**Warning: spoilers for the final season of Game of Thrones, especially for the way it all ends**

Footage of the Game of Thrones cast has captured their reactions in those final moments of the show.

Remember the ending to Game of Thrones season eight where Jon Snow (Kit Harington) kills Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) before she even gets to sit on the Iron Throne?

Now you can see what the actors thought of the show, as unearthed footage of a table read focusing on the climactic moment in season eight.

Watch the cast reaction here:

Kit switches between holding his head in his hands in surprise and putting his hands over his mouth in shock, while Clarke nods back to confirm that this is really the way Game of Thrones is going to end for them.

Everyone else looks around in surprise and excitement as they witness the confirmation that Daenerys' long journey has come to a bloody end right before she could take the Iron Throne.

These clips of footage from the table reads of the final season of Game of Thrones have been great fun to watch, especially for fans of the show who were less than pleased with the way things all turned out.

Without them we wouldn't have got the moment Varys actor Conleth Hill became an absolute icon during his death scene, his disappointment clear for all to see at the way his character was wasted.

The moment he chucks his script onto the table and leans back has been picked up by disgruntled fans as evidence that he was not happy at all with the direction his character took in those final seasons.

Plenty of fans thought Game of Thrones failed to stick the landing after eight seasons by rushing out an ending with fewer episodes and some unpopular wrap-ups to character arcs.

Many especially didn't like how Daernerys suddenly decided to unleash dragonfire on the city of King's Landing when it had just surrendered to her, a decision which ultimately led to Jon Snow killing her.

One commented that the moment was a 'terrible ending to a fantastic show', while another said 'the shock is them realising how s**tty the ending is'.

Someone else said they thought they saw 'cast members pretending to be moved' at the dramatic ending rather than showing actual emotion.

Others were more complimentary, with someone saying they 'miss this show' and another calling the dramatic moment the 'best ending possible'.

Meanwhile, Kit Harington may have thought this was the last we'd see of Jon Snow at the time, but it turns out that he'll be back in a spin-off sequel.
