John Bradley explains why working on Moonfall was tougher than Game of Thrones




Game of Thrones was a life-changing experience for both the fans and the cast of the show. Many of the stars have moved onto new projects ever since the show wrapped up filming. John Bradley, who played the affable Samwell Tarly on the acclaimed TV series, and recently appeared in Lionsgate’s space epic Moonfall.

The film is based on a fictional extinction-level scenario, and Bradley’s character is tasked to be the brains of the group trying to save humanity. However, the daunting task has taken a toll on Bradley, and he considers the icy days on the set of Game of Thrones to have been easier to work on. In a recent interview with Looper, Bradley referred to a particular scene in the film when the group is trapped in a flooded hotel. He said:

“It was fun and it looks cool in the movie. But I won’t want to do it too often because I swallowed a gargantuan amount of filthy water that day and I don’t want to repeat that anytime soon. The main difference between that kind of environment in ‘Moonfall’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ is that in ‘Game of Thrones,’ I had the clothes to deal with it.”

“We were in the cold for a long time, but we all had … I had a thick leather tunic, I had an animal pelt, I had a cloak on that was actually an Ikea rug that weighed probably about 50 pounds that I had strapped on my back for 10 years. You didn’t necessarily feel the cold. It was uncomfortable, but you didn’t feel the cold. On Moonfall, I had to be swishing around in freezing cold water all day in just a little T-shirt and a hoodie and a pair of jeans,” he continues. “So they were both unpleasant, but I would say that sartorially, I was slightly more suited to it in ‘Game of Thrones’ than ‘Moonfall,’ for sure.”
