Watch: This ‘Games of Thrones’ Audition Tape Will Show You Exactly Why These Actors Were Cast

This Game of Thrones audition reel compilation is pretty great.

The video, which was shown at last year’s Comic-Con (how did we miss this?), feature actors Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie, Rose Leslie, Pedro Pascal and Liam Cunningham audition tapes. They’re then cut to show the actual scenes from the show, creating a very cool effect.

My favorite was actor Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund in the show. He’s got a carrot and spits it out mid-scene. I’m not sure if I’d recommend doing that in a casting directors office though.

The acting is seamless in each clip and you can tell why each actor was cast.

Check it out above!
