Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King, told Hungarian website SorozatWiki: "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."

Heaping praise on showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, he added: "They knew the bar was high. They've exceeded the bar. I've watched them twice without any CGI and I'm in awe. Everybody's in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production."

Sounds incredible - not too long to wait now, guys.
