Game of Thrones is one of the most popular television series to ever air on HBO. Its next season will be its last and star Kit Harington knows exactly how the massive, multi-character, multi-story show will end.
Harington has risen from complete obscurity to become one of the most recognizable faces on television. His career will be quite plentiful with this show on his resume. But he, like so many others, is sad to see the sensational hit come to an end.
He’s been playing the character of Jon Snow for almost eight years and he’s become increasingly tied to his colleagues and everyone who works on the set.
He’s even set to marry actress, Rose Leslie, who he met when she briefly played his love interest on the show.
During a recent interview with Jon Snow on BBC’s The One Show, Harington got candid regarding his knowledge of just how the show will end. He says the final read through happened recently with the entire cast and he admits that he cried at the end.
As such a huge integral part of his life that this show has been, it’s no surprise he became emotional when reading the final scenes.
What fans really want to know is who will die and who will reign supreme as the one who gets to sit on the iron throne. Harington explained his reaction by saying:
“You have to remember that eight years of it no one really cares about it more than us. I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It’s going to be a strange year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person.”
He and the rest of the cast, as well as the entire production crew, have put so much blood, sweat, tears and turmoil into making that show what it is. From filming in freezing and obscure locations to the character death toll raising abruptly and often.
Game of Thrones will certainly go down as one of the most electrifying and talked about television shows of our time.
