  • One of Game of Thrones' longest-running bad guys remained a mystery to readers and viewers until the HBO series' eighth and final season: the Night King, the ancient creature who created and led the formidable Army of the Dead. We still don't know much about the White Walker king, but from behind-the-scenes tidbits to fan theories, here's the untold truth of this menacing bad guy. Slovakian actor Vladimir Furdík might be the most recognizable face of the Night King at this point, but the truth is, he only started playing the character in the show's sixth season, prior to that, the role was played by Richard Brake, best known for films like Batman Begins or Kingsman: The Secret Service. Brake and Furdík actually overlapped: while Brake was playing the Night King, Furdík played the high-ranking White Walker that Jon Snow shatters to pieces with his Valyrian steel sword. The transition between the two actors was so seamless that many may not have noticed, though some fans found Brake's appearance even more frightening.Furdík was an indispensable part of the Thrones team long before he stepped into the Night King's frozen shoes. He worked on everything from the fight scene at the Tower of Joy as well as performing and working on everything from high falls to intense sword fights. When it came time to recast the Night King, there was no better choice than Furdík, who knew the show's action set pieces inside and out. Keep watching the video to see the rest of the untold truth of the Night King!#GoT #GameOfThrones #NightKingPlayed by a stuntman | 0:20One of the First Men | 1:12Unintended consequences | 2:03Late in the Game | 2:31Different from the books | 3:10Erase the world's memory | 3:53The Night Bran? | 4:48A Night nobleman | 5:36Not much to go on | 6:24You're fired | 7:11Night King dethroned | 7:56One last, long night | 8:49

    The fact that there was no additional back story for the night king just pisses me off

    The children of the forest: Can you kill the humans so we can win this war?
    White Walker: Must. Kill. Everything.
    The children of the forest: Wait what.

    This was literally 10 minutes of stretched out stuff we all know. Is this entire channel like this?

    Thumbs down since Looper still hasn't learned how to use "Untold Truth" correctly.
    There is nothing Looper can tell us that the books do not. So stop being liars

    I learned nothing here. Everything was previously explained already. The Night King was the coolest character in GoT in my honest opinion.

    I really feel like I'm alone, and I might as well be.
    But come on maaaaan I really wanted the NK to win lol. The last 3 episodes should have been of Cersei learning they lost and that he's coming for King's Landing. Last episode should be him sitting on the throne after the fight (which, without dragonglass would be short lived). And then the camera pans over Westeros and the dead are everywhere and the storm dies away.

    Im sure the NK is a Stark. Who knows maybe his real name is Winter and this is why the Stark words are Winter is Coming.

    The whole video becomes bogus because GOT made the Night king arc look like a Naruto filler episode.......... i mean too tell you how horribly they screwed up, they never should have build night king this much if they weren't going to use him correctly

    I don’t think they did the knight king justice, he literally brought a winter storm with him
