The Best Cast Interviews From the GAME OF THRONES Season 7 Red Carpet

We had a whole lot of fun at the Game of Thrones season seven red carpet premiere in Hollywood last week, even if our own Editor of Dragons Alicia Lutes had more questions than the cast was willing to answer. (At least we learned you can take a rowboat to Southern California!)

But we weren’t the only ones enjoying ourselves while trying to get the cast to slip up with some juicy info, so we’ve complied some of the best interviews from the rest of the internet, to help us get ready for tonight’s long (LONG!) awaited new season.

At Mashable they had the cast members ask a magic dragon egg-ball questions about what fates await their characters. We don’t know how many of their questions were intentional attempts at misdirection, but that’s okay because our favorite part was seeing Beric Dondarrion actor Richard Dormer, and Conleth Hill who plays Varys, looking completely normal.

HBO’s own video team asked the cast what their toughest acting challenges were this season. Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson’s answers about having to be vulnerable and Gwendoline Christie’s nugget about a new physical challenge Brienne faces already have us thinking of a million possibilities for what that might mean.

And if you thought the death of Ned Stark was a huge moment in your life, Entertainment Weekly discovered the same is true for the people on the show.

You know there’s a good reason it’s hard to get answers out of these folks: they know how to avoid them, as Conleth Hill, John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), and Hannah Murray (Gilly) told Access Hollywood.

IGN might have had the smartest plan for interviewing the cast though–letting the actors do their job for them. That’s because they let one of our favorite duos, Jaime and Brienne, question one another, as Christie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau sat in the hot seat of both sides.

But as much fun as it is to joke around with the cast, we do need some real insights from them, the kind that can help feed our insatiable desire to predict what will next. Fortunately TVLine did that by asking the actors about some huge potential showdowns we could see this season.

But what about the biggest question of them all: who will end up sitting on the Iron Throne? You’d think the Mother of Dragon’s entire crew would bet on their queen, but not everyone is convinced.

“The Scary Snowman.”

That’s it. That’s the best answer we heard. And it might be the best thing the people of Westeros can do to make the Night King a lot less scary and intimidating?

Think about it: how imposing would Daenerys be if people called her “The Lady With the Big Lizards?”
