Game of Thrones’ Richard Brake's co-stars couldn’t recognize him without the Night King make-up

When it comes to costume design and VFX scenes, no show even comes close to HBO’s Game of Thrones. The on-point casting, gruesome battle scenes and amazing storyline won the show record number of Emmy Awards. The amount of hard work that goes into making prosthetics is evident from the detailing on each character. The show once released a behind-the-scene promo showcasing the hard work of makeup artists. They were so good that Richard Brake’s co-stars didn’t even know it was him under the Night King get-up.

Brake told Digital Spy, “I was covered in prosthetics – massive fingernails; false teeth; literally the biggest contacts you could put in a human eye – they were agonising. So obviously the last thing I really felt like doing was sitting around and having chitchats between takes. I would just stay very quiet.”

He continued, “On one of the first nights we were shooting ‘Hardhome’, everyone was gathering in Belfast to eat, all the actors. I showed up a little late, of course, because it takes two hours to get the make-up off. And then I sat down, and, of course, Kit and everybody went, ‘Who the hell is this guy?’ They thought I was a homeless man on the street that just popped in to have a free meal. I said, ‘No, no. I’m the Night King. I was the guy who was chasing you off the pier all day’.”

Game of Thrones’ Diana Rigg's son-in-law reveals her computer’s X-Rated Password!

The year 2020 was a Red Wedding year for all of humanity. The earth lost one of its brightest stars, Diana Rigg, not too long ago. Her warm light still shines upon our memories serving as an inspiration. Diana was famous for her witty and fun-loving nature. In a recent interview with, The Daily Star, Her son-in-law, Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, talked about her brilliant sense of humour.

He revealed Dame Diana Rigg used an X-rated log-in for her computer. He said the late Game of Thrones star’s password was simply: “F*** off.”

Guy, who is married to Dame Diana’s daughter Rachael, said they made the discovery when they used the same IT expert. He recalled: “He said, “I was sorry to hear about Diana.” He said that he’d been round and said, “I need your password, is that OK?”

“And she just went, “I’ve forgotten it.” So he made visible her last attempts to show the password and it said ‘F*** off’.”

“He said, “Oh right is this it, all one case?” And she went, “You’re right, there’s a capital F.” He changed it and her Sainsbury’s account opened – and there were three bottles of Prosecco. And she said, “I like Prosecco.” That was her order.”

Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbaek would scream while filming boat scenes before hearing the word ‘Action’

The Iron Anniversary month is coming to an end. Fans relived their favourite moments from the fantasy epic during the Marathrone held during the celebrations. A decade of Game of Thrones brought back sweet memories from behind the screen, and several cast members were happy to share. One of the show’s extras, Andrew McClay, played a number of soldiers throughout the series. He shared firsthand accounts of various funny moments that happened on set, one of them involving actor Pilou Asbaek.

Pilou Asbaek is best known for playing Euron Greyjoy on Game of Thrones. McClay recalled a funny incident about him in an interview with the Irish Mirror, “There was another great moment when we arrived at the Linen Mill Studios in Down. We were shooting inside the studio on the boat. It was the big naval battle sequence between Yara, Theon and Euron. I arrive and see Pilou (Euron Greyjoy) standing up at the front of the boat and he’s screaming for about 30 seconds before we even hear the word ‘action!’

We were all watching him and he’s just up there going crazy! Then when you see him walking around the studio in normal clothes, he’s still a wild man but he’s got a handshake and a smile for everyone. He’s just a man that loves having fun and he’s such a lovely guy.”

Game of Thrones’ Iain Glen used to shout Khaleesi to entertain freezing extras

Game of Thrones was a beautiful and memorable experience for both the crew and the fans alike. For some, it was the best time of their lives. There are many behind-the-screen secrets that fans are unaware of. Some of them are really fun. Game of Thrones extras know a lot about them, however, there’s one who’s basically a Game of Thrones encyclopedia. Andrew McClay’s vast amount of knowledge rivals that of Varys and Littlefinger. And he has some of the most interesting stories to tell.

Andrew revealed lots of secrets to the Irish Mirror in a recent interview. He was thrilled to see Stephen Dillane (Stannis) and Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder) meticulously rehearsing a scene, getting things right to a tee. On one occasion, Iain Glen entertained a bunch of extras at Wolf Hill Quarry by shouting ‘Khaleessssssssi‘ at the top of his lungs.

He also revealed Rory McCann (The Hound) has a history of looking after chickens in real life as well. He was dumbfounded when Bella Ramsay (Lyanna Mormont) was the only actor to never stumble over her lines during the famous ‘King in the North’ scene.

Andrew McClay got to witness his favourite novel come to life, being a part of it. He considers himself one of the luckiest people who had the chance to live their dreams.
