Where will we see Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Maisie Williams after ‘Game of Thrones’?
While some, like Kit Harington, will take a much-deserved break after the end of “Game of Thrones,” whose final episode was broadcast in the United States on May 19, other members of the cast are already working on other projects for the small and silver screens. What is in store for the actors behind the inimitable Tyrion, the fear-inspiring Daenerys and the indomitable Arya?
The season finale of Game of Thrones’ final season has seen the end of eight years of endless wars for the control of the Iron Throne. And while the conclusion has left some of its hordes of fans wanting, the actors were able to say their goodbyes to the characters they brought to life over the show’s eight seasons. The door to “Game of Thrones” might be closed, but other projects are already on the horizon for some of the series’ stars.
