The Night King from 'Game of Thrones' has been unmasked and fans are calling him a hunk
Having a crush on a bad guy is something most of us can attest to.
For me, it's Kylo Ren. He's oddly attractive in my eyes, and let's face it, if your parents were the most famous people in the galaxy, you'd be pretty f*cked up too. Plus, there's still a chance that he could become a bad guy turned good.
But one person almost no one had a crush on until now (yeah, there's some pretty weird fan fiction out there, but trust me, I googled this one and found nothing) is the Night King. Sure, he was powerful, I'll give you that, but unless you've got a penchant for zombies, being cold and a willingness to do anything for icy blue eyes, he probably wasn't your cup of tea.
... Not to mention the fact that his goal was the annihilation of life as we knew it on Westeros.
The is what the Night King looked like before he was the leader of the undead:
However, you may not look at the Night King in such an unfavorable light again when you see the actor who plays him.
This is the jaw-dropping moment the Night King met his unexpected end:
It's the hunky Slovakian stuntman-turned-actor Vladimir Furdik.
I mean, I can't be the only person who's jealous of that horse. Right? RIGHT?!
The handsome 48-year-old has been in the role since season six. Before then, the Night King was played by Welsh actor Richard Brake.
If you've got a very keen eye for hunky stuntmen, you will have seen Furidk before in The Three Musketeers (1993), which is where he got his big break.
Although, after GOT, there's no doubt that he's going to go down in acting history for playing one of TV's most seemingly indestructible characters. Phwar!
I never thought a day would come when I'd rather be taken by the Night King than Tormund and his Giantsbane, but here we are.
This is what could have been if Arya's journey had been a little different - and the Night King had been a little less undead.
After all, I think we can all agree that it's better to get ruled by a hunky bad guy than one who looks like a slug!
If you haven't seen it yet, this the preview trailer for episode four:
Proof that being undead isn't a good look on anyone. Thanks for finishing the job, Arya. Now he's free to be a sexy ghost.
