Game of Thrones Cast Members Recount the Life-Changing Stories from Their Visit with Syrian Refugees in Greece

Originally posted 07/07/2016 11:05AM

On a recent visit to Mitilini, Greece, Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and Liam Cunningham met with Syrian refugees to bring awareness to the current crisis.

Through their trip with the International Rescue Committee, a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding refugees, they visited with some of the more than 60 million people who are currently displaced, marking the greatest humanitarian crisis since World War II.

"In 10 minutes of getting to a camp, I had tears in my eyes," Cunningham tells PEOPLE. "It just struck me how unfair the whole situation is, that it's out of these people's control."

Game of Thrones' Lena Headey, Maisie Williams and Liam Cunningham on How They'd Like the Show to End

Originally posted 07/06/2016 09:00AM

Forget winter – the end is coming.

To the dismay of fans around the world, Game of Thrones series producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have announced that the next two seasons of the show will be its last.

Normally this would send fans into a whirlwind of worry about their favorite characters' future and what the show holds for them. But this is Game of Thrones, and we haven't stopped worrying since the first episode when the Starks were introduced and their happiness was brutally short-lived.

Speculation about who will sit on the Iron Throne at the culmination of the story – and who will die trying – has been rampant ever since ... including within the cast itself.

Game of Thrones Finale Recap: 'Mother's Mercy'

Six. Six Game of Thrones characters died in the season 5 finale, "Mother's Mercy." And one of those deaths marks arguably the show's greatest character loss yet (we felt every gut stab). Oh, and Arya (Maisie Williams) is blind. Shireen (Kerry Ingram) is still dead. Cersei (Lena Headey) just totally redefined a term for walking home after a hookup. And –

There is so much more. The finale followed two extreme, full-throttle episodes, and some may have expected Sunday's episode to take a breather and hit the brakes. Instead, Thrones continued the same relentless pace and emotional magnitude for its finale. Taken together, the last three hours of the season were incredible in their scope, ambition and narrative significance. While Thrones has been playing at a higher level in terms of its production values than the rest of television for years, I have a difficult time thinking of any series that – purely on a storytelling level – has had a triple-episode arc as intense as the past few weeks.
