The cast and crew of Game of Thrones returned to Belfast this week to begin filming season 5.
Casting company Extras NI have posted a few casting calls this week – one looking for a dagger thrower and one looking for a bearded blacksmith – that appear to be for Games of Thrones, too. Check them out below:
