In other Thrones news, Night King actor Vladimir Furdik did a rare interview with EW to tease fans about his character's final arc on the HBO smash. 

 

"People will see he has a target he wants to kill, and you will find out who that is," Furdik said. 

"There’s also that moment [in “Hardhome”] when Jon Snow was on the boat and the Night King looked at him and raised his arms — there’s a similar and even stronger moment between Jon and the Night King this time."

 

Thrones author George RR Martin, meanwhile, confirmed that the final books may feature "important discrepancies" from the last six episodes. 

"I haven't read the [final-season] scripts and haven't been able to visit the set because I've been working on Winds," Martin said. 

"I know some of the things. But there's a lot of minor-character [arcs] they'll be coming up with on their own. And, of course, they passed me several years ago. There may be important discrepancies."

 

 

On casting, the show's prequel in development has added Miranda Richardson to join the ensemble cast in an undisclosed role.
