Where to See the Game of Thrones Stars During the Long Winter Between Seasons
I know, fam: it's been a sad few weeks without Game of Thrones, and it'll be a sadder (and entirely too long) wait until season eight. The bright side is that the hardworking cast still sometimes finds time to work on other projects between seasons, and thus, you'll be able to see them in other places before the final season debuts. Emilia Clarke is fitting in a few movies (including a Star Wars spinoff!), Kit Harington is playing a real historical figure, and two cast members are mutating into superheroes. See where you can watch your favorite Game of Thrones stars during the long wait between seasons!
Of course, Clarke isn't the first GOT star to find a home in a galaxy far, far away: that'd be Brienne of Tarth herself, Gwendoline Christie. Christie is back as Captain Phasma in this December's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Peter Dinklage is also reportedly joining another huge franchise: the Avengers. The actor was rumored to be in talks for a mystery role in Avengers: Infinity War earlier this year, but one movie we can see him in before 2017 ends is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is getting awards buzz since its debut at TIFF.
And in yet another high-profile franchise, Sophie Turner reprises her role as Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but this time, the film is revolving around her character. The movie comes out Nov. 8, 2018.
Williams is following in her onscreen sister's footsteps and also joining the X-Men franchise; she has the role of Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane in X-Men: The New Mutants, which is about teenage mutants "just coming in to their powers," according to 20th Century Fox chairman Stacey Snider. That film will come out in April of 2018, but you may be able to see her before that in Mary Shelley, where she costars with Elle Fanning. The movie came out at TIFF, but doesn't yet have a wide release date.
The artist also known as Missandei pops up in next year's Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which comes out on Jan. 26.
Harington has a small-screen part with a big impact: as Robert Catesby in the BBC's historical drama Gunpowder, he's the mastermind behind Guy Fawkes's infamous plan to assassinate King James I. The three-part miniseries will air sometime this Fall.
