Game of Thrones season seven may be long done and dusted, but the creators are still giving us insight into how some of its most complex scenes were created.
We mean, we need something to fill the gap between seasons, right?
In their latest behind-the-scenes clip, the director and stars of final episode 'The Dragon and The Wolf' revealed how that terrifying Wight which Jon Snow and co brought to King's Landing came to life.
Played by stunt performer Michael Byrch, the Wight's missing body parts were created by covering parts of his costume in green material for green screen purposes.
"One Wight is way more complicated than 10,000 Wights, because you're dealing with a Wight with a lot of detail," director Jeremy Podeswa explained.
Another clip has also dropped (via Nerdist), focusing on an entirely different scene from the same episode – the one where Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) finally got what was coming to him.
"I was speaking to Aidan about it," Maisie Williams recalled of the deceptive Petyr Baelish. "And he was like, 'It was a real shame because I always thought Littlefinger was a good person.'
"And I sort of turned around and was like, 'That's why you play him so well. You don't play him like he's a bad character, you play him like every one of his decisions is justified.'"
The Game of Thrones cast are already gearing up for filming of season eight, and Davos Seaworth star Liam Cunningham recently revealed that they have already seen their scripts.
"I got them all. I can't open them because of all the security, and I can't walk it out," he said.
