Game of Thrones-season 8 : the behind the scenes of the ride to the dragons revealed and… this is ridiculous
On the occasion of episode 1 of season 8 of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow has had the right to a ballad on the back of dragons. Stylish ? The screen, yes, but this was not really the case on the shooting, as revealed by Kit Harington in a making-of ! Attention spoilers.
That has not vibrated in front of the incredible sequence of episode 1 of season 8 of Game of Thrones, which saw Jon Snow fly for the first time solo on the back of a dragon ? Despite the clumsiness of the hero in the beginning, the series has provided us with a scene of flight bluffing with the aid of special effects, successful, beautiful scenery and staging controlled and inventive.
Behind-the-scenes… ridiculous and painful
However, what you don’t know, is that behind the scenes of this scene is far less sexy and epic. In a video unveiled by HBO. (see our slide show from 14:00), one discovers there, in fact the actual conditions (and ridiculous) for the filming. The program ? Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington were in fact playing on the robotic machines, pretending to be impressed by their escape, all in front of the green funds and fans the giants. What to do to pass the contest of “rodeo mechanical” for an activity styled.
But this is not all, where Jon Snow appeared as a hero badass and cool at the screen, Kit Harington was living the worst moment of her life on the plateaus. The reason for this ? He thought that he was saying goodbye to his progeny. Always in the video, the actor unveiled with humor : “The dragon was shaking violently and my right testicles is stuck. I had not the time to say ‘STOP’ and I was balanced on all sides. In my head I was thinking ‘This is how it ends, on this machine, shaken, and hung by my testicles“.
This is the karma. That will teach him to kill the respect by pretending to be disgusted after you kissed Emilia Clarke. Nope but oh !
