After exhilarating viewers for seven seasons straight, the hit HBO fantasy show left fans so underwhelmed with is final six episodes that they even petitioned for the network to remake them.
This conclusion included the sight of Jon Snow reuniting with Tormund and the rest of the wildlings, as well as his long lost direwolf Ghost, at Castle Black who then headed out north of the Wall to the Haunted Forest.
With Game Of Thrones now over, fans can’t help but wonder what Tormund and Snow are up to now. Thankfully, Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund on Game Of Thrones, has been thinking about it, too, and he has the perfect answer.
“Jon is in a huge depression, so he needs Tormund to cheer him up, by the fire, warming each other,” Hivju recently told Entertainment Weekly, before then laughing.
“Tormund is pretty heartbroken himself, so maybe they can bond over that.”
Tormund was heartbroken because his romantic feelings for Gwendoline Christie’s Brienne Of Tarth were left unrequited. The same can’t be said for the affection between the Game Of Thrones cast, as Hivju says that they all gathered at the SAG Awards in January, which served as their unofficial farewell.
“It hadn’t felt like it’s over. You ended when you wrapped, and then you ended when it airs, and then you ended when there’s some awards shows. But this felt like the last last thing.”
“It feels good. I gave everything to Tormund. I love the direction that the character went, with falling in love and becoming more of a comic relief buddy. He started out as an antagonist on the show and he ended up as a big bear.”
