for the moment- the target will be added later, it seems.
Los Siete Reinos was able to confirm other aspects of the ambush spoilers this week, including the Lannisters marching with the loaded caravans. And so the pieces of the puzzle are adding up: the caravans traveling, the Lannisters afoot, the Dothraki charging…and there are still weeks of shooting left in Barrueco de Arriba, so we may hear more about cast sightings soon. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jerome Flynn, and more have been rehearsing and spotted around Caceres, but Emilia Clarke was spotted in Belfast two days ago. Can we hope for Daenerys’ return to Spain in the near future?
