Game of Thrones Season 8 has a quick filming session at Ballintoy Harbour

Game of Thrones is currently filming for Season 8, as you all might know. The show has had a change of locations after they finished filming a big battle sequence set up north at three different locations, including the Magheramorne Quarry set that we reported extensively about. Now, the next leg of filming is going to move to a few more sets. Starting off, we know that the next big part will be played by the King’s Landing set at Belfast, Northern Ireland, while filming is also set to happen at the Dragonpit setup at Italica, Seville, Spain. Now we have news that the show has had a quick return to one more filming location we have seen in the past: Ballintoy Harbour, and the filming has even been wrapped up already! Read on!

Now, if you don’t remember Ballintoy Harbour, it’s a place in Northern Ireland which stood in for Lordsport on the Iron Islands. We had a quick peek at the filming preparations and some initial filming going on at this location, thanks to Irish Thrones and Oakleaf Photography:

The production filmed there for a few days, and has since then cleared out, according to a new picture posted to the r/FreeFolk subreddit, feat. a very cute dog:

As of this morning, filming in Ballintoy has finished from freefolk

The production filmed there for a mere 3-4 days, so looks like we will have a scene or two from the Iron Islands in Season 8. Any theories on what these could be? Hit us up in the comments, down below!

Latest leaks from House of The Dragon set in Caceres hinting at legendary Cargyll twins

Lights, Camera, and… Action! Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has begun filming in the Spanish city of Caceres. Starting October 11, the shooting will take place over a period of 10 days, and will be wrapped up by October 21. Several pictures from the set are already leaking out on social media platforms, as curious locals try to capture a sneak peek at the set. One recent clips possibly hints at the legendary Kingsguard twins the Cargyll brothers, who were quite famous during the timeline of the show.

The clip in focus is the one that was leaked not too long ago, showing Fabien Frankel (Criston Cole) practising his sword mastery with an unknown figure. Many have speculated that the person who was sparring with Frankel was one of the Tittensor brothers, Elliot or Luke. Fans arrived at the conclusion that they will be playing the Cargyll brothers because interestingly, both of them are twins as well.

Do you think the Tittensor brothers are playing Ser Arryk and Ser Erryk Cargyll? Talk to us in the comments below!
