Game of Thrones probably isn’t known for being particularly funny, what with all the murder and gore. So it’s good to see the cast don’t let the grisly plotlines get them down. They’re professionals!

At Comic-Con 2016, a blooper reel for this year’s past season six surfaced during the HBO show’s panel, and it looks like Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke are the most gaffe-prone and accident-prone members of the Game of Thrones cast.

Despite playing the no-fun Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke has an infectious laugh and personality and just can’t speak Dothraki.

Dinklage, meanwhile, can’t get his tongue around plain old English, as he struggles with the word “benevolent”. Other clips show Kit Harington messing around and Rory McCann (The Hound) failing to swing an axe.

Stars that made it to the Comic-Con panel included Sophie Turner, Iwan Rheon, and Isaac Hempstead Wright. They appeared alongside showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Fans have a long wait ahead for season seven to premiere on HBO. Instead of the usual spring debut, the show will start in summer 2017.

Casey Bloys, HBO’s programming chief, said in a statement: “Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss  felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing.”

“Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

The season will also only run for seven episodes, instead of ten. (Perhaps this isn’t a bad thing, if it means no more filler episodes.)

Check out the blooper reel below. Also take a look at the new season seven teaser, which is basically a series of clips of production crew getting to work, albeit beautifully shot.
