“The women are rocking this season — and I’m not just saying that because they’re on your cover,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo told EW. Indeed, the entertainment mag has gone full-force pun with their Dame Of Thrones edition covers, but with it, they get a bit more of a tease about what the sixth season of “Game Of Thrones” is bringing. And while it’s not much given how much is being guarded about upcoming batch of episodes, you’ll have to glean from it what you can.
“Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) always [rocks], but also Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), Arya (Maisie Williams), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Cersei (Lena Headey), Margaery (Natalie Dormer), and other characters too, like Yara (Gemma Whelan). They power this season. It’s organic to the storytelling, yet a radical shift. It’s the women that are the hope that we’re watching as the chess pieces move this season, and it’s very exciting,” Lombardo teased.
“Game Of Thrones” returns on April 24th.
