“Put it this way: I never, ever want to do that again,” laughs director Miguel Sapochnik. He’s referring to the 11 weeks of night shoots that had a massive cast, a huge number of extras and stunt people, massive sets, a tonne of make up and prop work, and so. much. more working in unison to deliver epic television. It was a logistical nightmare, but oh-so worth it.
