Fans continue to be thrilled by HBO’s Game of Thrones which wrapped up its fifth season earlier this summer and now producers have released never before seen audition tapes which give insight into how some cast members landed their dream role.

The exclusive tapes were shared for the first time at Comic Con in San Diego, which was packed with fans of HBO’s most successful series.

Actors Gwendoline Christie, Pedro Pascal, Natalie Dormer and Kristofer Hivju each feature in the clip and can be seen uttering some of their most famous lines for the first time.

Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte in the fantasy drama, even utters what became one of the most iconic lines of season four ‘You know nothing Jon Snow.’

The stars of the hit show were at the event to promote the upcoming season of the show but revealed that none of their characters are safe when it comes to the show’s intricate story lines.

Natalie Dormer, who plays Margeary Tyrell said: "To be perfectly honest, honey, a lot of us here at the table are in the same position as you guys and I don’t have an effing clue what will happen."
