“Game of Thrones” season 8 may only have six episodes, but production seems to be as long as that for a regular 10-episode season. In a recent interview, cast member Ben Crompton (Eddison Tollett) revealed that filming will wrap up next year. Meanwhile, new pictures from the production set have leaked online.

Production for the popular fantasy TV series has been ongoing for a while now. In an interview with Metro, Crompton explained there is a lot of filming needed for the six episodes since this is the last season. The cast and crew want to make sure they end the long-running show in a memorable way.

“We’re going out with a bang,” Crompton said. How exactly are they going to accomplish this? The actor was tight-lipped about teasing any details. He didn’t even talk about how big a role he will play this time around; he is just grateful that Eddison has lasted so long on a show infamous for killing off even some of its biggest characters.

As far as the ending is concerned, Crompton pointed out that no matter what the producers decided to go with, there will always be fans who will have opinions about it. However, the actor said he would be surprised if fans would be disappointed by the ending, especially since a lot of love and effort has been poured into the project.

Meanwhile, new pictures from the production set have leaked online. The pictures posted on Watchers on the Wall show the set for King’s Landing. In the past, Dubrovnik, Croatia stood in for the fantasy city, but this time, the producers are building the sets for the location.
