‘Games of Thrones’ star Ben Crompton teases season 8 finale

He plays Lord Commander Eddison Tollett in the show.

Game of Thrones‘ star Ben Crompton has teased the upcoming final season of the show.

Crompton – who plays the Night’s Watch’s Eddison Tollett – is currently filming the eighth and final season of the HBO favourite.

Speaking to Metro, he revealed a teaser about the last episode.

“We’re currently filming. I think the shoot goes on probably until next year,” he told the site.

“Even though there’s only six episodes, there’s a lot to shoot because it’s the last one. We’re going out with a bang.”

He also revealed that he’s surprised his character has lasted so long in Westeros.

“I’m grateful and so is my mortgage,” he joked. “In a way I’m surprised just because, just for a character to have that longevity in a show where characters get killed off so regularly.”

And will fans be pleased with the outcome of the show?

“However [creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff] choose to end the show there’s always going to be people who have their opinion about how the show should end,” he said.

“I’d be surprised if people are disappointed because there’s a lot of effort and love gone into this, and I think it’s very satisfying. So hopefully everyone will agree.”

Meanwhile, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran Stark, told The Hollywood Reporter that the series “won’t go the way some people want”.

“It will be too happy for some people, or too sad, or too whatever,” he said.

“That’s the nature of an ending… Nothing more is coming, and the certainty of it being over will definitely bother people.”


‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 bowed out with an epic final episode back in August , in which we learned of Jon’s true parentage and saw The Night King and its Ice Dragon break down The Wall and move on Westeros.

Maisie Williams – who has played Arya Stark in the show since she was 14 – recently revealed her plans for when she is “free” from ‘Game of Thrones.

The 20-year-old says she wants to “show the world what sort of actress I want to be and shape my career a little bit”.

“I’d love to do a British independent film, I’d love to make it and I’d love to be in it,” she continued.

“There are a couple of directors that I’d love to work with – Dexter Fletcher being one. I’d like to just do some work here, for Britain.”

‘Game of Thrones’ season 8 is expected to air in 2019.
