Since we’ve already devoured all of the exclusive pictures from the Game of Thrones season 7 sets in Zumaia, Spain, we know that filming is going to begin pretty soon. With this quick an approach, the need for extras has also been quite apparent. Recently, the extras casting agency ModExpor Internationalreleased their requirements for the casting taking place in Zumaia. The casting call confirms that Game of Thrones will be filming in the area from October 21st through the 30th, and the notices also give some hints about the filming.
The casting, which requires only men between the ages of in the 20-50 years, took place on Monday October 10th, at 10:00am, at the Culture House in Zumaia. The preference for candidates was as following:
People that are white or Mediterranean in appearance.
Men in good physical conditioning, with heights between 178-195 cm. (That translates to roughly 5’10”- 6’5″. They want average-tall men.)
They’d like to see men with military experience.
Locals and people living in the area are preferred.
Men should be prepared to cut or grow their facial hair as needed.
They can’t have any visible tattoos- casting will be checking their arms or legs, etc, during the process.
The final casting will take only the first 200 men who meet the requirements in the initial screening, based on the high demand. Here’s what Modexpor posted:
Almost every casting call in Spain has been for soldiers and men with military experience, which means that we can expect some serious battle sequences in Game of Thrones season 7.
