GAME of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage treated fans to a rare behind-the-scenes snap of the show’s “Northern squad” on Twitter.
A bevy of cast members including the 49-year-old and Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are seen grinning after their characters united in Winterfell in season 8.
Characters who were previously at each others’ throats in past seasons are now allies as the regional capital in the North comes under threat from the Night King.
And the likes of Jaimie Lannister, Lord Lyanna Mormont, Varys, the remaining Stark siblings Arya, Sansa and Bran, Dothraki warrior Qhono, Brienne of Tarth – who sits on Tormund’s lap – Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow look delighted to be all under one roof – for once.
Peter’s followers couldn’t help but celebrate beneath the photo, with one writing: “I love this people! I love this squad!!!”
Another person wrote: “All I can see is Briene and Tormund.”
Tormund took a liking to Briene in season 7, and many viewers saw the picture as proof that they end up together in season 8.
The snap was posted by a Game of Thrones fan before Peter, who plays Tryion Lannister, shared it with his 193 thousand followers.
It was taken as the actors filmed The Great Battle of Winterfell, which will make television history when it airs as it is set to shatter records for the biggest battle sequence ever seen on screen.
It’s believed to air in episode 3 and will see the alliance of living armies, including the forces of the Starks and Targaryens, against the army of the dead led by the White Walkers.
The monumental war scene took a monster three months to shoot – over 50 days – with the majority of the filming taking place at night.
Jacob Anderson, who stars as Grey Worm, told The Irish Sun at the premiere of season eight: “It was occasionally miserable but I had never done anything like it and I might never do anything like that ever again in my life.
“There was a day where like there were a lot of people running around and were given weapons to run around and it was genuinely scary.
“People running past you knocking you with shields and swords and it’s like, well okay.”
The episode took a total of 11 weeks of night shoots in freezing temperatures with only trailers and space heaters to provide amenity.
