Series regulars Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) were also in attendance, among others.
Lena Headey, who portrays Cersei Lannister, was sick and unable to attend the event, she announced on Instagram.
"Gutted. Heartbroken and [expletive] off, still doesn't cover my disappointment at not being able to travel to NYC for our final prem tonight," she said alongside a selfie.
"I [expletive] hate being sick and the timing of this is a [expletive] bag. But .. S8 is the tits and so are all my cast mates and crew mates and creators... so RIDE FORTH INTO THE NIGHT AND CREATE MAYHEM ... Love you beauties," she continued.
