Sam Tarly Oldtown scene filmed in Spain!

Samwell Tarly

Yesterday, Game of Thrones began the Cáceres shoot with a big season seven sequence; So elaborate, in fact, that elements of the scene continued being filmed this morning. Yet that’s not all: John Bradley has been sighted preparing for an Oldtown-set scene, appropriately enough at another of their locations in the Old Town of Cáceres.

The spoilery sequence with Euron and others took them from Plaza de los Golfines to Plaza de Santa María. This morning, another segment of this celebratory procession was filmed at Arco de la Estrella and the eponymous street to which the arch leads, which in turn connects with Santa María Square, where they filmed yesterday:

Meanwhile, John Bradley has also been sighted, and photographed by Javi Borrega:

Bradley is near the Estrella arch in the photo, but please consider he’s in fact situated at the production’s filming HQ —The legion of vans and trucks now occupying Plaza Mayor. In other words, Sam isn’t in King’s Landing —Bradley is not even filming in the picture. He is expected to film today at the Plaza de las Veletas, the only yet untouched location. We had suspected this set would be a King’s Landing marketplace and involve Davos, yet Liam Cunningham is currently in Madrid promoting the arrival of HBO in Spain.

This evening, we’ll update you on today’s shoot, the last for Game of Thrones in Spain!

    1. I wonder what Sam is doing at the tavern? Other than the

      curing of Jorah the leaker said that “Sam has been doing general dogsbody work in Old Town, but he decides in Ep 5 he’s had enough and leaves for Winterfell with Gilly and Little Sam.”

      .

    2. Are any other actors set to film with Sam?

      Meli,

      Maybe he’s having a drink. 😛 It could just be a filler scene with Gilly or some maester. The leaker didn’t give us information on all the scenes and characters.

    3. The camera’s pointed away from the way too modern looking restaurant, so I’m guessing Sam wasn’t in the tavern but had just won the Powerball and the drinks are on him. If student maesters drink anything like the medical students I went to college with, the money should be gone before sunrise.

    4. Poor Sam, still stuck wearing his quilted blacks in a subtropical climate! Should’ve grabbed a few changes of southron clothes while passing through Horn Hill.

    5. Aguero,

      Is Peter still in Spain? The last I had read about him was when he was filming at Los Barruecos.

      Meli,

      Maybe it’s just Sam ensuring Gilly gets the full Westeros experience lol. I wonder if Hannah Murray is in Spain as well?

    6. I can’t wait to see Oldtown! We got a quick glimpse of it in the distance, and inside the Citadel in 610, but it will be amazing to see more of it in season seven – and to compare the look and feel of the place with KL.

      Also looking forward to Sam’s season seven arc!

    7. If they’re celebrating Sam leading them to victory in the Quidditch World Cup, I am so opening a can of Avada Kedavra on them.

    8. Marwyn,

      My guess is because there are two different story lines being shot in the same area, but for a second there I had a bad feeling about this. ( ⚆ _ ⚆ )

    9. I hope we see a bit more of Oldtown next season, to show that there’s more than just one major city in Westeros (King’s Landingi); i.e. I hope they show that Oldtown has its own City Watch.

    10. Flayed Potatoes,

      Off-topic production spoilers

      Shouldn’t that be near wrapping up as well (don’t remember when it began but I remember WOTW saying it was a 3 week shoot)? Unless you mean Iceland.. I wonder if we’ll get any pictures there.

    11. Anyone knows what is going on with Carice and Melissandre? She has been MIA this season. WTF. They are going to kill her or something early in the season? She is the best female character.

    12. Flayed Potatoes,

      Jay Targ,

      Kit was seen in Belfast this week. Maybe the wolf hill quarry filming is still going on? It has been a long shoot already and they have yet to film in Iceland.

      I hope we get some good pics of the Iceland filming, but I don’t know if that’s likely.

      Somehow I can’t hear the phrase ‘City Watch’ without thinking of Sam Vimes and his crew in Ankh-Morpork. It would be a fun shout-out to Discworld fans if we got a brief comedy bit with some familiar-looking members of the local constabulary.

      sebaciel,

      And that’s a wrap for all spoilery pics and news .

      That truly sucks. At least Spain went out with a bang yesterday with the KL parade.

      I guess production will take a break for the holidays and then resume in studio to wrap up this S7 filming. They must have finished filming in Wolf Hill Quarry by now, so that only leaves Iceland for outdoor filming – which I doubt will yield any pictures. We got some great filming spoilers this year and I’m dreading the months of nothing that awaits us.

    15. Cersei,

      Carice just had her baby, so she probably came to film later than some of the other cast members. She also usually has indoor scenes which are shot quickly in Belfast.

      Firannion,

      Sort him in Slytherin then 😛

      No GoT, but not nothing. American Gods is supposed to premiere in the spring, last I heard. Season One is being edited now.

      And go binge-watch Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, if you haven’t seen it yet! Very bizarre and funny.

      On a completely trivial side point, that was originally a Doctor Who story that Douglas Adams wrote when he was the script editor for the show in the late 1970’s. The story was partially filmed, but never completed due to a BBC strike. Adams liked his story enough that he rewrote it into the book.

    18. Could this be a stop-off at Braavos on the way back north? Hopefully not- as I was really hoping to see a lot more of Oldtown. But can’t imagine why there’s a Braavosi woman in OT. Unless… Faceless man? 😬

      Oldtown is a major shipping port, so there should be people there from all over Planetos. But let’s hope that there’s a Faceless with business at the Citadel.

      True- but OT is hardly in close proximity to Braavos, and I can’t imagine why a low (ish) born Braavvosi woman would have travelled to Oldtown. And that Oldtown set has a tavern… 😬

    21. Gilly looks really pretty and I see baby Sam has grown again and is no longer a blonde.Cool lol.I hope Gilly enjoys the new place they are going.I still can’t believe somebody leaked the whole season in October.But wherever you are thanks dude you did wonders for my blood pressure.

    22. Ser Bergh: Forgot to mention: It’s obviously Sam and Gilly leaving Oldtown in Episode 5 (Director Matt Shakman is in the pictures too).

      Interesting that two of those extras are dressed Braavos style.

    23. Wimsey,

      Well, Sam is still supposedly a man of the Night’s Watch so he should be wearing his blacks. If anything, his (Tarly?) green cloak is “wrong” – a hint that he’s going to forsake his vows?

      I’m loving Gilly’s new outfit. Hannah Murray must be so thankful after wearing roughspun rags for four and a half seasons, finally having nicer costumes and her hair combed, lol!
