The Icelandic website Vísir reports they are shooting at Þingvellir today, one of the three known locations of this years two-week sojourn of the GoT team in Iceland. Nothing new in the article itself, but the beauty of it is that it comes with photos of the team and extras in armour.
UPDATE: Vísir has posted a video interview with Thrones producer Chris Newman from the set of today’s shoot, where he more or less confirms that this particular scene is set in the Vale. Interestingly, he notes that this scene is a part of Arya’s storyline and says that both Rory McCann (The Hound) and Maisie Williams were on set. I also like the bit at the end where he says they are using Icelandic horses but filming them from far away to pass them off as full-sized horses!
Two more photos after the break.
Hear Me Roar: I think the design of this armour is something we have not yet seen on the show, at least it is not immediately recognisable. Our best guess is these guys could be from the Vale. I can see it as a fleshing out of what little we have seen of the place in season one, and the scenery in those photos matches the previously established look as well. What do you guys think?
SPOILER: In addition to that, and completely coincidentaly, a driver recorded this video that includes him passing by the team getting ready for the day of shooting, with Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Daniel Portman (Pod) standing by the road in costume! Awww.
