HBO’s Game of Thrones Season 7 Background Actors

Game of Thrones Casting Call

Want to be background actor on “Game of Thrones”? We have the info on how you can be considered for the show! The finale of the sixth season of Game of Thrones, left us with a lot to look forward to. GOT fans around the world are waiting with anticipation on what is to come for the Golden Globe Award winning show. In the meantime, pre-production reports have stated that GOT will begin filming the new season next month in Northern Ireland.

About “Game of Thrones”

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’ [HBO]

At the end of the last season a lot went down! Jon Snow and Sansa Stark took back Winterfell after a mind blowing battle with a little help from Little Finger and the tree folk. Then Snow was deemed the new King of the North (and we found out he is both a Stark and Targaryen). Ramsey Bolton got thrown to the dogs… literally. Cersei used her wild fire power to take out many of her enemies including Queen Margaery. King Tommen walked out the window and plunged to his death after witnessing what his mother had done to his wife and the High Sparrow, effectively make Cersei queen yet again. Daenerys’s joined forces with the powerful women of the Greyjoys, the Tyrells, and Dorne and set sail for Westeros. And Bran has finally become the new three eyed raven. Season 7 is sure to be a good one and we can’t wait to see what is next in the Game of Thrones.
