Can you believe it's been eight years since we first learned winter is coming?
Well, winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, and the characters are set for an epic showdown on the upcoming eighth and final season.
The cast and characters have certainly come a long way since the HBO fantasy series' 2011 debut. Original stars Sophie Turner, 23, who plays Sansa Stark, and Maisie Williams, who plays her warrior sister Arya Stark, 21, were just teenagers when the first season aired. The two have grown to become beautiful young women, Turner is now also an X-Men movie star, and she is also set to join House Jonas; she and Joe Jonas got engaged in 2017.
Speaking of romantic couples, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, last year married Rose Leslie, who played his character's first onscreen love interest. The two were all smiles at the Game of Thrones season eight premiere in New York on Wednesday.
