Many Game of Thrones fans have been patiently waiting for the battle between the Red Viper and the Mountain ever since the episode title was announced earlier this year and on Sunday night, fans everwhere will finally get to see this battle unfold. In an interview with TV Guide, Pedro Pascal, who plays Oberyn Martell, described preparing for the fight:
"He's nearly a foot taller than me. He's 6-foot-9; I'm 5-foot-11, I think he's nearly three times my weight. He's 420 pounds of muscle. It felt like I was with a giant. And then put him in the armor, and his sword alone was exactly my height. It was incredibly intimidating but also really delightful because I think that the character Oberyn really relishes that kind of challenge."
He also reassured fans that they won't be disappointed with the episode: “I would say that fans of the books who are fans of the show have never been dissatisfied over any of the major events and I can assure you they will not be disappointed for this one.”
