Not surprisingly, George RR Martin doesn't want 'Game of Thrones' to end

Who are the White Walkers in Game of Thrones and why were they made?

MORE GoT: Who is still on Arya's to-kill list? It's truly the end of an era. In addition, they may have a benefit, at least when it comes to the premiere, because while those who are accessing it through cable are paying to see the show via their cable bills, these options are all free. But more than anything there's just this flickering light at the end of the tunnel. That was more or less the last we heard of it in the show, but in the books there is so much more.

He said: 'I was determined to be cool about the end and decided that when people came up to me and said, "Are you Jon Snow?" that I would say very calmly, "I used to be".

Now that the show is over, the actor wants to focus on a different type of role. "I have my fingers crossed", said Martin. "Well, not the most. Hopefully, I'll be a father".

Kit Harington actually fell asleep while filming Jon Snow's dead scenes and woke up not knowing where he was.

Endings are always sad.

"We could probably do absolutely nothing and shatter every ratings record in the book", said Chris Spadaccini, executive VP and president of marketing at HBO, on the latest episode of the Variety podcast "Strictly Business".

"It's been described as a cultural phenomenon", Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth, said. "But I completely broke down after it". However, when he was asked the simple question just after the completion of eighth and final season of the fantasy drama, he found it hard to keep his emotions in check.

To complicate matters, Tyrion will be forced to mediate between Daenerys and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), the Lady of Winterfell and his former wife.

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. Luckily, he did tease that the ending is both painful and attractive for all the characters involved.

"And, of course, they passed me several years ago. But I love how it ended up".

How does Harington feel about the ending?

How has it been watching this cast and the show grow and evolve throughout the years?

I think it's a combination of the level of conflict that gets dramatized - so numerous characters are literally fighting for control of the world - with an intensive emotional, inter-personal drama that's happening between so many disparate individuals, too.
