After making a lot of buzz while filming some beach and dune scenes in Portstewart Strand, HBO's "Game of Thrones" is moving on to its next location as it wraps up its production in Northern Ireland. Lead star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jamie Lannister in all four seasons was spotted filming some scenes with Jerome Flynn as Bronn.
Cast member Peter Dinklage arrives for the season four premiere of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" in New York in this file photo from March 18, 2014. HBO's medieval thriller led all nominees with 19 as the 2014 Emmy nominations were announced July 10, 2014.
One of the country's most popular beaches, the stunning location was closed to the public on Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 6 to 7, for the GOT's upcoming season. Local beach-goers were treated with the show's amazing props and costumes as they watched the filming unfold from afar and posted some major spoilers on Twitter, Flickr and Instagram.
Flickr user herringpond managed to capture some quality shots on Friday featuring the Dornish guards while riding on their horses. The most recognisable among the cast, the guards were wearing bright yellow costumes complete with their yellow turban. Also captured are Dornish locals travelling with donkeys carrying their goods and fresh produce, on which according to the photographer is all real.
While the crew can't maintain the onlookers during their beach scenes, filing atop the dunes was shrouded in mystery with only a few people that are able to get some distant shots. Prior to filming in Ireland, there some speculation that Jamie Lannister will be arriving in the famed city of Dorne, and according to some witnesses Cersei's twin brother was spotted dueling with Dornish guards on the beach.
"This was further confirmed by a leaked Site Access Plan, detailing that there would be a fight sequence filmed, but also a walk and talk scene between Jaime and Bronn, and that the small tent scene spotted was in fact Ellaria Sand's, who would discover that Jaime and Bronn had arrived in Dorne," Winter is Coming reports.
Another evidence that could support the claim is Photopress Belfast photo as they managed to capture two actors in a small boat rowing towards the shore. Rumour has it that the two men are Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Jerome Flynn.
Filming in a public beach caused quite a commotion but local beach dwellers are thankful for the worldwide exposure of their beautiful beach.
