Filming has wrapped on the eighth and final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and while we’re still nearly a year away from airing, the show’s ending has once again been discussed in an interview.
Several of the actors have hinted that the show ends on a bold note, doing something that might not necessarily please some fans. Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, continues that sentiment and tells IGN the finale will likely divide fans. Talking about her reaction to the eighth season’s script she says:
“A lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying – I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines – to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us. Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans. I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think. I think it will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones”. That was really emotional.”
Turner will next be seen in “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” when it releases February 14th, while the final season of “Game of Thrones” is expected to air next Summer.
