Over the course of its five-season run, the HBO fantasy adaptation Game of Thrones has received critical and commercial praise for many facets, with the performances in particular being singled out. However, the fantasy nature of the show has often meant that the characters and their surrounding environment are very context-specific. This, in turn, leads to challenges when casting notable roles, with many curious to know what successful auditions for the show look like.
To that end, HBO has now released an audition roll of various performers who inhabited iconic roles on the show. The clip includes Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell, Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell, and Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte. The audition roll can be seen below.
