Watch the Game of Thrones audition reel

The Game of Thrones panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 amounted to little more than a victory lap - with another hit season under their belt and Season 6 yet to start production, there was not much for the creators and cast of the show to do then sit back and bask in the fan adoration. Of course, it'd have been something of a let-down if they didn't at least bring something along for the faithful. This year, it was a nifty little audition real showing the several members of the cast doing their screen tests for the show. See Pedro Pascal ooze smooth menace, hear Rose Leslie say, "You know nothing, Jon Snow" for the first time, and watch the lady Melisandre flub her lines in what amounts to a charming reminder that, before these people were heroes and heroines of epic fantasy, they were just actors trying to get a gig.
