But Naomi did not ignore the intimidating parts about joining such a beloved franchise.

& # 39; It's intimidating. It's very exciting. And yes, just from the last series, where the world blows over it. & # 39;

The over-the-top hype was worried about meeting everyone's towering expectations.

& # 39; Everything was related to Game of Thrones. All advertising on TV, every article – everyone jumps on that music car. So it's scary, she explained

The Mulholland Drive talent said she hoped fans & # 39; new and interesting & # 39; pieces of the show will find to love.

& # 39; Hopefully those fans come along and can also find something new and interesting in this world & # 39 ;, she continued: & # 39; I think they will not be abandoned. It is a great team of people who have put them together. & # 39;

Only a month after HBO & # 39; s Game of Thrones ended, filming has already started on the untitled spin-off series.

Filming has begun off the coast of Northern Ireland, according to The Belfast Telegraph, with other sites set up for filming, including Titanic Studios in Belfast.

The city of Belfast served as the main production hub for Game of Thrones during the eight-year period at HBO.

Although little is known about this new series, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin in one Entertainment per week interview back in November that the show is placed about 5,000 years before the events of his books and the flagship show.

& # 39; Westeros is a very different place & # 39 ;, Martin said in that interview. & # 39; There is no King & # 39; s Landing. There is no iron throne. & # 39;

& # 39; There are no Targaryens – Valyria has hardly begun to rise with its dragons and the great empire that it has built, & # 39; he added. & # 39; We are dealing with a different and older world and hopefully that will be part of the fun of the series. & # 39;

The English beauty leads a cast that also includes Miranda Richardson, Jamie Campbell Bower, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Josh Whitehouse, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

It is not known how long it will take to complete the production of the pilot episode, written by serial maker Jane Goldman and directed by S.J. Clarkson.
