There may be a flashback scene of a few dead characters in "Game of Thrones" Season 6. A new report about the casting call for the TV series attempts to break down the characters from the books that will appear in the next season. [Spoiler Alert!]
The next season may add more family members of Theon Greyjoy and Samwell Tarly. According to a report by WatchersonTheWall, there will be at least 12 new cast members playing various roles in the next season. The report speculates the characters the cast members will be playing by comparing each casting description with that of characters from the books.
The TV series is based on “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series written by George R.R. Martin, which comprises two continents, and the story is mainly focused on the seven kingdoms in the continent of Westeros. According to the casting call report, one of the main characters in the next season will be a pirate in his “40s to late 50s,” and the website speculates it could be Euron Greyjoy.
Euron Greyjoy is the banished younger brother of Balon Greyjoy and uncle to Theon. He will have a strong claim to the Iron Islands after the death of Balon. The casting of the character may mean that “Game of Thrones” Season 6 will feature scenes of the Greyjoys' power struggle and will return to island of Pyke.
Another casting call is for a role of a “father” who is in his 50s or 60s. The character is described to be the “greatest soldier in Westeros” who is “centrally involved” in the storyline. The report speculates this to be Randyll Tarly, the father of Samwell and the only man to have ever defeated Robert Baratheon’s forces.
Some of the other casting calls of a “mother,” “sister” and “brother” are said to be the family members of Samwell Tarly of the Night’s Watch. A priest character is apparently being cast next season, and according to the report this may be the wandering Septon Meribald. There is also a call for a “leading actress” for a character who is a part of a “traveling theater company.” A priestess and a fierce warrior will also be cast next season.
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 will also reportedly feature three little boys. A “large boy,” a 12-year-old boy with “brown hair and blue eyes” and with a “northern accent” and a 7-year old boy with “dark brown hair, a narrow face and green eyes” will apparently be cast. The report notes that the boy with green eyes could be a young Ned Stark for a flashback scene.
