Maisie Williams has a lovely cover story and photoshoot with S Magazine, talking Daisie, #Mophie, and the end of Game of Thrones.

“This whole season was really, really emotional. When I came to shoot my final scene, I had already watched a lot of people wrap and seen all the tears and heard all the speeches,” she says. When her own finale arrived, Williams says she was ready to leave her decade-long role behind. “It was just a really beautiful day, and a really great final scene for me. It felt like the right time to say goodbye to Arya.”

Elsewhere on the internet, a flock of Game of Thrones stars talk to The Guardian about how the show changed their lives, their GoT favorites, and much more, in a great new article.

For Isaac Hempstead Wright, it seems that it’s been a mixed blessing, affecting his first attempt at going to university. “I ended up being assigned a campus police officer,” he tells The Guardian. “It was really full-on and I felt completely overwhelmed. I couldn’t walk out of my halls without being mobbed or having to take selfies. Everyone knew where I lived. Because you’re on the university email system, I’d log on to get my lecture notes and have 40 messages from random strangers saying: ‘Hi, Three-Eyed Raven!’” The actor dropped out but is returning to college now that he’s finished with GoT.

Jorah Mormont Winter Town Winterfell Season 8

Iain Glen discusses his fame and social media notoriety courtesy of the show. He tells The Guardian that he’s aware Jorah’s “Ser Friendzone” nickname but also says, “I am such a dunce when it comes to social media I don’t fully understand what it is.”

Glen tells a sweet story about his daughter Mary visiting the bullring set in Osuna, Spain where Game of Thrones filmed the Daznak’s Pit fight scenes. He explains, “The Game of Thrones family took her and dressed her up like Ser Jorah, put her in a little kilt and put blood marks and cuts on her, made her all really dirty, gave her a wee sword and sent her off to the set. The director got her to sit beside the monitor and call ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ in a tiny little high-pitched voice, as a massive fight sequence was brought to life. That’s a very fond memory and she still talks about it.”

Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson had a hard time letting go of his character, and his trademark Unsullied armor. “On the last day,” he tells The Guardian, “my dresser, Jade, took my armour off and I realised it was the last time I was ever going to wear it. I said, ‘Please, could I leave it on for just a few more seconds?’ I didn’t want to let go of it. And I hated wearing that costume. It’s really uncomfortable. I didn’t expect to feel as emotional as I did.”

The Guardian talks to many more stars of the show including Jonathan Pryce, Carice van Houten, Gemma Whelan, John Bradley, Bella Ramsey, Hannah Murray, and Kristian Nairn, so swing by the site to check out what they had to say!

      And wow…she was right again! New promo just aired on HBO. It’s a short 30 second video with clips from the first trailer sprinkled with a couple new ones.

    2. There’s a quick clip of Tyrion saying “we’ll die”, Beric with his flaming sword, and Varys, Tyrion and Davos seeing the dragons flying, Dany and Jon near a fireplace and new clip of Cersei.

      It’s titled sneak peek 1 “Die”, so maybe they release a few more leading into the premeire.

    3. From S Magazine:

      “Faced with a hefty road of hardships, Arya soon shifts from victim to aggressor, transforming into an assassin and lady warrior bordering on the supernatural, whose thirst and willingness for revenge sees her master a talent for swordplay and nimble, martial-arts swagger.”

      In other words….
      Arya Super Ninja Assassin Warrior Princess!

      Jack Bauer 24,

      At ~ 0:23, is that new Arya footage or something from the first trailer? Also, is there a new snippet of the dragons in flight?

      I think that’s Arya from the first trailer and doesn’t look like any new dragon footage.

      The clip with Tyrion has Sansa and Dany sitting at the table behind him.

    7. That clip of Dany and Jon is at Dragonstone. If you look at where Dany is looking with her back to Jon it’s the same background of when her and Tyrion were having their take chat last season.

    8. They just dropped teaser #2! It has an extended clip of Jon at the Weirwood and Arya is behind him! It also has a new dragon clip looks like Drogon about to fly by WF and it has some Qyburn dialogue!

      Best I could find https://twitter.com/Thrones_Ar/status/1112550737144434688

      Edit: There’s an extended clip from the first trailer with Jaime yelling surrounded by the fire and it looks chaotically marvelous!

    9. Beric is yelling at Sandor whose profile you can see in the foreground …I think he’s yelling ‘Clegane’?

      Looks like Sandor is frozen in terror because of the fire.

      Are we going to have another dance of dragons situation where they have two Targs to choose from and all the players square off into factions.

      Jack Bauer 24,

      Quyburn? For me its Jaime talking.

      Yeah the audio wasn’t great on my phone and then it was too late to edit after I watched it back over and over lol. I thought the first voice over was Qyburn talking to Cersei, but as Anon said it’s Sam taking to Jon it seems.

      Thanks so much Jack. It’s interesting that I couldn’t find it on HBO GO or regular HBO NOW, but I did find them through Amazon’s HBO, and they were awesome in HD!! I spotted one important thing. If you look behind Tyrion in the “Die” clip, you will see both Sansa and Dany at the table in the great hall. We can’t see behind Tyrion’s head, so we can’t tell if anyone else is in the middle.

      These are official HBO promos, so I’m not thinking these would be considered spoilers, so I will mention I can’t help thinking about seeing Arya and Jon out at the godswood together. Arya has the Stark “Brood” down, but Jon’s brood is still better. She looks a bit eerie standing still as she’s doing. From Maisie’s interviews I was a bit worried about the reunion. But I think it’s going to be more of an adult reunion for them and they will share in some Stark brooding together and probably comfort each other some and lend some needed advice. Maybe Jon will listen to Arya, even if she tells him the same thing as Sansa! They definitely both have the brooding down in that scene.

      No problem. Yeah I don’t know why the teasers aren’t on the regular HBO NOW app, but at least Prime Videos HBO has the HD versions.

      So it looks like Arya is in Winter town when Jon arrives going by the trailer and then will have a private reunion with Jon at the Godswood. Can’t wait to see that. Also, the shot of Drogon (maybe Rhaegal can’t tell) is pretty impressive. WF looks so small in that aerial shot lol. I wonder what’s going on in that Tyrion scene with Sansa and Dany in the background.

    16. Jack Bauer 24,

      Thank you so much! What a great thing to wake up to!

      I know it was like half an second but I loved the Unsullied getting into battle formation during the “this goes beyond loyalty” voiceover! That was cool! I can’t wait to see more of them fight since the S7 “battle” at Casterly Rock was more like a montage. Also in the official trailer we saw Dany close her eyes, and in the Twitter clip we see that it’s Jaime behind her. It’s right after Jon’s voiceover “Now it’s just us.” I wonder if this is before the battle of Winterfell and he’s telling her Cersei is not joining them. But this strikes me as something he would announce to everyone and the clip looks like they’re in a private room?

    17. New sneak peak trailer looks like Dany went home to Dragonstone. Jon boys got some bad news for her he’s the Kwisatz Haderach. No really that’s the third twist in the story.

    18. Dark Sister,

      “Also in the official trailer we saw Dany close her eyes, and in the Twitter clip we see that it’s Jaime behind her.”

      I believe that is Ser Jorah behind her. It would be curious in the utmost for Jaime to be approaching her like that. Now I’m worried, as Dany looks absolutely miserable in this clip.

      Good catch, I thought that was Jorah from the split second clip.

      Maybe he’s telling her a version of the story he told Brienne of the events leading up to her father’s death by his hand. Hearing her father was going to massacre everyone in KL is going to be very emotional for Danh considering her “saviour” arc.

    20. BTW, in the shot of Jon in the crypts, there’s Ned’s statue in the background. This can mean only one thing: Jon should be standing by his mother’s statue.

    21. Well, that shot of Dany staring intently into the fire while Jon awkwardly backs out of the room doesn’t look ominous at all.

    22. Not too much new here but I hope Arya’s last season is a fitting one as she’s my 2nd favourite character in the series.

      Isn’t it the Hound with the flaming sword Jack?

      I just watched the teaser with Sam and Jon talking and I don’t see Dany leaving. That may explain her absence at the battle of Winterfell though. She clearly will be upset she is not the Queen or heir.

      Why wouldn’t she be at the battle? Drogon would be a massive weapon not to have there?

      Looks like Beric with the sword and the next shot is of the Hound from the trailer where he looks terrified.

      What a great photo of Maisie.

      Yes, I commented on the cover photo in another post. And I got a glimpse of the shot above on instagram. Rankin’s photos are my favourite Maisie photos so far. Really beautiful.
