Watch the audition tapes that made the Game of Thrones Cast famous
Whether it's Rory McCann's Hound losing his temper with an invisible Sansa, Tormund Giantsbane munching on a carrot or a really, really young Maisie Williams laying down some anti-Lannister truths, the tapes are a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain to see how the machine works.
Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams (Arya).
Two tapes spliced together to make one conversation (from Series One, when the two sisters are traveling to Kings Landing in the Queen's wheelhouse, by the way). They are unfathomably young.
Rory McCann (The Hound)
One very angry younger brother.
Milton Yerolemou (Syrio Forel).
Arya's much-missed "dancing master", the former First Sword to the Sealord of Braavos, puts a casting director through his paces.
