Making an attempt to pry details about the seventh season of “Recreation of Thrones” out of the forged from Westeros is like making an attempt to separate a Targaryen queen from her dragons.

However we tried our greatest to glean a number of particulars about all our “GoT” faves from a quick interlude with the forged earlier this week earlier than tonight’s massive HBO premiere.

What did we study? Properly, fairly a bit in case you’re prepared to learn between the strains. Package Harington promised loads of character meetups, and we’re fervently hoping that features his personal character Jon Snow and the unbreakable Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). We found what life on the Citadel is like for Sam (John Bradley), and Isaac Hempstead -Wright teased a brand new, zen Bran Stark. Ten factors to Aidan Gillen for saying completely nothing whereas nonetheless sustaining an air of mysteriousness. Clearly, he’s discovered a number of issues from enjoying Littlefinger.

Right here’s a rundown of what every actor needed to say concerning the new season:

Gwendoline Christie — Brienne of Tarth

“What I can say is that once we final noticed Brienne of Tarth she was floating away in a ship and that she will probably be again on dry land. And that Brienne might be pressured to understand her personal independence when it comes to her personal unbiased thoughts and what she believes to be proper and improper, not simply in service of another person.”

John Bradley — Samwell Tarly

”You left Sam on the finish of Season 6 lastly arriving on the one place on the planet the place he feels he might be accepted. He’s been the perennial outsider all his life, being advised that what he loves and what he’s captivated with is worthy of derision and can by no means truly have an effect on the world in any constructive means. And in the event you can’t swing a sword, you then’re not any use as a person. He’s by no means actually believed that, however now for the primary time in his life he’s in a spot the place no one else believes that both. He’s lastly accepted for who he’s, and his distinctive set of expertise may be put to greatest use.”

Isaac Hempstead-Wright — Bran Stark

“He’s now the three-eyed raven, which suggests, he is aware of that he has this info for a cause, and he is aware of he has a objective and he has to satisfy that. I feel he’s obtained this very zen, calm angle the place he is aware of precisely what he has to do with it.”

Aidan Gillen — Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish

“It’s a really precarious world. Even for somebody who’s nearly as good at making his plans come to fruition in the best way that he needs them to… you by no means can inform, notably because the stakes are ramping up.”

Package Harington — Jon Snow

“[While reading the scripts] I used to be type of blown away. I’ve by no means learn a season like this. It didn’t really feel, in some methods, like ‘Thrones.’ ‘Thrones’ you’re used to a type of sluggish tempo of individuals journeying from one place. For perhaps an entire season they’re journeying and lacking individuals alongside the street and never assembly the individuals they’re meant to satisfy. And this yr, the whole lot simply strikes at a totally totally different tempo and everybody meets, individuals meet. All of the type of conferences you’re anticipating, may occur. In order that was the loopy factor this yr.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau — Jaime Lannister

“The journey continues for this bizarre couple of Cersei and Jaime and now, in fact, she’s received the facility, she’s now the queen of the seven kingdoms however, as he factors in Episode 1, I feel I can say that, he says, ‘Properly, if you say seven it’s extra like one or two as a result of we have now nothing however enemies on the market.’ In order that they need to cope with the truth that she’s gone just a little loopy.”

The brand new season premieres on HBO Sunday at 9 p.m.
