Iceland, a thinly populated country, is getting more crowded as "Game of Thrones" continues filming in the wintry location. More actors have been spotted in the area, confirming certain plot points that will take place in season 7.
It was previously reported that Iain Glen had been sighted in Iceland, joining Kit Harington and Joe Dempsie for filming. Glen's Jorah Mormont was last seen traveling to look for a cure for his greyscale. It can be assumed that he meets with Harington's Jon Snow and Dempsie's Gendry (who hasn't been seen since season 3) along the way, and joins the King in the North on his quest to retrieve a wight.
Now, Liam Cunningham and Kristofer Hivju, who respectively play Davos Seaworth and Tormund Giantsbane, have also been spotted in Iceland. A fan managed to take pictures with Cunningham and Dempsie in the country. Rory McCann is also reportedly in Iceland, according to a fan who was staying at the same hotel as The Hound.
Harington, on the other hand, apparently left Iceland briefly, but is back in the country — presumably to film a scene at Black Sand Beach. Filming at the famous beach is speculated to involve a scene that depicts two boats on shore. Judging by the looks of it, Black Sand Beach may be the location for Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, a place beyond the Wall. This is where Jon and his allies travel to where they encounter the terrifying White Walkers and their horde of undead wights.
Since "Game of Thrones" is slowly nearing its end, storylines are colliding and characters who have never met are joining forces. And while Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) continues on her quest for the Iron Throne, which is currently occupied by Cersei (Lena Headey), Jon knows that the real war is against the White Walkers. It is expected that he will retrieve a wight in order to prove to the others that the White Walker threat is real and imminent.
"Game of Thrones" season 7 is expected to premiere in the summer.
