The Cast Of 'Game Of Thrones' Celebrated The Season 8 Premiere With Some Awesome Behind-The-Scenes Glimpses


HBO's Game of Thrones is BACK, ya'll!

Fans around the world are rejoicing after the premiere of "Winterfell," the first episode of the show's eighth and final season.

But the cast and crew are possibly even more excited––they've poured their heart and soul into this show over the last few years, and they've shared some awesome behind-the-scenes glimpses for our viewing pleasure.

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) and her green screen dragon are a sight to behold.

@emilia_clarke on Instagram: “Me and my baby (dragon) (Drogon) just very excited for you all to see #season8gameofthrones which if I’m not mistaken begins....now. #gulp…”

Lena Headey (Cersei) had several photos to share, including this one with the "evil" Septa Unella, who isn't quite so evil at all when she's not on camera.

...and this one, in which she prepares for Cersei's "walk of shame."

There's also this one, with Pilou Asbaek, who plays Euron.

She also posted a short clip of herself before she went to bed.

Raleigh Ritchie (Grey Worm) shared this photo of him, Emilia Clark (Daenerys) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) showing just how excited they are.

Look, it's Hafþór Björnsson (The Mountain) and Rory McCann (The Hound)!

Vladimir Furdik, The Night King himself:

Social media was aflame with reactions last night, too.

We don't know how we're going to handle ourselves next week.
