Game Of Thrones Season 8

Out: April, on HBO
Stars: Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey

HBO airs the final season of Game of Thrones (GoT), the sensational medieval fantasy epic, in April. In this eighth and last instalment, expect Queen Daenerys Targaryen to join forces with Sansa Stark to face a terrifying White Walker invasion together.

Trivia Time!

The slight stature of Peter Dinklage can be seen in the long-running (since 2011) TV series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire. He plays the brilliant, conflicted, yet ultimately decent-at-heart high-born dwarf – who makes up for his size with loads of political savvy. Dinklage has owned the role so well that he’s received more than 60 award nominations – and won 14. A consummate actor, he has refused to be defined by his diminutive size – rejecting auditions for roles that called for elves or leprechauns. In 2009, he clinched the career-making role of Tyrion Lannister: He was the first actor confirmed for the series, and the only choice of the show’s producers. The rest, as they say, is history. Catch Dinklage on the final season of Game of Thrones, airing on HBO.
