Kit has named the sequences involving the show’s various CGI dragons as among the toughest to make, particularly having initially doubted co-star Emilia Clarke when she told him how hard it was.
“Emilia had been moaning about it for seasons, and I was like, ’Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “You have not been through the mud in Northern Ireland. A buck in a nice warm room? But she was absolutely right.
“It was horrific. It’s not acting at all. It is not acting, it never will be acting, and it is not what I’d signed up for. It is very uncomfortable as a man.”
He also named the final season’s battles as something he “hated” filming, but said it was worth it when he watched them all back.
“As tough as it was, it was Thrones, man. It was Thrones! It was everything Thrones should have been,” he enthused.
Of course, while Kit seems pretty pleased with the way things turned out on Game Of Thrones, not everyone involved with the show can say the same thing.
After a petition was put together by certain fans, urging producers to re-do the whole final series, several cast members also admitted that they wished things on the show had turned out differently.
This included Lena Headey, who revealed she was “gutted” about how her character met her demise, while Natalia Tena recently admitted to “ranting for hours” after watching the finale.
