NEW DELHI: Unexpected twists and turns keep fans glued to Game of Thrones and its final season will be no different. Iain Glen, Ser Jorah Mormont of the globally successful TV series, says its final season will match up to expectations – but may not leave everyone happy.
The anticipation is high as season eight, which sums up the story of Game of Thrones that started back in 2011, is set to open in 2019. Glen says there are many surprises in store for the fans but they will just have to wait and watch.
Asked if the finale will give closure to the fans, Glen said, “Yes, I hope. I can’t tell but I am one of the few people who have read the script and I know the ending.”
He added, “When I read it, I thought it was rather brilliant. I am a bit of a fan of the series as well so it satiated my expectation and hopes. You know with something this big like Game of Thrones, you cannot please everyone.”
Glen also stated that the writers have done an amazing job throughout. With a storyline that paints a whimsical world of dragons and White Walkers on one hand, and stays close to reality by showing how relationships cannot be trusted when it comes to ruling a kingdom, the show, with its story based on George R R Martin’s novels, has become a global phenomenon.
It is about the thrilling quest to claim the Iron Throne and it is the intricate and surprising tale that keeps one hooked to the show.
Game of Thrones brought actors like Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iwan Rheon and Glen into the spiral of fame and made them global stars.
In the show, Glen is seen as former exiled Northern lord from Westeros and someone who has sworn loyalty to Daenerys Targaryen. He seems to share a very close bond with Daenerys, with many guessing that he might be attracted towards the Dragon Queen.
Of his character, Glen explained, “I always found a romantic streak in him. The makers never decided to write it in the series and I can understand why because everything about Jorah gets revealed onscreen in the story we have already seen. And the rest, we shall see.”
Glen ended with a tease, sharing, “There may be surprises but you will just have to see what happens up ahead.”
