The women of “Game of Thrones” posed for new cover photos just ahead of what looks to be the biggest season for the HBO hit’s female characters.
“The women are rocking this season,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told Entertainment Weekly for this week’s “Game of Thrones” cover story.
“They power this season,” the executive continued. “It’s organic to the storytelling, yet a radical shift. It’s the women that are the hope that we’re watching as the chess pieces move this season, and it’s very exciting.”
The magazine released six different covers with the actresses in their Westeros best. The covers are graced by Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), Arya (Maisie Williams), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Cersei (Lena Headey), and Margaery (Natalie Dormer).
See the cover shots and what to expect from each character below:
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is stranded by Dothraki, but her dragon, Drogon, is not far away. Though given what she's been through, she's expected to scrap the benevolent ruler style she has been using and become a lot more forceful.
Brienne's (Gwendoline Christie) next move seems wide open. But she's definitely not going to abandon her promise to Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley).
Arya (Maisie Williams) is expected to find her way out of the Faceless Men cult. Clearly, her continued desire for revenge will lead her back into the thick of things.
Sansa (Sophie Turner) leapt off the walls of Winterfell with Theon (Alfie Allen), but they will survive to go on their own duo adventure.
Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) reunite and both have been through struggles. While she'll be angry he didn't save their daughter, most believe she'll need him for other plots ahead.
