We’re less than two weeks away from season 7 and the Game of Thrones cast interviews are here! Teasing season 7 epicness, spilling on each others’ foibles and resolutely not disclosing spoilers, Sophie Turner, Liam Cunningham, Pilou Asbæk, Gemma Whelan, and others are here to get us even more psyched!
In lieu of plot details, BuzzFeed asked Sophie Turner, Gemma Whelan, Pilou Asbæk, Aidan Gillen, Rory McCann, John Bradley, Carice van Houten, Liam Cunningham, Daniel Portman and Jacob Anderson to dish on their fellow cast members.
Amidst the fun and occasionally goofy answers (Portman suspects that Jaime would take the best selfies with his golden hand, if given the chance), we almost had an important plot detail given away when Asbæk was asked which actor was most likely to brighten up everyone’s day. “Oh, I was just about to do a spoiler!” he said. “I was so close to saying her name!”
A few Q&As that didn’t make it to the final edit of the video were gif-ed and transcribed below in Buzzfeed’s article. Cunningham had a lot to say about his makeup process (or lack thereof) in contrast to Carice van Houten’s lengthy preparation time.
“No, there’s nothing [the makeup team can do for me now],” he said. “I had to beg for a head transplant. They haven’t got the budget. I literally walk in… I have a shower, obviously, before I come to work and I literally sit down in the chair, like that. And I get a sponge with some dirt on it and I do that [pats his own face], and then I’m shoved out the door.”
In a more serious collection of interviews with Sky Cable, the cast teased the ever-rising stakes our beloved characters will be facing next season.
“The threat is as bad as anything we’ve ever had,” Cunningham said. “The Night King is on his way with a 10,000 of the undead and there’s no single army that has a defense.”
