Game of Thrones actors have been spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and based on the many signs and news we’ve seen, the filming appears to have begun. Irish Thrones tweeted about the season 7 filming continuing in Northern Ireland at Corbet-Banbridge, the location where Riverrun is filmed at. It looks like Riverrun is going to make an appearance in season 7, and even some of the indoor studios are being made use of for the filming of Winterfell where the winter is being faked for the time being.

Along with the actors John Bradley (Sam), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Alfie Allen (Theon), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss were also present. Nathalie posted a picture related to it on her Instagram:
