However you felt about the final episode, it already feels like so very long ago that we said goodbye to Westeros and its surviving citizens.

Now many of us are turning our attentions to the upcoming prequel, which will take us back many years before the bloodsoaked family drama of the HBO megahit.

Tentatively called Bloodmoon, the prequel has a hopeful release date at sometime in 2020, and will star the likes of Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse and Miranda Richardson.

Now a photograph has leaked from the top secret set in Italy’s Grotta del Turco, which shows Watts wearing a gleaming gold gown and blonde hair piled up high on her head.

Not too much is known about the character Watts will play, however she has been intriguingly described as ‘a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret’. Some diligent fans believed Watts will be playing Nissa Nissa, the ill-fated wife of Azor Aha.

Watts has – completely understandably – expressed feeling a little bit nervous at the prospect of entering such a fiercely beloved fantasy universe.

Speaking with net-a-porter, Watts admitted:

I still have fears about [the show], […] I don’t really know what to prepare for…I didn’t start watching until I was approached about this job.

But my brother [photographer Ben Watts], who is heavily into it, told me ‘Under no circumstances are you going to turn this down.’

Bloodmoon – which was initially titled The Long Night – will be set around 10,000 years before Arya Stark smashed The Night King to smithereens.

As for the plot itself, the following synopsis has been given:

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, only one thing is for sure: it’s not the story we think we know.

In a notable change to its mammoth predecessor, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss won’t be running the show, with the script firmly in the hands of English screenwriter Jane Goldman (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children).
