'Game of Thrones' release video of Sophie Turner, Kit Harington arriving for day 1 of season 8 shooting
'Game of Thrones' fever is back and unlike the previous seasons, this is the last year for fans to root for their favorites to take the throne. But before the grand premiere April 14, the makers released a video from the sets of the show in which we see stars arrive for their first day of shooting for what is the last season of a show they have been a part of for many years. We see Sophie Turner arrive in Northern Ireland, which is where major portions of the sequences in Winterfell were shot and she gets dressed for her part. She says, "It's gonna be fun" and points out it's "7 a.m. in the morning" with a smile on her face.
Turner explains, "We are in Banbridge (Ireland). This is basically the studios for all of Winterfell." We also see Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark, arrive at the same studios. Nathalie Emmanuel who plays Daenerys Targaryen's handmaiden Missandei, a personal assistant if you may, also seemed excited to be back on set. She said, "I am back" as she danced around and we see Emmanuel and Kit Harrington share greetings too! And there is Gwendoline Christie, the actor who plays Brienne of Tarth and all of them enter the sets to shoot their first scene of the eighth season.

And as everyone gathers around, with all the screens ready for preview, lights ready to shine and actors ready to perform. We hear the director call out "Action." Is there an Easter egg buried somewhere in this video before the premiere? Do we get a clue as to how the reunion between the Starks is going to affect the vibe of the show? Well, this is 'Game of Thrones', so wait a couple of days more for the most looked forward to show.
