Game of Thrones blooper reel released

Peter Dinklage plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones

Ahead of the show's fifth season, see the cast swear, stumble and fumble lines

Winter is no longer coming, it’s basically been and gone, which means that we can definitely start getting excited about Game of Thrones season five this spring. Come Sun 12 Apr, it’s back to dramatic family feuds, distressing death scenes and, of course, the eternal struggle to keep cold-handed dead things from rising up and destroying Westeros as we know it.

Though the show does feature the odd funny moment (see everything Tyrion ever says for reference), its particular brand of black comedy does tend to be darker than a Night’s Watch cloak.

No more, though. A blooper reel has been released, which shows a whole load of fun, friendship and f-words happening on set. In it, you can see smooth-talking Prince Oberyn succumb to a coughing fit, a spirited young kitten get in the way of a scene with Margaery Tyrell and Peter Dinklage (who plays Tyrion) flourish a pink handheld fan. And as with most blooper reels, you see people forget their lines, trip over and do a wee bit of swearing.

NB: This video contains images of King Joffrey (just when you thought he was gone for good).

Game of Thrones season five airs on HBO Sun 12 Apr; and on Sky Atlantic Mon 13 Apr
