Buy Game of Thrones Merchandise

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.

Aidan Gillen (Lord Petyr Baelish) was spotted, via this photo from Instagram, taken at the Boojum Burrito Bar in Belfast.

The restaurant also saw the Mountain a few days ago:

And Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) may be headed there herself next week:

Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) was seen in Belfast as well, two days ago:

John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) too was spotted at Boojum:

And Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) and Ellie Kendrick (Meera Reed) are joining the party:

Nearing the end of the first week of filming, Peter Dinklage finally joins the fray. The actor was spotted this morning at the Belfast airport:

Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) met Lena Headey at Belfast, and the tweets seemed to indicate that they met for the first time and were excited to see each other again.

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.

With so many sightings and the casting of Jim Broadbent and Angela Lansbury (rumored) with many more to come (hopefully), it has been an exciting week for Game of Thrones Fans.
