No word yet when the final season of Game of Thrones will debut, but we do know when the HBO blockbuster is going to start shooting.
“We’re doing the first table read on Sunday for the first three episodes, second table reading on Monday, then we start rehearsals, then we start shooting,” Game of Thrones cast member Liam Cunningham said today at New York Comic-Con.
The actor who plays Ser Davos Seaworth on the series based on George R.R. Martin’s bestsellers told a crowd at a packed Hammerstein Ballroom this morning that he has received all six scripts for the final season of the show executive produced by David Benioff and David Weiss. Cunningham, who also appears in the upcoming Amazon series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams — which had a panel and dropped its first trailer at NYCC — joked that while he usually did not have problems with technology, there was such an extensive verification process on the well-guarded scripts that he actually hadn’t looked at them yet.
In addition to Cunningham, Game of Thrones also stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington.
Also on on the Philip K. Dick Electric Dreams panel today were EPs Eric Overmyer and Dan Percival plus cast members Rufus Sewell, Jason O’Mara and Alexa Davalos of The Man in the High Castle, Amazon’s other Philip K. Dick series; Electric Dreams’ EP and showrunner Michael Dinner; EP and writer Ronald D. Moore; and Isa Dick Hackett, the daughter of the writer and an EP on both shows.
