Game of Thrones Actors Will Get More Screen Time

Now that we've confirmed just how many more episode we have until we say goodbye to the HBO Original series, Game of Thrones, it's expected that the actors will have an easier and shorter time filming. That's because the show has been confirmed to have only eight episodes for this coming season, and even a shorter run at seven episodes for the last season.

Funnily enough, more of the main cast will find a longer time on screen. Emilia Clarke revealed this to Entertainment Weekly, bringing up the almost impossible ordeal of longer lines and shorter screen time.

"Damn, I gotta learn some lines! We're actually filming longer now. I don't know how that's happening."

Actor Peter Dinklage, who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister, seconded this, stating that he worked more days in this season compared to the others.

Then again, one has to remember George R.R. Martin's knack for killing off some viewers' favorite characters to keep the narrative going. And if you remember Season 6, we see a number of departures, particularly the very short-lived Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and the aptly killed off, but surely missed Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).

Considering how they held the spotlight for quite some time, it's easy to imagine how the center stage now falls in the hands of the bigger characters teased during the trailer: Dany, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Cersei (Lena Heady). That and the fact that there may be a lot of ensemble appearances onscreen, now that the gathering of aspiring leaders of Westeros has happened.

In any case, we're looking at another epic season, based on the trailer that we saw alone. Game of Thrones will be back on HBO on July 16.
