Night King Actor Reveals Huge Detail About A Crucial Episode Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 8—And It Changes Everything ????

*DIRE WARNING: If you wish to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers, read no further!*

In Spring 2019, Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season will arrive. Fans will finally know which Starks survive and which will fall; whether Jaime joining forces with the forces of good makes a difference in the battle against the darkness; and who, ultimately, will sit on the Iron Throne.

Over the past seven seasons, fans have become accustomed to a fairly regular routine where the year’s most dramatic world events occur in the season’s penultimate episodes. “The Rains of Castamere,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “Beyond the Wall” all featured epic deaths and/or set pieces just before a final episode that teased more bloodshed to come in the future. Because of this “formula,” many fans have assumed that the final, epic battle between the Night King and the armies of Westeros would happen in the fifth episode of the six-episode finale.

Then Vladimír Furdík, who plays the Night King himself, told the Hungarian site SorozatWiki this important tidbit:

“In the third episode of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intended to be a historic moment in television.”

Many assume Furdík is speaking of the epic Winterfell battle sequence that reportedly took 55 days to film, a record for GoT

According to Furdík, the battle in question will take up almost all of the hour-long episode in which it’s featured, translating to roughly one minute for every day of shooting.

That’s how you get quality shots, people!

“Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about one hour.”

Obviously, fans were as hyped as they’ve ever been.

The big question is what will happen in the remaining three episodes once the battle with the White Walkers has ended, for better or for worse. The only way to find out will be to watch for yourself in April 2019!
