Game of Thrones” actors discussed the upcoming season of the HBO drama at the Emmy Awards this past weekend.

Actress Lena Headey, who portrays vicious queen Cersei, told Access Hollywood “the stakes are higher than they ever have been.”

Kit Harington, who plays Night’s Watch soldier Jon Snow, said he’s been getting more experience in makeup this season with a new scar his character will be sporting from an attack in the last episode.

“My face is not okay,” he said in an interview with Access Hollywood. “It’s far from okay. I have to have scars this season… He’s a bit in the wars, old Jon Snow. And it doesn’t get any easier this season.”

However, Harington said the romance between his character Jon and the wildling Ygritte is far from over.

“Me and Rose, who plays Ygritte, we’re as close to a love story as you get in the show,” he said. “You have to follow that up and see what happens this season.”

(Spoilers follow for season three…)

Actor Peter Dinklage, who portrays Cersei’s brother Tyrion, told Access Hollywood how much he’s enjoying working with actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark. Tyrion and Sansa were married near the end of the third season, though the step was not either character’s first choice.

“It’s respectful,” Dinklage said of their relationship. “It’s not filled with passion… I’m working with [Sophie] a great deal and I love every minute of that. She’s incredible.”
