As the world prepares for the final “Game of Thrones” season premiere, one of the show’s main stars says he’s anxious about fans finally seeing how it all ends.
Liam Cunningham first appeared as Davos Seaworth on the hit HBO drama in Season 2. Since then, his character has played an instrumental role in shaping the story that’s poised to come to an end in just six more episodes. Speaking to Fox News at the show’s Season 8 premiere, Cunningham admitted that he’s “nervous” about how fans will react.
“We’re nervous because we tried our hardest to make it as enjoyable as possible for the audience,” he said. “And there’s a large expectation that we want to do the story justice and want to provide the entertainment that closes this particular story and make people ‘Yes!’ … hopefully.”
While Cunningham is afraid that fans won’t like what they see, he still kept his mouth shut about spoilers and theories out of respect for creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff as well as the fans.
“I have so much faith in David and Dan to tell this story that I didn’t kind of back a horse. I wanted to see what they would present to us and its… it’s been magnificent,” he said. “Everybody is interested in what happens in the end, but they want to watch it, they don’t want someone to tell them. They don’t want spoilers. They want to know something, but they don’t want to really know until they watch it.”
The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c on HBO. Follow “Game of Thrones AfterWord” for all breaking news on Facebook.
