‘Game of Thrones’ Extras Won’t Stop Trying to Kiss the Actors in Seville, Spain
Game of Thrones is currently filming in Seville, Spain; Spain will be the filming location for the Game of Thrones’ House Martell. While Spain may be different than previous filming locations, Belfast and Croatia, the background extras are one thing HBO may have underestimated while scouting filming locations.
According to reports, over 80,000 people applied for 600 extra roles in the new season. In addition, sources report that a ton of extras won’t stop trying to kiss the cast of ‘Game of Thrones’.
“[Fans have] become more intense in Belfast for the first time too, but it’s nothing like Spain,” says Coster-Waldau, who emphasized that while he appreciates the attention, he’s unaccustomed to getting quite so much of it. “They’re really sweet, but some are like, ‘I’ve been looking for you for two days!‘” […]
“They are really excited,” local production company director Piluca Querol said of the fans. “There are a lot of girls trying to kiss the actors.” [EW]
Some fans just want a little more than a handshake and a photograph from their favorite actors.
