Game of Thrones

Given the sheer levels of security surrounding the story for Game Of Thrones eighth and final season, the challenge for the marketing team is having the cast say anything that won't give a plot point away. Which means the likes of Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and more are reflecting back on their experiences with the show and just offering little hits of what's to come in a big new series of featurettes.

The first of the batch is a combination of several cast members talking (yes, there is the odd curse word as they get enthusiastic chatting about certain events) and you might notice one or two repeated stories that then spread through the solo cast remembrances.

But it's still entertaining.

Next up is Jon Snow himself, Harington, who enthuses about working with Rose Leslie, who he met on the show and would go on to marry.

Then there's Clarke on Dany's first day and finding the strength of the character, drawing from her own life.

Dinklage recalls his first thought on being offered the show and the role of Tyrion ("ugh, no"), and being concerned that it would be just another fantasy story.

Headey remembers shooting the pilot as Cersei and feeling sad about the people she's never gotten the chance to work with.

Isaac Hempstead Wright recalls growing up on set and seeing the different layers of Bran Stark.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau talks about feeling like Bambi, just finding his legs in his first days shooting in Belfast and learning a lot from the show.

Turner naturally reflects on her evolution on the show both behind the scenes and on screen, and, naturally, her friendship with Maisie Williams.

And last, but very much not least, Williams discusses missing Arya and using her imagination in the early scenes.

Game Of Thrones, should you not yet know, returns to screens on 14 April in the US via HBO, with a simulcast on Sky Atlantic and a repeat on the evening of 15 April.
