As reported earlier, the extras casting in Girona is taking place today and tomorrow at the Devesa park conference centre. Dozens of people camped there overnight to be the first in line, and it appears to have been a good call, as local news sites report the queue of more than 5,000 people stretching for several kilometers (and they can only process 1,200 men and 1,200 women in total).

Spanish and Catalan sites are happily collecting and sharing photos of the crowd, find more after the jump. A video report (in Spanish) can be found here.

If you live further to the north, in Northern Ireland, you’re not out of luck as an extra either. Extras NI has just posted their yearly registration call, here it goes:

  1. Has anybody from the Wotw community ever gotten to be an extra? Maybe you could shareyour experience and how was it like being an extra on such a huge show.

    Edit: Hodor

  2. Let’s be honest here, if we lived in Spain we would try and be extras on the show too.

    I live in Atlanta, and with Georgia’s tax incentives I would love if they shot SOMETHING in this beautiful state. Isn’t there a Chick-fil-a scene in TWOW?

  3. It must be so fun to be an extra on GOT. I dream that they’d film in France so I could run to the casting calls but I very much doubt it… maybe for Storm’s End if it ever appear..
    I could see Casterly rock in Carcassonne’s fortress or Beynac’s castle…
    Why not Pyke on mount St michel ?
    one can only dream 🙂

    You have the wrong type of “walkers” 😉

  5. Deesensfan:
    They should film in Ottawa, or anywhere in Canada… we get lots of snow and winter

    Wouldn’t work. The walkers would all just get drunk on LaBatt’s, and that’s the end of the story.

  6. In other news… Emilia is scheduled to appear on the Tonight Show tonight. Maybe she’ll share some more Jon theories.

    How did I miss the news that she had fractured her hip? I guess it’s better now since she was crutch free yesterday.

  7. I wanna’ be an extra, too bad I don’t live in Ireland or Spain. 🙁 They should film in California, we have any kind of terrain they could want from desert to high mountains and everything in between. They wouldn’t have to jump around to a bunch of different countries.

    When is she supposed to be on the Tonight Show? My schedule says it is a repeat tonight and she’s not on the guest list. She is on the schedule for tonight on Jimmy Kimmel but I don’t know if it’s a repeat.

    When did she break her hip?

  9. GOT Fan,
    Checked the schedule on TVbytheNumbers and Emilia on Jimmy Kimmer tonight at 11.30 on ABC is in a new episode. Tonight Show on NBC is all repeat this week.

    Thanks for the verification, gonna’ watch to see if she thinks “Jon Snow knows nothing” LOL

    Emilia posted on her Instagram that she finished taping Kimmel, so its definitely a new episode.

  12. flintwielder: How can you possibly get drunk on horsepiss ?

    Trust me bro, that’s not horse piss. Labatt’s is basically Chivas Regal compared to fucking Molson.

  13. Clob,

    She just slipped and I’m not sure,but she was breakdancing with Arnold. I would love to see that. She is there to promote her new Terminator movie,not Game of Thrones. She already shared her thoughts on that with mtv.

  14. “Spanish AND Catalan sites”? Please, not here. I have enough with the endless arguments in Spanish sites. I come here partly to escape that kind of sentences. Please, don’t be part of something you really don’t know. Thank you.

  15. I’m also betting it would be fun to be an extra on GoT, too bad my haircut would probably get deemed too “modern”, would be willing to make changes though.. It’s not colored blue or something. Dat waiting line though.. in that heat.. Seven hells couldn’t describe it any better..

    “Spanish and Catalan sites” is not a polemic statement at all, if you don’t want to make it one. It’s only your post that starts any kind of debate that has nothing to do with the purpose of this site.

    Spanish sites (in terms of language, culture or self-identification) report about it. Catalan sites (in terms of language, culture or self-identification) report about it. No need to discuss here about correlation or political relations between the two cultures any further.

    What an ignorant comment. No wonder the catalans want to get the fuck out if Spain asap. You can’t even respect their language, which should be part of the spanish heritage too

    Rergarding being an extra, I live here but have a job too so no can do, too much of a hassle 😉

    As a catalan, I thank you. As you can see, they respect our language and culture more outside of Spain than in Spain, where they see it as a nuissance to be ignored, berated or even eliminated (Franco’s dictatorship was not long ago, and it’s heritage is devastating for us).

    That’s the root of the problem.

    Anyway, back to GoT 😉

  19. Pau,

    The post does read as if they were distinguishing between two different countries. Two different languages? For sure, no problem. Two different countries? Not yet, dude.

    No, the post doesn’t read like that. It doesn’t. We have catalan cities, and catalan newspapers. We even have catalan newspapers whos language is spanish. What an amazing concept!!

    We don’t need to have a country to have “catalan” things. Mindblowing, eh?

  21. The casting in Girona required to be available for 20 days in September, so despite having the opportunity to go because I live near, many people (including me) couldn’t go; so yes, it is nice when they shoot near home but not if you work/study. And yes, there were extraordinarily long queues….so if you are young (basically the majority of people attending there) it is not as easy to be cast.
    But I am glad many people who are unemployed could go, anyway. And also that Game of Thrones films in a wide variety of European spots.
