Game of Thrones won’t be back until 2019, says Sophie Turner
“Game of Thrones comes out in 2019,” the actress said in an interview with Variety. Although it’s not confirmed that the final season will air in 2019, Turner’s comment is the latest hint that Game of Thrones fans are in for a long wait for the final season. HBO programming president Casey Bloys has hinted at a 2019 start for Season 8 and actor Liam Cunningham said that the final season would be shooting through summer 2018, which would make a 2019 premiere more likely because of the lengthy post-production process.

Game of Thrones alum Stephen Dillane had no idea what was going on — and now he regrets his performance
“I’ve flicked (the show) on (since leaving) to see if I could figure out what was going on, but I couldn’t,” the Stannis Baratheon actor tells The Times of London. “Liam Cunningham is so passionate about the show. He invests in it in a way I think is quite moving, but it wasn’t my experience. I was entirely dependent on Liam to tell me what the scenes were about — I didn’t know what I was doing until we’d finished filming and it was too late. The damage had been done. I thought no one would believe in me and I was rather disheartened by the end. I felt I’d built the castle on non-existent foundations.”

Was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau joking when he said Game of Thrones cast members will be fed lines via an earpiece to avoid spoilers?
Fellow cast member Liam Cunningham recently said that the cast could only view the final season scripts in digital form at the studio. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, however, tells a Dutch TV show that the actors aren’t even going to get scripts for the final season. Instead, they’ll be fed lines via an earpiece.

For the final season, Game of Thrones actors have to read digital scripts that can only be viewed at the studio

Filming of Game of Thrones’ final season will take longer than any other season, despite only doing six episodes
Liam Cunningham says each episode will likely run more than an hour. The actor, who returns to work on Sunday, says: “We're filming right up until the summer. When you think about it, up until last season we'd have six months to do ten episodes, so we're (doing) way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes." ALSO: Lena Headey offered a Season 8 behind-the-scenes-pic.
