Game of Thrones might be over now, but the prequel is on its way as filming for the new series has just begun.
The HBO’s spin-off, which is currently untitled, has started filming its pilot on location (reported by Entertainment Weekly) and the location is very familiar to fans of the original series.
The place is Northern Ireland, which was the main location for shooting all of Game of Thrones‘ eight seasons. There are no further details of whether the new series will shoot in other countries too.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Oscar-nominated actress Richardson recently gave some hints at what to expect from the prequel.
“I have loved the storytelling in that series [Game of Thrones] and the wish and the will is to continue that, [but] with a totally different set of elements, [and] people,” she said.
“The craftsmen are the same – there is a base team that is the same and their work has been phenomenal throughout. I’m just thrilled to be a part of it.”
