Game Of Thrones season eight ending was decided by George RR Martin ‘five or six years ago’ – but he admits extra plots have been added in by show bosses

GAME Of Thrones creator George RR Martin decided the highly-anticipated season eight ending "five or six years ago".

The writer has revealed he planned the epic final showdown when the show was only half-way through – but admitted bosses have since added plots.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the author – who is yet to finish the Game of Thrones novels – said: "The major points of the ending will be things I told them five or six years ago.

"But there may also be changes, and there’ll be a lot added.”

The revelation comes after Sophie Turner – who plays Sansa Stark – revealed she's got a spoiler scene hanging on her wall at home.

The actress was given the storyboard from her favourite  scene, which was also her last, and wasted no time in putting in on her wall.


She told Rolling Stone magazine: “I feel very satisfied with the ending of the entire show. Every story arc came to a really good close.”

Her co-star Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, then teased: “After I read Season Eight, I watched Season One — there’s a lot of similarities.”

Her comments come after Aidan Gillen, who played Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish in the show, revealed he didn’t think anyone will end up on the Iron Throne.

The 50-year-old star explained: "I don't think that is going to be how it ends.

"It's got to be surprising. It might be too straight forward to think there is a winner to the game, it feels like the stakes on that front changed along the way.

"It started off as one kind of quest and ended up as another."

The final series of the HBO show will air from April.
