As the sun now stands, "Game of Thrones" Season 6 just gave us a perfect "Battle of the Bastards" and we have a few days until the big Episode 10 finale, "The Winds of Winter." However, the HBO team finished shooting Season 6 toward the end of 2015, and it's almost time to start filming Season 7. To that end, Watchers on the Wall shared details from their sources on casting for the 2017 season.
Here are details from the site:
"According to our sources, the show is currently casting two young Northern characters. Their names are unknown, with Game of Thrones being just as careful on their notices as they were last year.
The first is a 16-year-old Northern girl. They're looking for an actress with a northern accent to take part in what's being called 'a high-stakes scene with leading cast members.' Her physical description isn't specified, except for her needing to be white.
The second role is for a 10-year-old Northern boy. He appears to be a part of the same 'high-stakes' scene as the teenage girl.
These particular roles will be filming in September and October. We've also heard there are other child roles being cast at the moment, but we haven't received any more details on them."
HBO usually starts filming in July, so the wheels are already in motion in terms of scripts and plans, and these characters sound like they may be in mid-season episodes. Then again, we may have to rethink the timelines if HBO goes with a seven-episode Season 7 instead of the usual 10 episodes. That might change the schedule. HBO has yet to confirm anything, but they may be waiting for the Season 6 finale to air to make an official statement about production starting on Season 7, including the exact number of episodes.
When it comes to these young Northern characters, there's speculation that they could be part of another flashback, but now that the Starks have reclaimed Winterfell, they could just be more kids in the North. Either way, we probably won't see any of this until around this time next year. TEARS.
In the meantime, here's the Season 6 finale promo:
