A few of the stars of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones arrived in Israel on Tuesday.
Kristian Nairn, who plays the beloved character Hodor, and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays one of the most vilified characters in the series, the Mountain, arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.
While the two characters are both polarizing in the show, one being the sweetest character and the other being the meanest, they both visited the Jewish state - even though they fought for different sides on the show.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is currently underway on HBO, with only three episodes left, the drama is building to the brim.
The great Battle of Winterfell of the Great War was finally fought between the dead and the living, in an episode that garnered the same battle budget as the second Lord of the Rings movie.
The next three episodes will finally give long-time series fans the closure they have been asking for since 2011. Even though the writers have said the ending will be "bittersweet," the climax as well as the ending have been long awaited for by book-readers and show-watchers alike - considering the books were released in 1996, and the final two series of the book unpublished, both will witness the ending at the same time, unspoiled and unprecedented.
While these characters fates have already been sealed by the writer of the series, George RR. Martin, the Eurovision festivities are just starting to heat up, with the first episode set to air May 14 - unscripted, where anything can happen.
