While there was outrage amongst GOT fans when it was announced that the final two seasons would be shorter than the usual ten episodes, Liam’s co-star Iain Glen, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, recently revealed that season 7 is going to be so big, that’s it’s actually taking longer to shoot than previous seasons.
“They are taking the length of time it takes to shoot ten episodes to shoot just seven this year and six next year.
“I think the scale and size of the set pieces, the world that is being created it’s just getting more and more extraordinary and they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten,” he told Radio Times magazine.
