Game of Thrones Season 8 will have loads of surprises, says Iain Glen

Game of Thrones Season 8 is midway through filming, and even though we are over a year away from the possible premiere date, the hype is starting to amp up already. By the end of Season 7, we are down to a few key characters now. In a new interview, Iain Glen, who plays one such character, Ser Jorah Mormont, recently spoke about how Season 8 will be full of surprises. Read on!

Iain Glen recently spoke to India Today about his career, and most importantly, Game of Thrones. Speaking of Season 8, he said:

“Always expect the unexpected in GoT. That is what works for the show, and season eight has loads of surprises.

The scale on which the final season has been mounted is amazing. GoT is the biggest TV show ever and the finale will reflect that. The production values are immense and shoot is taking long because the sequences are more complicated.”

He went on to give a slight teaser about his character for the season:

“In the next and last season, Ser Jorah will happily become a permanent fixture in Daenerys Targaryen’s inner circle, as the battle between good and evil draws to a spectacular finale.”

Glen has had a rather wide career in the entertainment industry, and he says it’s amusing that his most popular role is Ser Jorah:

“I find that ironic. I am surprised and delighted by thepopularity of Ser Jorah. But people on the streets of London also recognise me for Hamlet or Henry V.

Ser Jorah is a massive global hit, I know. It is bigger than anything I have done.”

Moving on, he discussed Ser Jorah a bit more, and the increased gap between season premieres:

“To me, Jorah stands for loyalty. He is admirable for the way he supports goodness at any cost.

If you ask me, the gap between the final two seasons will only increase fan frenzy. The six episodes of the final season are taking roughly the same amount of time to shoot that 10 episodes on an average would take in the past seasons.”
