Westeros Blog: Filming the Vale

Recommended Posts

We know that filming is presently going on for scenes set in Castle Black, as actor Luke McEwan (cast as Rast) tweeted he had finished his first day of work this past Friday, and we know that the Hand’s tourney is set to film starting around this coming Friday. But it seems something else is up for mid-August: shooting scenes set at the Eyrie and/or Vale of Arryn.

Or, at least, that’s what Brendan McCormack’s agents report on his profile page, indicating that he begins filming in mid-August. McCormack, cast as Ser Vardis Egan, will have a somewhat expanded role compared to the novel according to author George R.R. Martin, who indicated that he’ll be taking some of Ser Brynden Tully’s role.

At a guess, they’re either going to be able to make use of some of the exterior sets (such as the area of the tourney ground, or perhaps even Magheramorne quarry) to represent parts of the Vale of Arryn and the Mountains of the Moon, thereby minimizing amount of travel the crew has to do, or they’ll be doing some interior shoots at Paint Hall to represent the Eyrie.

It's also possible that one way to expand the Vardis Eagen role will be to have him show up at the Tourney of the Hand. I know it doesn't jive completely with the books, but rather than have a whole raft of nameless knights who come and go and never seen again after the tourney, might as well have a few more we see again as characters. Maybe he'll take the place of Bronze Yohnn Royce, who if I recall did quite well at the tourney.

It's an interesting idea. He could have then departed back for the Vale.
