Filming for the HBO hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones season 5 has recently moved to a new location in Northern Ireland, in gorgeous Murlough Bay. The bay is a remote location in northeastern County Antrim, with gorgeous views overlooking various Scottish islands across the North Channel. It was previously used to film scenes in seasons 2 and 3; Theon’s horseback ride with Yara, and Davos’ rescue from being shipwrecked by Salladhor
Additionally, we’ve learned that filming in Dubrovnik’s Old City also is continuing. According to WoTW, today’s scenes are once more being shot in the streets surrounding the Jesuit Staircase. Filming there will continue until Wednesday, before moving on to an assortment of streets in the southern part of the Old City.
It looks like today’s scenes again involves a lot of extras, including gold cloaks, Lannister men-at-arms, and members of the Faith Militant. The scene involves the royal procession (the same one as seen in yesterday’s pictures) making its way down the street, with today’s shots focusing on the extras who can be heard taunting and jeering. A large green screen also obscures the area at the top of the Jesuit Staircase.
“Game of Thrones” returns in April 2015.
