The much-anticipated Game Of Thrones season 8 is set to release. However, prior to the release, a premiere was held in Radio City Music Hall in New York City. In the attendance was a plethora of all Game of Thrones actors. Not just the actors who managed to survive for eight long seasons but also the ones who left the show after being brutally killed off by George RR Martin. From Emilia Clarke to Jason Momoa, from Peter Dinklage to Pedro Pascal, various celebrities strutted the red carpet for the finale's premiere.
Speaking to the actors who survived, they all shared similar emotions with respect to the series culminating to a final end. Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, quoted, “really exciting and wonderful, but also incredibly sad.” Sophie Turner who plays Sansa Stark, stated, “I went numb and walked around for hours and hours. I’ve cried over it, but I don’t think I’ve fully processed it.”
Peter Dinklage also revealed how he was devastated as he completed reading the script. “It took me a while to recover, and then once I did, I realized there was no other way to tell this story. It’s completely stunning... I think fans are going to take away many different things, and how you see it depends on who you’ve been siding with.” Check out all the pictures from the premiere below.
