The last time we saw Gendry on Game of Thrones, he was rowing his life away, and since then, there hasn’t been any progress on where the character might be. However, since season 7 filming news started coming out, people have continued to speculate whether Gendry will make an appearance this time. Recent reports from Spanish website Los Siete Reinos suggest that actor Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, was seen on set in Spain. Though there is no photographic evidence to support that, the website has almost certainly been accurate a lot of times when it comes to Game of Thrones filming.
Some of the actors, including Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos) were seen with the crew in Spain in the Basque country region on a beach, and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) is also suspected to have arrived. Speculation suggests that the beach will serve as Dragonstone on the show, and Peter and Liam are set to film a few scenes together. What Gendry might have to do in any of the locations on Game of Thrones which will be filmed in Spain is not clear yet, but since Joe Dempsie was previously spotted on Belfast airport in September, it is highly likely that he will be filming some scenes in Spain now.
And not only us, even Joe hopes to return to the show soon, as back in August during an interview, he had expressed that he would love to be back on Game of Thrones, and that he knows how much fans are eager to find out Gendry’s storyline now. Hopefully, there will be photos to support Joe’s arrival in Spain soon, so let’s keep our eyes open for that!
