Today, according to reports, will be the last day of filming at Doune Castle for most of the principal cast. Officially, the last day they have the castle reserved for filming is the 30th, so I’m not sure if that means they have a few days for take down or they will be filming second unit type stuff until then. Either way, most of the main cast (Bean, Headey, Ehle) will be completed filming at Doune Castle today.
Sounds like they had a late night last night. According to the stand-in for Ehle and Headey, filming didn’t wrap until close to midnight. From the reports of the great hall being done up for the feast as well as the amount of extras that were present yesterday, I’m going to guess that they were filming the feast scenes last night.
Meanwhile, Jamie Campbell Bower has tweeted that he is on his way to Belfast. I am assuming this means they will be filming the prologue in the Paint Hall and not in the highlands of Scotland as some had speculated.
As usual, keep it here for updates throughout the day.
UPDATE: Commenter grimherald checks in with a set report:
The main courtyard is covered in mud and there seemed to be a cart there and some large iron braziers dotted about. They were filming in the great hall, so access there was restricted but we managed to see a room where all the food/props were stored. Some woman was running about asking where the wineskins were and there was a silver banner with a bird on it with the name Corvus Corax. Also saw the Lannister banner which had a crimson background with a roaring lion’s head. Bumped into a couple of extras on the way out who were in costume, just peasants by the looks of them. Sadly, didn’t get to see any of the main cast but the fact that I was standing in Winterfell made my day.
UPDATE: Received this photo of the courtyard set from an anonymous emailer. I believe this is the first photo of an actual Game of Thrones set, not just a photo of crew setting up. Oh and I can definitely see this being the scene of the Jon/Tyrion encounter.
UPDATE: A poster over at the Westeros forums claims to have seen one minute of footage during his trip to Doune Castle:
just as a quick note, i went to over to scotland and doune castle today, saw them editing the show…. looked FREAKING AWESOME!!!!
im not kidding, i honestly don’t believe they could’ve done a better job with the roughly 1min of footage i saw on their screens.
