Before the Emmys began last Sunday, and with “Game of Thrones” coming around the last corner toward its finale, a couple of the show’s stars hinted at what’s to come… including a rather cryptic reveal.
“It’s quite sad. It really feels like things are wrapping up and coming to an end,” Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, said about heading into the shorter Season 7. “People are hanging around Belfast a bit longer to be around each other and be in each other’s presence.”
When reminded that there would be an eighth season, Turner dropped a cryptic message about the well-being of some of the main characters.
“We’ve got one more season…well, not all of us.”
Turner’s character Sansa found herself finally reunited with her bastard brother Jon Snow near the end of Season 6 and together they defeated Ramsay Bolton and reclaimed Winterfell, the home of the Starks. The actress said viewers should be on their toes when it comes to her character in Season 7.
“You don’t really know what’s going on with her this season,” she said. “We’re trying to figure out where her loyalties lie and you’re wondering if she is going to pull through and be a true Stark or not.”
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, said to expect more characters that haven’t spent much time together, like Sansa and Jon, to meet up in the final two seasons.
“We started seeing it in Season 6; characters that met in the first episode of Season 1 are now meeting again and you’re going to see that start happening more,” he said.
Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO in the summer of 2017.
