We have been amazed by the otherworldly looking mythical creatures in The Games of Thrones, we have been scared, astonished and rendered speechless… but have you never wondered what do they look like in real?
Tons of spoilers ahead folks, so read at your risk as here are 10 mythical creatures who hardly resemble the actors who play them:
Leaf – Kae Alexander
One of the gruesomest mythical creatures, the leader of the Children of the Forest, Leaf and her kin are known to exist even before the events in the series.
Maybe it is punishment for creating the White Walkers, the makeup takes record time- 10 hours! A “full body prosthetic” is applied to her. Imagine her patience level *sigh*
Ross Mullan – White Walker
When Ross was asked what it felt like to play a White Walker he said, “Body language, arm and leg movements, the way you tilt your head or move it back and forward. It all comes together to tell a story, like a dance.” Yeah, right. Well I have never heard a more poetic description of a monster who can freeze you with one touch **goosebumps**
Night’s King – Richard Brake
The leader of the White Walkers, the Night King has been played by Richard Brake.
Though Richard Brake as the Night’s King has not many dialogues to deliver, the seven-hour makeup schedule more or less equals the hard work.
