Trailer For HBO's Game Of Thrones Documentary: Jon Snow Actor Weeps During Season 8 Table Read
Kit Harington gets emotional.
While Game of Thrones will come to an end this Sunday, May 19, with the premiere of Season 8's Episode 6, but it won't be the last Sunday that fans of the show will want to tune into HBO this month. One week after the series finale, HBO will premiere a documentary about the making of Game of Thrones called The Last Watch. The first trailer for the doc has now been released, featuring what appears to be a table read for Episode 6. Jon Snow actor Kit Harington can be seen getting quite emotional; check it out below.
Sansa Stark actress Sophie Turner looks on with a smile, as The Hound actor Rory McCann has a wide smile on his face. As you'd expect, there's no indication of what is going on in the context of the show to produce this response. (Even the Episode 6 preview trailer doesn't reveal much.)
The documentary will shine a light on the extensive production work that went into Game of Thrones Season 8. There is also a nice moment in the trailer where showrunner D.B. Weiss embraces Daenerys actress Emilia Clarke on her final day of filming. Check out the trailer:
The Last Watch releases May 26 on HBO. It's directed by Jeanie Finlay, a well-known documentary director responsible for projects like Seahorse and Orion: The Man Who Would Be King.
In addition to the documentary, HBO is working on multiple prequel spin-offs, one of which stars Naomi Watts and will begin filming later this year. According to author George R.R. Martin, three of the five prequel series are coming along well. Aside from the fact that the show starring Watts is set thousands of years before the events of the existing show, very little has been shared. Even less is known about the other projects.
