'Game of Thrones' actors reportedly collapsed while filming upcoming battle

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Thrones team broke down their literal breakdown from the three-month shoot that will become the battle of Winterfell - the show's most ambitious yet, known internally as "The Long Night".

When the screen fades to black after the season 8 finale, I imagine a lot of us will feel the same way...although obviously Headey's emotions are more acute.

The actor who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, Iain Glen, said filming the battle was the "most unpleasant experience I've had on Thrones". "You get to sleep at seven in the morning and when you wake in the midday you're still so spent you can't really do anything, and then you're back", he added.

We know a big battle with wights at Winterfell is nigh and that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) are going to come into the thing as more than just allies. David and Dan [wrote] an awesome puzzle and Miguel came in and took it apart and put it together again. (At one point, it's Sam's story, who had to be told to look like badass.) Sapochnik also watched other memorable battle scenes before shooting the episode, including the Helm's Deep siege in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, to find one longer than whatever Thrones is cooking up.

Logano Scores First Win Of Season
Nine different drivers shared the lead with Harvick up front the longest (88). 1 time for 5 laps; Austin Dillon 1 time for 2 laps. After Harvick pitted, Logano inherited the lead until he did the same on lap 50, leading to Daniel Suárez enjoying time in first.

Unfortunately, one Game of Thrones star said filming the final battle was "really miserable". To prepare, Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya, had to begin training one year before filming began Williams told Entertainment Weekly, "I skip the battle every year, which is freaky since Arya's the one who's been training the most". "This is my first taste of it". I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, 'I've had enough now. "It's night after night, and again and again, and it just doesn't stop", she said. Details are being kept tightly under lock and key but from what we've heard, bigger budgets have led to more epic set pieces and apparently, the final battle in particular is going to be something truly astonishing.

Bring snacks. Just.maybe ones you'd still want to eat while watching beloved characters get butchered by the undead for an hour. Now we know why he said that the shoot was for "something that's never been done before". You better believe I will be writing about it on here, and we will see what fans think of their finale. There is no version where everybody says, "I have to admit, I agree with every other person on the planet that this is the ideal way to do this" - that's an impossible reality that doesn't exist.

Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c. "I'm hoping for the Breaking Bad [finale] argument where it's like, 'Is that an A or an A+?'" Weiss explained.
