Game of Thrones Season 7 has ended, and we’re not getting ready for the pre-production and casting of Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Some even say that the scripts for the next season is done.
But, more importantly, this is the time period where because of all the casting information, we get to know about what’s going to happen in the next Season of Game of Thrones.
Often, new information comes our way during casting news, and right now, HBO is looking for 7 new characters to appear in Game of Thrones Season 8. Here’s what the famous Game of Thrones blog, Winter Is Coming, had to say about them:
“ *.Mercenary, aged 35-50. This guy is “an authoritative, fit, cool and charismatic military type.” He needs to to be able to ride a horse and will appear in two episodes of season 8. Since there are only six episodes to go around this year, every one counts. ”
According to Watchers on the Wall, this might just be a member of the Golden Company, which Euron has gone to get from the Essos. Cersei had promised to pay them well, if they decide to help her. This guy could easily be a member of the Golden Company.
This is what Winter is Coming had to say about the next 6 characters:
“ *.Northern farmer, aged 25 – 35. This guy is a “straightforward honest man of simple tastes.” He’s just folk, y’all. He’ll shoot the week of November 17th.
*.Sassy and attractive girl, aged 18 – 25. This is another small Northern role; this character will film the week of November 6 and play opposite leading cast members in a “memorable” scene.
This is the only female role on the list, although there’s another casting call for a younger Northern girl out there, too.
*.Northern sentry, aged 18 – 25. This is another role with scenes opposite leading cast members. HBO wants “a characterful young Northern actor with great timing.” He’ll shoot in the first week December.
Sailor, aged 35- 50. “He’s a rough-and ready sea-faring type with a weathered face and strong presence.” This character will film scenes the week of December 11. With Euron still in the mix, odds are he’s a member of the Ironborn.
*.Finally, we have a pair of guards. Guard #1 is is a physically fit 20-something who’s good in a fight. He’ll be shooting the first week of December. Guard #2 is a tall, athletic 30-something. He’s professional, dependable and has one line opposite leading cast members. He’ll shoot on November 1 and 2 in Spain, which is notable because it lets us know that the production will return to Spain. ”
With all this new information, we can assume that event though this is the last season of Game of Thrones, new characters will be a part of the show. In fact, we’ll be meeting a lot of new characters in Season 8 of Game of Thrones, and I can barely hold my excitement. Are you hyped for the Season 8 of Game of Thrones?
