Several fan favorite actors spoke about where their characters might end up next season during the Game of Thrones panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Though all the actors warned that they know nothing (just like Jon Snow), they did make some predictions.
Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, worried about how she will play the character next season now that she is blind. “The contacts I was wearing at the big reveal at the end, I only had them for 15 minutes,” she said, adding that they took several minutes to put in and were not very comfortable. “It takes them three seconds to be like, ‘Arya fights blind,’ but it takes me a long time to master that.”
Natalie Dormer also worried about her character, Margaery, who audiences last saw wallowing in a prison. “I think Margaery is quite a bit of trouble to be honest,” she said. “Grandma’s not around to take care of her anymore.”
Many other characters ended up in equally grim circumstances, including Davos, who just found out that all the Baratheons are dead. Seth Meyers, the host of the panel, suggested that Davos might smile more this season now that Stannis Baratheon is dead (after all, Meyers pointed out, he was a real downer). But Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos quipped: “I don’t think that’s going to happen—especially when I hear about what this did,” pointing to Carice van Houten, who plays Melisandre.
And Conleth Hill (Varys) added that if history is any indication, perhaps there will be more eunuchs. “The first season I was the only eunuch in the village. Then theon jumped on the bagwagon. Then the unsullied. Trendsetter!” he joked.
