While many of you are elbows deep in George R. R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons, the team in Belfast is currently in full-blown pre-production mode as they ramp up for filming of season two of Game of Thrones. Filming is scheduled to start on July 25, less than two weeks away.
We have had reports of some of the cast in Belfast now, doing table reads and probably costume fittings as well. While back in England, some of the Night’s Watch crew have been taking horse back riding lessons recently. Stark guard extras are currently being booked for work on the 25th and 26th. Sets have been erected in the Northern Ireland countryside. And those ubiquitous pink GOT signs are popping up around Belfast once again.
Winter Is Coming: I love receiving all the little tidbits of info and trying to form an idea of what they might be filming or working on at the moment. Sounds like those days are right around the corner once again.
