Cameras were rolling today at the Castillo de Zafra, the castle in Spain serving as the location for a legendary scene from the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Game of Thrones production has been prepping at the Tower of Joy site for several days and we have a report to share with fans direct from the shooting location, courtesy of Los Siete Reinos.
The exciting report will of course contain major spoilers, so consider yourselves warned! There will be images and a video below.
First off, L7R‘s Javi captured this quick video of the filming, taken from a distance:
L7R reports they haven’t yet seen Isaac Hempstead-Wright (spotted staying in town near the shooting location) or horses today. They were able to extract some images of Ned Stark, Arthur Dayne and the fight at the tower. Here are a few photos; stop by L7R for their complete gallery!
The woman in white on the left in the photos below is believed to be Lyanna Stark. (She’s wearing the blue hair wrap often see by actresses on the show, used to protect wigs.)
L7R has edited this bit and we think it may be someone holding a reflector for lighting purposes:

I’m incredibly excited to see the sequence come together. I can’t wait to see some epic swordplay.
