Alright, with the SDCC panel just two hours away (as I'm writing these lines), it's time to open a new thread.

 

As I lay these words down, the hope is strong for a casting reel to be unveiled tonight, first for the lucky eyes attending the event and then for us, hordes of hungry fans who have already cover in pixel-ink hundreds of pages debating what to expect for season 5.

 

So far, we do not have any official casting confirmation.

 

Yet, we know that Keisha Castle-Hughes should be playing a Sand Snake.

 

That, and I write these words with a sad face, Aimee Richardson's Myrcella will no longer be among us and that her role shall be given to Neil Tiger Free.

 

We also have this leaked casting call for season 5 (curtesy of WiC.net) listing many of the new characters that shall make their debut (and sometimes also their end) this season : http://winteriscomin...-5-new-details/

 

Let's discuss and await for potential revelations at SDCC ! =D

Summary of Information for Season 5 (spoiler tags used for length):

 

A Season 5 casting leak shows that the following characters will appear next year:

Spoiler

 

A second casting leak added 3 characters to that list:

Spoiler

 

The Whale Rider actress Keisha Castle-Hughes is rumored to have been cast as “one of the Sand Snakes,” with a lot of publications saying she’ll be Nymeria (though the casting call asked for someone mixed-race for that role). It remains unconfirmed.

 

A Tyene audition tape was removed, but revealed Bronn to be in Dorne. The transcript is as follows:

Spoiler

 

An Obara audition tape was also leaked, revealing that Jaime will be in Dorne in Season 5. I cannot find the audition tape (Tania Raymonde’s audition tape has been removed from vimeo), but here is the transcript:

 

Spoiler

 

There has been a leaked Tryst audition tape, now removed. The transcript is loosely as follows:

Spoiler

 

It is rumored that Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar) is returning to the "main cast" in Season 5. Many are speculating that he will be taking on the role of the Kindly Man, rather than his Citadel arc (which would explain why his original face would be back).

 

It is also rumored that Myrcella has been recast, with Nell Tiger Free taking over for Aimee Richardson. I think Free deleted a tweet that said something to the effect of “so excited,” but even without that link (deleted tweets are a poor source), Aimee Richardson noted that the recast was a possibility earlier this year, and vaguely tweeted about the recast article.

 

There is a completely unsourced rumor that Angela Sarafyan is going to join the cast as “someone around Stannis,” but it was said in a random comment on a WiC article, so take it with a major salt lick.

 

Non-Casting News:

They will be filming in Spain, specifically in the Province of Sevilla. This is likely for Sunspear and the Water Gardens, as the Alcázar of Seville is confirmed as a filming location. Over 9,000 10,000 Spaniards applied to be extras.

 

GoT will also add Šibenik, Croatia to their list of filming locations, which many are speculating to be Braavos. This is in addition to their continued filming in Split and Dubrovnik within the country. The article notes that they’re also scouting Imotski, Croatia, but filming there isn’t confirmed.

 

Michelle Fairley said in an interview that Lady Stoneheart is not likely to ever happen in that “yeah, the character’s dead. She’s dead.” Take that to mean what you will. She’s also signed on as a series regular for the show “Resurrection.”

 

Filming is underway based on tweets from extras/locals. The Scrabo Tower is one location (tweet), and an extra is going to film near “a castle” (tweet). It was noted by a commenter on WiC that the signs were really for Quintin Castle, which is nearby.

Someone at WIC said they weren't filming at Scrabo Tower but at a nearby castle (Quintin Castle) at the beach. He seemed legit.

Yeah, I'm not sure those two facts are mutually exclusive, so I was going to hold off updating it until some news came in, but I could make that note for sure.

I wonder if any board members are at the panel who will live post if we get casting info. Or who is a good twitter follow that might do the same? someone from wcnet?

by the way, Maisie Williams is in talks to play Ellie in "the last of us" movie! I know that's not relevant, but it's amazing! I'm just trying to inform the world of this incredible development.

^ Was about to post the same, or the WiC twitter account.

 

If the forums crash, well... it will only delay the tsunami of posts but if there is any casting news, the tsunami will flow, no doubt about it ! ^^

Literally the only thing I care about is the casting news. I don't even care to watch the panel (unless it has casting news!)

They're playing show bloopers apparently.
