Sean Bean has opened up about his character’s iconic death scene in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Her character Lord Eddard Stark, affectionately called Ned, was the staple husband of House Stark and the first character to pen his head in the first season.
Bean, who has a reputation for dying on TV shows and films, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he revealed what was going through his head during the filming of the scene. He said, “It was horror and disbelief – Joffre changed his mind (about putting Ned out) – and then resigned and (realizing that he) was seeing his daughter Arya for the last time. I was all four.” Trying to think about (things). It wasn’t just, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to cut off my head.’ The mixture of emotions makes up what it was, I think. “
He said, “It took a full day to complete, so all you have to do is focus on where you’re talking about your death. I was very hot at the time, which probably helped. And everyone The reactions were fantastic – Cersei and the kids. It was going on in that scene with lots of pathos. Then I put my head in the block and I was finished for the day. “
Ned’s death was only one of the biggest shocking major character deaths for which Game of Thrones became known. Subsequently, it was rare for a TV show to kill its main character in such an unexpected way. But soon after, it became a staple for GoT.
One of the most popular TV shows, Game of Thrones, based on George RR Martin’s fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, ended its eighth season in 2019.
