The ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reunited at the Emmys
The HBO show has set a record for the number of nominations it received for a single season. So it wasn’t surprising that a lot of the cast members went to the show.
Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Maisie Williams took the stage to address the fans and present supporting actress in a limited series or movie.
“I think all of us agree how amazing the entire last season was for us. We had no idea how it would end, who would betray whom, and who would end up with the prize,” said Turner.
“As much as we wish the show could have gone on forever the time had come and tonight is a chance for once again to thank all of those who watched,” said Williams. There was also a moment for applause for the fans.
Peter Dinklage was the only cast member to win an Emmy
There were multiple Game of Thrones actors who were nominated this year for their work. Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Gwendoline Christie, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams were nominated.
The only one to win their category was Dinklage who won supporting actor in a drama series. This was his fourth Emmy win for his role of Tyrion Lannister.
The rest of the cast members got on their feet to celebrate his win. There was also a sweet moment between Turner and Harington that is getting some buzz.
Sophie Turner and Kit Harington hugged at the Emmys
Someone caught the two stars hugging each other at the award show. The former co-stars look very happy to see each other and Turner pulls back to touch Harington’s face.
Many fans were touched by the moment. One fan tweeted, “this moment between sophie turner and kit harington was really too precious.” Another fan tweeted, “He has been through so much after the show. So beautiful that she gave him such a heartwarming reception and embrace.”
This is probably in reference to Harington going to rehab after the show. According to Page Six, Game of Thrones ending “really hit him hard.” A source claimed “He’s in the clinic predominantly for stress and exhaustion and also alcohol.”
His rep also gave a statement about his treatment. “Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues,” said the rep.
It looks like Harington and Turner are close after years of playing sister and brother. Hopefully, the two actors will be able to work together again in the future.
