Game Of Thrones season 8: the Night King “has a target he wants to kill”

Posted Filed under

Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King in Game Of Thrones, has revealed some interesting details regarding his character’s trajectory in Game Of Thrones season 8. You can find out more here…

Furdik has been playing The Night King since Game Of Thrones season 5 introduced the character in 2015. For a character that made such a late arrival into the show, he didn’t take long to become one of the most instantly recognisable elements of the series.

And now, chatting to Entertainment Weekly in a big preview piece for Game Of Thrones’ final season, Furdik has said this about where his icy antagonist character is currently at:

“Somebody made him the Night King. Nobody knows who he was before — a soldier or part of [nobility]. He never wanted to be the Night King. I think he wants revenge. Everybody in this story has two sides — a bad side and a good side. The Night King only has one side, a bad side

People will see he has a target he wants to kill, and you will find out who that is. There’s also that moment [in “Hardhome”] when Jon Snow was on the boat and the Night King looked at him and raised his arms — there’s a similar and even stronger moment between Jon and the Night King this time.”

Game Of Thrones season 8 premieres on April 14th, and we can’t wait to find out what Furdik is alluding to here.
