SOME extras engaged for the Game of Thrones sequences shot in Almeria have already been called for costume fittings.
This was several days earlier than anticipated, as they had been told to be ready for September 24 after auditioning last July.
More than 10,000 people turned up at Almeria City’s Moises Ruiz sports complex, hoping to be one of the 1,400 men and women needed for the sixth series of the HBO hit. As it was, the production company took on 1,800 men and 800 women – 300 more than originally announced.
Location shooting is due to start on October 10 and is due to last two weeks.
