We spotted Iain Glen of Game of Thrones fame filming a movie at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Game of Thrones fans will be happy to know that Jorah Mormont is in town, even if there are no Khaleesis or dragons in tow.

Iain Glen, who plays soldier Jorah in the popular television series, was recently seen filming at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, looking dapper in a black suit. We almost didn't recognise him!

Crew members and extras on set said that they were shooting Eye in the Sky. The movie, which is directed by South Africa’s Gavin Hood, looks at the world of military drones. It also stars Oscar winners Colin Firth and Helen Mirren, as well as Emmy winner Aaron Paul.

Grimsby, a comedy film about a British spy with an idiot brother who’s a football hooligan, also stars Sacha Baron Cohen, who wrote the script, Penélope Cruz, Isla Fisher, Gabourey Sidibe and Mark Strong.
