A part-time ‘extra’ with Game of Thrones, who denies assault occasioning actual bodily harm, will contest the charge in mid-July.

At an earlier date the defendant was not present at Ballymena Magistrates Court because he was working on the show.

David Trenier (33), whose address was given as Carnlea Road North, which is near Tildarg, is accused of committing the assault on January 12 this year.

He was present at Thursday’s Court.

Game of Thrones has, in recent years, been filmed at a number of locations including in Northern Ireland.

The TV series has a cult following and film locations have included Moneyglass near Ballymena.

Famously, scenes shot at the ‘Dark Hedges’ near Ballymoney in County Antrim helped transform the narrow tree-lined road into a major tourist attraction.
