Night King actor reveals pretty big spoiler about a vital scene in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8
The Night King is no keeper of secrets, apparently.
Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8 may lie ahead!
You know it’s coming. You might even have seen that major spoiler . The ultimate battle between the living and the dead will be upon us in Season 8 of Game of Thrones. And one major character just let slip a pretty big piece of information about said battle.
Game of Thrones star Vladimír Furdík, who plays the frightening, blue-eyed creature that is The Night King, revealed that the legendary battle might be on your screen sooner that you’d expect.
Since Game of Thrones has the habit of letting the penultimate episode of the season be the most dramatic (see episodes “The Rains of Castamere,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “Beyond the Wall” for reference), fans had expected the fifth episode of the six-part finale to feature the battle-to-end-all-battles.
But, according to Furdík, we won’t have to wait quite that long. Speaking at a fan convention in Hungary, the Slovakian actor said that the battle will take place in the middle of the season.
“In the third episode of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intended to be a historic moment in television,” said Furdík, according to Hungarian site SorozatWiki. Mashable had a native speaker of Hungarian verify the translation of the quote.
Furdík is talking about the battle that famously took 55 days to film . According to Furdík, the 55-day battle has been cut down to about an hour of action-packed television.
“Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about one hour,” Furdík said.
