As expected, the reports have slowed down considerably now that the production has moved back to Northern Ireland. Jamie Campbell Bower tweeted that he had an early night last night, which suggests to me that they are finished filming the prologue. A day and a half of filming seems about right for that relatively short scene. Will have to keep an eye on his Twitter and see if he talks about leaving Belfast.
In other news, Norri, a member of the German medieval band Corvus Corax, posted over at the Westeros forums confirming their involvement in the pilot. He mentioned that they played new versions of two of their songs, Skudrinka and Ballade de Mercy. He also mentioned that they had their costumes and hair done in a style that would fit with the look of the show.
Speaking of costumes, Rimshot checks in with this exciting report from his costume fitting yesterday:
Had my costume fitting yesterday.
As I sat there I kept thinking ‘my friends at WIC would love this!’.
As I mentioned before, I’m a ‘Stark Servant’ (not Start! That’s what happens when you answer the phone still half-asleep!).
To tell you the truth, I had written a long piece describing my costume and several of the others I had seen, including guards and Jaime’s armour. I saw loads yesterday and I’m dying to tell you guys but I would be letting down my agency and betraying the trust they have in me.
Guys, I’m sorry as I know you are hungry for any bit of info but it would be wrong of me and I want to keep working in this business. Carla and Extras NI have been very good to me and, if GOT is picked up, we could have years of work to look forward to.
You will see what I saw soon enough but I will say this. I have worked on loads of films and worn loads of costumes and those I saw yesterday were some of the highest quality I have ever seen (wait till you see the armour!) I can’t wait to get my servant’s costume back on and to step into the world of GOT.
As always, keep it here for any updates.
UPDATE: Here is what is reported to be a photo of a Clanranald member dressed as a Baratheon guard from Louie Pastore’s LiveJournal.
