Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was spotted in Banff earlier this week, and one simple question was on everyone’s tongues: why?

Well, as it turns out, Game of Thrones fans can look forward to spotting some of Alberta’s wildlife in the next season of the show!

Fascinated with Alberta’s wolf population, the show’s film crew headed out to Banff to capture shots of some of the world’s biggest wolves.

Direwolves, one of the shows most popular concoctions, are an incredibly oversized, intelligent wolf species.

Here’s a fun fact for you: there’s an wolf from the province already being featured! Quigly, named Ghost in the show, is trained just north of Calgary by the owner and operator of Instinct Animals for Film, Andrew Simpson.
