April 2019 is an exciting month indeed as finally, after waiting for more than 500 days, Game of Thrones' final season will begin airing from this week. Season 8 of GOT promises to be action-packed and wild as we will ultimately get the answer to the question plaguing everyone's mind - who will sit on the Iron Throne? The contenders are many but at large, the bets are on Jon Snow and Daenerys Targareyan. Before that though, there will be a final epic battle sequence against The Night King that is already giving us the chills. 

Talking about the battle scene is John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly in Game of Thrones. When Entertainment Weekly asked John about shooting for the sequence, the actor revealed, "[Director Miguel Sapochnik] has such a forensic sense of detail the way he can see the point of view of all these different characters in his head and know what each individual beat means to them. It’s so inspiring. He will rein you in at times. When doing these huge fight sequences, you get carried away sometimes."

John added, "You want to make yourself look as good as possible. Miguel said to me, “I know that you want to show you’re quite good at this. But remember your character. Sam’s not that good at this. You have to play him because that’s what’s going to be truthful. So stop being so good!"

Can Game of Thrones come soon already! We can't keep calm anymore!
