Game of Thrones Season 4 began filming this week, and much rejoicing was heard throughout the Seven Kingdoms. But where in the real world is the cast and crew jetting off to this season? We've rounded up the news about what locations might be turned into the magical world of Westeros next year.
Northern Ireland: Game of Thrones will once again film in Northern Ireland, which has been used for all sorts of locations on the show.
Iceland: Iceland has traditionally been used for locations north of the Wall, and it sounds like we can expect more of the same breathtaking landscapes: Filming in Iceland commences in late July, with production needing up to 200 people, including extras, according to Snorri Þórisson, CEO of movie production company Pegasus, which assists HBO in Iceland. Interestingly, we know that Pegasus was looking for "20 bald men" for small parts on the Icelandic episodes.
Also worth noting: given that they are filming there in the summer, as opposed to the winter as in the past, it's possible Iceland will be used for non-north of the Wall settings.
Croatia: There will once again be filming in Dubrovnik, Croatia; presumably, it will continue to serve as the backdrop for King's Landing. There will also be some new locations from the Croatia incorporated, including a possible "dessert scene" (Dorne?).
So far Morocco, where Dany's Slaver Bay scenes were shot last year, has not been confirmed as a location.
