It’s been a whirlwind for Croatia this year when it comes to Game of Thrones– from off the table, to back into the game, to fully confirmed with cast sightings at dizzying speed. When Embassy Films put out a mysterious casting call for extras at the end of November, it was unclear whether it was GoT, but fans were hopeful, given how important the country has been in shaping the look of King’s Landing. Dubrovnik’s Old Town is the capital of Westeros (though Spain is helping out this year as well), and now the queen has returned.

The Dubrovnik Times reports filming will take place in the city for three days, and spotted Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Hafthor Bjornsson arriving at the location to start shooting scenes for the new season.

Swing by The Dubrovnik Times to view more images of the cast arriving!

N1 has acquired a beautiful batch of photos from today’s filming on the city’s fortress walls, showing Headey and Coster-Waldau, along with a Thrones director. We’re also treated to a great view of the new armor for Cersei’s Kingsguard, worn by a couple of those aforementioned extras.

Coster-Waldau appears to be taking aim at the camera:

Here we see director Jeremy Podeswa talking with Headey. Podeswa is directing the premiere and the finale of season 7. We don’t know which episode this is from, but if I had to guess, I’d put money on the premiere. And is that the back of the Mountain’s head I spy?

Bjornsson was certainly on set:

The Kingsguard, under their new queen, have updated armor to match her severe black and silver designs. The emblem on the breastplate is similar to Cersei’s crown. I love this look, it’s so striking!

We get a better look at the location itself in these last photos. We can see why they returned to Dubrovnik- the city walls with the sea view are very hard to recreate elsewhere.

Here’s hoping there’s more over the next few days- Croatia has always been very good for fans, and wonderful for Game of Thrones! As for the scene being filmed, season 6 ended with Jaime appearing apprehensive about Cersei’s bold move in claiming the throne for herself. If this scene is from the premiere, I don’t imagine this is a loving follow-up discussion.

      I won’t say I dislike the helmet design but it is a little unusual. It gives me a Masters of the Universe vibe, like Man-At-Arms or Man-E-Faces or something… 😛

    5. Nice!

      OT: SAG Awards nominations are in and GoT is up for Drama Series and Dinklage is up for actor.

      No Ensemble Series nom this year though? That’s crazy. Its been nominated every year and I was hoping they’d finally win it this year.

    6. Will we get the Jaime & Cersei break up next season? Not only is it about time but the actors don’t go well together either. Lack of chemistry.

    7. Jack Bauer 24,

      There is no drama series nomination. There’s ensemble nominations for the cast and the stunt doubles.

      GoT got cast ensemble, stunt ensemble and Tyrion’s nomination.

      I know….it looks like she scalped Tommen and is wearing it like a hat.

    9. Clob: According to EW’s list they did…along with The Crown, Downton, Stranger Things and Westworld.I believe that’s accurate as I read elsewhere they got 3 nominations.
      http://www.ew.com/article/2016/12/14/2017-sag-awards-nominations

      Yeah I see they got 3. One for Ensemble, Male actor, and Stunt.

      I didn’t realize they didn’t have a “Best Drama Series” award, I guess their main one is the Drama Ensemble?

    10. Did Los Siete Reinos eliminate its comments section? I wanted to check out opinions on the new Lannister outfits and the section is gone.

    11. I do think Lena looks much prettier with the long hair/wig… but I’m a lover of long hair on ladies to begin with. 🙂 I’ve never thought Lena has looked better than she did as Gorgo on 300.

    12. Apollo,

      OMG, looking through the pics

      I see Ellaria and Tyene chained and being led through the crowd. Euron is definitely arriving in King’s Landing with a hell of a bounty. He’s also leading Yara on a leash. 🙁

    13. Apollo,

      Wow, this new pictures of Yara and Euron (damn horse armour !) are exciting !

      Okay, I try to stay away from most spoilers (but I already know too much) but yeah, this parade could be a very dark and epic scene !

    14. Love the new armour, the only thing is I thought Cersei would embrace her Lannister side more since there are no longer any Bartheon’s in her life aka gold instead she’s more going for black the Targaryen color that Dany and her people are also wearing this season.
      Are Dany and Cersei gonna have a fashion off in the Dragon Pit on who looks better in black?

    15. sebaciel,

      Did you see how badass Euron’s horses look? I thought Ironborn were non-fancy people like the Northerners and live in a cold and wet climate 😛

    16. Flayed Potatoes,

      The question though is Why is Cersei in black? Is it to match her heart lol? Why aren’t her Queensguard wearing her house’s sigil like they are meant to? Jamie stands out as he is the only person in Gold now.

      Why should Dany though give up one of her main house colors to Cersei? She already shares dark colors with Stark and Greyjoy. Red is a bit more iffy if not done the right way it can be a bit tacky. Besides going by what her brother wore at her wedding and illustrations Targaryen’s wear mainly black with a splash of red, elegantly done but not overpowering.

        Quote  Reply

    17. Mel,

      Dany doesn’t own the color black. Red outfits have been worn on the show and they were very pretty. Cersei is also in mourning, so the black is expected. And maybe she wants to distance herself from the other Lannisters in her family. Who knows… The queensguard have her house sigil on their shoulders. The thing on their chest looks like the same design Cersei had on her crown in the season 6 finale. I think Clapton called it a deconstructed lion or something.

      Katie,
      Masspsychosis,

      Cersei might have decided to keep the hair short of course, but I don’t think a lot of time passed between the walk of shame and the scenes these pictures belong to.

      LEAK INFO

      Cersei will find out that she is pregnant in early episodes, I think either ep1 or ep2, because the leaks say that she will tell Jaime immediately and Jaime probably leaves KL in ep2 and doesn’t come back before the final episodes. She got pregnant just before Jaime leaves for Riverrun (well the baby may not really be Jaime’s, in the books it probably isn’t, so she might have gotten pregnant later too but she will claim it’s Jaime’s and that she got pregnant before he leaves, so it doesn’t matter).

      So my guess is that she is around 2 months pregnant when Jaime returns to KL in season 6 finale (or maybe 1 if she actually got pregnant later) and she may be 2 months pregnant in these pictures, definitely not more than 3.

      In season 7, Jaime and Cersei plot in KL probably starts right after season 6 finale, and this is ep1. If Jaime has been away for 2 months, I think about 3 months passed between the walk of shame and these scenes.

      Different storylines progress in different paces, and it may not mean that those events happen at the same time just because we watched them at the same time. Jaime-Cersei plot in season 6 covered only 3 months of time span, but I think the north and Essos plots covered more, maybe at least 6 months. That would explain Varys’ crossing oceans.

    19. But why is Cersei not wearing that same coronation dress if it’s ep 1? And why is she not wearing her crown? And it looks like they are maybe looking at the sea as if some ship is arriving?? Lol its killing me not knowing if its ep 1 or 7. At least we know the euron leak is ep 3.

    20. Is anyone else wondering why there is a canon there? I thought they weren’t invented yet. We’ve yet to see one anywhere on the show.

      A common response might be “perhaps one of Qyburn’s new inventions.” Maybe it’s not a prop but an item normally at that site that they didn’t move yet. shrug

    22. Mio,

      Well it’s not like it’s the same day 🙂 Maybe a week later after her coronation, or something like that.

      They may be looking at the arrival of Euron’s fleet.

    23. Flayed Potatoes,

      I think most Lannister’s are dead now, we lost Kevan and Lancel in the wildfire explosion so Jamie, Cersei and Tyrion are the only ones really left. So unless Jamie and Tyrion have children their house will die out completely.

      I know Dany doesn’t own Black, it looks cool but I miss all the bright colors all the houses used to wear but now they all seem to be wearing black.

      Targaryen fans don’t want Dany to wear just Black or just Red, they want her to wear the proper black clothes with the side red cape in the illustrations of other Targaryen’s, they’ve all been waiting years for it because she is probably the only character who has never worn her house colors before. It almost seemed like she made her house color Blue for a long time which the designer said she wore for Drogo’s tribal markings. I’m sure people would like Jon to wear the same but I don’t see that ever happening honestly.

    24. innocence,

      Is Euron also in Kings Landing in ep 1? Would kind of make sense if he meets up with Cersei before

      capturing Sand Snakes for her.

      I havent really been active in the spoiler department, but was he leaks by the reddit guy confirmed to be true?

        Quote  Reply

    25. Mio,

      Some people still don’t believe the reddit leak but I’m convinced that it’s true. All set spoilers supported the leak so far, and nothing the leaker said was debunked. Of course there may be some things s/he didn’t mention or maybe interpreted wrong, but overall the leak is reliable in my opinion, although everything wasn’t confirmed yet.

      Euron may be arriving in ep1, and maybe the naval battle will happen in ep2, and Euron’s parade in KL ep3.

      Mio,

      That was more of a deep dark navy almost like what Dany was wearing in her conversation with Tyrion in the last episode.
      Then they both wore a full on black outfit in the last episode Cersei when she used wildfire and Dany when she was on the ship sailing to Westeros.

    27. Cersei’s Queensguard = The Return of the Shredder. On the bright side, she’ll be ready when the Ninja Turtles come for her. And she’ll never have to ask for a can opener.

    28. Mel,

      She was wearing black because Myrcella died and now she’s wearing it because Tommen died.

      Mel,

      The Lannisters have a lot of cousins as mentioned in both books and show, so they won’t die out if Jaime and Tyrion have no kids.

      Clob,

      I was there 2 weeks ago and the canons were there.

      So you believe or are confirming then that those canons are a real historical piece of the site and not a show prop? Makes sense to me.

    30. Exciting! Here’s hoping for an early and severe breakup fight, lol!

      The “queensguard” armor design is really cool. of course, these aren’t hte “real” queensguard… 😉

    31. The new costumes are gorgeous!

      I see that Cersei is wearing another large ring. It resembles the one from Winds of Winter, which looks like it was carved from a block of salt. A sly hint from Ms. Clapton that Cersei would become Euron’s salt wife?

      Joffrey or Tommen didn’t always walk around with a crown. Usually they would take them off in the throne room.
      Besides they weren’t exactly shooting in the pic just going over lines

      I’m happy we’ll be seeing Jorah again; I’ve always felt so sorry for him, he’s such a dejected puppy 🙁 It’ll be interesting to see what Dany does with him now lol
