If you’ve ever been lucky enough to attend Comic-Con, you know the historic Hall H is where the serious news goes down. Epic lines wrap around the convention center to feed into the largest sitting-room at the con, and hard-core fans line up hours in advance. This year, Loki-philes may have had their Must-See Panel, but Game-of-Throners knew the real Westerosi gossip was at the ‘Game of Thrones‘ panel, packed with such crowd pleasers as George R.R. Martin himself, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), and many more.

Oh, and before we go any further, let’s just throw out a spoiler alert for the TV show. If you’re not up to date with the series, you most definitely shouldn’t watch this. There are no book spoilers, however, so if you haven’t read the books you’ll be safe. Although if you HAVE read the books, there are a few wink-wink-nudge-nudges they seem to have thrown in just for you, and non-book-readers are none the wiser!

You can watch the entire hour-long panel below, where the actors talk about everything from whether they’ve read the books to preparing for particularly difficult scenes to a special guest appearance by everyone’s favorite Khal at 14:43. It’s also pretty awesome to hear everyone’s true accents.

‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 is in the works, but the long winter lasts until 2014.
