Game of Thrones fans have a long wait ahead of them before Season 8 airs on HBO. While it sucks we may have to wait until 2019 to see all our favorite characters back in action again, there are ample opportunities to see some of your favorite stars between now and whenever Season 8 finally makes its way to television. Check out the list below for where Game Of Thrones' stars can be seen next while we wait for their return to Westeros.
Gwendoline Christie (Brienne Of Tarth)
As many Star Wars fans undoubtedly know, Gwendoline Christie will return to the silver screen later this year as Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While unquestionably her biggest role leading up to Season 8 of Game of Thrones, Christie is also currently filming another potentially big project from Robert Zemeckis. Titled The Women Of Marwen, Christie will star alongside Steve Carell in what is said to be an action-packed film. Finally, Christie is also filming The Darkest Minds, which is a science fiction film about superpowered children being placed in internment camps. The latter two films are expected to release in 2018.

Kit Harington (Jon Snow)
While he may be King in the North on Game of Thrones, Kit Harington will be trying to destroy the monarchy later this year in Gunpowder. In this upcoming miniseries on The BBC, Harington plays Robert Catesby who is believed to be the mastermind behind the Gunpowder Plot. In addition to his television role, Harington is also returning to the silver screen to star alongside Jessica Chastain in The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. With stars like Natalie Portman, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, and Jacob Tremblay attached, one can speculate this will be Harington's shot at film success after the literal and figurative disaster that was Pompeii.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister)
Fans of the Kingslayer won't have much to hold them over until Nikolaj Coster-Waldau makes his return to Game of Thrones, but the actor does currently have one foreign film in the works that sounds interesting. In Domino, Coster-Waldau stars alongside Carice van Houten (aka Melisandre) as the two play cops hunting down the killer of their fellow cop who was gunned down in the line of duty. The big draw here, at least for American audiences, is two GoT actors playing cops, but with Brian De Palma directing, this is definitely one film audiences should keep an eye out for. Unfortunately, no release date for Domino has been announced as of yet.
