A Game of Thrones by George R.R. MartinVia Martin himself, it looks like there’s a call out for extras to appear in the HBO adaptation of A Game of Thrones.

From Extras NI:

HBO have begun production in Belfast of their latest TV series ‘A Game of Thrones’ based on George R.R. Martin’s award winning novel of the same name. Described as “an epic struggle for power set in a vast and violent fantasy kingdom” – our extras are surely in for a treat. The starring cast includes Sean Bean, Mark Addy, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey amongst many more.

Filming is due to take place in Northern Ireland in the last week of October and first two weeks of November and of course all our medieval and character faces that have been used on Universal’s feature film “Your Highness” will be at the top of the list for this project, however, the thing we urgently require for paid work are CONFIDENT & EXPERIENCED MALE HORSERIDERS, aged 16-60. If this describes you or someone you know, please send in a clear photo along with full name, height and contact telephone numbers to [email protected] URGENTLY.

So, it looks like I, alongside thousands of other (male) Martin fans, have about 24 hours to learn to ride a horse, get a bank loan and book a ticket to Northern Ireland. Of course, if you already qualify for those requirements… it just might be your lucky day!
