NEW YORK - The cast and creators of "Game of Thrones" walked their last red carpet together on Wednesday, recalling memories of their years working on the international hit television series.

Dozens of actors, many of whom were unknown before the medieval fantasy series began in 2011, flew to New York ahead of the eighth and final season of the show, which arrives on HBO on April 14.

Sophie Turner, who was just 14 when she began her role as Sansa Stark, said she would miss the months of filming outdoors in freezing weather in Northern Ireland.

"Some of the fondest memories I have are of all of us snuggled up in warm coats trying to get warm," she said.

"That camaraderie that we've built from just being so like cold and so wet... they were the most exciting times because it was how we really bonded as a cast."

Turner said she had kept one of her character's corsets as a souvenir. Pilou Asbaek (Euron Greyjoy) and Conleth Hill (Varys) said they kept some rings, while Richard Dormer held on to Beric Dondarrion's trademark eye patch.

"Game of Thrones" has won multiple Emmy awards and is HBO's biggest hit ever with some 30 million viewers in the United States and an army of devoted fans worldwide.

The series, set among warring families in the fictional kingdom of Westeros, is based on novels by George R.R. Martin in a series called "A Song of Ice and Fire."

Plot details of the final season have been kept strictly secret although filming started in October 2017.
