Photos Of The Game Of Thrones Cast In Iceland Have Leaked Online And Here's Exactly What They Mean
This is huge! 😮
Game of Thrones cast and crew have done their best to keep tight lipped about the next season of Game of Thrones, but that hasn't stopped a few spoilers from leaking out anyway.
Game of Thrones, as fans know, films in several locations. There's - of course - Northern Ireland, which stands in for everything from the Riverlands to Winterfell. There's Croatia and Spain, which stands in for King's Landing. And then there's Iceland, where scenes beyond the Wall are filmed. And in Season 8, where the wildlings are teamed up with the rest of Westeros, we know there's only one thing left south of the Wall: White Walkers.
The big news? This week, after weeks of filming at Winterfell, a group of actors have all suddenly headed to Iceland after being in Belfast.
The spoilers started with news that Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) had both arrived in Iceland earlier this week, with Fan site Winter Is Coming posting pictures of the pair in the airport.
Yeah ok, Dany and Jon are going to be north of the Wall. Not all that surprising considering the two are now the most major characters of the show, and they both have a personal fight to pick with the Night King.
But they're not the only ones who were spotted up north. A Reddit user posted a picture of several cast members at an airport Starbucks, having obviously just arrived. The photo includes: Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), John Bradley (Sam Tarly), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), and Joe Dempsie (Gendry).
Unfortunately, Rory McCann (The Hound) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) are missing from the pack, which means a) they decided to stay behind or b) they could have not made it to this fight.
So what does this all mean? Well number one - and most importantly - it means Tormund Giantsbane is alive after the collapsing of the Wall. It also means that there is going to be one badass fight in the south, and one of the aforementioned six will probably die. No one sends that many people south of the Wall for them to all come back alive and well (we're looking at you, Viserion).
But, of course, we won't know anything until 2019, when Season 8 airs. Get ready for one hell of a finale, everyone.
