On the other hand, Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Bran Stark in the series, he commented that the ambiguity at the end of the series was the key point that would make it be remembered for all time as one of the best television endings:

One of the most intelligent things about this ending is that it does not end in an extremely clear way ... It is the chaos in the kingdom (...) It is not definitively closed, and it leaves room for interpretation.

One of the moments that generated laughter in the whole place was when the actors joked about one of the scenes of the final season, where you can witness a glass of Starbucks. John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) joked that he apologized for being thirsty and for having a glass similar to this franchise.
