Game of Thrones Season 8 filming update: Dothraki ready their horses



Game of Thrones Season 8 is set to arrive next year, and the cast and crew recently had a wrap party but the filming isn’t yet over. As the haze from that party settles, we have buzz of filming from other locations, and Dothrakiare involved! Read on!

First off is the return of the pink signs, this time at Lessans Riding Stables:

Dothraki extras were seen mounted on horses, at the Lessans Riding Stables, in an Instagram picture which was then deleted. The caption read:

“What an exciting week we’ve had transforming the yard into a film set. Try explaining to a Dothraki warrior that, even though the sun is blazing, Winter is here.”

Here’s the picture, reuploaded to Twitter by a fan:

Now this is around Saintfield, where the Battle of the Bastards was shot, and it looks like we will see the Dothraki on that field now. This has to be a Winterfell shot, which we know will be a part of a big battle sequence. There’s a possibility it’s just a small cut scene of the horde riding in, since the chunk of the action has been filmed months ago.

In other news, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) recently posted an Instagram story in a place that looks like Ballycastle, in County Antrim. Check it out:

Ballycastle has been used in the show quite a few times, and has also stood in as the Free Cities before. Another crew member, Bennett Clarke, Emilia’s older brother, who is a camera trainee on the show, put up a picture around the same area:

Meanwhile Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) were spotted at the Belfast airport:

Lastly, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain) is also in Ireland:
