Laugh at the Lannisters in 'Game of Thrones' blooper reel

HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" is packed with death, despair and destruction. But the set is also full of laughs, especially when actors mess up their lines.

Anyone who's seen HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" knows that it's not exactly an upbeat show. Death, betrayal and numerous other tragedies lurk around every corner in Westeros and Essos, but that doesn't mean the mood is somber and dark while filming.

In a clip posted to YouTube, "Game of Thrones" actors are seen flubbing their lines, often pretty hilariously. The blooper reel features plenty of forgotten lines, random cat appearances and actors being goofballs or tripping over themselves while trying to deliver the high-quality show so many of us love. Perhaps the best part is when Tywin Lannister breaks off a piece of the Iron Throne, and tries to act as if nothing had happened.

It's good to see that even while filming such heavy material, the actors who play our favorite "Game of Thrones" characters still manage to have a good time. Check out the full clip at the top of this post, and let the anticipation build for Season 5, which debuts on HBO April 12.
