Game of Thrones wrapped up filming nearly two years ago. The streaming network is known for its secrecy when it comes to filming its shows and movies. However, when it comes to Game of Thrones, the security has been extra tight. They are extremely mum about the upcoming Game of Thrones projects as well. The only thing we know for sure is that House of The Dragon is currently on its way for release in 2022. And several other interesting projects are in development. With so many things hidden under a veil of confidentiality, HBO still manages to get the audience hyped up by releasing a few photos every now and then. Recently, they released an unseen photo from the filming period of Game of Thrones on Instagram.

HBO dropped a behind-the-scenes image from the original series, showing us Maisie Williams in costume as Arya Stark ready to dice someone up with the caption: “A girl is ready for anything.”
The picture appears to have been taken from season 3, when Arya was travelling with Gendry and Hot Pie after leaving Harrenhal — the hair and height look about right. It’s hard to tell by the clothes alone since Arya didn’t have a chance to change for a while there.

I’ll never understand how Lena Headey didn’t win multiple Emmy Awards & Golden Globes for her phenomenally evil portrayal of Cersei Lannister.
I despised the character for her cruelty, while admiring her intense loyalty & badass scenes at the same time. pic.twitter.com/1kabb8OXVW

Martin shared a picture of Ser Loras Tyrell, a bisexual knight from his novel. It was a concept art made by the CMON game design crew. He quoted, “Happy Pride Month, Everyone! Sir Loras in all his Rainbow Guard glory from the
Game design crew. #pride”
There were some who were trolling the veteran author. One pointed out how Martin misspelled Ser as ‘Sir‘. Martin made fun of him by calling him a social media minion.
