Game of Thrones season 4 blooper reel unveiled at Comic-Con 2014
From one actor nearly getting set on fire to another falling over, there were some side-splitting moments
Sunday 27 July 2014
Game of Thrones fans at San Diego Comic Con have been treated to a blooper reel from season 4 of the fantasy series, showing their favourite characters as they have never been seen before.
In one scene Pedro Pascal's Prince Oberyn nearly sets himself on fire with a flaming torch when he bumps into it while in Tyrion’s cell.

In another, Aryra trips over her legs in the middle of swordplay, sending both actress Maisie Williams and Rory McCann, who plays The Hound, into fits of laughter.
Possibly the funniest moment comes when the usually demure and graceful Daenerys, played by the equally refined Emilia Clarke, says to her captain Daario Naharis in a cockney accent: “I’m a khaleesi not a queen, for f**k’s sake, mate.”
The two-minute video was unveiled during a Game of Thrones panel with the cast and crew of the show.
Along with the gag reel, the makers unveiled the nine new characters joining the show for season five.
Among the stars to be added to the cast were 24 and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine actor Alexander Siddig, who will take on the role of Doran Martell, the wise if reticent ruler of Dorne.
Oscar-nominated Whale Rider actress, Keisha Castle-Hughes will be playing the feisty Obara Sand, one of the illegitimate daughters of the Oberyn Martell. She will be seeking vengeance after her father was murdered at the hands of The Mountain in season four.
The makers of the Game of Thrones, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, have previously said that they are feeling “a little intimidated” at the prospect of trying create new episodes to top season four.
Season five of Game of Thrones is expected to be out next year.
