Sophie Turner isn’t shy to tease Game of Thrones fans. The actress, who plays Sansa Stark, has hinted at the show’s ending before, but in a recent interview, she discussed the final script the HBO show will ever have.

In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Turner described the last table read of the series as “a mixture of exhilaration and depression,” and said that the cast “shut ourselves off from the rest of the world” behind closed blinds over the course of six hours.

“We had the read-through a while ago and at the end of it, we were all on our feet, applauding and crying,” Turner continued. With at least another year to go before fans see the six-episode final season, the actors still have some time to process the emotions before they put them to screen.

As for GoT’s audience, it should begin preparing for the end now, even with a flurry of spin-offs on the horizon.
