'Game of Thrones': 10,000 Extras Apply for Season 5
It took just 24 hours for a Spanish production company to be inundated with hopefuls.
More than 10,000 people answered a casting call for the HBO show's Spanish shoot — and they did it in just 24 hours. Spanish production company Fresco Film Services, which is providing production services, posted on its Facebook page that it would attempt to respond to all of the hopefuls by email.
A leaked casting breakdown supports that idea, with the casting call indicating members of Prince Oberyn's (Pedro Pascal) Dornish family will be featured in the new season.
Game of Thrones is shooting in Spain later this year.
