First set photos from Croatia

Filming began today at the fort of St. Lawrence in Dubrovnik and several photos were taken by the Croatian press of the cast as they arrived. Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Aidan Gillen, Jerome Flynn, and Daniel Portman were all spotted. The fort was previously used in season two, for Joffrey’s name-day celebration, for the location where the nobles took refuge after the riot, and for Cersei and Littlefinger’s heated exchange about the nature of power.


Additional photos can be seen in our gallery.

UPDATE: The Dubrovnik Times has similar photos from the first day of actor filming, as well. The Times notes that, “After filming in the fortress the whole production crew moved to the Pile area nearer the Old City.”

Also, DubrovnikTV.net has film footage of the actors arriving in costume.

Ours is the Fury: The costuming looks great so far, with Cersei’s beautiful red dress having a Lannister feel. The stiff back is somewhat reminiscent of Margaery’s notorious season two gown, but is a more flattering design.
