  • 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.

    @vnguyen96 doosh and dooshier. they basically ruined 7 seasons worth of character development and GOT lore because they wanted Arya to be a Mary Sue and couldnt resist using green screens for everything.

    The hype surrounding the Night King that spanned 7 seasons, and then. He just became nothing but a MID-SEASON VILLAIN lmaoo!!

    @blueMJS the night king isnt named in the books, but the white walkers are. Theyve been prepared just as the night king in the series

    agriperma yes exactly thank you. A sensible comment. People who were fans of this show now call it a trash!!! Just because they didn’t like the ending they call the other 7 seasons trash! This is how ungrateful people are
