[MOVIE]: Game Of Throne Season 7 Already Done features a Celebrity Cameo

Season seven of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us, with the first episode due to be broadcast in the UK on Monday 17 July – but how much do we know about what's going to happen? 
While a large number of alleged spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven were posted online in 2016, we've avoided listing any of the leaked information in this article.
Instead, here's a quick round up of all the rumours and confirmed news we have so far.

There will be tension between Jon and Sansa

Speaking from the red carpet at the Thrones premiere on July 12, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, revealed that fans can expect to see some sibling (but not really) rivalry in season seven.
"There’s rivalry between them," the actress said. "She has power now. She’s at Jon’s right hand, and there’s definitely a lot of respect for her, considering she saved everyone. But he is grappling with just how much respect he has for her, and how much of a say she has."

"Jon is the military man, and Sansa is the politician," said Turner. "They wouldn’t be able to do it without one another, but it’s interesting to see whether they will be able to combine the two."

There will be a big battle

Speaking on the red carpet at the Emmys on September 18, Emilia Clarke teased fans by dropping a few hints about the new season. "Every single word is a spoiler almost, it's ridiculous," she admitted, but said that "they've topped [season 6]. They've topped it, again." Clarke confirmed that she has already read the scripts for the new season, and revealed one nugget of information that is sure to get fans pulses racing.
"Last season's battle was, like, ridiculous... but this season is, like, off the shizzay! There's, like, another battle that's epic," she said. When asked what we could expect from the seventh season, she gave a rather ominous reply: "You can expect less people."

Judging by some of the epic scenes in the latest trailer, it looks as if  forces belonging to Lena Headey's Cersei will, at some point in the season, go head to head with Daenerys and her army, with Jaime Lannister (and his white horse) taking an active part in the fiery battle.
 If there's one thing Game of Thrones has done consistently well across its past seasons, it's these kind of set-piece, action-driven episodes, many of which, such as last season's Battle of the Bastards, or season two's Blackwater, have felt like mini-movies in their own right.

With longer episode lengths promised in the forthcoming new series, which will be told across seven instalments rather than the customary 10, we can expect its action, including the battle promised in the trailer, to be more gloriously cinematic than ever.

One of the most loathsome villains in Westeros is apparently back - but we're not quite sure how

After watching the gory demise of David Bradley's Walder Frey at the end of season six, we were pretty sure that the character wouldn't be making a comeback anytime soon.
The website Watchers on the Wall has revealed, however, that Bradley might show his face in season seven, if his acting CV and website are anything to go by.
One theory is that Walder's resurrection could be linked to Arya's ability to "borrow" the faces of the dead.
Alternatively the villain, last seen unknowingly cannibalising his two sons before getting his throat slit,  may appear in flashback scenes.

We should finally get to see a Stark reunion

It looks as if Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), who is seen in the latest trailer at the Wall with Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick), and then in a wheelchair in the Winterfell courtyard, will finally make his way home in the next season. This means that, at long last, he'll presumably reunite with his sister Sansa (Sophie Turner) and his half-brother (technically now his cousin, following last season's reveal) Jon (Kit Harington). 

But many are also hoping that Arya (Maisie Willians) is heading North too. A  previously released image from season seven, shown below, appears to show the character at Winterfell; it's admittedly tricky to tell, given the limited background on show, but it certainly looks a bit like the ancestral Stark stronghold.
In the latest trailer, too, it looks as if Arya is dressed for cool weather, again suggesting that she is heading home.
After seeing the family scattered for so long, with many members unsure just who was left alive, seeing the surviving Starks united in seasons seven should be am immensely satisfying, not to mention moving experience for longterm viewers.

It will feature a surprising celebrity cameo

Speaking at the SXSW festival on March 13, Game of Thrones co-creator David Benioff revealed that season seven will feature a cameo from none other than Ed Sheeran. The singer's appearance apparently was planned as a surprise for Sheeran superfan Maisie Williams, although no details were given on the exact nature of his role. Sheeran later gave more details himself, saying that he will, alas, be singing: "I do a scene with Maisie [Williams, who plays Arya Stark]. I sing a song and then she goes, ‘oh, that’s a nice song’", he told Hits Radio.
It's not yet known exactly when Sheeran will appear. However, Jane Mulkerrins, reporting for The Telegraph from the US premiere of the first episode, said that the opening instalment features "a whimsical cameo from a British musical star".

We might finally get our Cleganebowl

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who stars in Game of Thrones as Gregor Clegane, aka The Mountain, aka Ser Robert Strong, has told Digital Spy that he's aware of just how desperate fans are to see a showdown between his character and brother Sandor (played by Rory McCann).
But he says we're going to have to wait and see if the longed-for fight ever materialises.
"I cannot [read all of the fan theories] - it's very hard for me to follow up everything that my fans comment," said Björnsson. "But I've been seeing some of them and I did notice a lot of people were talking about the Cleganebowl - people were waiting for me and my brother to fight.
"There's a lot of expectation from the fans to see that happen - obviously I cannot comment on that... you're just going to have to see what's gonna happen!"

The most awesome pre-teen in Westeros is returning for Season 7

You know who didn't refuse the call in The North? Lyanna Mormont. And you know who didn't refuse the call of Game of Thrones Season 7? That's right, Lyanna Mormont. Bella Ramsey, the actress who plays the ice-cold child warrior queen who is scared of nothing, has been spotted on set in Northern Ireland wearing her fierce battle-appropriate get-up. 
We can't wait to see her back on screen, telling all of those old cowards to go and fight with Jon Snow like Real Men. 

Gendry is back

Remember Gendry? AKA Joe Dempsie, AKA Chris from Skins. Son of Robert Baratheon, friend of Ayra and victim of Melisandre, Gendry narrowly escaped being turned into a blood sacrifice by Davos back in season three, where we last saw him rowing off into the distance. 
Fans have had a running joke that all Gendry's been doing for the past four seasons is rowing, which may well be the case, but he will have reached his destination by now: he was spotted filming in Belfats, and at the recent season seven premiere, and will apparently definitely be making an appearance this season.
There's no telling what Gendry is back in town to do, but it's worth bearing in mind that he is a Baratheon – and all of his half-siblings are dead.  

Game of Thrones prequel could happen 

Been keeping your fingers crossed for some sort of Game of Thrones sequel, prequel or spin-off, now that we know we're only getting two more seasons? We've got both good and bad news.
At this year's Emmy Awards, during which Game of Thrones claimed Best Drama for the second year running and became one of the most awarded TV shows of all time,  David Benioff made it clear that he and fellow Thrones showrunner DB Weiss will not be returning to Westeros after the final season airs.  
"You might want to ask George [RR Martin] about that," he told reporters at the event, when asked about the likelihood of a spin-off. "It's a great world that George created. I think it's a very rich world, and I'm sure there will be other series set in Westeros, but for us, this is it. That's really a question for George."
Author George RR Martin, meanwhile, has hinted that a prequel could be a possibility.
“I do have thousands of pages of fake history of everything that led up to Game of Thrones, so there’s a lot of material there and I’m writing more,” he told Deadline at the Emmys.
