Game of Thrones Cast Members Old & New Reunite for a Farewell and Have Some Fun!

Kit Harington Jason Momoa Party

A few days ago the cast, both old and new, gathered in Belfast for a Game of Thrones-themed party before filming ends (as it’s supposed to at some point this month.) Though the party was mostly private, many photos have turned up, just as we suspected, mostly courtesy of former cast member and current social media obsessive Jason Momoa!

Though many other familiar faces were probably at this Belfast party, the ones seen in these photos are showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, cast members Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), Rory McCann (the Hound), John Bradley (Sam), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), as well as former cast members Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo), Mark Addy (Robert I) and Sean Bean (Ned Stark).

Alcohol-fueled fun was had by all, but there is more to it than that: judging by the captions, it appears the cast also found it cathartic. It must be difficult to end filming this season knowing they will not return next year and work together again. If the rest of us have any advantage over them, it’s that the end of Game of Thrones will not become real for us until the series finale airs. For the cast, it’s mostly over this month!

    1. At the risk of incurring the wrath of Ten Bears, I’m going to say… How truly bittersweet.

      On a completely different note, it was lovely meeting you at Con, although I apologize for unknowingly cornering you right before a panel!

      Oh, don’t worry, it was great to meet you! I appreciated each and every one of you who came to me. I may have felt awkward, because I’m not used to it, but I also enjoyed those conversations very much 🙂

      Danielle Stark:
      Sean Bean is in these photos? I haven’t spotted him.

      At some point in editing this article I deleted his photo by accident, somehow. Oops. Ned is back now, nothing to see here, move along! 😀

    3. I get the feeling that many of them will work with others from the cast again from time to time. It won’t be as the full group again but it would at least be something. (I’m just basing that off of how we have already seen several of them popping up together on other shows. That’s bound to happen with such a large cast and so many of them being from the same general area of the world.)

    4. 😭 Just reading that Mark Addy and Sean Bean were at the wrap party made my heart twinge.
      I’m not ready for the end!

    5. So, the Hound and Khal Drogo went into a bar…

      (Wow. A drinking team consisting of Jason Momoa and Rory McCann is a force to be reckoned with!)

      One last time.

    7. Cersei’s Brain,

      Who would’ve thought that Khal Drogo would be the most devoted fanboy on the planet?

      Meanwhile, it’s been really delightful the way Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke have kept up with their “Moon of My Life” & “My Sun and Stars” nicknames since S1.

    8. Nina is correct. you have all jumped to the conclusion this was a wrap party but the real wrap party is the end of the month, ignore this comment at your peril ladies and gents!

      Oooooooh I wonder if Robert Aramayo was there. His Ned Stark/SB portrayal was stellar. I believe I voted for him as best guest actor in the S6 wotw awards.
      Maybe HBO was filming the party and we’ll see some more tidbits of everybody together 🤞🏽

      That would be amazing… I’d like to see actors who appear at this summer’s San Diego comic con to show up dressed as their Game of Thrones characters

    11. Chilli: Have you seen this one?

      I remember that! Thx for the reminder. Always a pleasure to watch Maisie react to those two. Now that it’s more age appropriate, I’ll reword:

      So, the Hound, Khal Drogo and Arya went into a bar… 🙂

    13. Just seeing the gang all together warms my heart! It’s especially great to see Sean Bean stopping by his old dominion as well as this amazing series winds down.

      Emilia and Jason’s Instagram feeds are pure gold. So is that picture of Kit, which feels like its destined for a run in a similar vein to that video of him standing on a cliff trying not to take flight …

      God, I would love to drink a few rounds with Jason and Rory. Granted, they’d still be going strong long after I’d tapped out, but the epic story would be well worth the sure-to-be-equally-epic hangover.

    14. OT: I was wondering what projects Maisie Williams had in queue and read some articles about the upcoming film “The New Mutants” (2019), which is based on a Marvel comic book. She plays ‘Wolfsbane’ in that film and the description of the character is as follows: “a Scottish mutant struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf.”

      Hah! Is MW getting typecast? 🙂

      (Sorry…it’s more of a book!Arya thing) Long Live Nymeria!

    16. Wow, Ned & Robert back together again. Talk about coming full circle to back where it all began… Will they ever do a Giant wrap party where they invite everyone that’s been in the show? Or is something of that magnitude impossible to pull off?

      We’ve talked about this a lot in other articles however to try to answer your questions post production usually runs right from filming conclusion even into the time of the premiere. Based on the last few seasons this has taken roughly 3-4 months however I think Luka mentioned post production starts even when filming is still on-going (so would have started last year). My own belief is this may take longer this time as we are anticipating more grandeur level of CGI given increased dragons/white walkers.

      For the past few seasons a teaser has normally been released within a few weeks of filming ending. My own belief is we will likely get something in July or August. Other posters have mentioned a comic con event which may be a great opportunity. However the first teaser has never contained any real footage, typically it’s been either some dialogue or actors in costumes so dont expect too much.

      The full trailer has usually dropped 2-3 months prior to the show airing, and we usually get more than one trailer. My own belief would be we will get a full trailer towards the end of the year (perhaps October/November) but this is tied into the show premiere date which could be 1st January or even as late as 1st April.

      Those are all questions for Jack Bauer 24 if he shows up. He likes to “keep tabs” on EXACTLY when those types of things SHOULD be released. 😉

    19. Isn’t Jack the guy who is always convinced something is wrong and things are delayed? Curious case as he never shows up during filming or even in the episode reviews.

    20. Jon Snowed,
      Ya-huh, specifically last year because of the inevitable strike that didn’t happen. He commented quite a bit during the season last year in episodes open chat. I think he checks in casually and drops a comment here and there… (Hey Jack. 🙂 )

      JB24? Come out, come out, wherever you are! Never too early to predict postponements.

      P.S. Jack… just kidding. I for one appreciate your dissonant opinions, notwithstanding your “sky is falling” fears.

    22. Ser Not Appearing in this Series: Monkshood has higher letter tile values in Scrabble…

      After consulting with the judges I’m afraid we’re going to have to say no, this is not the answer we are looking for, but you earned partial credit, and thank you for playing. You get the take-home version of the show as a prize.

      To be honest I’m guessing they’ve done two parties one in Seville and one in Belfast and invited past and present actors to attend.

    25. Great pics and looks like a brilliant party. Gotta say though (and maybe it’s just me), it kinda looks as though Momoa is trying to make it all about him.. 🤔

      You’ve probably hit the nail on the head! This final year there are many milestones, like Seville and maybe Belfast, where certain actors finish filming. They have parties to celebrate and use the occasion to document the series: In Seville they filmed a documentary and last weekend Conan O’Brien conducted interviews. It makes sense many English actors like Bean and Addy would come to Belfast. I read somewhere that there would be at least one more party, though that may not be reliable info. But in a fortnight Kit and Rose’s wedding will be very interesting. No doubt GoT attendees will party there too.
