As we all know, there is only two more seasons of Game of Thrones left. We are all panicing about what are we going to do with our lives, after the show is over. But apparently we are not the only ones, some member of the HBO hit series’cast are panicing too!
“I know we’re all feeling it on set,” Liam Cunningham (who plays Ser Davos Seaworth) recently told Mashable. “You’ve yet to see the work we’ve done on Season 7. You guys have two more, we have one more, we’re one ahead of you — and we’re now in the position where it must be like trying to get off drugs. We’re easing ourselves off drugs gently, and the drug is this show.”
“Because we know we’re coming to an end, and what we’ve been filming in Season 7 — without giving anything away, things are coming to a head, so not only do we feel the passage of time … that’s also been reflected in what we’re shooting,” he teased. “So it can be occasionally a little odd on set; it adds to the work and adds to the tension and we can use it, but I’ve never committed to a job like this before, this length of time. I’ve got a family on this that I’m gonna miss hugely.”
Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) agreed saying that “It doesn’t feel like a panic, but I’m panicked for people, I think. I think, and this is true of Season 6, you can feel that things are coming to a close. It’s all getting a bit much. The show’s kind of like a pressure cooker … It’s just absolute chaos.”
“I’m just in awe of how everybody’s managing to fit as much as there is into seven episodes, because it doesn’t necessarily feel like a normal season, it feels bigger,” Anderson continued.
“In terms of the pace of it, it’s been pretty much the same, but there’s definitely a feeling of… ‘it’s coming to an end. It’s kind of crazy. It’s sad for us, because we’re not going to get to hang out as much,” said Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy.
Allen continued with a small tease of season 7: “It’s gonna be a crazy season. It’s definitely going to blow a lot of people’s minds. It’s still the same running theme; characters that haven’t crossed each other’s paths before will do, and they’re gonna take it even further this time. People have loyalties that they have to examine.”
Winter has arrived to Westeros. And because of it, Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere a bit later than usual, due to them needing more wintery locations to film in. The first episode of Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere in the summer of 2017.
