Game of Thrones actors have been spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and based on the many signs and news we’ve seen, the filming appears to have begun. Irish Thrones tweeted about the season 7 filming continuing in Northern Ireland at Corbet-Banbridge, the location where Riverrun is filmed at. It looks like Riverrun is going to make an appearance in season 7, and even some of the indoor studios are being made use of for the filming of Winterfell where the winter is being faked for the time being.

A lot of indoor, non land shoots & indeed more disguising of weather went on this week (Even over night) waiting on winter! WINTER IS COMING

In other news, cast members of the show are seen having fun outdoors aside from filming, and a lot of them had a group outing at a boxing match. Along with the actors John Bradley (Sam), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Alfie Allen (Theon), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss were also present. Nathalie posted a picture related to it on her Instagram:
What an unbelievable night! Thank you @hboboxing for having my @gameofthrones fam and I to #golovkinvsbrook at the #o2arena tonight! Huge congratulations to #GGG and his team for their well deserved victory! That guy is one hard mofo… And was lovely when I spoke to him after the fight… A great performance from Brook too… It was only 5 rounds but it was a quality fight. I wonder what might have happened Gennady hadn't cut Kell's eye in the beginning… It must have been so hard for his coach to stop it… It was controversial for some, I'm sure…. But it shows he was looking out for his fighter… So I have to respect that… And I met Michael Buffer and his wife who were both super sweet… And he announced my name in the arena… I mean… WHAT?!?!! I am one happy lady right now!!! #excitedrambling #letsgetreadytorumble #legend #michaelbuffer #boxing #hbo #hboboxing #ringside #blessed #soexciting #surreal #fangirlingsohardrightnow #geekingout #crazy #aaaaaaah #lovemyGoTfamily #season7
Actress Gemma Whelan, who plays Yara Greyjoy on the show also posted a picture of herself with her on-screen brother Alfie Allen, wishing him a happy birthday.
Happiest of birthdays to my beautiful friend @alfieeallen 30 today and looking more gorgeous every year! Here we are trying to warm up last year during the shooting of 'the moot', just having a typical Iron Born tea party, lovely times, lovely man, happy birthday bright star, keep shining! Xxxx❤️🎂❤️
Looks like the actors are having quite the fun in Northern Ireland while filming begins.
