On Monday, over 500 Šibenik locals lined up to audition to be an extra in Game of Thrones Season 5. According to the latest report from Šibenik.In, the steps of City Hall were filled for over 21 hours with locals both young and old, hoping to get a chance to appear in the popular series.
The application forms were filled with the standard information (contact, height, weight, etc), but also included some questions more suited to Game of Thrones, including if the applicants would be willing to appear naked, and would agree to a haircut and a shave.
Among the locals were a few familiar faces to Šibenik, including Mayor Željko Burić. When asked by Šibenik.In which role he thought would be perfect for him, he joked, “What do you think I signed up for? The role of the King!” He also commented that the filming of Game of Thrones in Šibenik is extremely important, and he hopes that the city will take advantage of the situation.
