Actress Sophie Turner who essays the role of Sansa Stark in HBO's magnum opus Game of Thrones, has literally grown up working in the super-successful fiction series, ever since it first premiered in 2011.
Her quote follows news that GoT - which is now shooting its final six episodes - will continue filming until the summer of 2018 (which also suggested that the show wouldn't be back until the following year given the amount of post-production work required for each season).
'I'm really excited, ' Sophie said.
There's been a fair bit of confusion around when Game of Thrones' final season will air, with production dates shifting and expanding. Then I have some independent movies to be released. The actress also added that it will be a test for her character to be able to deal with the new problem on her own, without the help of Littlefinger.
Mark 2019 in your diaries, GoT fans: winter is here.
If you're upset about the delay, don't be: showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been open about taking their sweet time on the show's final season in order to make it the most epic yet.
As everyone is conscious that this is the last season of GoT, Turner revealed that "it was very, very emotional" when they all had the read-through for it.
"Game of Thrones" season seven launches December 12 on Blu-ray and DVD, but it's available now for preorder onAmazon.
"All of the Americans wanted to come over".
In a recent interview, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie Lannister in the HBO fantasy-drama, teased that the upcoming battle will find many favourite characters will turn into the blue-eyed walkers fighting for the Nights King. "We're all kind of feeling the end of it coming", she said. "I think that this last season will take much longer to shoot because they can only use one unit because we're all in the same sort of scenes".
