Game Of Thrones prequel star Naomi Watts insists fans ‘won’t be let down’
Naomi Watts has stated the upcoming Game Of Thrones prequel spin-off ‘won’t let fans down’, as filming kicks off in Northern Ireland.
The upcoming spin-off, provisionally titled Bloodmoon, is set to take place thousands of years before the main show – charting the descent from the Age Of Heroes.
It’s believed filming on the spin-off has started ‘in various locations’ across County Down and the north coast of Ireland last week, the same place where many scenes for the first season of Game Of Thrones took place.
Naomi Watts, who plays an unknown leading role in the spin-off, has spoken about her fears of following one of the biggest shows on television.
Speaking to AP Entertainment, Naomi said: ‘It is intimidating. It’s very exciting, having just come off the last series, where the world was blowing up over it.
‘Everything was Game Of Thrones related. All the advertising on TV, every article – everyone’s jumping on that bandwagon. So, it is scary.’
She added: ‘Hopefully, those fans come along and get to find something new and interesting in this world as well.
‘I think they won’t be let down, it’s a great team of people they’ve put together.’
Alongside Naomi, the show boasts an impressive cast including John Simm, Miranda Richardson, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, and Richard McCabe.
Bloodmoon is penned by screenwriter Jane Goldman and Game Of Thrones author George RR Martin.
An official synopsis for the spin-off reads: ‘Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game Of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age Of Heroes into its darkest hour.
‘And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.’
Game Of Thrones went out with a controversial bang last month in its eighth season, with many more spin-offs believed to be in the pipeline.
Game Of Thrones: Bloodmoon is scheduled to be released in 2020.
