Game of Thrones is finally coming to an end with the final season airing in April 2019 and we’ve all been waiting for the first episode to air. As the time comes closer more teasers, images, and interviews start surfacing on the internet but this isn’t enough to ease the cravings for Season 8 whose trailer would soon drop – HBO’s #ForTheThrone campaign is the biggest proof! Recently, director David Nutter, who is directing three episodes this season appeared in an interview on the Huffington Post.
Previously, Nutter also addressed the Game of Thrones fans via Reddit where he each episode of the new season to be over one hour long. But, in this interview, he talks about the Game of Thrones security, fake scenes shot for this season, premiere episodes, and the ending.
Nutter had been missing from the series for complete two seasons (6 and 7) and now he returns for the final season again. Upon being asked what it was like to him, he replied:
“After 2015, after the fifth season, I had a couple back surgeries and I missed Season 6 and 7. And it broke my heart to do so. You go through physical therapy and all the things you go through for back surgery. There are times when I’d be in excruciating physical therapy sessions, and I’d be wondering if I’d ever have a chance to direct again ― let alone direct “Game of Thrones.”
Fortunately, I came back. I was all repaired. They welcomed me back with open arms, and not only welcomed me back with open arms but welcomed me back to actually have me involved in and direct three of the six episodes [of Season 8].”
The revelation of Jon Snow A.K.A. Aegon Targaryen’s heritage is a big game changer for the upcoming season, which was revealed while Nutter was totally absent from the series. On directing this in the new season he says,
“I’m just so honoured to be involved in the material because it’s so wonderfully written. It’s so wonderfully performed. It’s so tremendously executed. Just to be a part of that world is a dream come true… [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] are wonderful to work with. They’re such great collaborators as well as teachers and mentors. In many respects for me, it’s just getting a chance to be involved in what they’re doing.”
I remember Kit Harington talking about filming a few fake scenes last season on Jimmy Kimmel Live. David Nutter reveals the same scenario even this season by saying they need to maintain some amount of secrecy seeing paparazzi and seeing drone cameras hovering around. He reveals,
“Well, sometimes there were paparazzi in amazing places ― on construction cranes and all kinds of crazy places, to try to get a point of view of things. They were all over, everywhere, trying to get in on what was happening. But it was definitely a situation where there was no paper on the set, [that] type of thing.”
“[The production team] wanted to make sure nobody knew what was happening, and they went to the nth degree as they do on the show in general. They basically take it to the point where it’s like the Gestapo. It’s tough to get answers.”
Finally talking about his take and what he can tell us about the ending of Game of Thrones, Nutter revealed:
“All I know is that David and Dan spent a lot of time to tell the story in a proper fashion, and the audience will be completely satisfied. Not everybody will be satisfied, but I feel the audience will be satisfied with the direction the series goes. It lives up to all the building it’s coming to, I promise you that.”
