The cast and creators of "Game of Thrones" walked their last red carpet together on Wednesday, recalling memories of their years working on the international hit television series.
Dozens of actors, many of whom were unknown before the medieval fantasy series began in 2011, flew to New York ahead of the eighth and final season of the show, which arrives on HBO on April 14.
"Game of Thrones" has won multiple Emmy awards and is HBO's biggest hit ever with some 30 million viewers in the United States and an army of devoted fans worldwide.
The series, set among warring families in the fictional kingdom of Westeros, is based on novels by George R.R. Martin in a series called "A Song of Ice and Fire.
"Plot details of the final season have been kept strictly secret although filming started in October 2017."This has been a year and a half we’ve been having to hide these. I can remember when I read the script I was like, you know, I wish I didn't have this information in my head," said Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays the visionary Bran Stark.
Season 7, which was broadcast in 2017, saw the characters head towards a great battle over the Iron Throne while a zombie army of White Walkers, led by the undead Night King, march south and threaten mankind's destruction.
