Night King actor shares 'Game of Thrones' behind-the-scenes videos
The final episode of Game of Thrones has been talked about ad nauseam, and I don't really want to talk about it much more. But one thing you can say for the episode is that it helped us forget about the wet fart of an episode that saw off one of the biggest threats put forward on Game of Thrones: the Army of the Dead.
Yeah, do you remember those guys? The White Walkers, thought to be the biggest enemy facing our heroes? An unstoppable zombie army led by the Night King, who wanted nothing but to erase human history but had to settle for getting stabbed by Arya?
Yeah, the Night King ended up not amounting to much at all, but Vladimir Furdik is already contributing more to our enjoyment of Game of Thrones than his character ever did. Now that the final season's all wrapped up (let's not go as far as to say neatly), Furdik has posted a ton of behind-the-scenes footage of season eight of the HBO fantasy epic.
That's interesting, right? Well, folks, you ain't seen nothin' yet: here's a whole load of footage from the epic battle scene from episode three of the final season: the Battle of Winterfell.
Here's some behind-the-scenes footage of the White Walkers doing their thing:
Seriously, is Furdik even allowed to be sharing this sort of stuff?
If that wasn't enough, Furdik also recorded the moment he fell from the sky via dragon, in a move that would have to have hurt if you're not a near-indestructible zombie hell-bent on eradicating human life. Unfortunately, Furdik only plays one. This is footage of his big fall:
Next up, Furdik showed us footage of himself training with Iain Glen aka Ser Jorah Mormont - not that it did him any good, ultimately.
Next up, it's more footage from The Battle of Winterfell, as well as the biggest moment from the episode (one we've already seen above): Arya Stark gettin' her stab on with the King of the Dead.
Furdik's footage isn't limited to that particular episode of Game of Thrones, either; he also managed to capture Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark practicing her dramatic walk in episode five, as well as the climactic moment of CleganeBowl.
Here's Arya practicing that walk:
Here's The Hound taking down The Mountain:
Were you like me, and you weren't at all pleased by the ending of Game of Thrones? This might not be a totally new season, but these behind-the-scenes bits will make the disappointment a little bit more bearable. I hope.
