If you ask a fan their favourite Game of Thrones moment, more than a few will opt for the Battle of the Bastards.

The epic battle sequence saw all-round good boy Jon Snow go up against evil mad man Ramsay Bolton in a totally thrilling fight to the death - both, of course, are bastards, hence the name of their bout.

However, the HBO series could be about to show us an even more epic moment – that's according to star Peter Dinklage anyway.

Attending the world premiere of his new movie I Think We're Alone Now Dinklage (who plays Tyrion Lannister) was asked if the Battle of the Bastards could ever be topped.

His answer was very exciting indeed: "Oh my god, and then some. You are in for it. Truly."


In other Thrones news, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, warned that we won't all like the series ending.

Talking to MTV News, Harrington hinted that the finale would be divisive when he said how "difficult" it was to end it all.

"I think a TV series that spanned eight, nine years is an incredibly difficult thing to end," he admitted. "I know not everyone's gonna be happy.

"You can't please everyone. My favourite TV shows are Sopranos and Breaking Bad, where they all ended in a way that's never going to satisfy you."

Both the shows listed had hugely dramatic final scenes which caused furore when aired.

What might GoT's be? Could Westeros all go up in a big puff of dragon smoke – or might ex-star Finn Jones' prediction of democracy prove true?

You'll just have to wait and see.

Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere in 2019. The show airs on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK. Season 7 is now available to buy on DVD, Blu-ray or digital download.
