After a spectacular season 6, Game Of Thrones dominated the 68th annual Emmy Awards held on Sunday (18 September). While the HBO fantasy series garnered 12 Emmy trophies, actresses Emilia Clarke and Sophie Turner offered a glimpse of what fans can expect in season 7.
While, none of the actresses revealed more about their characters – Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark – they revealed that they have read the script and teased an awesome season ahead.
"I can't even describe this season. It's gonna be unbelievable," Turner told TVLine's Michael Ausiello during the Emmys red carpet. "When I read the scripts, I nearly fell off my chair. Jaw dropped."
Sansa's character is set to take a new turn in the upcoming season as her efforts have been ignored by the northern leaders, while choosing Jon Snow as the King of the North. The English actress also confessed that she was in tears while reading the script.
Although she was instrumental in involving Lord Petyr Baelish in the Battle of the Bastards to defeat Ramsay Bolton, by the end of the season 6, she remained just a Stark daughter sitting next to the King and her half-brother Jon Snow.
Meanwhile, Clarke teased another epic battle in the upcoming season. "I know everything! There's another battle that's epic," the actress who plays Daenerys told the website.
The Mother of the Dragons is sailing back to Westeros to reclaim the iron throne, while the King of the North Jon Snow is preparing to fight the White Walkers and their army of the deads.
After committing mass murder and losing her last child Tommen, Cersei became the Queen of the Andals and the First Men. It remains to be seen how the upcoming season will unfold as the three chosen leaders are set to decide their destiny in season 7.
Filming for season 7 has already started in Belfast, Ireland and multiple star sightings have been reported in the city. Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) and Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) were reportedly spotted in the city.
The HBO fantasy series will return on television in summer 2017.
