The Night King does not speak much. He does not actually speak at all. But the actor who played the powerful White Walker in the last two seasons of ‘Game of Thrones’ does so and he says that he comes very specifically for someone when he leads the Army of the Dead during their invasion of Winterfell.
Of course, actor Vladimir Furdik would not actually say who that person is, so we all have to wait until ‘Game of Thrones’ returns next month for his eighth and last season to find out.
“People will see that he has a target he wants to kill, and you will discover who that is,” Furdik told Entertainment Weekly in an interview. According to Furdik, however, many of the fans of the show with whom he has spoken have one character on their wish list and not who you think: “Many people ask me:” Can you please kill Jon Snow? “, He said.” It is very interesting. “
We would not blame Furdik if he had a grudge against the former Lord’s Watch Lord Commander of Kit Harington. Before he took over the role of the night king in season 6 – Richard Blake initially played him in the season 5 “Hardhome” episode – Furdik still played a White Walker in that fateful fight. And it was just as coincidentally the one who killed Jon Snow with his sword Longclaw, breaking up into a million icy pieces.
We will probably discover who that special person is during the long-awaited ‘Battle of Winterfell’, when literally almost every major ‘Game of Thrones’ character has to face the White Walkers in what has been bullied as the most impressive battle sequence in the history of TV or film.
Furdik also added that the Night King wants to take revenge this season.
“Someone has made him the night king. Nobody knows who he was – a soldier or a part of [nobility]. He never wanted to be the Night King. I think he wants revenge. ‘
But even if Jon Snow is not the one the Night King is looking for, Furdik said that there is still a big moment between them. “There is also that moment [in” Hardhome “] when Jon Snow was on the boat and the Night King looked at him and lifted his arms – there is a similar and even stronger moment between Jon and the Night King this time.”
