Game of Thrones to break the record for setting people on fire

Entertainment Weekly writes that Game of Thrones has set the largest number of people on fire in a production. However, Guinness World Records has never kept a record of immolated cast members.

But Game of Thrones has something Guinness doesn’t have: the voice of experience, Rowley Irlam, aka Thrones’ stunt coordinator.

“One sequence has 73 fire burns, and that itself is a record,” Irlam said. “No film or TV show has ever done that in a whole show, let alone in one sequence. We also set 20 people on fire at one time, which is also a record. I think in Saving Private Ryan they had 13 on a beach, and on Braveheart they had 18 partial burns. Because of the nature of our attacking animals, we had the liberty to expand on that.”
