Here’s what the night king from Game Of Thrones looks like in real life

*** WARNING, WARNING, F***EN SPOILERS BELOW AY ***

So, the f**ken Night King is pretty much a done and dusted part of the Game of Thrones story, and thank f**k for that. Not because he wasn’t a bloody relentless villain – he was – but because for a while there, it really seemed like he might be about to bring eternal winter to the Seven Kingdoms. While it would have been a joy to see Cersei get her s**t f**ked up, no one really wanted to see Jon and the Stark’s cop it. Anyway, it might surprise you to know the Night King’s not a CGI villain and is, in fact, played by Vladimir Furdik.

Before this role, Furdik’s been best known as a stuntman with roles in Thor: The Dark World and Skyfall. He also had a role in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and in Prometheus. Nevertheless, it’s bound to be this stint as the menacing Night King that cements him in the upper echelons of great television villains.

Despite that, Furdik actually seems like a pretty chilled guy if you check out his Instagram. It shows him getting intimate with a horse, hanging out with other Game of Thrones cast-members and in the middle of what’s no doubt an epic cosmetic session as he prepares for a day of raising the undead and bringing winter south of the wall.

What’s probably most impressive, though, is the dude’s sword-fighting warm-up. While we’re sure someone will correct us when we say he looks like a mad swordsman, we’re going to assume that he’s at least better than the dude who chopped his mate’s nose off at a party. Have a look at him swinging two bloody swords and making like a proper D&D character rolling critical hits on that D20.

F**k yes, Vladimir. F**k yes!

Final thought: We’re not gonna bulls**t you, we totally get it if you thought the Night King was a CGI character. At times, Furdik’s portrayal nailed the b**tard’s inhuman movements while still giving him enough of a personality to make him both terrifying and hateful.
