    You think you have problems with the ending of Game of Thrones? Well, you didn’t have to act in it! In all seriousness, Game of Thrones has got to be an emotionally draining experience for its cast as they get beaten up on the battlefield, tossed around by crew members standing-in for dragons and made to conjure huge emotions for all the devastating moments we witnessed during its eight season-run. Whether you love the show’s finale or despise the way things wrapped up, there’s definitely something in Game of Thrones for everyone - cast, crew, and fans included. So join ScreenRant as we look at some of the statements that many of the show’s stars and personalities - long-lived and short-lived - made about this fantasy phenomenon.
    We’ll check in with Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Ian McElhinney, Conleth Hill, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jerome Flynn, Gwendoline Christie, Isaac Hempstead Wright, John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Jacob Anderson, Pilou Asbaek, Kristofer Hivju, Rory McCann, and even George R. R. Martin. Sure, there are supercuts clogging the internet, edited in such a way to make us think we know how these GOT cast members felt about the end of the show. But let’s find out how they truly feel. Just like how George R. R. Martin probably has a few surprises up his sleeves before the final books come out, we likely don’t know about everything that went on behind the scenes. But perhaps this video will give you a better idea of how these actors felt. And maybe, just maybe, you superfans feel the same way.

    I hated that Daenery got killed by John Snow. I’m hoping the writer brings Daenery back to life and she is the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms!

    "Divisive" is being laughably generous. Nearly all the fans thought it was a disgrace. The only reason the finale has 4.2 stars on IMDB (and dropping every month) is because HBO had a bunch of sockpuppets uprating it the first three days, to get more views. If you were watching the ratings as I was, you might have noticed that the ratings started steeply plummeting a couple of days after the episode aired. IMDB really needs to do something about the networks and their ballot-stuffers. Notice that every few weeks the rating for the episode goes down by a tenth of a point. By 2021 it'll probably be at 2.5.

    Dun you get it? if you read the books, you can predict the ending. All was preplanned for the final season == To DIE. As should a good writing like GRRM does.

    Jeez guys Nikolaj hated Jaime's ending. Just watch the pre season 8 interviews where he's asked his thoughts on Jaime's ending and the guy is literally struggling to find words for it. That tweet was just him appericiating Lena but doesn't mean he liked his ending at all

    I have zero interest in watching the actors in anything after GOT, except maybe Heady, Coster-Waldau and Dinklage. I wonder how many of them will be able to maintain an acting career.

    "disappointing" is probably the best single word to describe the final season.
    They used shock and spectacle to cover up for really crappy writing. Character arcs were completely abandoned. Daenerys wasn't murdered by Jon Snow, she was murdered by the show writers.

    What got me hyped for GoT was the White Walkers ( creation, ambition, NK's voice), the meaning of John being Targarien, the meaning of the three eyed raven and most importantly how it all comes together to a song of ice and fire. The dialoges, new caracters, the fact that everybody can die any moment created so much tension. I recomended everyone to watch GoT but now i dont know what for. They rose our interesst with every season, made us wait 1,5 years to give us Bran the broken uhhm i mean they gave us these shitty 6 episodes were nothing is solved. Its like they had a list with the name of all main characters written on a paper each in one row and all their tasks right next to them. They stare at the paper thinking>> "hmm they now John is going to kill the NK and Arya is going to kill Cercei so what if we just switch things up???" Wow thats brilliant no one would guess that Arya would kill the NK cause he's not on her list." "And what are we going to do with John???" " They think he's going to marry Dani and become king, lets kill dani and get John were he came from... the nights watch" Uffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

    I somehow pretty much predicted how it ended which is odd because i barely watched only some of the first four seasons. But i just knew it would be Bran. It’s the only conclusion for why he survived the journey back. He could have died/ been killed off a thousand times before returning and there had to be a reason behind that. It was pretty obvious that Jon and Dany were going to get it on when they first clapped eyes on her. Ive got to say i shed a tear when Theon died. And i was shocked when Jaime went back to Cersei. I would liked to see her suffer more before her and Jaime had a bit of a mundane ending- pile of bricks dropping on your head? But i’m glad Arya survived and i understood her going off on a quest to massacre more people - i couldnt see her staying at home doing embroidery. Tyrion and Brienne- fine. I thought theyd off Tyrian but of course they need him as the right hand man for his Queen Sansa - i wasnt too happy about her. And Jon? Dany’s descending into madness was like being lifted from ‘Triumph of the Will’ with dragons. I thought maybe her and Jon might jointly rule but she went loony so had to be offed and he had to do it. As for Jon riding of? I dont know what else they could think of to do with him.
    I got the box set and when we’ve finished watching Peaky bloody Blinders i’m going to start watching G.OT from the beginning and pay more attention this time

    Well of course Sophie is happy, her character got a good ending. All the other characters were just tossed in the trash. I'm so sick of everyone saying "not everyone will be happy"... NOBODY'S HAPPY! Years of build up, years of foreshadowing, seasons devoted to building plotlines and character arcs, all thrown away to wrap it up in a timely manner 😑😒

    Honestly just wish Dany didn't die. She was my favorite throughout the entire show. I was convinced she'd be one of the people who made it. But after I saw episode 5 I knew they would kill her. That's the most disappointing part of the ending to me.

    7 season's to make HBO look unstoppable. 8th season to prove us wrong. I feel like the show runners tried to play GRR Martin and failed completely. If this is how they are going to treat their shows then I don't care about the prequels anymore.

    They are contractually obligated to PROMOTE the show. Saying its awful isn't exactly good promotion. Anyone with eyes can see they simply peeled this off to put a period at the end....and there was ZERO love or passion put onto it....which is really just tragic. Something this huge and this well done (up until this point) deserved SO much better. I have a feeling HBO begged them to just finish the series and had to bargin just to get 6 episodes so the fans could at least have SOME kind of ending. I would never hire these writers/directors/producers again for anything. When they get bored of it they just trash it. I would have SO RATHERED they just hire new people who would have given it the time and ending it really deserved.

    I expect season 8 is unfinished. The dragon queen will return in a s8e7 or later. I guess they couldn't finish the story in time. Snow will return to save the day again. Maybe all will be a bit older. This story is clearly not finished and what will Arya find west? If I am correct two more books should follow so in a year or two we'll hear: SURPRISE!

    Disney and Lucasfilm should be very concerned if they actually invest on a new Star Wars trilogy for David Benioff and D. B. Weiss knowing that they can't write a coherent script. Kathleen Kennedy should know better by now after the Rian Johnson's Last Jedi fan backslash

    Another point I'd like to make is that I don't believe anybody wanted/ expected a happy ending to the show. GoT has constantly surprised us with unexpected horror and surprising twists. I wanted that same harsh reality in the final season. The Hound, Jorah and Theon finished their character arcs ok, the rest did not.

    Season 8 was a total clusterf**k. It was extremely disappointing, and amateurish writing in comparison to the previous 7 seasons. I have absolutely no desire to see a "prequel", a "sequel", or to buy the books now. How a show so good could end so badly just leaves me dumbfounded. D&D should be ashamed of themselves. Disappointing does not even begin to express how much of a letdown this season is. Rewrite it. And DO NOT let D&D be the ones to do it. The fans deserve it. And George R. R. Martin should be having nightmares at how badly his beautifully written books were spoiled by the horrible Season 8.

    GoT's biggest strength used to be the storylines, intrigue and dialogues. But in the last season, the show was carried almost exclusively by the amazing cinematography.
    It ended up looking like a Michael Bay movie: awesome visuals & explosions, but a nonsensical plot.

    There were a few moments I thought could have been done differently (Theon should have been the one to kill the Night King), but overall, I am extremely satisfied with the ending regardless of some of the issues. It was sad, but real. And I respect the writers not giving the fans what some of us wanted.
