Maisie Williams: My Game of Thrones premiere date quote is "completely false"
"Just a tweet letting you know this game of thrones release date 'quote' I've supposedly given is completely false and taken from an interview I did years ago," Williams tweeted of the British newspaper Metro interview that quoted her saying the final season will wrap filming in December and premiere in April 2019. HBO hasn't yet announced a premiere date for Season 8, saying only that it will air sometime in 2019

Maisie Williams: Expect Game of Thrones to return in April 2019
"We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April (2019),” Williams revealed in an interview with the British newspaper Metro. As TV Line points out, the final season had been expected to wrap by midsummer. So a December wrap date would stretch filming through the entire year. HBO has yet to confirm Game of Thrones’ final season timetable. Meanwhile, Williams adds: “That's a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There's a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities."

Maisie Williams worries about being stereotyped for her looks after Game of Thrones
"It's only now I'm starting to realize the characters that are available to me because of the way I look and the characters that aren't available to me," Williams told The Irish Times. "It's a very shallow industry. And I don't look like someone who is cast in roles that are, well, sexualized."

Peter Dinklage is glad that Game of Thrones isn’t doing “the jumping-the-shark thing,” says they’re halfway done with the final season
“It’s time,” Dinklage tells Variety of ending the HBO drama. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.” ALSO: Maisie Williams will be Sophie Turner’s bridesmaid.

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.”

Jason Momoa says after visiting theGame of Thrones set, the final season is "going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV”
“Just knowing how amazing this season is going to be…” the former Game of Thrones star says of briefly returning to the HBO set. “It’s going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV. It’s going to be unbelievable. It’s going to f— up a lot of people. And it was a bummer because I’m a huge fan and I didn’t want to know what’s going on. I was like, ‘Damn, I didn’t want to know that!” ALSO: Why Arya Stark is not a role model.

Game of Thrones deserves a better villain than the Night King
“What helps elevate Game of Thrones from the other legions of fantasy-trash,” says Tom Philip, “is its acting, its generous character development (even when it goes nowhere), and its nuanced approach to the morality of ruling and war. The Night King offers none of that. He stomps around in his monochrome wasteland, sics what can only be described as "the zombie cast of The Walking Dead, only cold" on Jon Snow intermittently, all the while looking like a C-grade CGI Marvel villain (and with about the same depth as one, too).”

With this week’s episode, Game of Thrones turned into “straight-up fantasy”
The HBO series used to be an exceptional fantasy show, but Sunday’s episode showed how it’s become just a conventional fantasy, as Alison Herman points out. “While watching the episode, it was hard to avoid the conclusion that the show has reached a fundamental turning point,” she says. “Game of Thrones is no longer a uniquely subversive commentary on fantasy as a genre. It’s just straight-up fantasy, and not only because this week’s big battle pits dragons against ice zombies.”
