Sophie Turner Game of Thrones

'I'm really excited, ' Sophie said.

Speaking to Variety, Sophie Turner seemed to confirm months of speculation that Game of Thrones won't launch its eighth and final season next year, but will instead hold the much anticipated series finale until 2019.

During the interview, the 21-year-old actress also discussed her upcoming projects including Dark Phoenix and Girl Who Fell From The Sky.

Production of the last season started in October, and Turner said that they have another six-seven months of filming left.

Winter is here, Game Of Thrones fans, but you're going to have to be patient.

Game of Thrones has had a pretty consistent schedule, airing a new season annually, since it premiered in 2011.

In a new interview with Variety, Sophie Turner discusses production for the final season, which is now filming. Then I have some independent movies to be released. She had her family back together.

While fans are still finding it hard to come to terms with the fact that season eight will be the last for GoT, the cast too are still coming to grips with it. On the eighth season working a huge number of people to make the final of the Saga is incredibly spectacular and epic. And without Littlefinger, it's a test for her of whether she can get through it ...

In the same interview, Turner teased a bit to Sansa Stark's storyline in the final season: "This season, there's a new threat, and all of a sudden she finds herself somewhat back in the deep end. This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight", Turner said.

The main reason why the series will have such a long layoff is that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss want to take extra time to ensure that Game of Thrones delivers in its home stretch. We're all staying in town a little longer, going out for more meals, trying to get together more.
