Game of Thrones Season 7 ended a while ago, and production on Season 8 is set to begin this month. While the production may be at work getting ready for Season 8 filming, the hype train for Season 8 has already started running. In a recent interview, Game of Thrones star John Bradley, who plays the role of Samwell Tarly on the show, teased Season 8, and said every episode of the six will will be monumental! Read on!
John Bradley recently spoke to Huffington Post about Game of Thrones Season 8, and it looks like it will be amazing. He explained :
“We assembled a team of directors this year who have been in charge of some of our big episodes in the past. Miguel and David have done some of the standout episodes of previous seasons. Clearly every single episode of the six you’ve got left in Season 8 is gonna be monumental and needs somebody at the helm who’s done that kind of high-stakes, high-octane direction before for us.”
He went on to say :
“I think what we used to call Episode 9 in ‘Game of Thrones’ folklore — the episode when everything comes to a head and you get a lot of spectacular sequences — I think you’re gonna get six ‘Episode 9s’ this year. You can tell that because we’ve got directors who have been in charge of some of the most huge setpieces in the past doing episodes all throughout the season.”
He also talked about Sam stealing credit for Gilly‘s observation of the legitimacy behind Jon Snow‘s true parentage :
“It’s not about him … taking credit for her idea. He probably wasn’t even aware of where he heard that information. He just knows he heard it somewhere in the air, and he was able to pick it up and process it.”
