In an interview with Variety, Peter Dinklage, otherwise known to the world as Tyrion Lannister, shared that while he thinks that the show's end is coming at the "perfect time", it's still hard for even him to say goodbye to the beloved HBO series.

Dinklage plays Tyrion Lannister on the hit fantasy drama, which also stars Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams.

'Storywise, not just for all our lives.

Game of Thrones hasn't even given us an airdate for season 8 beyond the far-away year of 2019 (it's only January 2018!), but that hasn't stopped speculation about the upcoming series (whether that be singular or plural) that should arrive after season 8.

"It's the final season, and it's a long one so we're taking our time", he further added.

Dinklage said the show's filmed about half the season. "It's the ideal timing to end it".

When host Lorraine Kelly commented that it feels "right" that Game Of Thrones is coming to a close, Maisie said: 'I feel like this is a good [time]'.

"It's time", the actor told Variety. He also described the process of leaving the cast and crew of Thrones, with whom he's spent months at a time on location as "heartbreaking". Yet he indicated that it was better for a show to go out while it was still on top.
