Set to conclude in 2018, “Game of Thrones” will surely leave a remarkable legacy to its millions of viewers.
Following the fantasy series’ premiere in 2011, it consistently gave the world a taste of excellence at its finest in terms of entertainment. The multi-awarded HBO series is stylishly designed to wow the audience with its grand production and inspiring storylines. Now that the show is marked for its final run, its superb major stars have interesting statements to share as they ponder on their last season.
Actor Kit Harrington has this to say on his role as Jon Snow: “This mammoth, Goliath event in my life, which has so much of what my 20s are, is going to come to an end. I think I’m going to really make the effort in these next two years to enjoy every moment of it…”
Fan-favorite Jon Snow had weathered trials and tribulations in the series. He grew up in the belief that he was the result of his father’s infidelity and carried this dishonor throughout his younger years. Despite his difficulties in life, he emerged victorious in the battles and served as a source of strength to many especially to his people.
The young actress Sophie Turner, who gracefully plays Sansa Stark is pretty thrilled with “Game of Thrones” season 7. Sansa’s transformation from a lovely princess to a powerful ruler is crucial in the final season of the drama. In an interview, Turner teased a reunion of the cast.
“What overall excites me about this season is that main characters are coming together and it feels like things are ramping up. It’s really exciting and all feels like it’s coming to a big conclusion.”
The headstrong Arya Stark roled out by Massie Williams sounded not ready yet for the final chapter of “GOT” in her tweet. Often mistaken as a boy, she is proficient in sword fighting and is one of the show’s prominent characters.

They may have sounded excited in their anticipated last season but clearly, they’re emotional. It’s not easy to let go of their years of togetherness; through challenges and victories.
Meanwhile, the final season is said to not follow its usual April premiere but HBO confirmed its release in the summer of 2017 packed with seven episodes.
“Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual when the weather is changing. Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys explained.
