Daario Naharis Daenerys Targaryen Filming Game of Thrones Season 5

Caught! Dany and Daario In Croatia

No it’s not anything hot and steamy like that. You wish, shippers!

But it is our first glimpse of Emilia Clarke in Croatia. (That’s her with her wig wrapped up nicely in blue cloth. Pay attention cosplayers, take wig advice from the pros.) We’ve also got a shot of her one time lover, Daario, played by Michiel Huisman. (Still played by Huisman. They haven’t switched back. Or forward. Or again.)

Our friends over at Total Split have been documenting the Game of Thrones filming set up for Meereen for a while now. But there was one thing they didn’t have any shots of–the stars. Today that has been rectified.

More picture, and a few mildly spoilery remarks, after the jump.

I love Daario’s outfit, don’t you? Last we checked, Dany had sent this bad boy away, somewhat on Ser Jorah’s suggestion. But with Jorah banned, there’s now room for Dario to return and slide on in to the recently vacated advisory role Jorah once filled, and most likely Dany’s bed as well. I don’t think anyone will consider it a spoiler that’s he’s going to be much, much better at one of these roles than the other.

The stars being out and about and ready to film coincides with all the rumors we’ve heard about major scenes being filmed this week, including an uprising after Dany has a slave put to death. This also jives with our earlier post that extra extras will be wanted tomorrow for filming. The only question is–will they film the scene here? Or is this going to be used for something else? Whatever it is, I’m pretty sure this set is going to be slave related.

Sorry! Security says that’s all you get for now.  We’ll keep our eyes peeled for anything that comes out of tomorrow’s filming.

  • I am really curious to see how the Daenerys & Daario relationship will be shown in season 5. It may come across slightly differently when we don’t have Dany’s POV… Also, very happy they are sticking with Huisman, huge upgrade :)

  • Love to see Michiel Huisman, with or without clothes, back as Daario! I hope they make an onscreen connection this year!!!

  • It’s so funny to see how so many people have done a complete 180 on the new (well, not new anymore) Daario. Not talking about anyone specifically here, but when season 4 premiered there was all this talk about how the new Daario sucks and Ed Skrein was so much sexier and this ‘n’ that.

    • Darjan,

      Also if you watched early Treme, your experience with the actor was “AHHH GET OFF MY SCREEN SHUT UP SHUT UP!”

  • OT
    Wow, Tobias Menzies (Edmure) makes a “terrible” bad guy! He’s earning my hate with his role in Outlander very well. Good job, Tobias!

  • I am proud to say I hated Skrein all along :D

  • Darjan,

    That’s simply because haters, by nature, are more likely to post to forums and comments, especially since it’s mostly anonymous, and so that’s what you see more of. So glad that Michiel Huisman was unfazed by it! I’ll say this, they wanted a sure thing when it came to sexy scenes -and they got it with him.

  • Clob,

    The timing of the broadcast of the first season of Outlander is remarkable.
    I wonder if Outlander (about the English suppressing the Scottish) will have any influence on the outcome of the the Scottish Independence referendum.
