The Andalusian region of Spain has joined the ranks of Croatia, Iceland, and Northern Ireland to welcome the Game of Thrones cast and crew during this exciting time, as season 5 is being created. Images of the week’s activities at Portstewart Strand were unbelievably accessible, scattered across social media, but a very cool look into what’s to come nonetheless.
In an exciting bit of news, our friends at Los Siete Reinos (who sent a raven during the dark of last evening) have kept a firm eye on their homeland, and report that an iconic scene for the upcoming season has been tested in Osuna’s Plaza de Toros.
This, of course, is very exciting. Those who are sullied can guess to the nature of what will be captured in this location — we can’t wait.
A source close to an Andalusian media company has shared information on the progress of specific scenes in Osuna, more specifically, from the bullring. According to their source, filming has taken place in the bullring of Osuna, with the shuttling of 50 extras and the episode’s director to the location on a recent early morning. Beyond that, he comments on the content of this particular scene.
As this information is spoilerly in nature, do not read further if you have not finished A Dance With Dragons.
I can tell you, exclusively, the HBO team has already shot pictures in the Plaza de Toros. Yes, I mean that scene in The Sands of Meeren. I was told, HBO brought a bus with fifty types, and the director of episode spent an entire morning doing “little things” in the Plaza. So right now, there will be a type of production by inserting images of a dragon flying over the square.
I can only say that filming in Osuna in October and will be a great display. What they have done so far are evidence and fieldwork.
Exciting times. From this, we can gather that filming has taken place in Spain, testing or not, that could make its way into the series. We look forward to seeing more of what’s to come in Osuna, and to production winding its way to the city of Seville. For now, enjoy this aerial footage of Osuna, as Game of Thrones and the upcoming season is discussed in Spanish.
