Joe Dempsie (Gendry) finishes filming for Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones is currently filming for Season 8, and as you know, the filming is close to finishing, for good. While there’s some filming left to go, some of the stars are already done with the show. We recently reported about Hannah Murray, who plays Gilly, finishing her filming. Looks like yet another lead cast member has wrapped up, too. Joe Dempsie, who plays the role of Gendry, recently revealed that he is done filming for Game of Thrones Season 8. Read on!

Joe Dempsie says Gendry still thinks about Arya Stark

As you guys might be aware, Con of Thrones, the Game of Thrones fan convention was recently held, and it was attended by quite a few Game of Thrones cast members. One of them was Joe Dempsie, who talked to Insider about having filmed his final scene, and how it was emotional. Dempsie said:

“I finished last week for good. It’s a very strange feeling actually. There have been people who have been finished periodically over the past month or so, and even watching other people finish was quite emotional at times.”

Apparently things got a little too emotional for him. Recalling his final scene, Joe said:

“I thought I was all right, I thought I was going to be fine. And then I happened to be finishing on the same day as a few other actors as well. When they did my little bit I was fine, but it was when they got to the other people that I lost it a little bit. I’m fine until I see someone else trying not to cry, at which point I’m done.”

Three cast members spotted filming for Game of Thrones Season 8 at Titanic Studios

He spoke about how he enjoyed filming for Season 8 because he got to work with more cast members:

“It was impossible to know how you were going to feel until it happened and then it just made us all reflect on the years gone by. This season was such good fun because everyone’s converging on Westeros now you get to see a lot more people because in years gone by you might be ships in the night. You might be filming in some other part of the world, so you wouldn’t really get to see people, whereas we got to hang out a lot together this year.”

He ended the interview speaking about how the show ending felt like the end of school, for him. It looks like Season 8 will have all our favorites converging again, which is quite exciting. What do you guys think? Any speculations about Gendry? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
