When Game of Thrones Season 8 start to air on April 14, fans will be anticipating more epic battles than what the previous season had offered.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Epic Final Battle

The final battle of the last season of Game of Thrones took place in Ireland. The casts, crew and production team spent filming the epic battle 55 nights straight. They had to endure extreme weather conditions to get this done for all of you Game of Thrones fans.

Assistant Director Jonathan Quinlan thanked the show’s producer and crew for going to great lengths for the series. He also posted a thank you note that reads :

“This is for the Night Dragons. For enduring 55 straight nights. For enduring the cold, the rain, the snow, the mud, the sheep shit of Toome and the winds of Magheramorne. When tens of millions of people around the world watch this episode a year from now, they won’t know how hard you worked. They won’t care how tired you were or how tough it was to do your job in sub-freezing temperatures. They’ll just understand that they’re watching something that’s never been done before. And that’s because of you.”

Jonathan Quinlan’s Thank You Note

The previous epic battle “Battle of the Bastards” from Game of Thrones Season 6 took 25 days to shoot. That’s half of the time they spent shooting this season’s last epic battle. The episode said to have 600 crew members, over 70 horses, 500 extras and a large budget summing up to $100,000,000 to film. We cannot wait how this battle will be.
