Most of the stars of Game of Thrones were pretty much plucked from obscurity for their roles on the series, but it's easy to see why they were chosen to play their characters, as this audition reel shows.

It features Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), Rory McCann (The Hound), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) and loads more.

Hats off to Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) though, who went and performed the Haka in his audition.
