Game of Thrones sets record for most people set on fire

The highly anticipated new season of Game of Thrones is going to set the world record for the most people set on fire.

The feat will add to the growing list of records set by the show including most Emmy's won by a scripted show.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner David Benioff revealed that in one particular scene, 73 stuntmen were set on fire simultaneously. That beats the previous record already held by the show with 20 fire burns in season five when Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, sets her fire-breathing dragon on her enemies.

The only other film or TV production to come close to the record was war film Saving Private Ryan with 13 people set on fire.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones is set to premiere July 16 on HBO.
