Kit Harington revealed recently in an interview with GQ Italy that he wouldn’t star in a Game Of Thrones spin-off even if there were one planned. In June of 2017, HBO, the network responsible for the successful series, revealed that a prequel was in talks and was weighing five different themes for its plot and style.
When speaking with reporters from the magazine, Kit said even though sequels and prequels are probably coming down the tube soon, he is “not going to be involved.”
Harington explained that one of the reasons for HBO’s discontinuation of the series is the casting has become immensely expensive, a cost which they’re no longer willing to bear.
Fortunately for the network, they could always just create a new show that is set three hundred years prior and “save a lot of money,” said Harington who plays Jon Snow.
As it was previously reported, Deadline revealed in June of 2016 that Kit Harington and many of his other co-stars would be paid half-a-million dollars per episode, a salary which compares to the amount Charlie Sheen received during the height of Two-And-A-Half-Men.
The payout for each episode of the series is tremendous, undoubtedly forcing the studio to halt production of the epic-drama. The last season is slated to premiere in 2019, and fans are looking forward to enjoying the final parts of the cult-TV show.
Regarding his future, Kit explained that he might star in more movies, TV Shows, or even take some time off to spend with his fiancée, Rose Leslie, who is one of his co-stars.
Perhaps, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Kit to take time away from acting, as the last time we heard from him was when he had to be escorted out of a bar for drunken and disorderly behavior.
