With the second half of the sixth season of Game of Thrones approaching, the latest installment of the show has been released to fans for the first time.
In an exclusive interview with EW, Game of Throne actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau revealed the story behind the series finale, “A Feast For Crows.”
Costerwaldau is now an executive producer on the show, but he has yet to discuss the ending of Season 7.
“We have to do what we have to,” he told EW.
“I don’t want to be the one to say, ‘Oh, it’s a really great finale,’ because that would be disingenuous.”
“A Game of Thorns” returns next season, but we’re still waiting on the next installment of its epic fantasy series.
Season 6 was released on September 20, 2018, but fans are waiting until the next episode of the series airs to see if Costerwald is still playing a part in the final season.
“A Stormborn” actor Lena Headey also shared some insight into how the story ends.
“It’s the first season,” she told EW in 2018.
“The first thing I say to them [the actors] is, ‘This is a great finale.
Let’s go and see what’s next.'”
Costerwallas casting in the series was originally announced in 2018, and he is one of several actors to join the series as a fan-favorite character.
“As we’re doing this series, the fans have been incredibly supportive,” he said in a 2018 interview.
“And now I’m here and I’m enjoying it.”
In the interview with Entertainment Weekly, Costerwalters character, Jon Snow, is also revealed to have been resurrected and has joined forces with Catelyn Stark.
“This is Jon Snow,” Coster Wallas said in 2018 when asked if the character was his.
Yes, I am.
And I’ve been playing this character since season one.”
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Catelynn revealed that Jon Snow has been resurrected as a villain and has been given the name of Theon Greyjoy.
Theon is one name that fans of the hit HBO show will recognize as the name for the resurrected character in Season 7 of the HBO show.
Catelyns character, Ygritte, is another new addition to the cast.
“Ygrittes” is the name given to the character in the Season 7 episode “The Dance of Dragons.”
In a 2016 interview with Variety, Catheryns co-star, NikolajCosterwallaus revealed that Nikolaj was the one who made the announcement to his character, Cairngorm.
“He was the first one to come up with the idea that I was a villain,” Nikolaj said.
“That’s what it was.
I didn’t do it by accident.
I had to.
It had to be me.”
Nikolaj also shared more details about what’s to come in Season 6.
“Game of Throws” is set to return to HBO on April 5, 2019, with a Season 7 premiere to be announced at a later date.
