                            'Game of Thrones' season 8 premiere event sees the dead rise including Joffrey, Petyr Baelish, Margaery Tyrell and Tywin Lannister

The premiere event of the last season of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 was an important night not just for the cast who gathered for the final installment of a series that has run for over a decade, but also for fans.

While the actors got together for a peek at the first episode of probably the most anticipated show of 2019 at Radio City Music Hall, fans got a look at the characters that were brutally killed over the 7 seasons aired so far. That's right! Joffrey Lannister (Jack Gleeson), Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa), Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish (Aidan Gillen) and Ygritte (Rose Leslie), among others, made an appearance at the premiere event.

WTF I thought this dude was dead... #KingJoffrey

A post shared by J O E J O N A S (@joejonas) on


 

One of the highlights of the evening was probably when Joe Jonas met Joffrey. The singer shared a picture with his fiance Sophie Turner, who plays the role of Sansa Stark, and Gleeson and captioned it, "WTF I thought this dude was dead... #KingJoffrey."

He was also clueless, wondering why Sansa would be so chummy with the king who was the reason for her parents' death. Sophie shared the same picture and she wrote, "Awkward." We couldn't agree more! Fun fact: Jonas had to sign an NDA because Turner had clued him in about the ending of the show. 

 



 

 

Rose Leslie was at the event with her husband Kit Harrington, who plays the lead role of Jon Snow in the show. Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen was dressed in ivory gray, a color that goes with House Targaryen, of course. Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) who was brutally killed by his son Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) in the fourth season was also present at the premiere that was held in New York City. Also seen were Shae (Sibel Kekilli) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).
