The first week of filming has drawn to a close. According to MakingGameofThrones.com writer Cat Taylor, everyone survived the week (no deaths is always a plus).
First week in. We are all still alive. Could do with a biscuit though.

Reports indicated that, at least for part of the week, they were filming at or near Shane’s Castle. In past seasons the grounds of Shane’s Castle have been the site of the tourney scene while the caverns underneath the castle have stood in for Dragonstone’s dungeons and Winterfell’s crypts. Given Cat’s tweet from the other day, it seems like they were filming on the grounds; more specifically, out in the woods.
Numerous actors have been spotted in Belfast and/or have tweeted that they are there including Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Tony Way, Alfie Allen and Iwan Rheon.
UPDATE: Forgot to mention this tidbit: Charlotte Hope, who played one of Ramsay’s women last season, recently tweeted that she’s been taking horseback riding lessons. It’s been pretty common for the production to give horseback riding lessons to any cast member who needs to ride a horse during filming. It sounds like we may see her in season 4 and she will likely be ahorse.
