IGN reports that Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham, who portrays Davos Seaworth, recently spoke about the show ending after its eighth and final season later this year. Cunningham stated the following on the show ending at the TCA Winter Press Tour:

“I get asked all the time, ‘What the hell are you guys thinking? You could run Game of Thrones forever.’ If you want to stay cool, and the show is cool, the best way to stay cool is to not overstay your welcome. It would be dishonorable to stay on longer than we should. There’s a portion of me that will miss it dearly, and it will probably read Liam ‘Game of Thrones’ Cunnigham on my headstone. But it was time to get out and wrap up that story… People deserve the end of that story and to not drag it out just because there’s a book to be made. I think it’s very honorable what they’re doing.”

The show’s final season debuts on Sunday, April 14 on HBO.
