The hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones has brought us some very talented stars, that we knew very little about before the show. While some of these stars have gone on to become household names around the world, others have yet to hit the big time although it is only a matter of time before they do.
English actor John Bradley has given us some fantastic performances as Samwell Tarly over the past few seasons, with the actor preparing for Game of Thrones season five to premiere. With that premiere just a few weeks away, John has been teasing fans what they can expect from the new season.
Bradley explained, "The quandary going into season five, if anything, is that we know what people like, we know what people expect, so we know that we are going to have to keep them interested in what they like but find ways of surprising them still. I think people, after watching 40 hours of something, they start to know the formula a bit - or they start to think they know the formula a bit - so we have got to find new and exciting ways of both keeping it familiar and double-crossing them. And I think we've managed that."
He added, "As far as Sam is concerned, Sam finished season four on a relative high. He achieved so much in season four, not only coming to the forefront and gaining all this responsibility during the battle for Castle Black but also forming the more intimate relationship with Gilly. You will see how that goes into season five and you will also see how that is affected by the arrival of Stannis and everybody else."
We do not have too much longer to wait now, as Game of Thrones season five will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 12.
