The cast and crew of “Game of Thrones” will be returning to Spain again this year to film scenes for Season 6. A casting announcement reportedly confirms that Navarra has been added as a new location in the country.
According to a report by TheLocal, some of the scenes for the next Season will be filmed at the municipality of Tudela in Navarra, Spain. The report is based on the casting announcement by Modexpor International Casting, a company based in Malaga in Southern Spain that is tasked with providing extras for the popular fantasy show.
The producers are said to be looking for 800 men and about 400 women between 18 and 65. The criteria to be selected for the role of extras this time is that the candidates should be “very brown and Mediterranean” looking and should have black hair. Only “slim” people will be cast in the roles, and applicants should not have any tattoos.
The report notes that extras were cast in Girona previously and that more extras will be cast in Peniscola before filming begins at this location. It is unclear when filming at Tudela is set to begin. Seville and Osuna, the filming locations for last year, have reportedly seen a boost in tourism.
A new cast member, Sam Coleman, will be joining “Game of Thrones” Season 6. According to the actor’s resume on Spotlight, he will be filming his scenes in August. There is no mention about the name of the character he will be playing or in which location he will film his scenes. The actor is said to have just finished filming for the prequel to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” titled “Leatherface.”
According to a report by WatchersOnTheWall, the actor doesn’t fit into any of the descriptions of characters that were announced in the first casting call that included characters like “fierce warrior” and “priest.” The report speculates that he may be playing one of the characters from the second casting announcement, which included parts for outlaws, servants and recruits in “Game of Thrones” Season 6.
