Peter Dinklage Teases How 'Game Of Thrones' Will End For Tyrion Lannister

Though winter hasn't quite arrived for Game of Thrones fans, the cast are in the process of wrapping up filming the last of their characters' scenes.

However, as per usual, they're being pretty good with keeping any spoilers quiet and sealed.

Instead, they've taken to teasing fans with just enough of a snippet of information to have us on the edge of our seats.

Peter Dinklage, who plays the witty and sardonic Tyrion Lannister, has managed to send fans of the show in to a frenzy when he commented on the end of his character at an HBO film premiere.

When asked about the upcoming season of the show, Dinklage told the Belfast Telegraph: "I think it's going to be the best season of television anyone has ever seen."

He added: "It takes you to a place that you never saw coming - that I didn't see coming. Just be prepared. It's a fun ride!"

Fans have so many questions about the next season - besides when will we actually get to see it? - but the main ones we all have are: how will it end? And who dies?

Dinklage, fresh from winning an Emmy for his performance as Tyrion, had a nugget of information to share on these questions.

He said: "They end it brilliantly. Better than I could have imagined, and you people are in for it.

"It ends beautifully for my character," before quickly adding: "whether it be tragic or not."

This is major!

There's no doubt, especially with George R R Martin involved, that some of our favourite characters will meet their end before the last season is done, but whether he made a slip or not, we'll need tissues at the ready for season eight. Once it actually makes it onto our screens that is.

It's unreal to think we've been without a new episode of GOT for over a year and our next dose of Jon Snow might not be until the end of May 2019.

Earlier this year, it was rumoured it'd be out by April 2019, but a rep from HBO told Huffpost an air date for Game Of Thrones hasn't actually been announced - gutted. So, it's probably not best to hold your breath waiting for it.

HBO's president of programming, Casey Bloys, said the show would be premiering in the first half of 2019.

This means the show will qualify for the Emmy Awards in '19. A series must air between June 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019.

So, if HBO wanted the final season of GOT to be considered in the next Emmys, it would have to air before the end of May - and considering its success in the 2018 Emmys it's looking pretty positive we should have a date to start the count down soon.
