Over a hundred days after filming first began on location and on the sets in Northern Ireland, “Game of Thrones” is now officially done with another major stage of their season 3 production. As Cat Taylor (who is also responsible for the Making of Game of Thrones blog online) declared on Saturday evening, one filming unit has earned a much-deserved break to relax and celebrate.
Yes, this means that there was a rather elaborate wrap party that was held for the cast and crew in the area … and cake was very much involved.
Really, we can’t think of a more delicious way to celebrate a show being done with filming in a certain region, and if nothing else, the picture of the cake Taylor tweeted out looks really incredibly, especially with the dragon wings and the iron throne at the very top. (It’s almost of those cakes you don’t even want to cut up in fear of destroying its beauty, even if it is probably delicious.)
So where does production go from here? They have already been working extensively in Morocco as of late, and they should be wrapping in the African nation by the end of the month. From there, there really is only one location left to shoot in Iceland, and that will be the most tiresome for the cast and crew that are there next month. Northern Ireland can be tough with the short days, the cold, and the rainy weather, but Iceland is worse on two of the three accounts. Plus, there are also some high winds that can come at you from time to time.
Is this cake worthy to you of the Seven Kingdoms? If you want to hear some more thoughts on the season via Kit Harrington, all you have to do is hit up the story at this link.
