Saying goodbye to Game of Thrones after Season 8 will be hard enough for fans of the hit HBO show but can you imagine what it must be like for the actors who have played these beloved roles for so many years?
For Kit Harington, playing Jon Snow means his 20s — he spent eight years playing this amazing role on Game of Thrones and it represents this particular time in his life. While Jon started off mostly at the Wall, he eventually traveled around Westeros and learned a great deal.
Harington did too as he talks about how nervous he was at the beginning and how incredible it was to work with Rose Leslie (Ygritte, whom he eventually married in real life). Check out what else he had to say.
Sophie Turner literally grew up before our eyes during her many years as Sansa on the show. In this look back, the actress talks about how close the cast has gotten and how hard it will be to let go after spending so much time together over such a long period.
She discussed her favorite day on the set and may or may not surprise you that it’s a moment that reunited her with someone very dear to her in the cast. Check out what else she had to say.
For Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, portraying this role has given her opportunities to play some incredible moments that she knows wouldn’t have been possible on any other show.
She recalls a particular scene with Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon) that sort of set the stage for who Cersei would become — not that his behavior towards her was really an excuse. Check out what else she had to say.
Peter Dinklage makes it crystal clear how much Tyrion Lannister has come to mean to him. He compares the show to how others in the fantasy genre have worked before and explains why Game of Thrones is so different.
He goes on to explain what else makes the show so special, from the people behind the scenes to the entire cast and how special it has all been. Check out what else he had to say.
