Game of Thrones director, David Nutter, explained the indifference of John Snow to his direwolf, HuffPost reported.
“Jon and Ghost definitely had a moment, but didn’t the direwolf just lose an ear fighting the army of the dead for the King in the North? Should it have been more?
The scene left fans wondering one thing: Why didn’t Jon just pet Ghost?” The source noted.
According to the director, “since the direwolves are kind of CG creations, we felt it best to keep it as simple as possible. And I think that it played out much more powerfully that way.”
Game of Thrones visual effects supervisor Joe Bauer explained the difficulties of bringing the direwolves to life ahead of Season 8, saying real wolves need to be filmed and scaled up. And unfortunately, those wolves “only behave in certain ways.”
“Keeping Ghost off to the side, I thought that played out better,” said Nutter, adding that it gave Jon a chance to be with Tormund and Gilly before having one last moment with his wolf.
