Extras, Extras

I get emails all the time from fans who want to be on GAME OF THRONES.

Here's your chance. The call has gone out for extras for season three.


Of course, it helps if you actually live in Northern Ireland.

Or the Republic of Ireland.

Or Scotland or England or the Isle of Man... y'know, someplace where you can actually get to the shoot. If you're in South Africa, Brazil, or Japan, your chances of getting a call are not good, alas.

On the other hand, if you're a bearded long-haired amputee from Derry, you should be gold.

You should probably edit this post - NI Extras are refusing to accept anybody who does not live in Northern Ireland or in the Republic of Ireland. As such, people like myself in England, willing and able to travel, are being told they cannot apply.

I can confirm this as someone living in Northern England and who applied and was rejected - it may even be Northern Ireland only and not the Republic

The luck of the Irish strikes once again!

I am hoping this will be a fun summer excursion! I'm tall, slim, sort of good-looking (I'm told) and with rather long hair. As a dude, that seems sort of medievaly enough to get me on this!

My dad is six foot 5, 250 lbs or therabouts, bearded, and a former Rugby Player. and we are both Game of Thrones obsessed. And we live in Ireland.

I reckon one or both of us will be able to make it onto the show!!

Perfect news to begin my day, Hallelujah! I honestly have a very good shot at landing a spot, given my medieval "Santa" like appearance. According to my five-year old grand-niece, anyway.

How sad, Master Martin, I'm from Brazil, so that does not have the talent to act. In the series has a Brazilian son of Robert Lysa Arryn (or Tully). Congratulations for the magnificent history, my daily addiction.

S3 New Characters
Mr Martin, any chance Euron Greyjoy will be introduced in season 3 or is it far too early for him? The actor who comes to mind for that role is British actor Richard Armitage. He's currently wrapping up his role as Thorin in Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT, but should be free for a new one sometime in June.

Armitage has often expressed his preference for complicated characters. In fact, he's played a string of them over the years, from rogue MI5 agent, Lucas North (Spooks)to Guy of Gisborne(BBC,3 series). The actor most definitely fulfills the physical description of Euron as well.

This is probably the first and last time I am absolutely devastated at leaving Belfast for Australia.

National Insurance Number
Hmmm I've came across this before, but in the Republic we don't actually have National Insurance numbers, we have PPSNs. My dreams are dashed:O

Re: National Insurance Number
NI Extras accept PPSNs - they've said so on their facebook page as another Irish extra asked.

My cousin's French wife lives outside Glasgow, (Scotland) and was an extra in the Brad Pitt World War Zombie film which shot in Glasgow last year for a couple of weeks. She was employed for 11 days. For one whole day she and 20 other extras ran up a very steep hill and had to stop at their 'mark'. It was fun but hard work, she said. She was also in an office shot with Brad running away through some offices (from zombies again,naturally), up stair cases etc. Her car was also used (just parked) altho' the crew had to put US car plates on it for which she got paid also. I think she was paid about £100 per day plus more for the car. I could think of worse ways to spend the day than literally running around with Brad Pitt! She said Brad was very kind & professional on set although she never spoke to him personally. Can't wait to see the film and try and spot our Clarisse!No, she was not eaten by a zombie!

Why not Hungary?
Mr. Martin, I'm doing extra work on Die Hard 5 right now here in lovely Budapest, Hungary, but there is no show I'd rather work on anywhere than Game of Thrones.

Hungary has so many great places for filming. I hope the show producers might decide to do some work here, because I would be first in line to try for any part I could get!

Re: Why not Hungary?
Isn't THE BORGIAS filming in Hungary?

Might get crowded with two medieval shows competing for crews, etc.

We are very happy in Belfast. And have gotten fantastic footage from Croatia, Iceland, Scotland, Malta, and Morocco as well.

"On the other hand, if you're a bearded long-haired amputee from Derry, you should be gold."

Is GRRM talking about Donal Noye?

Better see if I can get them to accept an English person - I may be a dumpy-looking 36 year old, but I have natural hair and am a semi-pro musician with medieval and folk instruments, like recorder and harp.
Anything to fill in time before the next book...
(Or I could organise a Wild Cards LARP again.)
