The events of Game of Thrones Season 7 are about to pick up speed!
The events of Game of Thrones Season 7 will unfold much faster, according to cast interviews from EW. The slow development of the main characters from seasons past are gone, says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the interview. “I feel like I’d been lulled into a different pace,” he said. “Everything happened quicker than I’m used to… a lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.”
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in Season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent in Game of Thrones Season 7.
Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow, explained by saying, “This season is really different than any other season because it’s accelerating toward the end, a lot of stuff collides and happens much much quicker than you’re used to seeing on Thrones… it’s so different than what everybody is used to. It’s quite exciting.”
“For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come,’” showrunner David Benioff told the site. “Well, that war is pretty much here. So it’s really about trying to find a way to make the storytelling work without feeling like we’re rushing it — you still want to give characters their due, and pretty much all the characters that are now left are all important characters. Even the ones who might have started out as relatively minor characters have become significant in their own right.”
The show is based on the novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Last season, however, the TV series moved past the point where the books have stalled.
The executive producers of Game of Thrones season 7 are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney.
