Game of Thrones has been filming for Season 7 for quite a while now. Season 6 was a hit, with critics and fans loving it alike, and it did pretty good at the awards season, as well. Still is. The filming for Season 7 is supposed to finish by the end of February, and we had been hearing that all the bis stars had finished with their part of filming. However, now, we have reason to believe otherwise. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the show has been spotted in Canada, for a little bit of Season 7 filming.
The news comes from MaisieStyle on Twitter :

The original tweet has been deleted, and said that Maisie was spotted in Saskatoon. Canada has been used previously by HBO for filming, before. A studio in Calgary, specifically, has been used to film direwolf scenes, where actual wolves are used for the filming and then turned into direwolves with CGI.
Another confirmation came from the Instagram account of Instinct Animals For Film, which supplies the wolves needed for filming the show. They posted a picture of Quigly, who plays Direwolf Ghost, with a caption that reads “Ready to work.” This was followed by another post from the same account, with a picture of another wolf who resembles Nymeria, Arya’s direwolf. The picture had the same caption, and the hashtag accompanying it was #winteriscoming. The pictures aren’t available anymore, but you can see the screenshots of the same in the tweet we have embedded above.
Nymeria and Arya are long overdue for a reunion, considering we haven’t seen the direwolf for a long, long time now. There doesn’t seem to be another explaination for the direwolf and Maisie both being in Canada, so we guess we will see the pair reunite in Season 7.
Now, Calgary and Saskatoon are not separated by a short distance, so there is a chance that if Maisie hasn’t actually been shooting in Calgary, we might not see her with the wolves. However, we’ll have to wait and watch to know for sure.
