12+ Pictures Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Actors Being Friends In Real Life

Now that Game of Thrones has an official release date and a teaser trailer our wait for the final season of the show is almost over. But as with most things, the closer something gets, the bigger the anticipation and it feels as though we literally cannot wait!

In order to make the time pass faster, many of the fans are binging the previous seasons in preparation for the show’s eighth season this April. If you don’t really have the time to binge watch a TV show, then some quick stalking of the actors’ social media profiles should get you through. Even though their characters are usually at each other’s throats, the actors in real life are actually quite the close-knit group. Which is expected after spending eight years together.

They’re so close-knit, in fact, that we got to see them develop adorable friendships (Pedro Pascal and Lena Heady, for example, and gal pals Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner), as well as see the on-screen romance between Jon Snow and Ygritte develop into an actual marriage between actors Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie.

So, scroll down to see some adorable pictures of the Game of Thrones cast spending time together off-screen (and not killing and plotting against each other).

(Spoiler: There’s a lot of Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa!)
