Filming news continues to be something of a mixed bag this month. Actors are filtering in and out of Northern Ireland, with the latest sightings providing hints and teases as to what’s to come.
While in Belfast this week, fans ran into Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead Wright and David Bradley. This is the second time Bradley has been spotted back in the city this filming season; he was also photographed with a fan there back in August.
David was still in town yesterday, recognized by a fan for his Harry Potter role and not so much for his work as the dastardly Walder Frey.
Yesterday, Maisie shared this pic of her with Sophie Turner, commenting, “Looking for a repeat of this night on Friday. @sophiet.” So it looks like the Stark girls are headed for a reunion- in real life, anyway.
As for where they’ve been filming lately, it seems Game of Thrones has been all over the place in Northern Ireland with shooting at Titanic Studios, rumored filming at Shane’s Castle, and a return to Magheramorne Quarry. There’s also local filming in the forest, according to location photos posted by a Game of Thrones special effects makeup artist on Instagram.
The new photos show woodsy areas covered in fake snow and the smoke that creates the foggy atmospheric look for many scenes.
So there you have it. Walder’s back in town, along with the Stark kids and we’re getting some snowy-woods action. The frosty woods are similar to the ones of the North we’ve seen before but with winter coming, it’s harder to predict where exactly this scene will take place.
