Game of Thrones Season 7 is returning soon, but it also brings the reality of nearing the end to the beloved series. There are only two more seasons left and even the actors are already feeling the imminent end looming the blockbuster HBO fantasy epic.
Impending Goodbyes for Game of Thrones
Jacob Anderson, the actor portraying Grey Worm, shares filming for the show’s seventh season “doesn’t feel like panic.” However, he admits he is “panicked for the people” – a statement eagerly waiting fans are quick to bite on. Avid viewers are already anxious about what is about to happen on the next season of the show that always keeps viewers at the edge of their seats, and Jacob’s tease only heightened the anticipation.
Meanwhile, when asked about the ending that is just right around the corner, Jacob admits there is really a feeling of it “coming to end.” The actor behind Theon Greyjoy, Alfie Allen, also adds it is sad for them since they will no longer be able to “hang out as much.”
This feeling, apparently, is felt by everyone in the set according to Liam Cunningham who plays Ser Davos Seaworth. He describes the feeling of the nearing end of the show as “trying to get off drugs.” Liam says Game of Thrones is the drugs and they are “easing ourselves off drugs gently.”
Liam has been on the show since its Season 2, therefore, he could really feel the new sense of urgency lurking on and off the screens. He says he has a “family” with GoT whom he will “miss hugely.”
Shorter Season, Bigger Story
The happenings for Game of Thrones Season 7 are rightfully kept by everyone in the production team, from the crew to its cast. Maisie William even admitted she feels “hurt” when some stories are leaked prematurely.
At the same time, they are free to sweetly torture us with little glimpses of what to expect. Alfie Allen even went on to say this is going to be a “crazy season.”
The running theme will be the same, according to Alfie, but as the story is coming to a close, those characters who “haven’t crossed each other’s paths before will do” which is allegedly going to be taken a step further. There is also a warning by Alfie for people’s “loyalties that they have to examine.”
Meanwhile, Jacob Anderson confesses he feels Season 7 does not seem like a normal season. Despite Game of Thrones Season 7 being shorter with only seven episodes compared to the usual 10, Jacob says it actually “feels bigger” especially when epic scenes are expected and promised to be more elaborate.
