Now that Game of Thrones has wrapped, fans of the hit HBO drama are looking for the next best series – or even more Game of Thrones content to fill the void. And die-hard fans are in luck: Last night, HBO dropped The Last Watch, a new behind-the-scenes documentary that exposes what went into making the final season of the show. During director Jeanie Finlay’s two-hour film, viewers are privy to a table-read with the whole cast. Plus, we see exactly how the crew managed to keep the show’s final episodes from being leaked. Read on for five of the biggest moments.
Kit Harrington Gets Emotional
During a table-read, Kit Harrington finds out that Jon Snow is the one to murder Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and he covers his mouth with his hand in shock, his eyes watering. He then looks to Clarke, who simply nods knowingly.
The Script Was Top Secret
One of Game of Thrones’s biggest challenges was avoiding leaks or spoilers. The documentary showed how exactly they achieved that. One of the ways? After the scripts were read by the cast, they were instantly shredded. Actors later received digital copies to study their lines, but all paper trails were repeatedly destroyed.
In addition to the scripts being handled with top secrecy, the making-of video also showed how the drama used decoys to throw fans off during filming. During a shoot in Seville, Spain, for instance, when Bran is chosen as king, random cast members who were not actually in the scene were asked to be present, just to mislead the paparazzi and spectators.
The Night King’s Existential Crisis
Vladimir Furdik, the talented stuntman who played the Night King, gets some screen time sans make-up in the doc. In a particularly notable moment, he ponders whether he is an actor and truly part of the cast, or if he is just helping the other stars shine. “I prepare them to look good in front of the camera, and always, I was [the] shadow behind them,” he says. “Nobody saw me. Now I’m in the front line, so I’m like, ‘Wow, what am I doing here? Why me?'”
Daenerys’s Next-Level Wig
The prep that went into maintaining Daenerys’s perfect icy-blonde hair? Worth its own documentary alone. First, she dons a skullcap, which is painted her natural skin tone. Then, once her wig is in place, a member of the crew is assigned to make sure not a strand falls out of place. “That is still the most beautiful hair I will ever have on my head,” Clarke says in the makeup room at one point.
