According to the magazine, “on the cover, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington embrace – tellingly, in the snow – in the first official photo from the set of the final season. The actors endured a grueling 10-month shoot to create just six episodes amid the cast and crew’s obsession to make every detail of the final hours as excellent as possible.”
“It’s relentless; scenes that would have been a one-day shoot five years ago are now a five-day shoot…they want to get it right, they want to shoot everything every single way so they have options,” said Harington.
Offered Clarke, “(Camera) checks take longer, costumes are a bit better, hair and makeup a bit sharper — every choice, every conversation, every attitude, has this air of ‘this is it.’ Everything feels more intense.”
All previous seasons and episodes of GAME OF THRONES are available on HBO Canada via a subscription to Crave + Movies + HBO. The final six episodes premiere in 2019.
