Zombie Polar Bear: Cast and Crew Reaction

Says Joe Bauer, VFX Supervisor, “You’re in a blizzard, your visibility is 10 feet. You’ve got something that’s out there that you don’t know where it’s gonna come from. It’s very much like a sharp knife.

Alan Taylor took this episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 as a challenge. This episode featured two special features, a zombie polar bear, and resurrection of Viserion

We felt like a real collaboration in building this sequence. It was the script, it was the effect and then it was my ideas. And also I’ve worked with a wonderful storyboard artist Richard who made the scene.”

 
Kit Harington (Jon Snow) shared his thoughts as well, “We did it in a big CGI box and they said to us at the start this is gonna be quite confusing because you won’t have any sense of direction and it was a bit weird.”
 
Indeed it must have been weird as there was no polar bear but a big guy wearing a green suit. Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane aka The Hound) says jokingly, “I’ve had people going off when I will come towards you I’m a bear, no you’re not. His name is Tofy. It was pretty weird, to be honest“.
 
This zombie polar bear was quite a beast. Hopefully, with the big whopping budget of Game of Thrones season 8, we will get to see our favorite direwolves, Ghost and Nymeria again. Got 8 filming is supposed to begin this month.
