Season six early casting call-thoughts

Postby moose » Tue May 26, 2015 8:39 pm

Pirate: “Man in his 40s to late 50s. He’s ‘an infamous pirate who has terrorized seas all around the world. Cunning, ruthless, with a touch of madness.’ He’s a dangerous-looking man. A very good part this season.”

Father: “Aged 50s to 60s, he’s one of the greatest soldiers in Westeros—a humorless martinet, severe and intimidating. He demands martial discipline in the field and in his home. It’s described as ‘a very good part’ for next year and that he’s ‘centrally involved’ in a protagonist’s storyline.”

His Family: “Mother in her 50s. She’s 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. She’s 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. He’s salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.”

Various: “Leading Actress in her early 40s, she’s an elegant actress with a traveling theatre company. Fun, charismatic, rum-drinking actress in the troupe. Priestess, mid-20s to early 30s. Any ethnicity—she’s beautiful, intense, and magnetic. Fierce Warrior, a tall man in 30s or 40s with a powerful physique. They’re 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. He’s described as ‘a clever boy’ who seems too large for his age. He’s big and tall but not fat. ‘Characterful squat features’ are a plus for this part. It’s 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 isn’t 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 it’s safe to assume it’s the same scene. This role is similarly open-ended, the description only stating that the character is being ‘introduced.’”

Didn't see a thread already for the latest news... and I didn't want to clog up the subforum with multiple topics on casting, but I saw this on my news feed and thought it curious.

Not that I had any doubt Jon would be back... that silly little ploy saying "I'm dead" wasn't fooling me for a minute.

Kudos to Watchers on the Wall as usual.
Edd, fetch me a block.

Watchers On The Wall have become a full-blown spoiler fan site... and it's pretty impressive to watch it happen. Though, I'm learning things I kind of wished I'd first read in the books... but hey, we live in the real world where wishing doesn't make things happen.
Sometimes you write a story that goes where, as a member of the audience, you wouldn't want it to go. Because anything else would be dishonest.

Yeah, I totally would rather read it in new books, but unfortunately there is just TV series left for us..
