Emilia Clarke fell off a horse and cried in front of the whole crew on her first day of shooting. Kit Harington’s most memorable scene to shoot was the day he first met “Ygritte” AKA now-wife Rose Leslie. Maisie Williams had the most fun throwing pigeon pie at Sophie Turner on her first day on Game of Thrones. And the one thing Peter Dinklage hates about the show is that everybody expects him to be wittier than he really is, thanks to Tyrion’s wry sense of humour.
HBO has released 13 videos of various Game of Thrones actors talking about their decade-long attachment with the show, and it was a powerful trip down memory lane for all of us fans. You can access the full playlist here:
The short videos, shot in an interview format, had the stars talking about life during Thrones, their finest days, favourite scenes, favourite people to work with, and much more. Apart from the aforementioned, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Iain Glen, Sophie Turner, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Liam Cunningham and John Bradley are part of the interview series.
The ten years of Game of Thrones has been an incredible journey for us all, but none more so than the cast. Some – like Maisie, Sophie, and Isaac – went from pre-teens to adults, and some of them (Emilia, Kit, John) literally learnt how to face the camera and build their careers here. The veterans on the other hand (Lena, Peter, Nikolaj) gushed about having such rich material to work with.
But there is one thing every cast member speaks of gaining – a family. Maisie and Sophie had a common favourite day of shooting – when they reunited in Season 7. Emilia stated she still couldn’t imagine not seeing Peter or Natalie (Emanuel) every day. All of them made some friends for life and learnt a lot about themselves as well. The camaraderie would be hard to replace when they move on to other projects.
Well, that’s what a truly well-rounded and satisfying experience should sound like. Now its left for the viewers and us fans to judge if the final season leaves us with something similar.

The cast of Game of Thrones bid an emotional goodbye to the fans
Eight seasons and nine years later, Game of Thrones has finally come to an end. One of the biggest reasons it became the cultural behemoth that it is today is its incredible cast and the way they brought the characters to life. They made us laugh, cry, fear for their lives, and cheer for them through their victories and defeats.
HBO has now released a video with the stars signing off and it is giving all of us some major, major feels.
This video is a thank you note to the viewers who made the show such a massive cultural entity and kept it going throughout the years. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), John Bradley (Samwell), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Maisie Williams (Arya), and Sophie Turner (Sansa) all acknowledged how the fandom’s love kept them inspired to do better.
Emilia talked about how the show became her identity, while Gwendoline and Kristofer spoke about how fortunate they felt to be so loved by the fans. Sophie and Maisie admitted they never imagined that the show would become so big. And finally, Isaac acknowledged that it was the fandom’s excitement about the show – the intense discussions, theories, viewing parties – that kept them going.
Watch the video below:
But, as Kristofer points out, “everything has an end, even Game of Thrones”. Here’s wishing the wonderful cast great futures ahead!
