game of thrones season 6 1

The Battle of the Bastards has been fought, but if you didn't see last night's episode, then don't worry, we're not going to spoil it for you. Instead, we're looking ahead to next year's series seven of 'Game of Thrones'. As are the programme makers.

They're already casting two new roles, according to fan site Watchers on the Wall. It says that the show is currently casting a 16-year-old northern girl, aka a young caucasian woman who can approximate a northern accent, who will take part in "a high-stakes scene with leading cast members".

The makers are also searching for a 10-year-old boy who too can sound northern in order to take part in the same scene.

Who will these characters be? It's anyone's guess. But fans have a few ideas.

They could be Lyanna and Benjen Stark – the two appeared in a flashback earlier this series, but they could be recast for series seven. Or the girl could be Alys Karstark, who takes part in an as-yet-unused subplot from George RR Martin's books. Or they could be completely new characters, there really is no way of knowing.

Series seven is said to consist of only seven episodes, prompting rumours that series eight will be similarly short. We're expecting series seven to air around April next year.
