Once again, WatchersOnTheWall sources have come through and provided several new spoilers for us to mull over.
Game of Thrones is currently seeking to fill a few minor roles this month for filming, and the casting breakdowns contain some intriguing information.
There are moderate spoilers in this post, so proceed with caution!
The show is looking to cast a Sellsword who is drinking in a busy Volantis brothel. He gives one worker a hard time about her price before taking it someplace more private. This actor is needed for filming in Croatia on September 12th, the period when Meereen-centered filming is expected in the Split area, with Unsullied extras lined up.
While the sellsword role is not significant, the confirmation that Volantis has not been cut entirely is notable, especially as a brothel near Volantis is where two major characters first meet in A Dance with Dragons.
There are two other connected roles looking to be filled- two masters who have unfortunate encounters with dragons, shooting around September 13th in Croatia.
The first master sought is a man in his 40’s-50’s, and it’s noted he should have no facial hair, and should be either bald or have very short hair. He’s going to be eaten by a massive dragon in a major scene.
The second wealthy master is described as fatter, and privileged. He undergoes what our source refers to as “a major trauma involving dragons.”
That sounds like something of an understatement.
