Night King actor takes fans behind the scenes of Hardhome, the Battle of Winterfell and more


Are you familiar with Vladimir Furdik? He played the Night King on Game of Thrones, and served as the show’s stunt coordinator. He also LOVES tweeting behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the set of of the show. If you’re ever feeling nostalgic for Thrones days of yore, Furdik’s Twitter account is the place to be.

Perhaps one of my favorite new posts is one Furdik recently shared of himself in full White Walker makeup and costume stretching out before battling Kit Harington (Jon Snow) back in season 5, during the Massacre at Hardhome. (Remember, Richard Brake was playing the Night King back then.) Check it out, and be transported back in time:
