Game of Thrones season 8 is pretty far but that doesn’t mean fans won’t talk about it. And it looks like fans are not the only one talking. After slipping accidentally that Game of Thrones won’t air till 2019, the actress who plays Sansa Stark in the show had an interview with the The Hollywood Reporter, where she talked about the final season of the show.
She said “All of us have always had discussions about theories about what we think is going to happen—who’s going to die, who’s going to end up ruling. Now, we know. It almost feels like another one of our theories. It doesn’t even feel like it’s what’s actually happening. It’s very satisfying.”
She went on to describe the reaction of the cast after they read the season 8 script. She said:
It was very, very bittersweet. The first day of the actors coming in and that kind of production starting, the day where we had the final read-through for the final script, it was really bittersweet. It was hard. At the end of the very last script, they read aloud, “End of Game of Thrones.” As soon as they read that out, pretty much everyone burst into tears. There was a standing ovation for [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss]. We were all clapping and cheering. It was amazing. It was the first time every single castmember had been there and sat through all of the scripts for season eight — obviously not castmembers who had died in the earlier seasons, but …
When asked about how she felt after reading the season8 script, she said :
I’m getting goosebumps now thinking about it. It was a shock to the system. We actually realized, reading that “end of Game of Thrones“ line, that that was it. When you’re in it, you don’t really see an end point. It’s just an ongoing thing you’re living with. It was a real shock. It was really sad, but there was an immense amount of pride, too. We realized we had done it. We had created this amazing thing, and that’s it now. It was just a feeling of pride. I was proud of David and Dan, and I was looking around at all of the other castmembers around the table, nodding at them, and saying: “Well done. We’ve done it.” It was the craziest feeling. It’s the biggest project we’ll ever do. We’ve put our hearts and souls into it. Saying goodbye to it means putting parts of our hearts and souls behind. But we also know we’ve given it everything that we’ve got.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited for the last season to air. But waiting’s the hardest part. Guess we’ll just have to wait.
