John Bradley, who stars as the trainee Maester in the HBO hit series, promised fans every episode in the final season will be “monumental”.
As the British star confirmed fan favourite directors Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter will be returning, he revealed they will bring a “high-stakes and high-octane” direction.
He said to the Huffington Post: “Miguel and David have done some of the standout episodes of previous seasons.
“Clearly every single episode of the six you’ve got left in Season 8 is gonna be monumental and needs somebody at the helm who’s done that kind of high-stakes, high-octane direction before for us.”
Miguel was at the helm of tense season six episode The Battle of The Bastards and the season’s incredible finale The Winds of Winter.
Whereas, David directed the most shocking episode of season three, The Rains of Castamere, which featured the horrific Red Wedding along with season five’s spectacular finale.
With the directors’ track record of producing quality episodes, John confessed fans should expect the entire season to have the same action-packed drama as an episode nine which is usually the stand-out instalment.
He continued: “I think what we used to call Episode 9 in ‘Game of Thrones’ folklore — the episode when everything comes to a head and you get a lot of spectacular sequences — I think you’re gonna get six ‘Episode 9s’ this year.
“You can tell that because we’ve got directors who have been in charge of some of the most huge setpieces in the past doing episodes all throughout the season.”
And Samwell will certainly have a huge part to play in the eighth and final season as he will most likely be the one to tell Jon Snow (Kit Harington) of his true parentage.
Game of Thrones season eight is expected to return to screens in 2019.
