20 Icelandic goats took part in the filming of Game of Thrones, and their owner says they’re not as dumb as you might think.

Vísir spoke with Jóhanna Bergmann Þorvaldsdóttir, a goat farmer from Háafell in Borgarfjörður. It was her goats which were used for a scene in Game of Thrones that was filmed in Þórufoss in Mosfellsdal.

The goat in question, Casanova (not shown above), was the star of the scene, as he was attacked by a dragon. Rest assured, though, that this was just TV magic at work – Casanova is unharmed.

In order to get the goats to run away at the same time for the filming, crew blew a loud whistle at them. By the third take, Jóhanna says, Casanova was no longer impressed. “He thought humans were rather stupid to think they could scare him with the same noise three times.”

Casanova posed for photographs with Canadian tourists and crew before they departed. And in case you were wondering, you can adopt one of Jóhanna’s goats, too. No word on what the now increased value of Casanova will run you, though.
