Now that we know when Game of Thrones will finally be back on our screens, we really want to know what will happen in Westeros and to our favorite characters. Especially because season seven will only have of seven episodes instead of the usual ten.
So, with less episodes, does that mean we get smaller storylines?
Not necessarily. The focus will just shift a little bit and instead of focusing more on the storyline, season seven will pay more attention to the main cast, as Kit Harington has revealed in an interview with The Huffington Post.
According to Harington, he has done more in season seven than he has done before.
“I certainly did more this season than I’ve ever done. I think every actor on it did more action, had more action, had more scenes.”
He adds that the heads behind Game of Thrones “really focused it because less characters are coming in, and they’re focusing in on the existing ones, and there are lots of people who cross paths, and that’s something that I think the audience has been waiting for for a long time.”
And we all have a pretty good idea who could finally be meeting!
However, there are not only changes when it comes to where the focus of the next episodes will lie. There are also a few changes behind the scenes that might change the way we will be watching Game of Thrones season seven.
“They spent an increasing amount of money on less episodes, so it’s gonna be much bigger in scale, the CGI … we’re trying new things, experimenting with new camera techniques. I think we’re trying to break boundaries and push past boundaries in these final two seasons.”
Harington tries to explain these changes and hints that something big and apparently new could happen in season seven of the popular HBO show.
“You have to live up to the hype that’s surrounded the show and the worst thing would be to end without really pushing and trying new things. Even if it’s a failure, at least trying to go out with a bang.”
And I’m sure they won’t disappoint us in any way.
