Well I’m back from a week long vacation in which I took a break from this site and the day job and had spent some quality time with the family (although I did manage to finally finish A Dance with Dragons as well). Now I’m refreshed and ready to jump back into the world of Game of Thrones.
It seems a lot has happened while I was gone! I have a bunch of new faces to add to our season two cast page. But first, let’s do a quick filming update, shall we?
Last Wednesday, filming moved into the Paint Hall for the first time this season. They also reportedly did some filming in a forest in Clandeboye Estate on a set covered in fake snow. Here is a YouTube video of the set. Hard to make out much, but the speculation that this might be Craster’s Keep seems to make sense.
This week the production will be on location again, this time filming at Ballintoy Harbour (pictured above without any set dressing). Numerous set photos have leaked onto the web (via Flickr, Photobucket and Yfrog) and they all show, unsurprisingly, a harbor set. My guess was that this set would be used for the scenes on Pyke. However, reports from the set seem to indicate it is actually going to be a scene prior to a battle. So maybe this harbor is actually on Dragonstone? We should know more tomorrow, once the filming actually begins. Stay tuned…
