Along with the Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 new photos, Tech Insider noted Helen Sloan’s first-hand experiences as the principal set photographer for almost 10 years.
She said that with the series’ “Battle of the Bastards,” there is no other episodes comparable with the level of fierce yet stunning scenes packed in the fight.
“You can’t explain what it’s like to work on sets like that because there’s just so many things going on at once,” she cited.
She added there were 600 crew members and 500 extras in the set spending time for more than three weeks of filming in the secluded valley of Northern Ireland tirelessly.
Sloan felt and documented first-hand the kind of intense spirit these actors did for the episode. The “Battle of the Bastards” itself is considered one of the greatest fights in “Game of Thrones” history.
“No one’s ever going to get hurt because the safety elements is so high… but [the stuntmen] have done a hundred sword fights and I’ve done none, so my fear is still very real,” she added.
“You’re right in the middle of it, you can hear the woosh of the swords … it’s that good fear, like a roller coaster. Because it’s maybe a minute and a half of ‘Whoaaaa’ and then ‘Woo, okay nice.’ and then you look through the photos and you think ‘Whoa that’s awesome,” Sloan continued.
On capturing mesmerizing scenes like the ones recently uploaded, Sloan revealed it’s tough to capture scenes like them. She needed enough courage to get “dirty” literally from the mud on the ground.
Meanwhile, the reason behind Jon Snow’s direwolf missing is unveiled. According to the same source, actor Liam Cunningham said that it’d be much preferable to have ghost with Davos than with Jon.
“Yeah that would have been cool, [but] obviously a big battle like that is no place for a direwolf. They’re not gonna last very long – I mean look at what happened to Wun Wun, the last of the giants,” Cunningham explained.
“Battle of the Bastards” director Miguel Sapochnik said the wolf was originally planned, but because it’d be time consuming and expensive, they decided not to bring the character to life.
“Ultimately we had to choose between Wun-Wun and the direwolf, so the dog bit the dust,” “Battle of the Bastards” director Miguel Sapochnik added.
