The Night King Speaks! Well, The Actor Who Plays Him Talks About That One Scene









Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode saw the end of the infamous leader of the White Walkers, the Night King (I wonder if someone yelled, “Hey Night King!” at him, do you think he would turn around?) shattered into pieces by a girl, a girl better known as Arya Stark of Winterfell. A surprising turn of events as a good number of fans seemed to think it was going to come down to Jon Snow vs Night King in a one-on-one duel for the ages.

The actor who plays the Night King, Vladimír Furdík, recently spoke with Variety, and talked about the scene in which his character was defeated at the end of the chaotic episode. You can check out what he had to say below.

“This was one of the hardest days of my life. I did many difficult stunts, running through fire, many crazy things. But this moment with Arya when I grab her, and the emotions from Maisie were so strong, I felt like I spent all my energy that day. It was raining, it was cold, it wasn’t easy for Maisie to jump at the right time, it wasn’t easy for me to grab her at the right time, it was the most difficult thing to do in front of a camera.”

I remember seeing Arya emerge behind the Night King, and I was frozen (pun not originally intended but I’ll go with it), she was in the air for what seemed like forever (yeah I know it was in slow motion). When the Night King grabbed her around her neck, I thought he was going to snap it, or Loki her and squeeze it til she was no more. Of course that didn’t happen, as we know Arya pulled the old drop the blade to the other hand trick, stabbed the pointy headed ice zombie, and cemented herself as a legend, perhaps thee legend of Westeros. They said no one could kill the Night King, and “no one” did.

Oddly enough, I predicted Arya would be the one. Well, I was close enough that I’m counting it as a win. Click here, bottom of the article.
