Filming

Northern Ireland filming wraps … plus a new official set photo!

After nearly six months, filming for season two of Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland is complete. A bittersweet day for much of the cast and crew, as they are happy about a job well done but now have to say goodbye to their co-workers. Here are a selection of tweets:

Bryan Cogman (writer): “Dat’s a Belfast wrap. #GoT”
Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy): “‘@BryanCogman: Dat’s a Belfast wrap. #GoT’ Well done!”
Art Parkinson (Rickon Stark): “And thats a wrap.feel so thankful I’m part of all this I’m the luckiest boy in the world.gonna miss everyone(god I’m gonna cry)”
Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark): “Well, I guess that’s it for season 2… :( But can’t wait til season 3! ;) (fingers crossed) ;P MASSIVE thanks to everyone involved! :)”
Kristian Nairn (Hodor): “Did our last scenes today! has been an amazing experience this year. will miss everybody loads :)”

But while much of the cast and crew is now heading home, the Iceland contingent is getting ready to begin 10 more days of filming. Iceland filming is set to begin on Dec 2nd and last until the 12th.

In related news, Making Game of Thrones has a new post up. The post praises the extras that work on the show while including some funny quotes from the set. But it also has a new behind-the-scenes photo and it may be the best one yet.

Those are some new costumes… who do you think those guys are?

Winter Is Coming: It’s actually kind of hard to believe that season two filming is very nearly finished. The premiere is inching ever closer. Now we just need some juicy photos (the one above is a start) and a trailer!
