Extras casting is finally underway in the north of Spain for Game of Thrones season 7! Filming in the north will be centered in the Basque towns of Zumaia and Bermeo. ModExpor International has released their requirements for the casting taking place in Zumaia, starting tomorrow. The casting call confirms Game of Thrones will be filming in the area from October 21st through the 30th, and offers a few hints as to what we can expect for shooting in these towns.
According to the announcement, casting will occur tomorrow, Monday October 10th, at 10:00am, at the Culture House in Zumaia.
Game of Thrones is searching for men only, in the 20-50 years old age range. No women are needed in this area.
For candidates, they prefer:
People that are white or Mediterranean in appearance.
Men in good physical conditioning, with heights between 178-195 cm. (That translates to roughly 5’10”- 6’5″. They want average-tall men.)
They’d like to see men with military experience.
Locals and people living in the area are preferred.
Men should be prepared to cut or grow their facial hair as needed.
They can’t have any visible tattoos- casting will be checking their arms or legs, etc, during the process.
They all must be available for filming in Zumaia and/or Bermeo for October 21st through 30th.
Due to the high demand, Modexpor can only invite to the final casting the first 200 men who meet the requirements in the initial screening.
The complete announcement from ModExpor:
The casting call in Zumaia continues the trend in Spain asking for men with military experience, so it seems we’ll see more Thrones soldiers in this region when cameras roll. However, calls for the Unsullied and Dany’s Dothraki men tends to be more broad in terms of ethnicity/race. So the question is, whose soldiers are these?
