New photos from Trsteno and Gradac Park
By Ours is the Fury on in Filming, Production.

Location filming in Croatia began yesterday at the Trsteno Arboretum, and several members of the press were invited down to the set to watch. Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie, and Dame Diana Rigg featured in the scene, said to be a part of the fourth season’s first episode. Preparations carried on in other locations too, as crews readied Gradac Park in Dubrovnik for filming sometime in the near future.  Luckily, local press were on hand to capture that as well!

DuList provided a report on their set visit with photographs; here are some of the highlights from their article:

Mark Thomas of EnglishmanInDubrovnik offers a detailed report about the production’s visit and locations. Thomas notes that in addition to the Hotel Belvedere site, a set is being constructed across from the Fort St. Lawrence at Gradac Park.

Gradac Park

A closer view of the new set and decorations can be seen in photos from JustDubrovnik.com:

Gradac Park4

Additionally, RTL Televizija filmed a news report with comments from producer Bernadette Caulfield and local politicians on set. Christie, Dormer and Rigg can be spotted throughout the video preparing to film their scene. Visit the link to catch a glimpse of the actors in their season four gear!

Ours is the Fury:  Gradac Park is looking very festive, I’d say. I have a pretty good idea as to what the park will be used for. Major thanks to the press in Croatia for their great Thrones coverage over the last few days!

    I love Margaery’s new dress. :) It’s in the style of previous ones but with a few nice variations on the theme.

    Beautiful costumes and sets, but I wish they’d do something different for the QoT’s headdress. Nitpicking, I know.

    No – not nitpicking. I was thinking the same thing. Poor Diana Rigg – it must be hot and uncomfortable wearing that headpiece.

    Natalie looks beautiful.

    If these scenes are for the arrival of the Red Viper, I will be thrilled. I want his arrival to be as glorious as it is in the books.

    According to that last article, they will be filming in Dubrovnik till September 20th, and then move on to Split and stay there till October 20th. That’s solid two months of filming in Croatia.

    Part of a sculpture of… a horse with a flaming tail, flames in general, or possibly a sun? Isn’t the Martell sigil something with a sun and a spear?

    Brienne will met Margaery, rumor from HRT, national television of Croatia (it was on news, millions of Croatians heard it)

    And why is Marg blonde?

    Natalie’s real hair is blonde. This, however, is her usual brown wig.

    Looking forward to Gradac set. Wondering if these are two different sets in one place, because it seems that the one with the fountain is in the parc, and the other is a bit a the upper terrain (as far as I recall Dubrovnik sites).

    To each their own. I was going to make a bitchy comment about how he looks like the creepy shiny shirted guy who hits on you in the club in 2003.

    Anyways… sets and costumes look gorgeous as usual.

    Since Gwendolin was there, I’m guessing Brienne catches hell from the whole Tyrell family for the death of Renly, not just Loras?

    On the show, Loras doesn’t believe she killed him. Margaery was the one who suspected her.

    I like those little bits of armor on Margeary’s dress on the first picture. Brings back to that discussion she had with Circei at the beginning of season 3, about “a bit of armor being useful”. I wonder if there’s intentional symbolism there of if it’s just a coincidence?

    Which kills yet another chance to show Loras’ mourning. Seriously, all of my Unsullied friends are convinced he didn’t even care about Renly, just wanted to be a lover to the king

    The Blue Grace,

    Yeah they must have forgot his jealous pouting in season 2 over Brienne and his vow to kill Stannis. Granted they didn’t explore his grief in season 3 but there’s always room for that in season 4. Especially with Brienne there to remind him of it.

    Unfortunately, Loras isn’t exactly a main character, so when there’s little room for character development, he’s one of the first who suffers – not too surprising given the size of the cast. I do have faith he’ll get some moments in Season 4.

    The Blue Grace,

    Maybe they had him seduced by Petyrs spy so that he could say that and have it actually mean something to him. As in, he’s actually tried to replace the “sun?” And how cheesy that line sounds is dependent on the way it’s said. Maybe Jaime will be all “ya know, my sister is (insert flame metaphor)” and Loras is all “psh she’s just a candle, ya feel me dawg?”Lololololol

    The girls are Margaery’s cousins. And yes Natalie Dormer looks really young. We don’t know how old Margaery is supposed to be on the show but I would guess she is 21 or 22.
