All the locations used in Game of Thrones are such perfectly apt locations for the show which are equal parts breathtakingly beautiful and suitably ancient. For instance, Spain, Iceland and Morocco etc have all been used for Game of Thrones locations. Now, the executive producers are looking at Canary Islands which are a Spanish archipelago located just off the southern coast of Morocco.
Going by the reports online, Government of Canary islands recently confirmed the ongoing negotiations between Canarias Film Commission with Game of Thrones and is in the process of currently looking at potential locations suitable for filming the show. Moreover, some deserts are required for Daenerys and there are a number of arid deserts in Canary Islands. There are also various lush green areas and thus, Game of Thrones producers have quite a variety to choose from.
They also have a preference for something which has the same potential as Teide National Park which is where Spain’s highest mountain lies and volcano and lava flows occur consistently. The plus points about working with Canary islands could include both financial and aesthetic advantages. HBO is going to get a 35% tax deduction on the expenses if it shoots in Canary Islands.
Thus, it will prove to quite a beneficial deal, if it happens.

New House of The Dragon set photos show Graham McTavish and Olivia Cooke in full costume
Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high priority projects at HBO currently. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. Recently, some never-before-seen photos from the set were leaked by Daily Mail Online, providing the fans with a first look at Graham McTavish’s armour in the prequel series. Several other members of the cast were spotted as well.
This time, the cast and the crew were spotted filming at Derbyshire, England on Friday. McTavish was seen donning a full battle armour riding a horse. There have been no confirmations about his role yet, and the pictures were not clear enough to actually guess what House does he belong to.
Olivia Cooke was seen wearing a period costume similar to one once worn by Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones. She’s inside a horse-drawn carriage. Cooke plays Queen of Westeros Alicent Hightower in House of The Dragon.
Milly Alcock, who will play a younger version of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the Game of Thrones prequel, was also spotted on set. She appeared to be bidding farewell to a motion capture device that looked like the head of a dragon.
A few more pictures of the set were leaked, that showed unidentified characters and some scenes showing charred and broken bones, possibly the remains of a dragon’s meal. It’s time to get on the hype train!

New Set Photos from House of The Dragon provide a glimpse of Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon
Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. Last week, the crew was spotted filming at various sites in Cornwall. The show’s stars Matt Smith and Emma D’Arcy were seen filming on Holywell Beach in costume. Some more photos were leaked, later on, providing a glimpse at another important character, Lord Corlys Velaryon.
The Daily Mail recently published photos of the cast and crew preparing for a busy day of shooting in Cornwall. The leaked photos provide the very first look at Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon. Also, the filming that day took place at St. Michael’s Mount, which is very likely the set for Driftmark, the home base for House Velaryon.
In other photos, Matt Smith was seen wrapped up in a padded black jacket that covered his black ensemble. He was covered up with his coat to protect it from the rain as he walked to and from the set. His mid-length wig was pulled into a half-back hairdo.
Emma D’Arcy wore a long crimson gown to portray Princess Rhaenyra. She was also covered up with a large overcoat to keep herself warm from the bracing wind. With all the characters clad in black/dark colours, with a sizable group gathered, it may have been for a funeral. Possibly for the sarcophagus seen that day on set.

Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey to star and produce AMC’s ‘Beacon 23’
Fantasy is a blissful escape from bleak reality. The COVID-19 pandemic is on the rise again, and the world economy is in ruins. People rely on the fantastical world to take a break from everything that’s going on. Game of Thrones was one such happy escape that kept fans entertained for nearly a decade. No wonder it was voted as the greatest TV show of the 21st century. Actress Lena Headey is one of the biggest names from the cast of the show. The veteran actress is back to the small screen with the sci-fi series Beacon 23.
Serving as one of the lead characters, Headey will star as Aster. A woman who mysteriously becomes a beacon keeper on a remote lighthouse. She is also set to executive produce through her production company, Peephole Productions.
Based on the book of the same name by Hugh Howey, Beacon 23 follows Halan and Aster as they find themselves trapped at the end of the known universe as beacon keepers. They are responsible for ensuring the safe passage of ships in the 23rd century. Unable to tell if the other is trustworthy, a tense battle of wills unfolds at the edge of space. Howey’s series has five entries, so there is plenty of content and inspiration to draw from for the new small-screen adaptation.
