Thomas Brodie-Sangster hasn't met a single person who liked Game of Thrones season 8.
Former Game of Thrones star Thomas Brodie-Sangster claims he's never met a person who loved the 8th and final season of the hit HBO drama.
Brodie-Sangster joined the cast back in season 3, portraying Jojen Reed. Jojen and his sister Meera (Ellie Kendrick) aid Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) to the Wall and beyond, where he encounters his tragic end in the 4th season.
Besides GOT, the actor is known primarily for his appearances in the Maze Runner series and Love, Actually (2003). Most recently, he features in the Netflix miniseries drama The Queen's Gambit.
Despite achieving critical and strong numbers, Game of Thrones finally pulled the curtains in 2019. As with every TV show that nears its end, fans had high hopes for the concluding season, particularly because what had happened before was so well received.
However, the final season of Game of Thrones ended up being highly polarizing, with many viewers displeased by the way several plots were tied up.
Game of Thrones season 8 was widely criticized for its sluggish writing and frustrating storylines. In fact, many viewers even made a petition for HBO to remake the whole thing. And the actors themselves shared their conflicting emotions about how the series concluded.
Speaking to NME, Thomas admitted he's yet to watch most of the series:
I'm still halfway through season four. I don't have the right channel and just lost track of it a bit… I was thinking the other day I should probably watch it again because it was really good.
He is thus unlikely to share his own view on the much-criticized season 8. But Brodie-Sangster is definitely aware of the opinions of others, and they're not too kind.
Lots of people really like it, except no-one seems to like the last episode or the last season. I haven't met anyone that likes it so far.
Game of Thrones season 8 is widely believed to one of the worst final seasons in television history, particularly because the initial seasons were incredible.
Most fans thought it would go down as one of the greatest shows to ever hit the small screens, but the unbelievable fall from grace means Game of Thrones does not even get in the conversation anymore.
