The first photo from the set of Game of Thrones season three has surfaced. Over at the NI-Wild forums, user beau posted this shot of some crew members toting Bran’s wheelbarrow laden with a stuffed Summer. This was photo was snapped yesterday in the Mourne Mountains and seems to indicate that filming has begun a week earlier than the rumored July 9th date. As we can see, they are starting the filming this season with some Bran scenes.
Winter Is Coming: So, if filming has begun, why the lack of casting news? Well first off, they won’t fill every role prior to the start of filming. They were still casting roles a month or two after filming began last year. But HBO is reluctant to confirm any casting at this time. Hopefully things change soon as there is certainly a bulk of casting that has been completed but not yet announced.
