Actors Who Were Injured Filming Game Of Thrones SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rREdMMfZT4 : With so many moving parts and such high standards to uphold, it’s always possible that something is going to go wrong on the set of Game of Thrones. Throughout the show’s eight seasons, a number of performers have suffered for their art. Here’s how.
Sandor Clegane is so fearsome that the character earned one of the coolest nicknames in all of Game of Thrones: “The Hound.” He’s survived trial by combat, a massacre by the Freys, and being thrown off a cliff by Brienne of Tarth. The actor who portrays Clegane, Rory McCann, got a bit battered, too.
The seventh season episode “Beyond the Wall” finds the Hound and others waging war against the Night King and his forces. Clegane has to carry a wight through much of the trek, forcing McCann to dash here and there, sometimes across real ice, while the actor playing the undead creature twisted and tumbled on his shoulders. It all left McCann with such intense pain that he sat for an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald while holding an ice pack to his leg. McCann told the paper,
“I had this guy on my shoulder for days and days. It didn’t work with a dummy so I had to carry a real guy and we had to run and run.”
