Game of Thrones is the one of the series that dominating the internet always, We will talk about the “The Battle of Ice and Fire” which is shaking the fans to the core. The final fight in the Great War immediately had people talking, starting with memes and ending in heated debates, whether the last (spoilers ahead!) blow was a satisfying conclusion or a missed opportunity. While on one side of the field we had an 8-seasons-worth line-up of everyone’s favorites, including the beloved House Stark and even a dragon or two, the other side had one of the most terrifying villains to ever exist on television. The terrible, fire-immune ice king had a massive army of zombies that could only be killed with fire, dragon-glass and Valyrian steel, so any conventional weapons were basically useless against the Great Foe.
And while the assassin who prepared for years proved to be his undoing, the Night King still left his mark. Not only did he take away some of the show’s most notable characters, he also left an ever-lasting chill in the hearts of all who watched him. Luckily, the great villain was sadistic and cold-hearted only on the show and the man portraying him doesn’t have millions of undead followers.

Furdik made his mark on television, as well as the big screens, working on such projects as 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and 2012’s Skyfall. He tried his skills out not only as a stuntman but as an actor as Andrzej in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and as one of the four ship guardians in Prometheus. Although his big role as the Night King had no dialogue, the villain’s presence and mannerisms alone were enough to strike fear not only into the hearts of the characters, but also people on the other side of the screen.
Story of Knight King | Background
The Night King was the master and the first of the White Walkers, having existed since the age of the First Men. He was also the supreme leader of the army of the dead.
The Night King possessed a number of supernatural powers or abilities. The Night King was a First Man who was captured by a tribe of the Children of the Forest. Leaf, who was among the group, pressed a dragonglass dagger into his chest, causing his eyes to turn blue and turning him into the first of the White Walkers. Thousands of years later, Leaf tells Bran Stark that her people created the White Walkers to defend themselves when Westeros was invaded by the First Men, who were cutting their sacred trees down and slaughtering the Children of the Forest. However, the White Walkers soon turned on their creators and began what was known as the Long Night. Though the Long Night ended upon the First Men and Children’s victory in the War for the Dawn, the Night King survived and retreated with the rest of his forces to the Lands of Always Winter, where they hid as they faded into legend and obscurity.
