'Game of Thrones' has come to an end. It was a hard reality to accept for the show’s fans. Some of them were even disappointed in the last season. Some of them had even gone to the extent of starting a petition (which got over 1 million signatures!) for the showrunners to remake the last season! However, there may be less reason for despair as it is far from over for the stars of the show. Some of the lead stars of the show are gearing up to appear in other projects after being affiliated with the epic drama for nearly eight years (if they didn’t die early enough). Here is a list of where and in what role the five biggest stars of 'Game of Thrones' will be appearing next.
1. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark)
Sophie leaves one role where she develops from a scared ‘little bird’ into the Lady of Winterfell and takes on another in the 'X-Men' series, where the character arcs in a more similar way. She plays Jean Grey-Summers who is scared of using her powers to the full who later turns into one of the most powerful mutants, Dark Phoenix, in the X-Men world in the upcoming movie with the same name. Fans won’t have to wait much as the movie premiers on June 7. Here’s the trailer of the 'Dark Phoenix'
2. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark)
Maisie became one of the hottest 'Game of Thrones' properties after her antics led to the fall of the dead, literally, as she killed the Night King in season eight of 'Game of Thrones', and she follows the same path as her Stark sister in taking up the mantle of an X-Men mutant, the Wolfsbane. Maisie, who is also as known Rahne Sinclair in the upcoming series ‘The New Mutants’, has signed up for another movie which is based on a comic book ‘The Owners’, set in the 1990s rural England. Watch the trailer of the ‘The New Mutants’
3. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen)
Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt (you know the rest) and the Mother of Dragons has surprised many with her transformation in the final season of 'Game of Thrones', but her new challenge will be to act out the role of a poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning in ‘Let me count the ways’. The show is set mid-19th century London. Apart from this, she will appear in two other roles in ‘Above Suspicion’, a real-life story of the first FBI agent convicted of murder, and in a Christmas movie ‘Last Christmas’, which is a rom-com based on the Wham! song.
4. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister)
Lena Headey, a critically acclaimed actress, reportedly got over a million dollar per episode to smirk and smile with a glass of wine in her hands. That's a good as win as any. She may be hated by many 'Game of Thrones' fans, but she won amazing amount of critical acclaim with her inch-perfect character portrayal as Cersei Lannister. However, she is not following suit of playing an evil character as she now plans to fight for an asylum seeker in ‘The Flood’, taking on the role of a British immigration officer. She will be starring with another 'Game of Thrones' star, Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), as the latter will serve as her boss.
