An actor from New York City, Dante Nero, has recently posted an update on his Twitter page about auditioning for Khal Drogo. This provides further confirmation to the previous info we had received about them holding auditions in NYC and LA. At this point, it looks like there will almost certainly be more American actors in the pilot.
In addition to this, it seems that they are still auditioning in London for Bran. This is according to some recent comments on this post. It had appeared that casting in the UK had wrapped up a couple weeks back, with a number of reports coming in of people going for call backs and then not hearing anything for a while. I had assumed that meant that casting in the UK was finished and they would fill out the remaining open spots in LA and NYC. But apparently, that is not the case. For now, it looks like they want to see more kids for the role of Bran.
Winter Is Coming: They are being very thorough with this casting search. That is a good thing.
I’m not in love with the guy auditioning for Khal Drogo. He is a bit thicker than I imagined Khal Drogo to be. He also has a more modern look to me. But obviously just going on an audition doesn’t mean he’ll get the role. Hopefully they will find someone with the perfect look.
It looks like the role of Bran is going to be a tough one to fill, not surprisingly. They have been holding auditions for this one for about a month now. I hope they can find that special kid.
UPDATE: According to Dante Nero’s Twitter account, he has received a call back for the role of Drogo.
