OOOOOH. Don’t you just love the “Hurry Up and Wait” shots of everyone in costume waiting to start filming? So everyone knows, I am super excited for the scenes next season between Cersei Lannister and the man who will become the next High Septon in King’s Landing, the High Sparrow. Not only for the plot points, which I will not spoil here, but for watching the interactions between Lena Headey and Jonathan Pryce who is a fantastic actor. Game of Thrones always manages to cast such high caliber actors. The following photos were sent to us by a tipster who told us the following: “The area is cordoned off so nobody can access it but people who live by the cathedral have an unrestricted view.” Can you imagine looking down from your apartment on the Cathedral courtyard and watch the show get filmed every day? I would … <a href=”http://winteriscoming.net/2014/09/18/first-pictures-game-of-thrones-sibenik-cathedral/”>Continue reading <span class=”meta-nav”>→</span></a>
Over on Buzzfeed, bless their hearts, someone has run across a certain old fan theory and run it up the flagpole. (Don’t click that unless you want spoilers!) In some ways, I’m grateful. I made the discovery this summer that TV Show Only fans had completely missed a certain core mystery of the series. That’s not their fault. Game of Thrones has a major problem facing them if certain theories are correct, because they have not been able to translate them from page to screen. So perhaps having a viral website to help things along will not be remiss. But is Buzzfeed’s theory correct? We’ll discuss it below. Serious book speculation and spoilers ahead. So Book Readers all know about Jon Snow’s parentage, which the internet shorthands to R+L=J. It’s enough of a given that even Sean Bean has come out and declared … <a href=”http://winteriscoming.net/2014/09/16/game-of-thrones-speculation-parentage-of-characters/”>Continue reading <span class=”meta-nav”>→</span></a>
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, … <a href=”http://winteriscoming.net/2014/09/15/game-of-thrones-caught-dany-and-daario-in-croatia/”>Continue reading <span class=”meta-nav”>→</span></a>

Today, a local portal, grada Kaštela, informed the public that on August 14, there would be several hours of controlled burning of trash and other fine materials along the sealine in Kaštel Gomilica, opposite of a fortress known as Kaštilac. The announcement came with one other special note - it was to prepare for the filming of Game of Thrones.
