Expect genuine spoilers, blurry telescopic lens photos and much theorising over set locations, as filming on Game of Thrones season 6 production has commenced.

Dean-Charles Chapman, who plays King Tommen Baratheon, posted a photo of himself with Eugene Simon (Lancel Lannister) yesterday, alongside the hashtag #GOTS6.

Earlier in the week he was pictured in a tweet by Isaac Wright (Bran Stark) alongside Nell Tiger Free (Myrcella Baratheon, who was presumed dead in season 5).

"Oh Belfast, it's good to be back," Wright wrote, referencing Game of Thrones' Ireland base.

"I can't say a lot, but I am back this season and it's going to get particularly interesting with Bran," he revealed to the Irish Examiner earlier in the week. "He has some interesting visions."

The most intriguing potential spoiler to come out of filming so far is the choice of Castillo de Zafra in Guadalajara, Spain, which fans are speculating could serve as the Tower of Joy and the setting for a flashback that reveals Jon Snow was not Ned Stark's bastard but the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

Game of Thrones season 6 is expected to launch in April 2016.
