Shooting dates and extras casting in Girona, Spain for Game of Thrones confirmed

GironaToday’s Game of Thrones season 6 news: a notice posted on Twitter by Modexpor Casting provides a great deal of information about the hunt for extras in Girona. Modexpor, who handles GoT‘s extras throughout Spain, will be looking for people in the city on June 29th and 30th, from 9AM to 8PM both days.

As we discovered last year, thousands will sign up to be extras on Game of Thrones, but the company can only screen 1200 men and 1200 women from the applicants in Girona. The precise final number of extras sought in the city is not known.

Rehearsal and filming in Girona will take place with extras from September 3rd through the 18th of this year, according to the casting notice.

What location info can be gleaned from the Girona casting call? Well, it’s different than the Spanish casting calls last year, when applicants all had to be dark-haired. That suggests Girona will not be Dorne or Meereen but may stand in for other locations. With the city’s old quarter streets, it could easily be a part of existing GoT places like King’s Landing or Braavos, or stand in for a new location such as Oldtown.

We have heard from multiple sources of ours that Game of Thrones isn’t using Dubrovnik and Croatia in general quite as much this year, so it would make sense to have some of that location shooting shifting to Spain, as the show needs fresh places to film.

Some highlights from the extras casting call:

It’s on June 29th and June 30th, from 9:00AM to 8:00PM.

at the Fira de Girona

Passeig de la Devesa,

34, 17001 Girona

Specifically, they’re searching for people who are between 18-65, all races, and with these characteristics preferably:

Thin
Men with good (not bodybuilders) physical condition
Men with short hair/women with long hair. People with very modern hairstyles won’t be considered.
Local people of Girona and surroundings.

People should have hair color that’s uniform, without streaks, no hair colors that is: green, red, purple, blue, pink, etc. (Editor’s note: Non-natural colors and looks, essentially.)
Men should be prepared to be grow out or cut their facial hair.
No tattoos.
People attending the casting should wear shorts and short-sleeved shirts so casting can see their arms and legs.
People must be available to work in Girona from September 3rd through the 18th. Working days will be very long hours because they go through makeup, costumes and hairdresser (times vary depending on the scenes rolling).
Due to high demand we can only invite the casting to 1200 men and 1200 women.

Invitations to the casting on June 29th and June 30th will be made exclusively on the morning of June 29th. People seeking more information on extras casting should contact Modexpor.

Additionally, the casting date for Peñíscola will be communicated shortly.

A couple weeks back, it was reported that there would be extras casting on July 1st and 2nd. Perhaps that will be that Peñíscola casting?

As reported yesterday, extras casting in Almería, Spain will take place on July 9th and 10th.

Thanks to Los Siete Reinos for the heads up on the casting notice!

    1. This could be Oldtown or King’s Landing or Braavos but there just isn’t enough info to be able to tell.

    2. Needing to see arms and legs suggests some may be wearing costumes that could expose these areas. Dothraki, perhaps?

    3. Yep, as has been said, we could be looking at Oldtown or King’s Landing or Braavos or somewhere else.

      I like the look of it for Oldtown!

    4. Re: much less being done in Dubrovnik, I was wondering about that, considering the Spain filming is scheduled for most of September. That’s when the Dubrovnik filming has been in past years, IIRC, they haven’t filmed in two non-Northern Ireland countries at once before. Is the show even confirmed to be returning to Croatia at all?

    7. Since half of the extras are women, this will be some sort of event like Daznak, but certainly not a battle (unless it’s a massacre of civilians lol)

      16 days of filming? It’s something freaking huge!

      Why only Dothrakis? If you look at the walk of shame scene, many citizens of King’s Landing have no sleeves. It’s the same on the bridge of Volantis or in Braavos (Arya’s costume has no sleeves and we see her legs too). It could be anywhere, except the North where it’s too cold…

    9. The people in KL were sleeveless. That may hold true in the south in Oldtown, if we get there. Remember they’re seeing 2400 applications, not accepting that many. They may only take a few hundred, so they could just be townspeople walking through the streets. It doesn’t have to be a huge battle scene or anything like that.

    10. why do people think it will be king’s landing? they already have a set location for that. anyways i think king’s landing will get very little screentime next season. i mean lena headey is giving birth right when filming is beginning, no way she can recover soon enough after giving birth to start filming right away. most women need about 6 weeks of rest after giving birth.

      I’m with you on this one. The Ironborn story in the books was kinda meh

      because they haven’t done anything meaningful just yet. Let them pillage the Casterly Rock/ Lannisport as well!

    12. aurane waters: why do people think it will be king’s landing?

      There also is the issue that we don’t know where things are happening in Winter. There are a few places in Essos where Daeny might pass on her way to Westeros, for example: assuming that is what is going to happen.

      At any rate, given that there probably will be wintry conditions in much of Westeros, it seems that bare arms and legs would point to something outside of Westeros. Daeny might be meeting resistance, follower, or who knows what. Remember, the Red Priestess was exhorting people in Volantis to join Daeny.

      True, it could be, and I suspect a mix of different scenes/characters. I secretly hope for Dany and Dothraki

    15. Moka,

      Daeny’s journey to Westeros probably will contribute to the plot and (hopefully) story in some way(s). Of course, as we know neither the story nor the plot, that’s not a given: it’s possible that Daeny’s journey will just be filler that can be cut from the show. However, I am expecting that Arya will fall in with Daeny at some point. Braavos is too far north, and it is tough to imagine that Daeny can just cruise past all of the places further south without something happening. Pentos is one possibility, but there have to be others. (They might use a different city than Pentos or Volantis because, well, why not? It lets them shoot someplace new, and that has to be part of the fun for a production team.)

    16. This might perhaps not be the right place to put this, but it seems like there is another supposed sighting of Kit Harington in Belfast:

      TriSarahtops ‏@waxedpaperdoor 3h hours ago
      My friend has texted to say she saw Kit Harington in Belfast. I though Jon Snow was dead……? #GoT

      The shooting obviously hasn’t started yet, but could they be doing rehearsals or something?

      The Kit sightings in Belfast have been going on pretty much since 48 hours after the season finale. He’s become the new Loch Ness Monster.

    18. Boudica,

      Pre-production’s going on in Belfast at the moment. D and D are there and probably most of the producers and a lot of the crew. So Kit being there likely isn’t a coincidence.

    20. I don’t know if it’s true but there is a supposed leaked list of the episodes titles for season 6 from 4chan :

      1. Winter
      2. Brandon’s Gift
      3. The Lord of Light
      4. We Do Not Sow
      5. Robert Strong
      6. Little Birds
      7. The Citadel
      8. Kingslayer
      9. The Prince That Was Promised
      10. Westeros

    21. Ravyn: He’s become the new Loch Ness Monster.

      Nessie is Scottish!

      Nymeria Warrior Queen: Jon Snow = Westerosi Elvis?

      Maybe that will be the running theme of Season 6.

      Character 1: “Oh my gods! OH. MY. GODS… I think that’s Jon Snow over there!!! SQEEEE!!!!”

      Character 2: “Really? Where? Move, let me seee!!!”

      Character 3: “Wait: who in the 7 hells is Jon Snow, other than some northern bastard?”

      Character 2: “Um… yeah, who is Jon Snow?”

      Character 1: “Uh, well, he’s um… Actually, I have no idea, but those people over there thought that they saw him. Hey! Wait! Isn’t that short person over there Tyrion Lannister?!?!?”

      Rinse, repeat.

    22. Moka,

      Some of these titles seems like wishful thinking to me. Althought We Do Not Sow and The Citadel would be my prediction too.Just like Unbent Unbowed Unbroken which served as an introduction to Dorne.I can imagine Khal of Khals(or just my wish) to be one of the titles.

      Boudica,

      Like today or couple of days ago?If today … Kit is currently shooting his new movie Brimstone. Couple of people saw him after finale in the Belfast.

    23. Moka,

      I’ve read theories dictating that Dany will deliver “fire and blood” to Yunkai and Volantis on her way to Westeros, for their part in opposing her.

      The Tattered Prince + Pentos subplot also wasn’t set up for nothing.

      Dany will unite the Dothraki and sack her way to Westeros, landing on the continent at the end of book/season 6.

        Quote  Reply

    24. Moka,

      My skepticism won’t allow me to believe this just yet, though they would be fantastic titles, I think. My only issue is with “Westeros.” I feel like there is only one thing that comes to mind to which it could be referring:

      Dany’s return, right?

      Wouldn’t that be a little spoilery for the show runners to choose as an episode title? Unless there are alternative ideas towhat “Westeros” could refer?

      Yes indeed! Or Bigfoot!

      Geralt of Rivia: Like today or couple of days ago?If today … Kit is currently shooting his new movie Brimstone. Couple of people saw him after finale in the Belfast.

      That is the one problem I am not sure about the timing. The tweet was recent so I was assuming that it could more be recent then the sighting of two weeks ago. I am not sure exactly when Kit is suppose to start filming for Brimstone, I thought they were only building sets right now or something. But perhaps this is just a belated tweet.

      An article has also been posted about an “insider” commenting. It is properly not reliable but there has been many GoT leaks of late so…

      An inside source said: “Kit has contractual obligations for series six and seven.
      “He has been told to say his character is dead and everyone is sticking to that story but the truth is he will be back.
      “That character is key to the show and is loved by the fans – and in that world resurrection is not out of the question.”

      Moka:

      1. Winter
      2. Brandon’s Gift
      3. The Lord of Light
      4. We Do Not Sow
      5. Robert Strong
      6. Little Birds
      7. The Citadel
      8. Kingslayer
      9. The Prince That Was Promised
      10. Westeros

      Those titles sound pretty good, but it seems somewhat doubtful that they would already know the titles. A lot of people also thought that the finale would be named “Winter”, and in the audition video that was posted the priestess spoke about “The One Who Was Promised”, not “The Prince Who Was Promised”.

    26. Moka,

      I think it pretty improbable that they’ve got titles yet. More probably, those are speculative titles and the usual Grimmsian evolution of things turned them into rumored titles.

        Quote  Reply

    27. Moka,

      They don’t create the episode titles anywhere near this early. They’re still finalizing the scripts for season 6. There’s no way in hell they have titles, which is something that seems to happen in the last couple months before a GoT season airs.

      4chan is full of it. Ignore that list.

        Quote  Reply

    28. This list sounds awesome (especially TPTWP!!) and in keeping with what we might expect on the surface, so it stands a tiny chance of being true, but there is much that doesn’t resonate:

      1. Winter – We’ve already had “Winter is Coming”
      2. Brandon’s Gift – We’ve already had “The Gift”
      3. The Lord of Light – so specific: most titles are broad enough to have multiple meanings so that it can apply to the entire episode
      4. We Do Not Sow
      5. Robert Strong – The only title to refer specifically to a single character is “Lord Snow,” and Jon is so much more important than Robert Strong
      6. Little Birds
      7. The Citadel – so specific; couldn’t apply to entire episode, right?
      8. Kingslayer
      9. The Prince That Was Promised – though awesome, has a title ever been this spoilerific?
      10. Westeros

      And it sounds like Sue has settled the debate for us, anyway.

      Insider source.I’m a bit sceptical about this,but I hope it’s true.One guy asked him to take a picture of him in the Belfast recently.He politely refused,because no one should know he was there.Kit absense on SDCC was a longtime thing,not only because of Brimstone.Busy schedule is one thing,to keep their biggest secret could be another.

      I can agree with theories about LSH and Jon.One of the main reasons behind LSH being left out from the show could be Jon’s potential ressurection.If LSH was ressurected,people will go:oh yeah,he wil be back just like Lady Stoneheart.If you search on youtube,you should find video about his love-hate relationship with Belfast.Everyone knows about his hair clause and this stuff.

      I couldn’t imagine recast,because that would be somehow even worse or bad as much as his permanent death.People like Kit and he grew up with the role of Jon Snow so much.It would be starnge,because I saw couple of people suggesting recast.

      Many of this does seem far fetched I agree, but we can hope I would never quote any article from the daily star though as being remotely accurate by comparison. That paper is a rag.

      Besides Dany, could it also refer to the wall coming down and the WW making their way into Westeros? (However, I still think these titles are just wishful thinking at this point…good wishful thinking tho)

      People actually working on the show, like Bender, have said they’re still in the middle of writing the scripts. Doubtful they have titles already, since production titles are numbers.

    33. dd,

      Good point, I hadn’t considered the WW’s there for whatever reason. However, all this speculation is proving to be moot at this point, as you and many others on this thread have indicated that these titles are just wishful thinking and there is no way they could have settled on official episode titles at this point in production! Oh well, it could be a good jumping off point for when we have a episode titles speculation post later in the offseason like we did last year!

        Quote  Reply

    34. Dovaogēdys,

      Indeed, it is common at this stage for episodes to have ridiculous dummy titles so that people do not quickly guess to what show the scripts belong. If there are any scripts out there titled “Jon Snow Lives!” then they probably are for a different program! (Some wise-ass almost certainly is using something like that.)

    36. Since it’s a fun game, here are some episode titles I’d like to see for Season 6, based on unadapted, or obviously-coming-soon, parts of the books:

      The Lord of Light
      Crow’s Eye
      We Do Not Sow
      The Maesters
      No One
      The Lost Son
      A Conspiracy
