The Game of Thrones cast was nothing if not emotional while reading their final scripts, but it may not just have been over the end of an era.
According to Variety, HBO’s SVP of Drama Francesca Orsi said: “None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”
The final Game of Thrones table read brought the entire cast together to read the final six episodes in one sitting.

The first episode is already freely available, worldwide.
