Sophie Turner confirms Game of Thrones will not return till 2019



Game of Thrones Season 7 ended quite a while ago, and Season 8 is currently filming, and we have heard quite a lot about how it will take a long time to return to our screens, and we recently has an official nod from HBO, who didn’t feature Season 8 of the show in its 2018 promo video released recently. In an interview with Variety, Sophie confirmed that the show indeed won’t be back till 2019. Read on!

Sophie recently sat down with Variety to talk about Game of Thrones, and more. First off, she was asked about her favorite scene from Season 7, and the answer was obvious :

“It was probably the moment that you realized that Sansa was going to kill Littlefinger [Aidan Gillen] and does kill him, and when you realize that Sansa and Arya Maisie [Maisie Williams] had been scheming behind Litlefinger’s back, which is a pretty impressive thing to do for two young girls against a master manipulator. It was just a really powerful moment for her, to have used up all of her master’s lessons and finally discard him. The student becomes the master now.”

She also spoke about how it was hard to say goodbye to Aiden Gillen, who played Littlefinger, saying she learnt a lot from him in their time together on the show. She then spoke about the consciousness surrounding the fact that this is the final season of Game of Thrones :

“There definitely is. When we all had the read-through for the final season, it was very, very emotional. For the first time in “Thrones” history, we had everyone there. All of the Americans wanted to come over. Every single cast member was pretty much there. We’re all kind of feeling the end of it coming. We’re all staying in town a little longer, going out for more meals, trying to get together more. We’re all trying not to take it for granted any more.”

She then preceded to give us the heartbreaking news. Speaking of Game of Thrones filming progress, she said :

“We started in October, so we’re maybe like a tenth of the way through. [Laughs.] No, no, we’ve got six or seven months left.”

..and then when asked about how excited she was for Game of Thrones Season 8, and other projects, like X-Men: Dark Phoenix, andGirl Who Fell From the Sky :

“Yeah, I’m really excited. “Game of Thrones” comes out in 2019. “Dark Phoenix” is in November. Then I have a couple indie movies coming out. I’m a producer on my next movie [“Girl Who Fell From the Sky”]. So I’m really excited about the future.”
