The cast and crew of “Game of Thrones” Season 6 are set to return to the location where Daenerys met Dothraki riders in the finale episode of the last season, according to a new report. Meanwhile, Ramin Djawadi talked about composing the music for some of the dramatic episodes on the show, including the shocking scene of Shireen Baratheon (Kerry Ingram).
According to a report by DerryJournal, the crew of the popular TV series may be preparing to start filming soon at Magilligan, in County Derry in Northern Ireland. Signposts indicating that production of the TV series is set to begin are said to have sprung up around the region.
Residents of the area are said to be excited about the production crew returning to film scenes for the next season and are eager to see Magilligan back on the TV screens next year. The report notes that filming is set to begin on Aug. 1 on Binevenagh mountain, and a car park at the St. Aidan’s Church will also be used by the crew.
According to a report by WatchersOnTheWall, the location was previously used in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 in the scene where Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) was surrounded by a horde of Dothraki riders. The report adds that the production crew is using horses to film scenes at this location, suggesting that scenes of Daenerys’ story will be filmed there.
Season 5 of the show featured many shocking events. Speaking to Express, composer Djawadi explained how difficult it was for him to write the music for some of the more controversial scenes on the show. One scene that stood out in his mind was that of Shireen.
Shireen was sacrificed by her father Stannis (Stephen Dillane) to the Lord of Light, with the hope that the sacrifice would help him defeat the Boltons. Djawadi said the music for the burning of the little girl was the hardest for him to write. The character was one of his favorites on the show, and he said the scene was “hard to watch and to work on.”
When asked about “Game of Thrones” Season 6, Djawadi said that he has “no idea” about what is happening but added that “it’s going to be great.” The premiere episode of the next season is expected to air in April 2016.
