Oct 11, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A casting call for HBO’s "Game of Thrones" is looking for male amputees, willing to be filmed in a battle where their legs have been injured, reports the New York Post.

The casting is for one of the book series’ most famous scenes, the Red Wedding, which is filming in Northern Ireland. Interested actors are asked to send in "a clear description regarding where your limb is missing eg. at knee, at ankle, etc.”

“Prosthetic makeup will be applied as though your leg has newly been severed. We understand that this is not for everyone, so please only apply if you are happy to participate," the casting notice reads.

The Red Wedding, in which a wedding between two clans turns into a massacre, is a crucial turning point in the fantasy novel’s plot.
