New pictures also show Sansa Stark, played by Sophie Turner, as well as Lena Headey who plays famous villain Cersei Lannister and fan favourite Arya Stark.

The pictures also hint at the return of the Spider and Master of Whisperers, Lord Varys.

In mysterious footage shared last month, Daenerys meets with Sansa, who simply said: “Winterfell is yours, your grace.”

The series finale will kick off on 14 April and will only have six episode instead of 10.
