HOUSE OF THE DRAGON begins production in Cornwall

HBO's House of the Dragon, a prequel series to Game of Thrones, has begun production in the United Kingdom. Filming is set to begin shortly in Cornwall, with locations around St. Michael's Mount and Newquay already being dressed for filming.

Warner Brothers-branded trucks were spotted setting up lighting and camera rigging near Penhale Camp, Holywell, Newquay, whilst major exterior set construction was seen underway at St. Michael's Mount. A giveaway is that the set at St. Michael's Mount was emblazoned with the sigil of House Velaryon of Driftmark, a major house in the new series.

It also appears that filming may be taking place at Restormel Castle, whilst casting for extra has also been underway in Cornwall for the series.

Based on this information, I would expect actual shooting to begin imminently, maybe this week.
