Game of Thrones is now part of modern pop-culture, and every year, a huge lot of people try to make it into the show. Moreover, casting time is also speculation time as fans start wondering which character of the book are they bringing in and more.
GOT’s casting call character list
General: The series is looking for a white actor between 40 and 55 years old who can use a British RP accent which is a specific way to talk usually associated with a particular social group. He is a senior military officer, and the actor is needed for the week of September 6th.
Warrior: The casting staff is looking for a white actor between 35 and 45 years old with a neutral non-posh English accent. The actor needs to be a good fighter as the character is a bruiser with fierce instincts. It might be a vital part because production said it was perfect for a top-notch veteran actor. The shoot is scheduled for October.
Lieutenant: They are looking for a non-white, Middle Eastern descendant who is in his 20’s. The character is described as an athletic, physically fit, disciplined warrior with a wise appearance. He is set to shoot in September and November during three weeks.
Priest: They want a white actor with RP accent and a characterful face on his 60’s. He is described as a venerable priest with moral authority and gravitas. The role is set to film one week, starting September 22.
Gate Guard: The show is looking for someone with charisma, wit, and timing on his 20’s. The staff requires a “confident, characterful, straight-talking Northern lad with a great face to play across a very excellent series of scenes.” He would shoot in October and November.
City Guard: They are casting someone with RP accent in his 30’s. The character is set to intercept a suspicious-looking person during his night patrol. The role is set to film during a week in October.
Young Lord: They are looking for a white actor with RP accent in his late 20’s. He is described as a tall and handsome young lord. He is set to film in the week of September 20.
Merchant: They are not casting a specific race actor, but the character is on his 40’s. The character is a non-combatant and he appears at an inn during an evening. The role is set to shoot the first week of November.
Lovely Lady: As the merchant character, the casting is not looking for a specific race actress and she is required to do full nudity scenes. The character is described as a young courtesan sure of her own mind. The part is scheduled to shoot for one week in October.
The shooting will begin later this year as, according to showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, “Winter is here” and they are going to use the weather at the end of the year to serve their purposes as a sunny weather does not really work for them right now.
Confirmed actors for season 7 and season 6 recap
The 7th season will have seven episodes, and it is very different from all the previous seasons that had ten episodes each.
Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau are all signed up for the 7th and 8th season.
Like the 6th season, this one will consist of original content that does not appear in George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ series, but it will adapt material of his upcoming two novels ‘The Winds Of Winter’ and ‘A Dream Of Spring’.
In the 6th season, Jon Snow was proclaimed the King in the North, while Bran learned Jon Snow is not his brother but rather his cousin.
The fans saw Dany set for Westeros with the forces of the Unsullied, the Dothraki, and the Ironborn, accompanied by Varys, Missandey, Olenna Tyrell, Tyrion and the women of Dorne and her dragons.
The Targaryen is on her way to reclaiming the Iron Throne, but a series of events put Cersei Lannister on the throne. So basically, everybody wants to see Daenerys and Cersei going at it.
The writers have not given any clues about what to expect about the ending, although R.R. Martin hinted a bittersweet ending for his ‘A Song And Fire books.’
