Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. Warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 4.
Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up.
So that’s what GoT was missing all this time: tripping! Nothing to ruin a badass strut like a stumble down the stairs.
It’s odd to see these characters smile. It’s easy to forget that they are acting. And yes, that’s a good thing.
I wonder how many times Jack Gleeson (Joffrey) messed up that kiss with Natalie Dormer. I know I would force a dozen or more retakes. Lucky guy.
And let’s hear it for Sir Pounce – that little diva of a cat who just wouldn’t stay put. #hailsirpounce.
