Game of Thrones filming resumes as Kit Harington returns to Belfast, details about Season 8 opening scene revealed



Game of Thrones Season 8 filming in Belfast had been on a short hiatus, and it looks like things have sprung back into action again. A new report by Game of Thrones fansite Watchers on the Wall says that the filming on Season 8 has resumed, and there are spicy new details about the first scene of Season 8. Read on!

First off, Kit Harington, who plays the role of Jon Snow on the show, has been spotted back in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the Season 8 filming is currently set to happen. A fan tweeted about an encounter with the star :

That moment you walk up to @kitharingtoncom at Belfast airport; decide it’s not #KitHarington when you get close only to find out five minutes later that it was in fact @kitharingtoncom #fail #GameofThrones @ArtiCADDesign #ontour

Apparently Kit didn’t film earlier this week but just prepped up to film for scenes in the later part of the week. The report says that a minor character filmed on the resuming of the shooting. Apparently most of this week’s filming will happen at the Winterfell set at Moneyglass.

That’s not all the info. There’s some juicy new details about the opening scene of Season 8! SPOILER ALERT! Proceed at your own risk.

Apparently the filming this week is for the opening scene of the season, and it is supposed to take place in Winter town, the settlement right outside Winterfell. The report says that director David Nutter is also on the set, which makes sense as he is set to direct the first episode of the season, in addition to the second and fourth.
