Vladimir Furdik plays the Night King on Game of Thrones and the actor looks NOTHING like his terrifying on-screen persona.
Who plays the Night King on Game of Thrones? Vladimir Furdik is behind the absolutely terrifying figure at the heart of Game of Thrones.
Winter has finally arrived for Game of Thrones fans and the Night King is sure to wreak havoc on everything we love and hold dear. As you contemplate the future of the Starks and everyone else currently waiting to discover their fate behind the walls of Winterfell castle, you might find yourself wondering what the actor who plays the Night King actually looks like.
Vladimir Furdik plays the Night King on Game of Thrones but he definitely doesn't look like the Night King in real life.
According to The Richest, 48-year-old Furdik is from Slovakia.
In Game of Thrones, the Night King cuts quite an intimidating figure. He's a White Walker so his eyes are an unnatural blue colour and he's rather bumpy in the face. Before Furdik played the Night King on Game of Thrones, Richard Brake held the role from 2014-2016.
On his Instagram, Vladimir Furdik shares behind the scenes photos of himself in prosthetics and lots of photos of himself in real life. Guys, I am here to tell you that the Night King is handsome.
According to some of his BTS videos and photos, the prosthetics he wears as the Night King take a long time to apply. In one video he suggests that he has "another 5 hours ahead of" him in prosthetics, despite already being many steps into the process.
According to IMDb, Vladimir Furdik has worked primarily as a stunt performer and coordinator since 1990. He has performed stunts in films like Skyfall, The Huntsman: Winter's War, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and more.
