The cast of Game of Thrones continues to travel in and out of Belfast, Northern Ireland as they shoot scenes for the new season. We have our first look this season at the Mountain (aka Hafþór Björnsson) in partial makeup. That he only has makeup done around the eyes suggests the helm is staying on this time, unlike in the season finale.

IrishThrones has shared a pink-sign sighting, indicating filming (or filming very soon to come) near Corbet-Banbridge. Last week, they also reported of work happening out in Corbet, a location that last year served as the site for Riverrun.
