Game of Thrones Season 8 filming is underway, as we now have more cast sightings in Belfast, Northern Ireland. First off, isKit Harington (Jon Snow), who was with at a Belfast pub with Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane). Apparently Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), and Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) were nearby :

While we have reports of pretty much every important star back for filming, the future of one character is still unknown. Ellie Kendrick, who played Meera Reed on Game of Thrones in seasons 3, 4, 6 and 7. The last we saw her, she left Bran Stark in safety, at Winterfell, and got that really awkward thank you. In a recent interview with Metro, Ellie said that she had no idea whether she was in or out of Game of Thrones :
“Not as far as I know. I don’t know. It’s funny because I always get asked, “What’s going to happen? Are you in it?” Genuinely the truth is I don’t know.
I wait for the phone to ring and then I find out, but it hasn’t rung so I don’t know. I’ll find out whether I am or not at some point, but for now I haven’t been notified so I’m yet to discover.”
She also talked about her last scene in Season 7, and her split with the new Three-Eyed Raven :
“It was really sad on a personal level, because we had a little gang which dwindled further and further as the seasons went on. It was a sad day to say farewell to young Isaac – not so young now and also very tall, which means he was so difficult to put on the sled, which I actually did, although he’s a lot taller than me. So while I was sad to say farewell, I was also slightly relieved for my spine because I no longer have to be dragging him across any wintered land.
I genuinely did drag him. Not all the time, because in really wide shots there was a dummy version of him. But I did a lot of dragging. No dragon, just a lot of dragging. I got a very strong back by the end of it.”
So her version of a Meera comeback? Ellie says she would love to see her come back on a dragon and be the new queen, but that’s just dreaming. What do you think? Will we see Meera Reed in Season 8? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
