Another is a sassy and attractive girl, aged 18-25, who is a “sexy and confident Northern girl playing a good, memorable one-scene part in one episode”.

While a third role is for a soldier of the same age, who will play a small part opposite leading cast.

The casting descriptions also state they are looking for someone to play a sailor, which suggests the show will be focusing on the Ironborn next season.

The role is for someone aged 35-50 who will play a “rough and ready, sea-faring type with a weathered face and strong presence”.

Elsewhere, there are two guard roles to fill and one of them will be filming in Spain, suggesting the show is once again going outside of Westeros.
