Almería in Spain (unofficially) confirmed for Game of Thrones Season 6, extras casting on July 9-10

We reported earlier this month that Almería in the south of Spain (some 150 miles as the raven flies from Seville and its ‘Water Gardens’) was being scouted as a potential location and an almost certain pick (even before that, Girona and Peñíscola were confirmed as the first two new locations for Season 6).

Now Almería has been unofficially confirmed as a shooting location by the sources at Los Siete Reinos, via Ideal.es. Everything is supposed to be moving along smoothly, and the casting of extras is scheduled for July 9th and 10th.

Our friends at Los Siete Reinos find the extras casting curious as everything is pointing in the direction of filming taking place on locations in the countryside (the Tabernas desert in particular) and not in the city. For now, all we can do is speculate. Perhaps we will learn more when we get wind of some details from the mass castings in July (Girona and Peñíscola are scheduled already for next week, on July 1st and 2nd).

    1. Where is this supposed to be, exactly? Some part of Dorne? Wherever the Dothhraki are with Dany? I guess we’ll know better by the time the extras are cast.

      i don’t think there will be a bettle of mareen there is no one to fight, no yunkai.

      i think they will hurry Dany to Westeros, or so i hope. we really need her ther by the end of season 6

    3. Might be a lannister-dorne battle that’s placed there?

      Although in the end, I have no real idea.. No books to base it on and no real clues that point to what this could be.

    4. Dothraki Sea is lush, full of grass – unless the grass has dried up thanks to winter coming, it wouldn’t make sense to have horse lords where theres no grass for the horses to graze

    5. Interesting how the show did not set up the battle of Meeren for season 6, and the battle of Ice basically happened already. They’re diving head straight into The Winds of Winter next season.

    6. Mihnea,

      A year ago I thought the Battle of Meereen would be out since it would cost looooots and Daenerys wouldn’t even be there but now Tyrion is in Meereen, and they’re not going to have him rule in peace. Daenerys has had lines in s5 along the line of “when my enemies come knocking I want peace in the city” and I think Daario and Tyrion have also had lines this season about how many enemies she’s made.

      Jaario roadtrip?

      Probably. I guess they’ll find the ring that Dany dropped. But what happens when they do find her with the Dothraki? And I really hope that Dany doesn’t get brutalized all over again by the Dothraki. I’ve honestly been dreading that since the season ended because unlike the books, Drogon isn’t with her when she encounters the Khalasar.

    8. Mormont,

      I agree, but there also needs to be proper set up for it. She’s clearly made enemies throughout Slaver’s Bay but we haven’t heard anything about Yunkai planning any kind of revenge, have we?

        Quote  Reply

    9. Why does everyone jump to the conclusion that a battle will happen there? Nothing we know of so far implies that. It’s most likely just a location where characters will stroll by. Whether Dany/Dothraki, Jorah/Daario or (hopefully) Dorne…

      That’s a great idea, I actually didn’t think about that. With Dayne pretty much confirmed, it would make sense. If TOJ is happening then that means that we’ll see younger versions of Ned and Howland. And I’m a huge believer of HS=HR so I would love to see more connections and motivations to what I believe are HR’s current actions.

      He’s not that far and I hope that the fact that he was passed out and a bit of a distance from her is just a small, inconsequential detail. But why not just have Dany and Drogon together like at the end of ADWD? I really, really hope that I’m just looking into this too much lol.

    13. Maceless Fan,

      I would say that detail is there to show us that he wont be leaving anytime soon, so she is forced to meet the Dothraki
      He isn’t far, and if she is in danger, then he should be able to sense it and come burn the Dothraki lol
      I mean, just like she was in danger at the pits, if she was to be again, he should come to her rescue.

    14. I thought it might be Vaes Dothrak, but I went back and looked at shots of it in Season 1 set and it’s pretty lush. This is more likely to be Dorne, or perhaps somewhere else in Essos.

    17. Mihnea,

      Surprisingly Vaes Dothrak was filmed in Northern Ireland in Season One.

      It’s amazing how I can be cold and wet one day and find myself in a vast, Africa-like expanse the next, with a clear blue sky and warm weather to boot. We’re at a location called Sandy Brae (on the opposite end of Northern Ireland) filming the entrance into Vaes Dothrak, the city of the horselords. It’s another scene from my episode and an iconic sequence from the book, featuring the lovely Emilia Clarke, Iain Glen (as trusted knight Jorah Mormont), Harry Lloyd (as Daenerys’s brother, the exiled prince Viserys), and Jason Momoa (as Khal Drogo, commander of a savage tribe of horse riders called the Dothraki.)

      This location is unlike any in Northern Ireland; the terrain really does feel like another continent. We have two massive pedestals set up, upon which our CG wizards will render the mighty rearing bronze stallions that make up the Horse Gate – the main entrance of Vaes Dothrak. It’s a difficult shot to pull off: Horseback “walk-and-talks” are trickier than you might think. But we’re two takes down, and the big entrance shot is looking great – even without the color-correcting, music, CGI, etc., it’s breathtaking.

      Yunkish army

      before finally heading to Westeros.

      You’re welcome! Who knows, they may decide to change up the look of Vaes Dothrak (or show more of the city) so not sure we can rule it out quite yet.

      Personally I’d love for this location to be TOJ. Sergio Leone shot some of his iconic westerns in Almería. Tower of Joy always felt like some mythic scene out of a dusty western like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Just replace the pistols with swords and Clint Eastwood with Sean Bean 🙂

      The Dothraki seemed to be circling her celebration rather than to intimidate her. I guess they know that this is Drogons territory and that she has birthed dragons so will see Drogon as the SWMTW. Or perhaps they simply want to take their prize back to join the Dosh Khaleen

      Maceless Fan: . I’ve honestly been dreading that since the season ended because unlike the books, Drogon isn’t with her when she encounters the Khalasar.

      Drogon is resting very close by. I believe the show decided to not show him with her at the very end because like all the other main characters, they wanted to leave her fate a little uncertain. Dramatic tension. But the “Stallion that mounts the world” has to start coming into play sooner or later.

    32. If Dany doesn’t make it to Westeros by the end of season 6 or at the very least begin the move, then I’m going to become increasingly convinced her story is one of the better fake outs of all time in fiction and she never makes it there. If they are really going 7 or 7 and a half seasons, she needs to make the move and soon otherwise I don’t see how her arrival has any impact at all in the plot that late in the story.

      Ginevra,

      Im excited for something I don’t know! woo!

      The Tower of Joy scene was in the books but not in the show. It feeds into a theory that is also well supported by the show, though, and so it might not be too much of a spoiler, after hanging out here. I’ll put it behind the code in case you don’t want to know.

      The Tower of Joy supports the R+L = J fan theory. If you don’t know that huge theory, and you don’t want to know, you should stop reading now.

      In the books, when Ned recalls Robert’s Rebellion, he finds his sister Lyanna at the Tower of Joy, guarded by kingsguard, dying in a pool of blood on a bed of blue roses. Most suspect that the blood was from childbirth, the birth of Jon Snow, and this is how Lyanna died. The kingsguards’ presence is explained if we believe that Lyanna married Rhaegar, which makes Jon Snow be the legitimate son of Rhaegar – a prince. (One of the kingsguards is Arthur Dayne, with his famous Sword of the Morning, and casting news implies that they’ll be casting Arthur Dayne for Season 6. We only know of this Tower of Joy scene that would be relevant to show, since Arthur Dayne perished at the Tower of Joy.)

      The most logical reason that they would do a flashback to this scene, especially since Ned is dead, is that D&D plan to reveal Jon’s parents as Lyanna and Rhaegar, making Jon the prince that was promised, Azor Ahai, part of the three-headed dragon, and definitely, most assuredly, alive.

      Given the tone of the last of the author’s essays on Jon, I’m going to be intentionally goofy and treat this as confirmation that he’s coming back.

    37. That location is probably where Dany will land in Dorne.

      This is how I see season 6 for Dany :
      – first half of the season : Tyrion and Varys handle the shit in Meereen, while Dany, Daario and Jorah handle the Dothrakis and then come back to Meereen.
      – second half of the season : they sail to Westeros (maybe they’ll leave Meereen to the red priestess), they land in Dorne and when they want to conquer it, Doran joins them.

      In the same time, some shit will happen in the North, maybe Sansa will conquer Winterfell with Brienne/Davos/Rickon but when they finally get ride of the Boltons… they learn that the Wall has fallen and the WW are coming.

      => See you next year for season 7.

      I have no theory I love for the third head of the dragon beyond the idea that there should be a third person. Wimsey thinks that Young Griff really is Rhaegar’s Aegon and so the third, but I thought he was the prophesied mummer’s dragon. Many think Tyrion or Arya, but I’m positive neither of them is a Targaryen, and I feel like the prophecy intends for all three to be Targaryen.

    44. I very recently started reading this site to help me through my off season GOT withdrawal. It has been a fun read. Of all the sites I’ve visited, and I’ve probably been to most of them, this one has been the most informative and the least acrid. Love all your theories and tid bits of information about next season. I’ve been watching the show from the beginning. I read all of GGRM’s finished books between seasons 4 & 5. I was so waiting to see how B & W would handle Jon’s death scene and Danny’s dragon ride. I was not disappointed and can’t wait to see what happens next.

      The only theory I have to contribute is that I think at some point Bran will warg into a dragon because the 3 eyed crow told him he would never walk again but that he would fly. I have no idea how this would fit into the big picture. LOL

      You should love the off-season on this site. It’s the best place for bits of news about casting and filming, and we all have great fun trying to figure out what each li’l tidbit means. It also tends to be a bit mellower during the off-season, and by that I mean some of the on-season vitriol which is still floating about tends to dissipate.

    47. Geralt of Rivia,

      I know about that script. I actually think that the scene leans more toward proving Dany isn’t AA precisely because someone, particularly a Red Priestess someone, claims that Dany definitely is AA. That scene mirrors what we’ve seen with another Red Priestess who was completely convinced that Stannis was AA.

      IMO, GRRM is never going to explicitly tell us the answer to a prophecy, especially not a prophecy this big, before he shows us the answer. Show not tell is the predominant philosophy of writing and definitely a philosophy to which George subscribes. He has done a fantastic job of subtly but continually showing us Jon might be AA. But almost all of his focus for Stannis was telling and not showing. Dany is about half and half, showing and telling, but my money is definitely on the one that is 100% showing and 0% telling. I could well be wrong, but that’s how I think George rolls.

      There seems to be some small debate over whether TPTWP is AA for certain, but I think it is likely.

    49. As for the swordsman,

      assuming this is Tower of Joy, how is it going to connect to the present? If it is Bran-vision, that’s all well and good, but doesn’t this revelation just dead-end with Bran? He’s stuck under a tree at the end of the world. How would this information spread or become accepted? If it is not Bran, it could be presented as a memory (as was Cersei’s flashback), but the only person who remembers is Howland Reed, and we haven’t even met him yet. Or have we? If it is not either of these mechanisms, what mechanism would be used to integrate such a scene?

      Revealing rlj to the audience has always been an easy proposition. Revealing it to the people of Westeros in a way that many would believe, not so much.

      Welcome! 🙂 A raven? They fly too. I didn’t like the idea of Bran warging a human (Hodor) and I also wouldn’t like the idea of warging a dragon. A dragon is such a magical creature, “fire made flesh” and all that, and for me, it would be a little bit of a let-down if they could be simply warged. But…… we’ll see!

      That is a very popular theory talked about a lot on this site and others. To dive deeper in that theory, many people believe Bran is like the Anakin Skywalker of the GoT world. He has been misusing his powers (with Hodor) and doing things you aren’t suppose to do. Plus he is a kid that’s family and basically everything he has loved has been ripped away from him.

      I believe he will go on a blind vengeance type vendetta and taking over one of Dany’s dragons will be the highpoint of that. I think Bran will turn to the darkside and need to be killed. =(

      That’s certainly one popular theory, but why then would all of the prophecies be singular regarding the “prince” or “one” that was promised? It would seem equally strange for one person to be reborn into two, right? Although, if AA doesn’t equal TPTWP, then one could be one and the other the other.

      It’s a bit too late for it to be another Red Herring.More and more it looks like Dany is the real deal.Stannis was obviously fake,but that doesn’t mean Dany will be too.She literally fullfiled every aspect of this prophecy…unlike Jon.

      Drogon was in Valaria a few episodes earlier. Stories of him would be everywhere from one end of the continent to the other. Even if they could get in the right ballpark, finding a (hitherto unmentioned) lair would not be easy, nor would picking the right direction to walk from there, and the right direction to walk even if they found the horse tracks and decided to follow them, nor would it be easy to see where the horses circled (especially since all this would take weeks, and the circle wouldn’t look much different than any other place they stopped). Even if they got that far, finding the ring would be near impossible. I got 20 acres of field out behind my parent’s place. I’ll go throw a ring out there, and let’s see how long it takes you to find it. I won’t be waiting up for you. Heck, I spent 30 minutes looking for my dropped keys in a mowed lawn. Acres and acres of high grass? It would take a miracle.

      In any case, who is going to tell the “stories” that lead them to the lair – the Dothraki! But they already know where Dany is.

    61. Two things from the books, as Dany and Drogon were warming up for take off, scattering her supporters in the pit,she didn’t yell “I’ll be back” and I hope Drogon remembers his lines “Come with me if you wanta live” when he lands by Dany.

    62. Chad Brick: I got 20 acres of field out behind my parent’s place. I’ll go throw a ring out there, and let’s see how long it takes you to find it. I won’t be waiting up for you. Heck, I spent 30 minutes looking for my dropped keys in a mowed lawn. Acres and acres of high grass? It would take a miracle.

      Drop a ring in the 20 acre field, and then bring a thousand horses to that field and have them run in tight circles around the ring. If you do that, especially as tight as the Dothraki in the video, I won’t have 20 acres to check but rather a radius of at most 4′, so pi*r^2 = pi*4^2 = 16*pi, which is approximately 50 square feet, or the size of a very small bedroom or a spacious walk-in closet. And I’ll know to start in the very center of the circle, too, so I won’t really have to cover all 50 square feet. I’d take that bet. It might take me more than 30 minutes, but I’m tenacious.

      Drogon was in Valaria a few episodes earlier. Stories of him would be everywhere from one end of the continent to the other. Even if they could get in the right ballpark, finding a (hitherto unmentioned) lair would not be easy, nor would picking the right direction to walk from there, and the right direction to walk even if they found the horse tracks and decided to follow them, nor would it be easy to see where the horses circled (especially since all this would take weeks, and the circle wouldn’t look much different than any other place they stopped).

      I absolutely agree that finding Drogon’s lair, starting out in Meereen with only a vague sense of the direction he left in, would be ridiculously unlikely. If it is only Daario and Jorah, I’d give them a 1% chance, IRL. In the show, though, I give them a 99.9% chance because that’s how TV magic works. However, if they got even close enough to track that particular khalasar, I think their job would be essentially over. Thousands of horses running in concentric circles in the middle of a field is exceedingly suspicious, unless you’re following a circus or rodeo. Certainly, any tracker worth his salt would investigate such an anomaly.

      I don’t think Danaerys is the strongest candidates, she’s more like a red herring and a good one not like Stannis…
      They are pointing more evidences of R+L=J preparing for the ending twist…
      Looks like I’m a big Jonfag but here’s why I think like that :

      In ADWD we learn that the Prince that was Promised will be from Jaehaenerys II lineage, Rhaegar’s grandfather. So it gives us 2 candidates : Daenerys and Aegon. But with R+L=J, Jon is a candidate. And it’s twist.
      We know from GRRM that Howland Reed knows too much about “the central mystery of the book” : http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/1261
      The only mystery Howland Reed is link to, is the Tower of Joy leading to think that R+L=J is correct.

      Like TheBlackSwan, I’ve been thinking about this red herring thing, but I still think that it is one – not a new red herring, at all, but a reinforcement of Dany as AA. Why would George do this to us this late in the books, though: that’s what I’ve been pondering. And my answer is this: he’s setting up prophecies as things that are true but dangerous because people inevitably get them wrong and do horrible things because they are wrong, with Shireen and Selyse and Stannis jumping to the front of my mind. George even told us he was going to do this, in this quote that I keep giving and giving:

      Gorghan of Old Ghis once wrote that a prophecy is like a treacherous woman. She takes your member in her mouth, and you moan with the pleasure of it and think, how sweet, how fine, how good this is… and then her teeth snap shut and your moans turn to screams. That is the nature of prophecy, said Gorghan. Prophecy will bite your prick off every time.

      We think how sweet, how fine, how good it is that Dany (or Stannis) is AA and then George bites off our privates. “Psych, I was only fooling, Bitches!”
