The second day of filming for the final season of Game of Thrones is upon us and after an eventful first day which saw car chases, dangerous cliff climbs and bodyguards (and that was only the press corps) day two is expected to be the day when the actors arrive. There is no doubt that security has been stepped up a few notches, presumably after a huge spoiler video was shot in Belfast by a member of the public, and there are more security guards in the city than pigeons!

Rumours are flying around the set faster than one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons. Kit Harington was supposedly spotted by someone on a driving lesson, then it was rumoured he was sleeping in Hotel Excelsior and then it was believed he is still in Iceland.
First it was thought that none of the main actors had arrived in Dubrovnik, but then hair and make-up vans for the principals was spotted and then rumours that three main actors had in fact been spotted. Very few extras have been spotted at all bringing home the theory that main actors will be on screen and not many extras.
However with Day Two of Game of Thrones filming in Dubrovnik starting with torrential rain and a thunder storm we could well see a “washed-out” day and an extension of filming in Dubrovnik.
