Game of Thrones Season 5 filming is underway, and some of the show’s stars are already at work bringing us the next installment in the epic fantasy series.


Evidence is pouring in from all over the internet suggesting that filming for the show has returned to Belfast, Northern Ireland, and a lot of the show’s cast are already in the city. Winter Is Coming has compiled an impressive list proving lots of different plot lines are being filmed in the area.

Actors Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell), and Will Tudor (Olyver) have all tweeted about being in Belfast this week, while some fans on social media have shared photos of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and stories of Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). Carice van Houten (Melisandre) even tweeted a photo of one of Stannis’ soldiers, with the caption: “Guess where I am...”

So we now know that at least some of King’s Landing, the Wall, and the adventures of Brienne and Pod are all being filmed in Belfast. Also, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) informs The Wrap that she will be in Belfast to film starting Wednesday, so we can add the Vale to the list of represented locales as well.
