As we say goodbye to Game of Thrones, we also say goodbye to the cast – and all the fun behind-the-scenes photos that they’d share. However, just before the end, they did share some final behind-the-scenes shots to Instagram.
Sophie Turner, who played Sansa, posted this exclusive shot of Maisie Williams sporting shades, King Bran the Broken flashing a pair of gorgeous legs, and Sophie herself modeling her Juul.
She event tagged Juul Vapor in the shot. Nice advertisement for Juul.
Gemma Whelan, who portrayed Yara Greyjoy, revealed that Kit Harington’s character arc in season eight was even more humbling than what was seen on screen. Harington’s only lines the entire season were either “I don’t want it!” or “she’s my queen!” And when he wasn’t in character, Harington was the “new make up chap,” going around applying primer to other cast members.
Gwendoline Christie also shared a behind-the-scenes picture from the dragon pit, sharing a hug with assistant director Ciaran Colton, who was the first person she met on Game of Thrones.
“Playing Brienne of Tarth has redefined the way I look at the world, women and particularly myself,” Gwendoline wrote. “I have never felt so exposed by a character, but happy knowing that those feelings of discomfort were about shaking off convention and embracing strength and authenticity. “

THANK YOU. There is no other way to start this. @gameofthrones has changed my life beyond anything I could have comprehended. Playing Brienne of Tarth has redefined the way I look at the world, women and particularly myself. I have never felt so exposed by a character, but happy knowing that those feelings of discomfort were about shaking off convention and embracing strength and authenticity. This photograph was taken on my very last day saying goodbye to my friend Ciaran, he worked on the show from the beginning as an AD and was the first person I met on ‘Game of Thrones’ – he treated me with respect, kindness and great humour every single day. I shall miss seeing his smiling face in the misty dawn mornings, warmly welcoming me to set. I shall miss everyone that gave so much of themselves helping to create ‘Game of Thrones’; it was a privilege to work with such talented creatives, cast and crew. I am just so very grateful for this phenomenal opportunity and the incredible support that you’ve all given me, all your kind words and cheer – it truly means a great deal to have been part of something so many of us have loved. My heart aches with how much I will miss Ser Brienne of Tarth. But what she has inspired I will take with me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. ⚔️🖤
Lino Facioli, who is known for portraying Sweet Robin Arryn, shared an album commemorating his time on the show, some of which included behind-the-scenes shots from Tyrion’s trial.
Facioli, the unnamed Prince of Dorne, both pictured with an unnamed lord from the Iron Islands, have apparently formed a boy band.
