Game Of Thrones – Director David Nutter Reveals The Key Aspect To Season 8

Directorial virtuoso David Nutter has left his mark on the world of television. Having directed episodes everything from The Sopranos to The Flash, as well as Supernatural, and one of the most shocking episodes in the history of television for what some consider to be greatest television show of all time, Game of Thrones.

Yes, David Nutter helmed the “Red Wedding” episode, which is actually has a much more beautifully misleading name, “The Rains of Castamere.” Nutter has directed three of the four Season 8 episodes so far. Miguel Sapochnik, who gave us the panic attack inducing “Battle of Winterfell” will head up episode 8.5, with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (known to fans as D&D) sure to crush every fiber of our being in the finale.

Nutter recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and said moments like the end of Sunday’s episode “The Last of The Starks,” (if you’re reading this article, I will assume you know all too well the events that transpired) comes from a utilizing what some might call a simple, but perhaps often underused technique, letting the actors rehearse, more so giving them the time to do so comes from a utilizing what some might call a simple, but perhaps often underused technique, letting the actors rehearse, more so giving them the time to do so. You can check out what Nutter said down below.

“It was really important that we gave the actors all this time to rehearse before they got to set, because sometimes they get to set and so many things are going on — the crew is doing this, the crew is doing that — that the actors can lose their perspective.”

Nutter continued, revealing the serveral extra miles he seems to go when on set.

“Before all the actors got together and we read through the scripts, I went to the casting director and talked about the rehearsal schedule. I went back to my desk and typed up every sequence, every rehearsal, and for the next four days, we rehearsed the actors either in the sets they were shooting in or with a table and a chair — whatever we needed in order to establish the sequence. I took all the actors and all the sequences and blocked them all out. I invited David and Dan to come to all the rehearsals so they could see everything that was happening. They were happy with the blocking I’d suggested, and they made their suggestions where they needed to, and the cameraman, David Franco, was there as well. That way, when we got to the [day of the shoot], all the actors knew their blocking and we could get right down to business shooting.”

It’s no wonder Nutter’s list of directing credits stretch from the original 21 Jump Street, to The X-Files, Sopranos, Band of Brothers, and nearly everything else in between. Fans know with Sapochnik back next week, a battle comes with him. Be wary of D&D this week, while they’ve hit us hard in season finales before, they’re also not afraid to drop the hammer in penultimate episodes, and this is it, no reason for them to hold back. It’s going to get ugly on the battlefield and perhaps even uglier as far as truces, treasons, betrayals.
