With just 10 days to go before Game of Thrones season 8, the entire cast came together for the star-studded grand premiere held in New York on Wednesday. Actor Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, walked the red carpet with wife Rose Leslie, who was a part of the show earlier.

Actor Emilia Clarke, popular for playing Daenerys Targaryen - the mother of dragons, turned up at the event in a sheer grey gown. Natalie Dormer, who played the famous character of Margaery Tyrell on the show, arrived in a gorgeous black gown. Her character was killed by Cersei in the wildfire explosion at the Sept of Baelor.

Actor Sophie Turner, popular for her portrayal of Sansa Stark, arrived with fiance and American singer Joe Jonas. Sophie was seen bonding with her onscreen sister Arya, played by Maisie Williams, as the latter candidly posed for the cameras in a navy blue ensemble. Maisie had recently dropped a spoiler that her character will die in the second episode of the upcoming season but later called it an April Fool’s Day prank.
