Will Brexit Impact Game of Thrones Funding?

Will Brexit Impact Game of Thrones Funding?
While probably not at the top of a list of concerns regarding the UK's exit from the EU, some are wondering how the historical vote could effect the entertainment industry.

Game of Thrones is immensely popular in the US, and with the show's primary filming location being in Northern Ireland, some feel that financing could become an issue. But, HBO has made it clear that they don't feel that is the case.

"We do not anticipate that the result of the EU Referendum will have any material effect on HBO producing Game Of Thrones," HBO said in a statement. "This statement is to confirm that Northern Ireland Screen's production funding comes from the Northern Ireland Executive through Invest NI and does not use monies provided from European funded programmes," the organization wrote. "We look forward to business as usual."

Game Of Thrones films in the Titanic Studios as well as various locations across Northern Ireland including the North Coast, Tollymore Forest Park, Castle Ward and the banks of the Quoile in Downpatrick.
