What characters said about final season

The characters are also seen in pressure in this season as compared to other previous "GOT" seasons. In one of his interview Kit Harington said: “I think there's a certain pressure I've not felt before.” He further added, "Obviously, we don’t want to do that, so we’re very much stepping up everyone’s game which is very apparent, at least to me.”

On the other hand, Sophie Turner said “when we all had the read-through for the final season, it was very, very emotional.

For the first time in "Thrones" history, we had everyone there.”
