Three months of night shoots? Seven hells.
"Game of Thrones" is currently filming its final Season 8, and will continue taping into the summer. You have to imagine they're trying to capture the real winter of winter, and then the "dream of spring" in the warmer months.
On Monday, Feb. 12, Williams talked to Metro from Belfast, Northern Ireland -- where GoT is based. She teased some "huge" sequences ahead, and revealed her initial reaction to the final scripts:
"For the final season as a whole it was just so impressive. My first real thought was, 'Oh God, we have to shoot this now.' And it is kind of an impossible challenge. It will be really difficult.'
I am currently on my way to a night shoot, which is week 4 of 12 weeks of night shoots. It's just huge. The task is huge. But, there's no better way to leave the show, to be honest."
Williams said she knows there's a "huge amount of pressure" on the HBO show to finish strong. "I'm glad I don't write the show." No matter what, some fans will be disappointed. That's just the way of it.
But we're intrigued by the 12 weeks of night shoots that are now underway. Watchers on the Wall has spoilery details, if you're interested in what is being shot. Or you could try to keep your eyeballs pure until Season 8 finally arrives in 2019.
Actually, we should be getting the official trailer before then. It's hard to say when that might show up, since the filming schedule is so extended -- from fall 2017 to summer 2018 just for six episodes. Hopefully we get some kind of tease in the next couple of months.
