George R. R. Martin wrote a new post on Not A Blog, covering a number of issues. Among them is a short paragraph on the progress of filming:
The first week of shooting in Belfast went well, I hear, although the weather screwed with them a bit and pretty much confined them to the Paint Hall. Wish I could have been there.
He also promises to discuss Charles Dance and a couple of other castings, but won’t be able to write about every role, as there are way too many.
Hear Me Roar: It seems that we were right in assuming that all the action is taking place in the Paint Hall these days. Hence the lack of reports and sightings … we are only a week in, though, so I am sure more will come. We wish the team as many fair days as they need! No wonder GRRM cannot deal with every known role individually – the cast currently stands at 60 strong, and there are more speaking roles to come, albeit minor.
