Westeros Blog: Malta Filming Update

Recommended Posts

There is an interesting note for followers of progress on HBO’s Game of Thrones series in his post announcing his cancelling an appearance at New York Comic Con.

Besides noting he plans to visit Belfast (main location for shooting of the series) after attending Octocon in Dublin, he notes the possibility that he’ll also visit Malta (site of location shoots for many of the scenes set in Pentos and regions east). As Octocon takes place in mid-October, it seems like the Malta location shooting will cover the bulk of that month and a good part of September as well. As we’ve previously reported, the Malta shoot has been stated to take six weeks. Mid-September through the end of October seems likely now.

Bah, of course they're going to Malta now, one year after I left.

IIRC, October was when the rainy season started, with a fair few storms. Hopefully it won't cause too much trouble. September was nice though, not quite as scorching hot as August was, but still warm, and only a bit of rain.
