Speaking about the end of the show, Jon Snow actor Kit Harington revealed he was feeling emotional.

"I'm very emotional, of course. The past couple of weeks have been overwhelming. I've thought about the show ending a lot," he told us.

He added, "I met my wife on the show, it may have given me my future family. I met some life-long friends. It was an incredible rollercoaster and experience in acting."

We're not crying, promise... 😭

Kit kept his lips sealed when asked about how the shows ends but promised that it would be "huge and emotional."

It sounds like it was tears all round on set as Jacob Anderson who plays Grey Worm added that he had a little cry when filming ended.

Sophie Turner - aka Sansa Stark - revealed that the cast, including BFF Maisie Williams, are planning a huge holiday to celebrate the end of the show.

"None of us are ready to say goodbye so we keep making events in the future," she said.

Samwell Tarly actor John Bradley also walked the red carpet and teased that the show's ending could be controversial.

He said, "We've never been bothered about keeping people happy before. You're going to be satisfied but happy is something we don't specialise in I'm afraid."

We can't wait!

Game of Thrones returns in the US on 14 April, with UK fans able to watch a day after on the 15th.
