Game of Thrones returns to Calgary to shoot scenes for Season 7

Maisie Williams, a.k.a. Arya Stark, has been spotted in Calgary and Banff over the last couple of days, apparently taking a break from shooting scenes with Alberta wolves for the seventh season of Game of Thrones.

The 19-year-old actress reportedly sang karaoke at Ducky’s in Calgary and has visited various areas in Banff.

An Alberta film insider confirmed Game of Thrones was shooting in the Calgary area over the long weekend. This is at least the third time the hit series has filmed in Alberta.

Filming took place at the rural ranch north of Calgary of animal trainer Andrew Simpson, who has provided wolves for Game of Thrones in the past.

Simpson’s 10-year-old Arctic wolf Quigly played Ghost in the series, the direwolf of Jon Snow.

In early 2016, a small crew shot scenes at the Calgary Film Centre with the wolf. Footage was also shot near Calgary in 2015.

Simpson is a veteran animal trainer who specializes in wolves. He also worked on the Alberta-shot Oscar winner, The Revenant.
