The hit HBO fantasy drama is set to come to a dramatic end on Sunday, but fans won't have to mourn the show's loss for long, as the "Game of Thrones" prequel starring Naomi Watts has begun filming in Belfast, under the working title "Bloodmoon".


Producers have been keeping mum on the details of the characters, but here are four things we know about Watts' character, so far:

  1. The Australian actress will play a "socialite" in the much-anticipated prequel. 
  2. She has a dark secret.
  3. Fan theorists are speculating online that she will play Nissa, wife of Azor "Lord of Light" Ahai, a leading figure of the faith of R’hllor.
  4. Watts will act across lead man, Josh Whitehouse. Legend has it, Azor, forged the magical sword Lightbringer by plunging it through the heart of his beloved in order to defeat the White Walkers.

According to reports, "Bloodmoons" plot is set more than 5 000 years before the events of the current series, the new series will follow the story of the "Children Of The Forest."


The show is expected to premiere by mid-2020.
