Thousands queue for chance to play Game of Thrones extra

Wanted: 2,400 men and women, aged between 18 and 65. Must be of slim build and in good physical condition. No tattoos. Previous experience with dragons desirable.

Okay, so we fabricated that last element - but the rest is an accurate description for the cast of extras HBO's Game of Thrones is currently looking for in the Spanish city of Tudelas. 

With the bloody finale of season five a dim-yet-painful memory, production for the sixth season is now well under way, with previous casting calls fuelling a wealth of fan theories on future plot lines. Filming in the northern Spanish cities of Tudela and Girona requires a veritable army of extras, likely needed for busy street scenes - or something more violent? Whatever their fate, thousands have turned up to try and seize the opportunity.

Should they be successful, the extras will be paid a daily rate of €50 (£35) between 3 and 18 September, with some camping overnight for a chance to audition for the parts. 

The arid location, interspersed with flashes of green and terracotta buildings, hint at the large crowds being required for Daenerys Targaryen's ongoing battles in the continent of Essos. 

Here's hoping they're well looked after before meeting their inevitable grizzly ends.
