    Casting news:
    Qhogo and Akrat: HBO is said to be looking for mixed ethnicity or other non-white actors for the roles. The young warriors have to be tall and confident, with swagger and linguistic bravado. They note the actors will have to speak a fictional language, so we can assume they will be Dothraki warriors from the khalasar Dany (Emilia Clarke) has encountered in the season finale.

    Lachlan: He’s the leader of a band of renegades who’ve turned on the land they swore to protect (the Riverlands, maybe?). They’re now extorting the poor and vulnerable. Lachlan is set to appear in two episodes during Season 6 next year.

    It’s hard to tell who Lachlan really is, but Winter is Coming posits that he could be a Northerner disobeying House Bolton, who’s now wreaking havoc in the Riverlands. There are rumors that Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-waldau) may be heading there next season.

    Flynn: He’s part of an outlaw band -- which is probably Lachlan’s. The group is using religion to justify the terrorizing and extorting of the poor, defenseless people of the countryside. He’s also set to appear in two episodes.

    Now this bit is interesting. Could the religion this group of outlaws is using be that of the Sparrows that were introduced in Season 5?

    Japeth: He’s another member -- and the lieutenant -- of the outlaw band. He’s described as a "rough-and-ready type" with a strong physical presence. He will also appear in two episodes.

    Bower: A powerless servant, he is numb to the horror he serves. It’s said he’ll be filming around one of the days that the outlaw band members are. It could be safe to assume he may be connected to them. The actor is required to have a Northern or Midland English accent, and will appear in one episode only.

    Legendary Fighter: The character is a man in his thirties or forties. He’s a great swordsman and a "paragon of knighthood" who carries a hugely famous sword on his back. The HBO series is actually looking to cast an extraordinary swordsman for the role -- the best in Europe. He will film fight scenes for a week in the upcoming sixth season. His ethnicity/race isn’t specified for this one, unlike many other roles.

    I can only assume that the "hugely famous sword" this knight carries could be a Valyrian steel sword, which can defeat the White Walkers. If some of you guys are thinking about Ser Arthur Dayne, note that the character was said to have been killed years ago by Eddard Stark (Sean Bean) and his companions, even though the circumstances of his death remain unclear. Dayne carried "Dawn" -- which was not a Valyrian steel sword, but forged from the heart of a fallen star -- on his back. So that one is really intriguing. If it is Ser Arthur Dayne, could it be a flashback scene?

    Lord of Noble Northern House: This lord is said to be a savage warrior, and he rules a great house in the very far North. The role is said to be a very important one. The man is described as a "massive bear of a man with a beard and temper to match, and hatred that run deep, and he can be violent." The show is looking to cast someone with a powerful physique who can tower over other cast members. He needs to have a Northern English Accent, and have to be at least 180 cm (around 6 feet) tall. He will be in two episodes. It’s interesting to note that the casting age ranges anywhere between 25 and 50.

    Winter is Coming thinks the role could be that of Lord Jon Umber, aka the Greatjon. The character has appeared on the show before, but he hasn’t been seen in a while, so they think HBO's looking to recast him. The Umbers do control a house in the "very far North," and they are harboring Rickon Stark (Art Parkinson). But the fact that they’re also looking at actors as young as 25 makes me doubt that it could be the Greatjon…It could be his son, Jon "Smalljon" Umber. However, since the Greatjon is said to be still alive, Smalljon Umber wouldn’t be ruling this house. Anyone has a theory on this one?

    Lord of Northern Stronghold: They are looking for an actor in his late thirties or forties to play another lord described as "ruthless and calculating. The frightening lord rules a vassal household with a castle stronghold." The character will be in three episodes , with 20 days of filming this summer and fall.

    Although it’s easy to think RANDYLL TARLY! here, there has already been a casting call for the character of Sam’s (John Bradley) dad; unless they’ve yet to find an actor to fill the role, and are sending another casting call for him.

    Hunter: A rough army officer on the hunt appearing in an action scene with the main cast for only one episode.

    Submissive Maester: The show is looking to cast a maester in his twenties, and is described as a timid young maester. He’s decent but has trouble standing up to others. He appears in one episode in Season 6.

    This could be Maester Kerwin, a young master who ran afoul of Victarion Greyjoy in A Dance with Dragons. Since Game of Thrones is only casting Victarion’s brother Euron "Crow’s Eye" -- the show might combine him with Victarion -- look for Theon’s (Alfie Allen) pirate uncle to possibly murder him (if it is Kerwin) early in the season.

    Green Recruit: A young man with one line and one day of filming in August.

    Sympathiser 1, 2 & 3: These are rough military types. One day of filming.

    Housemaid: HBO is looking to cast an actress between the ages of 45-65 with a Northern English Accent in the role of a motherly but stern nanny of a large houseold. She’ll be in two episodes.

    Father: A tough and old alpha male patriarch. The show is looking for a man with a Northern English Accent who will appear in one episode and has two lines.

    I think Ramsay will be the Republican nominee, and Tommen the Democrat.

    The bigotry portrayed in the casting of this show is crime of the worst type against southern whites.

    The Bolton flag needs to be removed from all store shelves as they're known to hold people captive and torture them without due process.
