The newest Making Game of Thrones post from showrunner’s assistant Cat Taylor has her talking about the exhilaration of filming on location in the beautiful Northern Ireland countryside.
This season alone we have been up and down the northern coast of Antrim and into the corners of the country. Filming only a few miles from the world famous Giant’s Causeway and in tiny coves that are so startlingly beautiful it’s distracting. We have filmed on cliff tops and beaches, taken over the grounds of stately homes, caves and even old quarries. In what used to be empty rolling fields, there are castles and battlefield camps. Woodland clearings become campsites full of wagons and horses. A Godswood is just off a dirt track on the way south from the city. It’s all amazing to see.
Winter Is Coming: The post also includes the latest behind-the-scenes photo from the set of season two. It is not the scenic photo above, which one would think would accompany a post like this, but rather a nighttime photo of a truck. Color me confused. How about some juicy set pics, HBO?
