Game Of Thrones' Biggest Episode In Final Season Took 55 Nights To Film

There are just three days to go until the final season of Game of Thrones hits screens and it's safe to say that people are pretty excited about it all.

But great things don't come easy and Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, has revealed that just one episode took an incredible 55 nights to film, and admitted the actors were ready to 'kill each other' by the end.

Speaking to Graham Norton ahead of season eight, the King of the North said: "I'm not sure I should tell you about it, but it was so intense we were all on the edge of killing each other.

"They have really upped the budget and gone to town - it is really exciting. There are some incredible sequences, but I've woken up in the middle of the night recently thinking, 'What if, after eight seasons, we've have mucked it up'."

It's not quite clear which episode the actor was talking about, but this season is set to see the biggest television battle ever - meaning it will top the iconic 'Battle of the Bastards' - which is frightening thought in itself. Maybe it was that?

And fans won't have to wait long to see it unfold, as earlier this year Vladimir Furdik, who plays the show's infamous Night King, said: "In the third part of the last season, there is a battle that the creators intend to be the biggest in television history. Almost the full episode will be about the battle, it will take about an hour."

An hour-long fight. Hell, yes.

But, if that doesn't rev your engine, how about the avant-garde masterpiece, Game of Bones 2: Winter Came Everywhere? A slight change of pace, I think you'll agree.

Brought to you by the creative giants, WoodRocket and Pornhub, the movie is an erotic parody of the fantasy drama, and according to its makers, is one for the ages.

In a press release, the painfully self-aware studio promise big things for fans, saying: "This sequel is so dirty it makes the first parody embarrassed by its lack of hardcore dragon sex, people disguised as dildos, white walker masturbation, royal penetration, giant-genital'd Wildings and magical step-relative banging.

"Who will survive this raunchy penetration-filled medieval fantasy when the White Wankers bust through The Peter North Wall!?! Find out, in Game of Bones 2: Winter Came Everywhere."

All jokes aside, for all the latest fan theory and news ahead of the final season of the actual GOT, which will air on 15 April, head over to Game Of Thrones: Westeros Posting on Facebook. You're welcome.
