Flicks And The City hosted the Game of Thrones panel at Em-Con this weekend with the show’s stars Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon), Ian McElhinney (Barristan Selmy), Luke Barnes (Rast), and Josef Altin (Pyp).

Check out the video to see Kristian, Gethin, Ian, Luke and Josef chat about their highlights from season 3, how shooting season 4 compared to filming previous seasons, Gethin’s favourite memories of filming seasons 1 and 2, what it was like filming Kristian’s nude scene in a forest, Richard Madden’s joke with Kristian’s on-screen prosthetic, which character deaths surprised them most, who deserves to win the Iron Throne, their favourite sets, recreating the Winterfell castle, filming in Iceland, Kristian responds to a fan’s praise about coming out, which character they’d like their own character to meet on the show, the worst present they’ve ever received, Gethin’s story of Jack Gleeson sending back a jelly baby with the head bitten off, and what they’d like to see happen to Joffrey.

The cast also talk about their thoughts on the GoT parody Game of Bones, Gethin’s short story about what Renly and Loras do between seasons of the show, what a spin-off Renly and Loras show would involve, Kristian’s audition process for Hodor, which role Luke Barnes read for before he got the role of Rast, which roles Ian McElhinney auditioned for before he took the role of Barristan Selmy, the funniest thing that’s happened to them on set including Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) getting trapped in a lift and Sean Bean (Ned Stark) drenching a fully-costumed Gethin when his car drove through a puddle, and misunderstood characters.
