One of Andy’s most excellent moments in the documentary comes when he clarifies that at the end of filming each season, the extras are given memorial jackets. For season 8, he was given a Stark jacket featuring a direwolf, and the words “The King In The North” down the sleeve.

Andy loves Jon Snow so much that he gave his jacket to Kit. “He’s now trying to give me money for it,” Andy said. “But I won’t take no money for it. I just wanted to give Jon Snow his jacket, big time.

Showing how much the television series has influenced his life; Andy got emotional at the end of shooting his final scene in King’s Landing, and said: “I’m choking up here, man. Even though I’m just an extra… Game Of Thrones has really changed my life.
