‘Game Of Thrones’ Took 55 Days To Shoot One Epic Battle For Season 8
"It was the most unpleasant experience I’ve had on ‘Thrones.'"
The final season of Game of Thrones is almost among us (40 DAYS PEOPLE) and we’re still pretty much in the dark about what it’s gonna be like.
We know it’s gonna be awesome, obviously.
And we know that the cast and crew have been working their butts off the last year to bring us a killer finale.
Apparently the show has been taking extreme measures to keep every detail a secret. There have been rumours that multiple decoy endings have been filmed and actors were given earpieces instead of scripts to learn their lines.
Fan websites have also speculated that the show spent 55 days shooting just ONE battle scene.
Which turns out to be true.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the epic battle will take place over ONE FULL EPISODE.
Yes, you read that right: there’s an episode in Season 8 that’s 90 minutes of just fighting.
According to EW, the episode will see all of your favourites fight alongside each other against the Night King and his army in the great battle of Winterfell.
The episode is expected to be the longest consecutive battle sequence ever filmed
and took 11 weeks of non-stop night shoots to complete.
In the freezing cold countryside.
Sounds like WinterHELL.
“Nothing can prepare you for how physically draining it is,” Maisie Williams told EW.
“It’s night after night, and again and again, and it just doesn’t stop… there are moments you’re just broken as a human and just want to cry.”
Iain Glen, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, said “It was the most unpleasant experience I’ve had on Thrones.”
“A real test, really miserable. You get to sleep at seven in the morning and when you wake in the midday you’re still so spent you can’t really do anything, and then you’re back.”
The epic episode will also be the first time many GoT major characters will be seen together since the show’s debut episode in 2011.

Sorry, stupid question.
