According to the most current casting calls, the show is looking to bring in several minor roles for filming in Northern Ireland and in Spain over the next couple months.
These roles include ( Spoilers!) :
A fighting pit announcer: a charismatic master of ceremonies with a powerful voice who presides over a stadium with thousands of spectators, and controls the crowds well. The pit is a human fighting pit, it’s noted. He’ll have a role in some spectacular scenes, and is needed for 2 weeks in Spain, commencing Thursday October 16th.
A despondent man: a man in despair who wants to die. He’ll be seen weeping before being soothed and led to the death he seeks. This is a small role, shooting in Northern Ireland on October 20th.
Joss: A father of a 10 year old terminally ill girl. He brings the child to a place where her suffering can be ended, once he knows there is no other way to ease her pain. This part films in Northern Ireland on October 30th.
Loboda: A man in his 40s, the powerful leader of a cannibalistic tribe and a take-no-prisoners killer. The show is looking for an actor who is Eastern European or Russian, or can use an Eastern European accent. The actor must be bald or have a shaved head, be athletic in build, fit and strong. Loboda has a long scene with leading cast members where a battle plan is discussed. The actor is needed for shoots in Northern Ireland on November 5th.
A wilding elder: A rough warrior who is part of a community of guerrilla fighters. He appears in a long, tense scene where there is a debate amongst a group of warring communities about battle strategy. He has a few lines in an important scene with leading cast. The role shoots in Northern Ireland on November 17th.
Sue the Fury: An announcer for Daznak’s Pit, clearly! And the despondent man and Joss are visitors to the House of Black and White. Loboda has to be a Thenn leader, with the bald head and cannibal tribe. Sounds like they’re sticking with Russian actors if they can since they had Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr. What does everyone think is going on with the wildlings?
