Game of Thrones Quick Hits: The Road to the 2019 Emmys Interview Round-up!

Emmys season is bringing out all the stars and technical wizards of Game of Thrones, for a round of new interviews. Gotta love it! Everything from the crown choices of Westeros to the creation of “The Long Night” is covered. Here are the latest interviews featuring Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, Gwendoline Christie, Alfie Allen, and more!

Best Supporting Actress nominee Sophie Turner speaks her mind in an interview with The Wrap, defending the writing of the show, and some of the final choices made. “The fans are incredible and so loyal, and we love them because of the fact that they’re so, so passionate. I cannot fault them there. But when people were saying that there was no effort, that the writers were terrible …The most effort was put into this final season.”

As for the decision to play Sansa’s brother Bran on the throne, she says, “I think it’s true what Tyrion was saying: Bran holds all of our stories, and we can’t move on unless we remember our history. Daeneyrs had to die. Cersei was a mad queen. Arya is too much of a free spirit. Sansa probably wouldn’t want to rule the seven kingdoms anyway — she wanted to stay in the North and defend the North. I really think Bran might be the perfect person for the job.”

But Turner has her dream ending, which she shares with The Wrap. “I thought Arya would kill Cersei. And I would like to have seen Sansa and Cersei reunited, or Arya and Cersei. But there were so many ways the story could have turned out. I felt very passionately about the ending for Sansa, and I was very happy with the ending that turned out for her.”
