All good things must come to an end, and Game of Thrones is no exception. Since its launch in 2011, the HBO show has been a global sensation, thrusting a number of then-unknown actors and actresses like Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams into the limelight.
However, having made their name on such a successful show, these stars are now wondering what they are going to do next.
The final season of Game of Thrones is due to air in 2019 and it will consist of just six episodes. Filming is due to begin later this year.
While fans of the show can’t wait to see how the Great War will play out (I mean, will Daenerys’s get pregnant? Will Jon realize they’re related?!), it will also be a sad event – knowing that we have binged our way through Westeros and that there no more episodes left to watch.
So if it’s bad for us fans, we can only imagine how difficult it is for the show’s actors. Will they ever find similar levels of success? Or have they peaked already? After all, countless once big-name stars are now gracing the screens of D-list reality TV shows.
Now Maisie Williams has opened up about what her biggest fear is once the show ends in an interview with The Irish Times – as any self-respecting fan of Game of Thrones knows, much of the show was filmed there, especially in the rugged terrain we’ve come to associate with Arya.
