New Delhi:

HBO just took fans behind the making of the real-life Army of the Dead for the Game of Thrones 8 and yes, we are in for the treat. The exclusive behind-the-scenes promo gives us the boarder insight into the amount of hard work and details they give to bring the characters to life, and with that, those who have been complaining about the long wait wouldn’t mind waiting any longer.

Barrie Gowers, who has engraved his hands on the massive project since season one in 2011 with the makeup and prosthetics stated, “It’s lovely to see all our hard work and all these things we’ve built actually make it to the screen as well, at the end of the day.”

Barrie also added about the long working hours to give the perfected works for characters like the Night King, Children of the Forest, Jorah Mormont and his greyscale curse, “Just an average prosthetic makeup we usually say is about 4 to 6 weeks to build. We have so many patient actors who sit in our chairs for like four or six or eight hours at a time. So, by the time we usually step up on set to do a rehearsal, we’ve already pretty much done a full day’s. So to then film and have our fun on set making sure everything’s not falling off people for 12 hours.”

After the clip of the ‘behind the scenes’ Inside Game of Thrones:A Story in Prosthetics was shared by HBO, netzines wasted no time to show their appreciation for the hard work filmmakers have dedicated their work into in a cinematic world where anything can be changed into anything with the help of visual effects or CGI’s.

Applauding the work, one user wrote, ‘’All these people working hard for our entertainment. I feel important’’, while another wrote, ‘’There will never be anything quite as magnificent as got on television ever again’’.

Love it or hate the show, one cannot deny the magic in the hands of the artistes.
