'GOT' final season will give closure to fans: Iain Glen
New Delhi: Unexpected twists and turns keep fans glued to 'Game of Thrones', and its final season will be no different. Iain Glen, Ser Jorah Mormont of the globally successful TV series, says its final season will match up to expectations – but may not leave everyone happy.
The anticipation is high as Season 8 – which sums up the story of 'Game of Thrones', which started with the first season back in 2011 – is set to open in 2019. Glen says there are many surprises in store for the fans, but they will just have to wait and watch.
Asked if the finale will give closure to the fans, Glen said: "Yes, I hope. I can't tell, but I am one of the few people who have read the script and I know the ending and what happens.
"When I read it, I thought it was rather brilliant. I am a bit of a fan of the series as well, and it satiated my expectation and hopes, I felt (it was the) conclusion... But we will just have to see. You know with something this big like 'Game of Thrones', you cannot please everyone."
"All I can say is that we will be doing what we have done before and the writers have written great episodes. They have had a great strike rate up to now and I am sure that will continue," he added.
With a storyline that paints a whimsical world of dragons and White Walkers on one hand, and stays close to reality by showing how relationships cannot be trusted when it comes to ruling a kingdom, the show, with its story based on George R.R. Martin's novels, has become a global phenomenon.
It is about the thrilling quest to claim the Iron Throne, and it is the intricate and surprising tale that keeps one hooked to the show.
'Game of Thrones' brought actors like Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iwan Rheon and Glen into the spiral of fame and made them global stars. Glen said the worldwide success of the show came as a surprise to everyone.
