Emilia, Kit, and the showrunners David and Dan tease Game Of Thrones Season 8 in the latest edition of TV Guide

Game of Thrones Season 8 is nearly four months or lesser away from its day of airing and while we prepare for the new season, every week a new update or two keeps beefing up. First, we got the first exclusive image of Jon and Daenerys on the cover of Entertainment Weekly where they also shared a cover story revealing some details about the opening scene from the new season.

Now, it’s the turn of another popular magazine – TV Guide who have published another cover story interviewing cast members Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and the showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff. TV Insider first elaborated this story, where David Benioff and D B Weiss opened up on how the things may go wrong as now both Jon and Daenerys are in love and that they are connected. They also discussed the scope of the new season.

Emilia, Kit, and the showrunners David and Dan tease Game Of Thrones Season 8 in the latest edition of TV GuideBenioff first teased the new season, remarking:

“The scope of this season definitely exceeds anything we’ve attempted before.”

Jon Snow’s heritage was the top secret that Ned Stark has kept from the entire Westeros 17 years prior to his friend’s rebellion against the Targaryens. Now that world’s biggest CCTV archive Bran Stark and the Citadel dropout Samwell Tarly have finally cracked the code, Weiss said:

“From a dramatic standpoint, it makes things interesting, because the story is no longer about who Jon’s parents are. It’s about what happens when Jon finds out.”

Game of Thrones spin-off prequels won't be here till 2020, says HBOJon’s parents Rhaegar and Lyanna have been the key propelling factors of the story, and even the title is based on the song they’ve metaphorically written down i.e. Jon Snow – the song of Ice and Fire. Also, we’ve already known the truthfulness Jon has with his Stark blood, given the way he almost messed things with Cersei, saying “I cannot serve two queens at once.” (Cersei would betray them anyway, won’t she?). Kit reacts to Jon finding of his heritage and his relation with Dany,

“Jon is someone who plays by the book. He cannot lie,” He said. “Finding out about Dany would be very hard for him.”

Emilia too has her own ways of reacting to Jon and Dany’s blooming relationship and how it may play out in Season 8. She said:

“Daenerys’s lifelong dream has been to avenge her family and claim her rightful seat on the Iron Throne. She truly loves Jon. Were she to find out about his title, it would cut deep.”

Yet, we guess we’ll find out more about it once the new season finally airs in April. Till then we can hope they release the official trailer and the date of airing soon!

The tiny footage is part of the video titled “It All Starts Here,” and it gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect from HBO in 2019. For us the center of attention is the Game Of Thrones footage in the video and we can see the Unsullied and Dothraki marching into Winterfell, with Drogon flying above and the Northerners are really scared to see a dragon for the first time in their life, but not Arya.

"The Dragon and the Wolf" becomes the most watched Game of Thrones episode ever jon_snow_and_dany

Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming to our television sets in less than two months. While Jason Momoa might have hinted at the red carpet premiere date on April 3, 2019, which is eleven days before the actual airing date of the new season, a new announcement has been made by HBO which reveals the cast of the premiere. Taking into account what actually has been announced by HBO we have two cast members who – much to our surprise may return back for the Final Season of Game of Thrones.

The list announced on the website of HBO gives us detail about which characters will be back during the first episode of season 8 and these include main cast members like Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Gwendoline Christie, and more!

Other stars included in the list are Ben Crompton (Edd Tollett), Kristopher Hivju (Tormund), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), and others.

This tells that the first episode of this season will be in fact exactly 60-minutes-long as revealed earlier. But, before we give away the names of those cast members – please proceed with caution in case you want to be spoiler-free for Game of Thrones Season 8.

Peter Dinklage says Game Of Thrones Season 8 battles will be better than ‘the Battle of the Bastards’Talking about the two cast members who will be back in the season 8 premiere episode, pretty much confirming that they are reprising their roles in season include:

Tobias Menzies: The actor who plays the role of the long- lost uncle of the Starks – Edmure Tully who was last seen being used as a bait by the Lannisters and the Freys in Season 6 to win back Riverrun.

Lino Facioli: Lino Francioli – the actor who plays the role of the last heir of House Arryn – Robin Arryn. He was last seen practising archery in Season 6 with Ser Yohn Royce at Vale. He appeared briefly in the scene where the deceased Littlefinger had Vale align with Starks and had gifted him a Gyrfalcon.

This gives us some hope for two major houses surviving the events in Game of Thrones Season 8 unless the showrunners have decided to bring them only to kill them later. Here’s a full list of the cast members who will be a part of Game Of Thrones season 8 premiere:

Sophie Turner reveals Sansa is getting an armour in Game of Thrones Season 8

With us being in the mid of February, Game of Thrones Season 8 seems to be arriving sooner than ever. While we wait for the official trailer which we expect to drop soon, more and more cast interviews have started surfacing. And this time it is Sophie Turner – who has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that her attire is getting a new upgrade in Season 8 with added armour. Read on.

Sophie Turner to be the lead star of the next X-Men movie

Sansa Stark – the true lady of Winterfell has undergone a rather darker change in her as compared to the other characters we’ve known over the seasons. Of course, the kind of trauma she has suffered especially witnessing the assassination of her father – she has undergone is the biggest propelling factor.

Additionally, this drastic change has also been contributed by her experiences with antagonists and power played like Joffrey, Cersei, Ramsay, and Littlefinger who’ve used and abused her over the last seven seasons. Without diving much deeper in her character arc, now let’s discuss in detail what Sophie told Entertainment Weekly.

“This is the first time I’ve had armour,” she revealed.

This armour according to EW, isn’t a regular armour worn by Knights and Kings but ‘a jet-black ensemble made of thick leather or similar material’. Sophie also said:

“We [had] the idea of it being very protective and she buttons herself up…I wanted her to have a bit of armour and be a bit more warrior like. She’s like the warrior of Winterfell.”

What the second official teaser – Crypts of Winterfell showed us has already created a lot of hype in the fandom – talks about Sansa doing her hair like Daenerys and much more. Yet, we can’t ignore that Sansa has drawn her personality from the women she has learnt a great deal like Cersei Lannister.

Where, she once did her hair in a style similar to Cersei and wore more bright colours, after returning to Winterfell – she now dresses in a darker colour like several other characters. Maybe, we’re up for an armoured Sansa much like Cersei who too has got an attire upgrade in the new season.

We haven’t got any teaser or behind-the-scenes photos that reveal Sansa’s new costume yet if Entertainment Weekly has brought us this news – the smoke obviously comes from some fire around. So, what were your thoughts on Sansa’s costume change in Season 8? Tell us in the comments.
