Report: Upcoming Game of Thrones Scene Will Bring 17 Cast Members Together
Game of Thrones is known for its sprawling ensemble cast, but the many-pronged plot usually means you don't get to see all of them in the same place. But in season seven, that might be about to change, as a new report claims that we'll see the lion's share of the cast gather together in one massive (and sure-to-be eventful) scene.

Possible spoilers follow!


According to Watchers on the Wall, an unusual number of main cast actors have been congregating in Seville, Spain, including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Pilou Asbæk, Gwendoline Christie, Anton Lesser, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Nathalie Emmanuel, Liam Cunningham, Conleth Hill, and Alfie Allen. There are set pictures confirming several of those actors, and even more unconfirmed sightings of other cast members.

But why are all of these main characters gathering at once? The report claims that the upcoming "Dragonpit" scene will be a doozy, bringing no fewer than 17 cast members together: Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Qyburn, Gregor Clegane, Bronn of the Blackwater, Euron Greyjoy, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Jorah Mormont, Missandei, Varys, Theon Greyjoy, King Jon Snow, Davos Seaworth, Brienne of Tarth, Podrick Payne, and Sandor Clegane. According to spoilers, the scene will involve Tycho Nestoris warning that the debt to the Iron Bank of Braavos is due, Cersei dealing with the debt in such a way that "will have substantial ramifications in the story." 

If true, this is completely unprecedented on Game of Thrones. Even iconic scenes like the Purple Wedding didn't have this many main cast members present. And knowing Cersei, she won't handle this conflict peacefully, so we're likely in for a huge scene in every way.

Game of Thrones season 7 airs on HBO in spring 2017.
