"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' Maisie Williams Dishes on Arya's Blindness: 'She'll Use It to Her Advantage'

Originally posted 04/26/2016 09:35AM

One of the many surprises from the action-packed season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones was in watching feisty, skilled fighter Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) flailing and failing to win a fight. Not to mention the fact that she is newly blind.

As penance for her murderous deeds in season 5, Arya was cast out of the House of Black and White and the tutelage of mysterious Jaquen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha). She's homeless, begging in the streets and having to endure random beatings from H'ghar's assistant, the Waif (Faye Marsay).
