Filming season is upon us, and the Game of Thrones sightings are coming fast and furious these days. As reported earlier this week, Kit Harington, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Gwendoline Christie and more stars of the show were spotted on their way to Belfast, Northern Ireland, and out in the city that serves as GoT’s home base. Just a few days on, and we have more sightings to report including important ones – Sophie Turner has returned, and Emilia Clarke is also reported to be back in town for season 8 filming.
It’s been a busy week for Turner; along with her Thrones duties, the actress’ engagement to Joe Jonas made headlines recently. She was seen out shopping with her fiance in Belfast this week, and she posed for this new pic (no, that’s not Joe Jonas):
In the above Instagram set, you can see that Ben Crompton (Dolorous Edd) is also present, posing with fans, so hopefully we’ll see some exciting action at the Wall with Edd this year! Well, what’s left of the Wall anyway.
In other cast sightings, Kit Harington was seen at a restaurant in Belfast, on Monday night.

Fans report seeing Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Iain Glen (Jorah) arriving back in town Sunday, along with Harington. Quite the large group assembling for the first week of filming! With only one unit working on GoT now, and a smaller cast (courtesy of some wildfire and executions), we’re going to be seeing big scenes including a lot of the cast together.
Emilia was spotted in Belfast on Sunday. It means she’s there and let’s not forget in Belfast we hardly get cast pics in Spain nobody can hide.

Reports this weekend say that Peter Dinklage has once again become a father, welcoming his second child with his wife Erica Schmidt. The actor must’ve hurried back to the US for the occasion, as a WotW source reports that they spotted Peter Dinklage and Hafþór “The Mountain” Björnsson in Belfast last week. (Thor doesn’t seem to be in Belfast now, based on his Instagram.) Ideally, Dinklage has some time off to enjoy his new bundle of joy before hurrying back to the set!
You gotta love these exciting days of the filming season. Bless the mighty pink GOT signs, ubiquitous in Belfast every year! They’re baaaaaaaack:
