Khaleesi Doesn’t Want To Talk About Jon Snow’s Ass—And Everything Else That Happened At The Game Of Thrones Press Conference

The final season of the bloodiest, sexiest and most dragon-filled show in HBO history is almost here. We sent a reporter to find out what the cast is thinking.

Last month, along with a few dozen international journalists, I travelled to Meghan Markle’s home city (a.k.a. London, England) for a Game of Thrones media junket—a promotional event in advance of the forthcoming (and final) season (which starts April 14 on Crave). There, we met with Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), the Stark sisters (Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams), the hunkiest member of the Lannister clan (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), The Hound (Rory McCann) and several other series regulars. For the cast it was a chance to reflect on eight years in George R.R. Martin’s fantasy world. For me, it was a chance to lay the groundwork for a future best-friendship with Brienne of Tarth.
