After the Emmys wrapped up very recently, the stars of Game of Thrones have returned to Belfast so that the filming for season 7 can continue, and there have been various sightings around the town. Fansite Watchers on the Wall spotted a few stars of the show hanging out in Belfast, and here’s the tweet they posted:
Walked past Alfie Allen, Kit Harington & Isaac Hempstead Wright in Belfast today. Unexpected perk of wandering around lost for an hour

Sources of the site confirm that actors Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Jacob Anderson, are all set to be in Belfast soon as filming kicks off. Sophie Turner was seen at LAX airport, and Nathalie Emmanuel tweeted about returning to Belfast as well.
After waking up to that wonderful news… I am even more excited to get started on Season 7… See you later Belfast!!! ?☺️??

Kit Harington was also seen at LAX airport with Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo).

Even though Kit was the only one seen heading to Belfast, Jason is making far too many appearances alongside the Game of Thrones cast and producers, but let’s focus on that later. Now that the stars have been successfully sighted, we can return to looking at the resumed filming in Belfast. The cast and crew are now back to work after the Emmys, and the crew has now returned to a filming location that has previously been used for Winterfell.
@WatchersOTWall Filming currently going on just outside Saintfield. The crew's base is just round the corner from my house.

Saintfield has been a favourite filming location for Game of Thrones, and as fans have reported, the filming has begun there for season 7. The private estate in this location was used back in season 6 for the filming of Battle of the Bastards, but sources report that this time there will be no battle sequence in Winterfell, but more particularly, a scene in the Godswood is being filmed.

Now whether this involves Bran, Sansa and Jon getting around the Weirwood tree or not, we don’t know, but there is no harm in speculating the same.
