The American cable company has put out a casting call for a "sassy and attractive girl" from the North along with a "colourful young Northern actor" to play a sentry.

And, according to the hugely popular GOT fan site Watchers On The Wall, the hit show is also on the lookout for a "mercenary character".

The character is described as: “An authoritative, fit, cool and charismatic military type" and will need to be "able to ride a horse."

There's also a casting call for a “rough and ready, sea-faring type" sailor, while another new character will be a 25-35-year-old farmer described as a “straightforward, honest man of simple tastes who works on the land”.
