Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew were spotted in Aldershot, and locals are leaking out quite a few details about the set.

In the most recent leaks from the set in Aldershot, fans have spotted a carriage bearing the sigil of House Strong. House Strong was already confirmed by HBO earlier last month when HBO released information about new additions to the cast, which included Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong played by Ryan Corr, Larys Strong played by Matthew Needham, and Lord Lyonel Strong played by Gavin Spokes.

Game of Thrones during its run changed lives around the globe. Not only did it turn out to be a profitable venture for all involved it also boosted the economies! Apparently, Thrones over the years added approximately £250m to Northern Ireland’s economy. Titanic Studios in Belfast, home to HBO’s base of operations for Game of Thrones for nearly 10 years, is on sale now, which marks the end of an era for the place.
Located on Queens Road, the studio’s neighbors include The Painthall Studio, TEC Belfast, Amazon Distribution Hub, The Innovation Centre, Science Park, Arc Apartments, Premier Inn, PRONI Office, Citi Bank HQ, and Olympic House which is currently under construction. According to Irishnews, specialist commercial property consultant Riddell McKibbin announced the listing on Friday. The building includes what is known as MacQuitty and Hurst Stages set within a huge standalone steel portal framed building.
It is situated directly adjacent to the Titanic slipway and Victoria Wharf on the eastern side of the River Lagan, where it meets Belfast Lough. Mark Riddell, Director at Riddell McKibbin commented: “This is a truly unique space and there will be no doubt much excitement as this studio, now known all over the world due to shows filmed here, comes to the market. The studio is a once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity for any purchaser and so we would not expect this to remain on the market for long.”
Let’s hope the studio will land in the right hands and will be taken care of properly. Talk to us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones had a massive impact on the fantasy genre, playing into several myths and legends inside its universe. Blood was shed, kings were crowned and prophecies were made, all in the name of the one true king. However, not all of the prophecies came to pass, and fans have been scratching their heads for a long time trying to figure out what they meant (or if they even meant anything at all). HBO has finally decided to put to rest one of such intriguing mysteries about the show, that is, who really was ‘The Prince That Was Promised’.
Recently, the Game of Thrones Official Facebook page posted an image of Jon Snow, ascribing the designations he has held in the series. Lord Snow. 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. King in the North. The Bastard of Winterfell. And… Wait for it… “The Prince That Was Promised”.
Fans have been speculating for long who really was the Prince or Princess who was promised, and this post finally puts to rest all the conspiracy theories about who it was meant to be. It was prophesized in the show that the promised prince/princess would play an important role in the final war, and would be a messianic figure destined to save the world from the coming of the Others.
Do you think the declaration satisfies all the criteria of the prophecy? Talk to us in the comments below!
The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is in full swing. We’re receiving updates about the filming currently going on in the Portuguese city of stone, Monsanto, via leaks that are reported every other day. Former Doctor Who Matt Smith is playing the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen on the show, one of the key players in the story of House of The Dragon. And his dragon, Caraxes, is going to be one of the meanest, biggest, and baddest beasts in the series.
Smith, in his recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, talked about various aspects of the Game of Thrones prequel, including the release date of the highly anticipated Game of Thrones prequel. As expected, he was tight-lipped and did not dive much into the details, but he did leave a hint for the fans who are waiting impatiently for the series to finally be here. Smith revealed in the podcast:
“We’ve been doing it since March, and I finish in January. It’s tough, it’s a long shoot.”
What does this mean for House of The Dragon? Matt Smith is playing one of the most important characters in the series. If you’ve been following the leaks for the past few months, you will know there’s one person who has been spotted at almost all the filming locations, and that is Matt Smith. We also know that the prequel is going to be a multi-seasoned show, and if we go by the source material Smith’s Daemon Targaryen isn’t supposed to die this early. So we can make an intelligent guess the filming for the first season won’t go on for long after he finishes in January.
When do you think House of The Dragon will arrive? Will it be by mid-2022 or towards the end? Tell us in the comments below!
