The stars on the hit fantasy TV series Game of Thrones, which include Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington, will be seen more on the screen in the upcoming seventh season.

The move comes in after co-creator DB Weiss revealed that more number of people would be killed off in the new installment and the season would be shorter in terms of episodes than the older ones, reported Entertainment Weekly.

A confused Emilia said, “When I first read this season I thought: ‘Damn, I gotta learn some lines!’ We’re actually filming longer now. I don’t know how that’s happening.”

While Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the HBO series, said he has “worked more days this season than I have in quite some time“.

Harington said, in season seven, “Everyone gets a bigger slice of the pie.”

Weiss added the world of Westeros is coming closer as many characters who did not have any plot lines with each other will be seen interacting now. “As the worlds start to converge the characters who haven’t met each other before start to meet each other and there are more main characters together in each other’s story lines than ever before,” he said.

The season 7 of Game of Thrones airs July 16. Watch the trailer here.
