With the release of the exciting Entertainment Weekly cover story about Season 8 of Game of Thrones, the news machine for the final season seems to be rumbling into life — which is, hopefully, a good sign in terms of a release date drawing closer. While we wait, though, we can enjoy some never-before-seen photos of life behind the lens on the set of the world’s most popular TV series, thanks once again to Entertainment Weekly.
In an article released today, we get a sneak peek at filming previous seasons, with photos from the set going back as far as Season 2.
Included in the 16 photos are Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) riding a very strange-looking dragon:
The Night King (Vladimir Furdik) getting ready for his close-up:
The other side of the window during Tommen’s (Dean-Charles Chapman) plunge to his death:
And Arya (Maisie Williams) at Needle practice in Season 4:
It’s not exactly Season 8 news, but at least it’s something fun to keep us occupied!
