Stranger Things and Game of Thrones might be two entirely different shows, but one element in the HBO series inspired another in the Netflix one.
Barrie Gower, designer of Stranger Things season 4 villain Vecna, revealed how the character’s look was created. he told the CinemaBlend who was hired for the Netflix show because the show’s creators liked the work he did on the Night King and Chernobyl.
“The Duffers saw our work on Game of Thrones, and they really loved the Night King. They also loved our work on the HBO series Chernobyl with all the radiation burns, and I think they almost wanted a combination of the two, in a way. Realizing that they needed to design a character – a new villain, a new presence for Stranger Things 4, who would be a pretty iconic villain – being fans of the Night King on Game of Thrones, I think they were thinking, ‘Well, why not? ? Let’s address the guys who made the Night King.’ I think that’s how we got the show, so we were really lucky for that,” said Gower.
“I think it’s also natural that many of our artists who worked on Game of Thrones also worked on Vecna. So there are probably traces of their design skills and their approaches and just their styles in sculpture and styles in painting that you can probably see references between the Night King and Vecna in a way because it was designed and created by the same people. So I think that’s probably why there’s a relationship between the two,” the designer continued.
Stranger Things 4 is not over yet
After three years of waiting, Netflix finally released the fourth season of Stranger Things in its catalog, but the novelty was divided into two parts, called volumes by streaming.
So, in addition to the seven episodes already released, two more will arrive on Netflix on July 1st, ending this season and officially marking the beginning of the end of the series, as the next season of Stranger Things, the fifth, will also be the last of the program.
But in the meantime, remember the synopsis of Stranger Things 4:
“It has been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. After the confrontation, our group of friends is separated for the first time, and having to deal with the complexities of high school makes it even more difficult. In this moment of fragility, a new supernatural threat emerges and brings a mystery that, if solved, could end the terrible Upside Down once and for all.”
Stranger Things 4, volume two, comes to Netflix on July 1st.
