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