Aidan Gillen felt pretty good about Lord Baelish death scene. Says Aidan, “Tables are very cleverly turned much to Littlefinger’s and we hope the audience’s surprise. Also nice to probably see Littlefinger really unnerved for once and really backed into a corner and rattled and wrong and sorry and dying.”

For Brandon Stark, it’s a very interesting moment. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Brandon Stark) felt excited about the scene. Isaac said, “this for bran is an interesting moment in time this is like something he’d go back to see you know a hundred years ago.”

This revelation that Littlefinger has betrayed her family was an eye opener for Sansa Stark. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) thought that the trio, Sansa, Arya, and Littlefinger had a great scene. Says Sophie, “Bran brings the knowledge, Sansa’s the politician and Arya is the warrior.” 

Arya Stark perhaps enjoyed killing Littlefinger the most. In Maise Williams’s (Arya Stark) words, “eerie scene, because I was speaking to Aiden about it and he was like it’s a real shame because I always thought Littlefinger was a good person. And so I turned around and was like that’s why you play him so well because you don’t play him like he’s a bad character. You play him like every single one of his decisions is justified.” 

Jeremy Podeswa on Littlefinger Death Scene

Shooting Littlefinger’s death scene was one of the biggest moments of got 7×07 for Jeremy Podeswa, Director of the episode. Says Jeremy, “I think for Littlefinger because he’s the consummate player you don’t really expect him to ever get outplayed but he does get outplayed and that is like a shock. You could argue that if anybody deserved it, it’s him at this point.”

There are many complex characters on in Game of Thrones and you love them and you hate them. Littlefinger was one of those characters. Jeremy Podeswa did justice with Lord Baelish’ death scene.  

Talking more about the scene says Podeswa, “What I thought was so great about Aidan’s performance is that he really showed a kind of vulnerability and humanity in that last moment before he died. I think he really felt that he really loved Sansa and it’s kind of horrible when he gets killed.”

We will definitely miss Petyr Baelish in Game of Thrones Season 8. Adieu, Littlefinger aka Petry Baelish.
