On July 1, 2021, Dreymon shared an image of himself alongside East on Instagram. According to IMDb, East directs episodes nine and 10 of season 5. In the photo shared, Dreymon is dressed as Uhtred in his warrior attire with his sword on his back. His hair is back, and some of it hangs at his sides. He has what looks like blood on his face and head with his arms leaning on a railing with his hands together. By his side is East with a mask on wearing a long-sleeved shirt and bottoms. He has his hands laced together lying his arms on the railing.

Dreymon captioned the post: “A huge thank you to my dear friend,” in which he tags East’s account adding, “for guiding us through the last two episodes of TLK5. This last block was a beast for many reasons. We wouldn’t have made it without the countless nights and weekends he spent, meticulously planning every shot.”

Over 110,000 people liked the post, and over 2,000 people commented on it. Dreymon also tagged the official account for the series in the post as well. He also added a few hashtags in the comments, “#thelastkingdom #uhtred #director.”

Director Jon East commented on the post as well

East commented on the post thanking Dreymon, saying: “Thank you Alex, ❤️. Your own phenomenal dedication to your craft, the show, our wonderful colleagues and of course the audience for whom we strive is all the inspiration that this director needs. Love & respect, as always, Jx.”
