Game of Thrones might already be months into shooting the eighth and final season, but don't expect it to be coming to a screen near you very soon. Then I have some independent movies to be released. I'm a producer on my next movie (Girl Who Fell From The Sky).
"Yeah, I'm really excited".
Mark 2019 in your diaries, GoT fans: winter is here.
In an interview with Variety, Turner admitted that it was going to be "tricky" for her character. She was back at Winterfell, and was the Lady there with a strong army to command.
The HBO actress continued, "This season, there's a new threat, and all of a sudden she finds herself somewhat back in the deep end". And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it ... It's a big challenge for her, without this master manipulator having her back. On the question of whether the problem she will face will be the White Walkers or a political fight; the actress asked the fans to wait and watch. On the eighth season working a huge number of people to make the final of the Saga is incredibly spectacular and epic.
"When we all had the read-through for the final season, it was very, very emotional", Turner said.
"We're all starting to occupy the same territory, we're all starting to be in the same storylines and so they can't [have two filming units] anymore", he said at the time.
"All of the Americans wanted to come over".
Turner isn't the first person involved with the show who has suggested the delayed start date, as other members of the cast have previously indicated that it was likely as well. We're all kind of feeling the end of it coming. Then we try to profit, to be together more, to go to the table together more often ... "I think that this last season will take much longer to shoot because they can only use one unit because we're all in the same sort of scenes".
