Ciaran Curry can be seen posing the icy backdrop of Iceland which he posted on Instagram. Curry was honored by Emmys for his marvelous costume work on the previous season’s finale The Winds of Winter.
Meanwhile, another crew from the costume department, Slyvia Lovetank also posted a photo on the social media platform with the caption, “I am Icelandic but our country never fails to amaze.” Lovetank has been in Game of Thrones’ costume unit since Season 3.
It is worth noting that both Lovetank and Curry have recently turned their Instagram profiles private.
So far, no cast had been spotted yet. But if there are costume people, then people who would have to wear the costume should be present in one way or another, right?
Iceland had been a location for scenes that took place outside of the Wall with its snowbound landscape. That leads to speculations that the location will be shoot for the same reason.
