Sure, they were nice and vague, but what more were you expecting?
When asked about the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones at the Emmys Sunday night, a few of the show's major players gave us some little tidbits about what we can expect when the gang from Westeros returns to HBO next spring.
Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, gave Access Hollywood some insight into the level of political intrigue, saying “the stakes are higher than they ever have been. It’s just getting better and better.”
Headey's onscreen brother Peter Dinklage, meanwhile, said that viewers will get to see more of the unbearably awkward relationship he has with his young wife, Sansa Stark, whom he was forced to marry towards the end of last season. According to Dinklage, the relationship will remain "noble" and chaste, "not filled with passion."
“The opportunity to work with Sophie Turner who plays Sansa, I’m working with her a great deal and I love every minute of that,” he said. “She’s incredible.”
Dinklage was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Emmy for his role as Tyrion Lannister but lost to fellow HBO star Bobby Cannavale of Boardwalk Empire.
Meanwhile, Kit Harington promises a "high octane, action-packed" season four and says things don't get any easier for Jon Snow this time around. Oh, and you can bet that there will be deaths. Lots of deaths.
“[There will be] more deaths this season than any other! I can’t tell you who dies,” Harington said. “You’d think they’d tone the deaths down, but they don’t.”
In conclusion: if you're still recovering from the Red Wedding, you might want to brace yourself for what's next.
