Season 7 filming: Kit Harington returns to Iceland



Kit Harington has returned to Iceland, where Game of Thrones has been filming scenes for Season 7 for the past couple of weeks. The actor was in the area during a day of filming at the Svínafellsjökull glacier, but then turned up in London. We thought that meant his time in Iceland was over, but a fan snagged a picture with him this past Friday night.

This means Harington was/is around for at least part of a shoot on the Black Sand Beach near the town of Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland.

Although it’s hard to tell exactly who was involved in the shoot from the wide shots available, other actors in the area at the time included Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Rory McCann (the Hound) and Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane). Their presence lines up with Season 7 SPOILERS that this group of characters will head north of the Wall to hunt for a wight. It looks like this is a layover on their journey—most likely, they’re stopping by Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, a seaside castle operated by the Night’s Watch, before heading further north.

Also, the shot above, which features two rowboats, matches an earlier scene the production filmed on Itzurun Beach in Zumaia, Spain. There, several of these characters shoved off from the shores of Dragonstone, where Daenerys Targaryen will set up shop come Season 7.


And now they’re a little closer to their ultimate destination. More as it breaks.
