Game of Thrones will begin filming of season 7 in Northern Ireland within the next couple weeks, and the actor sightings are growing every day.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was spotted yesterday in Belfast, the N.I. city that serves as the home base of production. He stopped to take a photo with a fan yesterday in the city, shown above.
A few more cast members were seen in Belfast, two of them out on the town shopping. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner posed with the fan, who shared the photo online just a few hours ago:
Update: And Gwendoline Christie flew into town yesterday:
And Isaac Hempstead Wright tweeted just a half hour ago about being in Northern Ireland:

Of course Jason Momoa caused a stir online with his photos earlier this week. The actor was passing through Ireland and Northern Ireland, traveling with his family and touring the Guinness Factory. Another post-death Drogo return doesn’t seem likely- or if there is one, Momoa will probably be much more secretive about it! But as always, hope springs eternal since Momoa is beloved by everyone he works with, it seems.
In other news, there’s potential casting tidbits for speculation purposes floating around.
There are two notices posted online from the agency that handles extras for Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland. Because Extras NI avoids naming which series these roles are for, we can’t be 100% certain the parts are for GoT. However, we have heard of other extras being offered Game of Thrones work for these same dates, so it looks decently likely.
The first is for a newborn child:
The second is for men with missing teeth:
Make of that what you will.
After a long dry summer, we’re almost back into filming time. Autumn is coming, and for us, that’s a good thing!
Thanks to Maggie, NP, and AryaArya for their assistance!
