In the video above, Beioff, Weiss, "Stormborn" director Mark Mylod, Whelan, and Pilou Asbæk ("Euron Greyjoy") -- who isn't always growling, believe it or not -- walk Thrones devotees through the complicated process of building a scene like Silence's high-seas raid on the Grey joy fleet. "That was a fucking awesome week," Asbæk declares. Looks that way in the behind-the-scenes footage, too.
A few highlights: designers on the series describe how they went about building Euron's Silence, a ship that Benioff says is "supposed to intimidate and strike fear in the hearts of his enemies," or as Weiss puts it, is a "big 'fuck you' boat built by a big 'fuck you' guy."
The Thrones production team actually built Yara's ship and the portion of Silence that rams it from the side. While we see two behemoth vessels connected by Euron's dragon-head corvus -- which, with a winch and a shit ton of wood, was built practically -- the entire scene was actually staged in a car park in Northern Ireland. Movie magic... brought to the small screen.
