David Nutter, the director of the epic Red Wedding scene, where Rob and Talisa Stark have been killed. David was asked if there will be more of these scenes, he replied: “The short answer is – yes!”
In an interview with Metro, David said he and the rest of his co-workers put lots of effort in the new season and even saying that some scenes were hard to film and ‘exhausting’.
Nutter said: “I can’t say that it’s more draining or less draining to be the director of the episode, but I will say that we’re all in the same boat, actors and director, when it comes to really bringing our ‘A game’ to the fore. Battle scenes are just incredibly exhausting for all concerned. Having said that, they are, at the same time, sometimes tedious – because there’s so much minute detail to deal with, from both an acting and directing standpoint. Horses, armaments, special effects are all vying for our attention and energy, in a lot of cases, and it’s true that it’s exhausting trying to lasso all of these elements into a coherent whole.”
Dan Weiss, Game of Thrones showrunner, said to Entertainment Weekly: “We want people to love it. It matters a lot to us. We’ve spent 11 years doing this. We also know no matter what we do, even if it’s the optimal version, that a certain number of people will hate the best of all possible versions. “There is no version where everybody says, ‘I have to admit, I agree with every other person on the planet that this is the perfect way to do this’ – that’s an impossible reality that doesn’t exist.”
