Game Of Thrones Season Eight Episodes Set To Be As Shocking As The Red Wedding

Game Of Thrones Season Eight Episodes Set To Be As Shocking As The Red Wedding

There just a few short days to go until season eight of Game of Thrones hits our screens and the director of the now iconic 'Rains Of Castamere' episode says there are more shocking moments to come.

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 he and the rest of the cast and crew worked hard on the upcoming 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."
