If you think they’re scary on screen, just imagine facing one of the Game of Thrones White Walkers in person. A bunch of commuters at London’s King’s Cross and Waterloo Station came face to face with a few of them, and shared the photos on Instagram as proof.
While viewers in the states saw the premiere last night, episode one is set to air in the U.K. on Sky Atlantic tonight, which probably explains the Walkers’ presence. While many of them simply stared at the bewildered crowd, others decided to pose for photos with the commuters. Really, we’re just surprised that people wanted to get even closer to the White Walkers than they had to.
“I had a valerian steel sword and took him out after we had done this selfie,” one commuter named Frankie said.
Still, this video that was shared is nightmare-inducing.
And this pose makes us wonder if the actors might have actually been extras on the show. It’s just too good.
For those unfamiliar with Game of Thrones, White Walkers are scary undead creatures dressed in armor who are unstoppable — unless you have dragonglass or Valyrian steel. Stronger than humans, they might be the most bone-chilling presence in George R.R. Martin’s series.
The White Walkers of London definitely aren’t afraid to get in people’s faces.
But really, this is probably the closest they’ll ever get to a smile.
We can’t even imagine what it’d be like riding on the Tube with them.
Luckily, they don’t seem too annoyed by the large quantity of iPhones that they’ve come across this morning.
