Another spotted some almost-familiar figures. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was seen in Portstewart a few days ago, and it appears his stunt double is now stepping in to work on the scene.
Jon Snow and Jaime’s stunt doubles, huh — Henry Schwittay (@SchwittFaced) August 4, 2014
The reference to Jon Snow is curious, given what we know of Jon’s story, and I’m wondering if the person mistook another dark-haired person for the Snow double, or if Snow’s double was just doing another character’s stunts.
season 5 filming news, it looks like Indira Varma is in Belfast. This photo of her hanging out with the Night’s Watch crew showed up on Twitter:
According to one of our local sources, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jessica Henwick, and Rosabell Laurenti-Sellers are in Belfast as well and start filming their scenes this week.
The Sand Snakes are in town! Very exciting to see Dorne coming together. And what is Jaime up to with the Kingsguard?

Woo hoo – thanks for all the great updates. And glad there are some sleuths over there snapping pics!
SORRY but why would the actresses who play the sand snakes do their scenes in belfast ? isnt they sopposed to shoot in spain with alexander and Toby and the rest
the picture on the mountain looks like Dorne ! wow but what is that yellow stuff !
Jon Snow’s stunt double is probably just Bronn’s, right? And Kingsguard… Interesting
maybe Elliria will take over Nym`s roll so she dosnt need to go back to Dorne ! just stay in kings landing and be the dornish voice in the small councel ? and jaime will take obryen`s body and the mountain`s skull and head to dorne with the rest of the dornish party who came to the wedding ?
still wondering why would lord stokworth would go to Dorne
The scenes filmed in Belfast are most likely indoor ones. The Paint Hall is in Belfast and has been very important for Game of Thrones for that kind of stuff from the very start.
Spain is mainly for the Water Gardens. Internals are always shot in sets in Belfast.
