Re: Game of Thrones: Season 3. TV Series Discussion. NO BOOK SPOILERS...NONE
They film a lot of scenes very close to where I live in Ireland, there's principal filming in Belfast of course, but all around the countryside and coast here get used too. I know plenty of people who have scrounged extras work on it etc. E.G. Walder Frey's wife who Catelyn killed is apparently my friend's sister's uni friend. (Disclaimer: could be total bullshit) and a few girls on my course got work as Winterfell extras. Lucky beggars
The aforementioned sister is also a theatre worker here, and she shared some lurid stories with me the other night about Conleth Hill and Ian McElhinney from her encounters with them in the theatre scene. Too libellous to repeat though. Conleth Hill visited my school when I was there a few years back, he seemed very cool and approachable, but has apparently been known to be not so on occasion.
