How will the Game Of Thrones finale affect fans?
If it’s anything like how it affected the cast, it’s going to be one hell of a tearjerker.
“We closed the blinds and shut ourselves off from the rest of the world and had six hours in this room just reading it through and crying and laughing. We had our emotional bit and then we thought, ├óΓé¼╦£Well now we’ve got eight months. We’ve still got a while to get through!'”
How emotional? She told The Hollywood Reporter:
“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.”
So… how is this not a spoiler? Knowing that Sansa makes it through? She actually still might not. She revealed:
“It was the first time every single cast member had been there and sat through all of the scripts for season eight ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ obviously not cast members who had died in the earlier seasons…”
Ah! Clever. That way during press time, no one has to say, “Oh I wasn’t there for the last one,” giving everything away.
Are YOU nervous for the finale??
