The uproxx is reporting that the ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cast is filming in brutal weather conditions
THEY GOT THEIR WISH BUT WITH A MONKEY’S PAW LEVEL TWIST
Page Six reports that cast members stationed in Iceland, including Kit Harington, Liam Cunningham, Kristofer Hivju, and a certain returning fan-favorite character, “have been shooting amid 100 mph winds and a minus 25 celsius wind chill.” Or converted into Fahrenheit: really f’ing cold.
A SOURCE ON THE SET SAID: DAYLIGHT IS SCARCE HERE
A source on the set said, “Daylight is scarce here [five to six hours a day]. Super jeeps are needed to bring in equipment, and much is then transported by hand… The actors are made up and dressed in hotels and driven to location 90 percent ready to shoot… Shelter is provided by ‘Russian tents’ that are anchored down, and able to be heated, and [can] withstand 100 mph winds.”
And the winds made it hard to record the dialogue between characters. The insider continued, “High winds caused words to be ‘whipped away’ — shouting became the norm. And despite the cold, there was an issue with a lack of snow in the lowland locations.” (Via)
