Hundreds audition for Game of Thrones Season 5 in Šibenik

By Lightbringer on

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.

All signs point to Game of Thrones Season 5 filming being underway

By Lightbringer on

“The end of July” has been the only answer given as to when Game of Thrones Season 5 would begin filming this year. The end of July has arrived, and as of this week, all signs are pointing to filming already being underway in Northern Ireland.

Downtown Radio shared a picture of a familiar pink ‘GOT’ sign spotted at Scrabo Tower near Newtownards in County Down, which garnered a few comments claiming that signs were also up in Toome and Carryduff. A Twitter user also reported spotting signs in the shadow of the tower as early as the 19th.

Scrabo Tower stands 125 feet (38 meters) high and is topped by a number of turrets. In April of this year the tower was deemed unsafe for visitors due to heavy water damage to its electrical supply and lighting, and has remained closed to the public since. This could mean that the tower was or will be used for exterior shots only.
