Season 6 ‘Game of Thrones’ Casting Call Leaks Online and It’s Amazing
The first character descriptions for the Season 6 ‘Game of Thrones’ casting call have leaked online. The casting calls are so vague and so general that they can be posted here without a spoiler warning. According to Watchers on the Wall Website, here are the latest casting calls for Season 6 ‘Game of Thrones’.
Pirate: Man in his 40s to late 50s. Hes an infamous pirate who has terrorized seas all around the world. Cunning, ruthless, with a touch of madness. Hes a dangerous-looking man. A very good part this season.
Father: Aged 50s to 60s, hes one of the greatest soldiers in Westerosa humorless martinet, severe and intimidating. He demands martial discipline in the field and in his home. Its described as a very good part for next year and that hes centrally involved in a protagonists storyline.
His Family: Mother in her 50s. Shes a sweet, plump, and adoring mother, and has a soft spot for one of her children who benefits from her decency. Sister in her early 20s. Shes a kind, friendly and unpretentious woman. Brother in his early to mid-20s . Athletic, a good hunter, an excellent swordsman, manly, not particularly bright but the favourite child of the father.
Priest: In his 40s or 50s. A gruff ex-soldier who found religion. Now a no-nonsense rural priest who ministers to the poor of the countryside. Hes salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.
Various: Leading Actress in her early 40s, shes an elegant actress with a traveling theatre company. Fun, charismatic, rum-drinking actress in the troupe. Priestess, mid-20s to early 30s. Any ethnicityshes beautiful, intense, and magnetic. Fierce Warrior, a tall man in 30s or 40s with a powerful physique. Theyre looking for someone with mixed ethnicity for the role.
A Trio of Boys: (1) large boy, with an actor who is 10-12 but playing 7 or 8. Hes described as a clever boy who seems too large for his age. Hes big and tall but not fat. Characterful squat features are a plus for this part. Its specified that this is a one-time appearance. (2) 12 year old boy, with brown hair and blue eyes. He needs to use a Northern accent. He has scenes where he has to spar with a wooden sword. The length of the role isnt specified. (3) 7 year old boy with dark brown hair, a narrow face and green eyes. He also has a Northern accent. He also spars with the wooden sword, so its safe to assume its the same scene. This role is similarly open-ended, the description only stating that the character is being introduced.
If you read the books you probably already know who these characters are. If not, let us break it down for you.
The Priest character is big news. Rory McCann’s Hound character is probably going to make a comeback in Season 6. He is a big deal because there is a strong book theory that a scene reveals that the Hound has survived his wounds and is living out his days anonymously as a gravedigger at a monastery.
The various characters sound like people we might meet in Essos. In a future book Arya is part of a traveling theatrical group so the leading actress character sounds like it may tie into her plot. The Priestess and the Fierce Warrior are a little more vague, but based on the casting description I would say they are talking about other groups in Essos. But, the warrior could be a new fighter for Daenerys.
Expect more flashbacks. The “trio of boys” could be Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon, and Ned’s brother Brandon. They could also be other characters featured in Season 1 of the Game of Thrones. However, it is too vague to tell.
