Game of Thrones season 8 might be barely visible on the (very distant) 2019 skyline, but the cast is making the rounds as animatedly as ever. In an interview with GQ, Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) teases a season 1 role for which he was originally considered, and amps up excitement for season 8. On the TV side of things, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) recently appeared on Graham Norton, alongside national treasure Tom Hanks and world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, giving a typically hilarious interview. And lastly, ThreeZero is publishing an Arya Stark figurine for those collectors amongst us.
It’s difficult for any child actor to have a career and anything resembling a normal childhood, and the stakes are that much higher when that actor is part of the world’s most popular television show. Maisie Williams began her role on Game of Thrones as Arya Stark when she was just 12 years old — she’s now 20 — and it was a balancing act to devote herself to her craft and make time for things like tutoring and schoolwork on set. However, she said in a recent interview with The Times, being part of Thrones didn’t necessarily take the place of school, but augmented it with incredible experiences and life lessons.
The Television Critics Association press tour is always a juicy source of new information about the forthcoming season of Game of Thrones, and this year was no exception, with HBO programming president Casey Bloys repping the network yesterday and speaking about season 8 and the prequels to come.
Although it won’t be until 2019, we know that Game of Thrones is indeed coming to a close, and wrapping up the world’s most popular television series comes with its own set of challenges — not the least of which is bringing it to a satisfactory end for its fans around the globe. Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) is just one of the actors feeling the pressure to live up to such high expectations, especially with only six episodes slated for Season 8.

At the Titanic Studios parking lot, a large chunk of King’s Landing is still being erected from the ground-up, after so months. We have been following the construction of this unprecedented set step by step and even discovered its explosive (and highly spoilery) purpose in season eight. And yet, the work continues: though most of it is still taking shape, at last we can see how King’s Landing is preparing for battle.
