The Untold Truth Of The Night King

  • Published on May 12, 2019
  • 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!

    I didn't have a problem with much of the final season. However, the biggest looming threat in the books and show in its entirety. The ultimate villain that could end the world and makes all of the battles and political squabbles seem all the more petty. All of that ended in a single episode...

    No knock on the actor, but not telling him his character's back story or motivations is terrible direction, especially for a central character. He performed the Night King great, considering what he was given, but they gave him such little depth

    The night king could have had a terminator moment. Landed solo at kings landing, killed a few people and raised them up, let the undead kill more and repeated. Without the means to kill him, kings landing would have lost. Wouldn't have fitted any character development or the story but would have been good to watch.

    "inadvertently"?? they created him to keep the [first] men in check. that was the whole purpose of it.

    The Night King should be immortal! And the only way to keep him away is beyond the wall after using dragon glass to kill his dragon and to seriously injure him... Then he'd get away...

    Well, GRRM may have thought the White Walkers represent climate change, but really they represent the long march of post-modernism through our institutions. Don't believe me? Wait a few years and see what they teach in university criticism courses. I'm kidding, of course.

    "the Targaryens are one of the oldest houses around" no. They conquered Westeros via dragons a few hundred years ago and were really only in Westeros a few hundred years, until Roberts Rebellion. They're not even Westerosi, they're old Valyrian. The starks, Lannisters, Martell's, arryns, greyjoys, etc have all been houses for thousands of years since the first men, and in the Martell's case even longer before Westeros was conquered.
    Also, he "hunts" starks because they're literally *in the north fighting him*. They are the North's first line of defense and he wants to kill Bran so he can take steps to eradicate mankind

    Hmm. Do you know who he was? A Plot Device who sank without a trace when Benioff and Weiss had to rush to the Cersei battle.

  • Κωνσταντίνος-Πέτρος Μέγας

    Arya killing the Night King was an utter bullshit. The Night King turned everybody into a white walker just by touching them. Even Bran, when he was just in a vision, got harmed just by the touch of the Night King. They literally ruined it when they decided to have Arya dealing the killing blow. But to be fair, the whole season 8 was rushed.

      At least he could have possessed Bran a second after he shattered. Then Bran could have jumped up out of his wheelchair and done evil things!

    I think that Night King was once 3eyed raven. If children of the forest pick strongest candidate for Night King, that can only be 3eyed raven in their minds. That would explain Night Kings knowledge of importance Weirwood trees had, and his strong connection with Bran. And the magical abilities of 3eyed raven could be perfect for Night kings magic.
