The Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere Turned Into One Big Family Reunion

Also, Gwendoline Christie set fire to the red carpet

Amanda Bell

Nearly the entire cast of Game of Thrones assembled in New York City on Wednesday evening to showcase the much-anticipated premiere episode of the eighth and final season. And in addition to some stars serving up some serious looks --- heyyyy, Gwendoline Christie --- the event also became something of a family reunion for the show's stars, present and past.

Among the current cast members who suited up to begin the end at the fiery event were Christie, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Iain Glen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Conleth Hill, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Rory McCann, Jerome Flynn, Daniel Portman, Kristofer Hivju, Pilou Asbæk, Jacob Anderson, Carice Van Houten, Hannah Murray, Joe Dempsie, and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson.

Several actors who've been long gone from the Game of Thrones call sheet also made their way to the red carpet to celebrate the last hurrah of the HBO epic, including Sean Bean (RIP Ned), Michelle Fairley, Jack Gleeson, Pedro Pascal, Indira Varma, Charles Dance, Jason Momoa, Natalie Dormer, Richard Dormer, Kristian Nairn (HOLD THE DOOR), Rose Leslie, Esme Bianco, Sibel Kekilli, and Aidan Gillen.

Needless to say, looking at these photos will give you both joy and a serious feeling of missing out.
