Finn Jones spoke to Entertainment Weekly about season 6, which he promises “will be the most epic season so far.” He says that the plot will focus on characters adapting to survive the changes they faced in season 5.
“We’re taking risks and telling stories that are different than previous seasons. And what’s interesting is most of the characters have changed so much they’re completely different people from where they started in season 1.”
This certainly applies to Loras, the once dashing Knight of Flowers who we saw languishing in a prison cell in the most recent trailer.
“Loras is definitely in a very tricky situation … I’m hopeful Ser Loras will survive, but it’s not going to be easy and he’s going to be tested – in more ways than one.”
In an interview with TV Line, Maisie Williams gave high praise to her and Faye Marsay’s “incredible” stunt doubles for season 6.
“They were so great, and they were absolute troopers. They were so fit and incredible and made us look really, really good at fighting,” she said. “Faye and I were pretty good at fighting, as well, but they were much better than us.”
