Game of Thrones

So, it seems the episode you've been waiting for in the final season of Game of Thrones, the episode that features pretty much all your favorite characters together, fighting the Night King's army, was pretty much hell to shoot.

The epic battle included fan-favorites Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) all fighting for their lives, with the actors shooting 11 weeks of night shoots, according to EW.

"It was the most unpleasant experience I've had on Thrones," Iain Glen, Ser Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones, told EW. "A real test, really miserable. You get to sleep at seven in the morning and when you wake in the midday you're still so spent you can't really do anything, and then you're back. You have no life outside it. You have an absolute f—ked bunch of actors. But without getting too method [acting] about it, on screen it bleeds through to the reality of the Thrones world."

It's reportedly one of the biggest battle sequences ever to be captured on film. Don't say Game of Thrones is skimping on you with just six episodes in the final season.
