Next Episode Of Game Of Thrones May Be As Shocking As The Red Wedding
I'm not sure where you've been hiding if you didn't already know that the new season of Game of Thrones has kicked off but it must have been somewhere pretty damn lonely.
When I say kicked off, I do of course mean that we are in fact three episodes in and things are getting more and more intense by the week.
But it's only going to get better by the looks of things because the upcoming episode four which will air next week is directed by David Nutter and it will be his last ever directing role on GoT.
This will be his ninth episode since 2012, with 'The Rains of Castamere' already under his belt as a strong fan favourite.
The episode is famous for the bloody and brutal Red Wedding scene, in which both Queen Talisa Stark and son, Robb, are killed. And when asked if there will be more of the same in the final season, David Nutter said: "The short answer is - yes!"
Speaking to the Metro, the director said that he and the rest of the cast and crew worked hard on the new season, admitting filming some of the bloody battle scenes are extremely 'exhausting'.
David said: "I can't say that it's more draining or less draining to be the director of the episode, but I will say that we're all in the same boat, actors and director, when it comes to really bringing our 'A game' to the fore.
"Battle scenes are just incredibly exhausting for all concerned. Having said that, they are, at the same time, sometimes tedious - because there's so much minute detail to deal with, from both an acting and directing standpoint.
"Horses, armaments, special effects are all vying for our attention and energy, in a lot of cases, and it's true that it's exhausting trying to lasso all of these elements into a coherent whole."
FYI, my nerdy little heart sings when I see David Nutter in the director's credits of #GameofThrones. He directed some classic episodes of #TheXFiles, which was my first fandom. It's nice to see how my creative faves grow over time.

When it comes to The Red Wedding episode, Nutter told Cheddar News: "I would tell you that, get ready, hold on sit down and hold yourself in your seat because it's going to be special."
We heard you loud and clear, sir.
