Leaked pictures from Ireland show a brand new set being built for “Game of Thrones” Season 6. Cast member Sophie Turner is said to have been spotted at the same filming location of the show, which may be the set for Winterfell.
A set of pictures posted on Belfast Live shows a new set for the show being built at the County Antrim village of Moneyglass in Northern Ireland. It is still unclear what the set will be used for in the show, but the report speculates the set may be a barracks or maybe a part of Winterfell.
The report also notes cast member Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow, has been spotted multiple times in Belfast and was most recently seen in Banbridge, Ireland. Fans have been speculating the actor may be back in the next Season of the show.
Another cast member reportedly spotted near Moneyglass is Turner, who plays Sansa Stark. WatchersOnTheWall said some fans reported seeing the actress at the location. The report notes the set built in the area last year was used to film scenes of Winterfell, and if Turner is filming her scenes at the location, it would suggest the set will once again be used to show the castle of House Stark in “Game of Thrones” Season 6.
Meanwhile, HBO announced in a tweet the complete Season 5 Digital HD will be released Aug. 31, and the Blu-ray and DVD sets will be released by March 15. The bonus content for the Digital HD version includes an introduction to the fantasy realm of Dorne, details about the weapons created for the show, some of the characters of Dorne, a look at the poisons in Westeros and a day in the life of cast members on the set.
Commenting on the post, some fans expressed disappointment about having to wait so long for the release of the DVD. The premiere episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 is expected to air in April 2016. [Source]
