“Oh… I’m a monster? Perhaps you should speak to me more softly, then. Monsters are dangerous and just now kings are dying like flies”
Where was Game of Thrones season 3 filmed?
Most of the interior studio filming are again shot in the Paint Hall studios in Belfast, Northern Ireland, like in the previous seasons.
Exterior filming location representing the scenes in the north and Riverlands are on various locations throughout Northern Ireland. The filming locations of scenes that take place beyond the wall are in the Nordic and glacier environment of Iceland. For the exterior scenes in Kingslanding, the producers return to Dubrovnik, Croatia, and its beautiful medieval walls and coastline.
New in Game of Thrones season 3 are filming locations in Morocco which double the locations in Essos. The beautiful old city of Essaouira, for example, represents Daenerys Targaryen travels to Astapor. Also new to the series is a filming location in Los Angeles, USA. The reason for the producers to choose Los Angeles is probably different than you may think. In episode 7 of season 3 Brienne of Tarth has to fight a bear in a pit but the restrictions on international transport of large animals are so strict that the producers decided to film the scenes in a reproduced pit on the parking lot of a film studio in Los Angeles.
