The Night King actor has something to say about Game Of Thrones ending
Game of Thrones actor Richard Brake has said he prefers the show ended with The Night King killing everyone.
Brake, who played the show’s enemy until season six when a scheduling conflict meant the part had to be recast,
explained that he was still happy, however, with the way Game of Thrones ended for his character.
“I wanted him to wipe everyone out, I was hoping for that,” Brake told NME.
“But you can’t always get what you want!”
“But I admire the fact that Arya killed him.
That was to me one highlight of that season.
“And for the entire series, the way they built up her character from this petty girl who watches her father get murdered,
into this extraordinary assassin, who saves the world.
To me, that was the most genius thing of the entire series.”

Brake said he was “totally satisfied with how the Night King ended.”
In terms of the series finale, he added,
“I felt before this season that there would always be a backlash.
People are always sad when something ends.”
“Especially Game of Thrones, everyone had their ideas on how it would end,
with all the theories banging about for a couple of years it took to make that final season.
“I sensed there would be a portion of people who would feel disappointed
no matter what they did, but I honestly thought it was great.”
Brake is currently starring as Merlin in the new fantasy epic Arthur & Merlin:
Knights of Camelot, out this week.
Speaking about the new role, Brake said he didn’t watch any other versions of the classic wizard to prepare.
“I didn’t even have the time, but I probably wouldn’t have because it would
have filled my head with greater anxiety about playing such an iconic character,” he explained.
“There’s been some wonderful actors who have
played Merlin over the years.”
