Game of Thrones season eight is here at last with its epic season premiere arriving on screens on Sunday and Monday night.

And to get into the spirit of things, Metro.co.uk caught up with some cast members at the Belfast premiere last Friday to find out some set secrets and season eight spoilers.

We asked the cast member who they wish their character could have killed in the series if they had their way – and it’s a total bloodbath.

*Some spoilers ahead*

Jerome Flynn – Bronn

Onion Knight actor Liam Cunningham did not hesitate in announcing he would like to take out his rival Melisandre (Carice Van Houten).

‘I think we all know who that is,’ he said when asked who Davos wanted rid of.

‘It’s got to be the Red Woman! He’s been trying to kill her for the last four seasons!’ he joked.

Hannah Murray – Gilly

Gilly star Hannah Murray also wanted to be the one to slay the evil Ramsay.

‘Probably Ramsay,’ she admitted.

‘He was just the worst and he stuck around for way too long I think.’

John Bradley – Samwell Tarley

John Bradley told Metro.co.uk he would have loved to be the one to take Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) down.

The former king is still regarded as one of Game of Thrones’ best villains and his death in season four is iconic.

‘I don’t think Sam had much time for Joffrey at all,’ he said.

‘It’s so interesting – you see Joffrey as a character who is the king to all intents and purposes but he is actually very powerless and I think that’s where a lot of his anger came from really, the fact that he felt powerless. He dealt with it all wrong.

‘But Sam is someone you’d never consider to be powerful and is actually powerful, they’re two polar opposites.’

Game of Thrones season 8 airs tonight on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV at 9pm.
