Exciting Pictures from Daznak's Pit

Some exciting new pictures, and a short video, have surfaced from Daznak's Pit.  Now as you may have guessed these two fall into the heavy spoiler section below the cut.

I unfortunately can't say to much about them above the break.  However it should be noted, these pictures don't show us anything especially ground breaking.  Everything these pictures show was basically covered in an older post I wrote - which also had it's contents fall under a heavy spoiler break.

So if you have read through A Dance with Dragons continue reading.  Otherwise I'd strongly advice you not to.

Emilia Clarke's Birthday?

Emilia Clarke's Birthday?

With filming wrapping up in Osuna, Spain the cast and crew got Emilia Clarke a birthday cake..or more precisely a name day cake.  This would be the actresses 28th, but the catch is the controversy whether or not this was actually her birthday.

Several other sites have claimed that it was in fact Emila's birthday, while others say that it's not .  Google has Emilia Clarke' birthday as May 1 (now I know, you can't always trust the internet) - but back when Emilia was turning 26, The Huffington Post wrote an article for the actresses birthday, in which they specified her birthday as March 1.

Daznak's Pit Pictures

New pictures have surfaced showing the filming that is currently underway in Osuna, Spain for the fifth season of Game of Thrones.  Pictured above is the infamous bull ring which will be used to represent Daznak's Pit in Meereen.

With these new pictures I'm a bit hesitant to say anything else, just for spoiler reasons.  So for the real meat of this post you'll have to go below the break.  But be warned this post will be very spoiler heavy if you have not read through A Dance with Dragons...and even if you have read the books this could still be spoilery.  The below pictures show something that I don't think any book reader would've expected to see this soon in the show - as it's something we haven't even seen in the books yet.

Casting in Osuna

Casting for Game of Thrones extras started yesterday in Osuna, and will continue throughout today. Game of Thrones is looking to narrow the casting  down to a short list of 2,500 people (1,250 men and 1,250 women), and from there narrow it down further to 500 people who will actually make it onto set. These extras will be filming in both Seville and or Osuna between October 10 and 29.  We know that Spain will be used for scenes in Dorne and Meereen.

The casting call was looking for men and women between the ages of 18 and 60, of all races. "Men with good (not bodybuilders) physical conditions," with short and medium length hair.  It was also mentioned that the men should be prepared to grow or cut their facial hair.  As for the women, they were looking for thin women with long, uniform, hair.  No applicants could have green, red, violet, blue, pink, or any colored hair - apparently they were only looking for applicants with brunette hari.  Also no applicants with large visible tattoos were allowed.
