Game of Thrones, HBO's worldwide smash-hit TV adaptation of George R.R Martin's best-selling books could be filmed in future on the Swedish holiday island of Gotland.

Olivia Munck, executive producer of TV and Film production company, The Line Gotland, says they were asked in August to shoot location stills of the medieval walled city of Visby and some isolated farmhouses on the Baltic Island and send them for consideration to HBO in the US.

"It would be great for the local economy and for tourism with people wanting to see where it was shot.

Since the first series began in 2011, a lot of outside locations set in the mythical North, have been filmed in Northern Ireland, which offers attractive tax-breaks to Hollywood productions.
