Game of Thrones prequel appears to have started casting various leading roles and they're looking for people

Know anyone that fits the bill?

Samwell Tarly might have his sights set on being the resident Maester at Castle Black, but if that position becomes untenable - thank you very much Mr. Night King - Sam could always take the black and join Watchers on the Wall.

Granted, he has already taken his Night's Watch vows but the world's most dedicated Game of Thrones website usually know everything that's going on in the realm.

On this note, they believe that the new GoT prequel show is already casting a few key roles ahead of its scheduled filming in February.

The pilot episode for Jane Goldman‘s spin-off, reportedly set during The Long Night, will be getting underway very soon and they've reported that the producers are looking for the following character descriptions to fill:

  • A black woman, age 24-32, codenamed “S”
  • A mixed race man, age 17-22, codenamed “A”
  • A white woman, age 17-25, codenamed “I”
  • A black woman, age 16-23, codenamed“F”.

At present, HBO haven't confirmed anything official but the timelines of the production and the casting call do sync and the alleged casting agent on this show, Lucinda Syson, has previously worked on two of Jane Goldman’s most prominent projects as a screenwriter, Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class.

With regards to the plot of the show, we're told that "The series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend … it’s not the story we think we know."

All rumoured details are included in the tweet below.
