Kit Harington Cried When He Read The Script For GoT Season Eight

Kit Harington Cried When He Read The Script For GoT Season Eight

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.” Well, strictly speaking, that’s not actually true anymore.

"You know nothing, Jon Snow."

Well, strictly speaking, that's not actually true anymore, because now Kit Harington knows everything...well, everything that happens in season eight of the show, at least.

The Game of Thrones star claimed that when he read through the script for the first time he ended up getting very emotional.

Not surprising really though, is it? After all, it will be the end of an era.

The cast read the script for the final season through last week and Kit went on The One Show to tell us all how he felt about it.

"I'm really emotional about [the end]," Harington told the hosts. "We had the read-through last week, in fact, so I know everything now.

"I cried at the end! It wasn't anything particular that happens.

"You have to remember, I've done eight years of it. I think, no-one really cares about [Game of Thrones] more than us... It's been an institution longer than any other institution I've been in school, drama school, anything.

"I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It's going to be to a strange year. Saying goodbye to everyone, having your last scene with this person or having your last scene with that person. Not only you're attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it."


In a separate interview, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jamie Lannister spoke about his character's decision to declare his independence from Cersei in the final episode of season seven and what he expects from the next chapter.

"It's built up obviously over for some time. I think that it's that whole thing of seeing is believing, and he kind of got the fact that this was bigger than any of them, this threat," Coster-Waldau told Indie Wire.

"There's only one answer to this conundrum we all face... Obviously he's called The Oathbreaker [before] but he's still a man of his word, and the fact that he promised and he gave his word [to fight] means something to him. He's had enough at this point. This is just too much. If you're not willing to do the right thing, then I will. He left. He's gone."

It's a sad time for fans but it's also hugely exciting and we certainly can't wait to see what will happen in Westeros as things draw to a close.

Still, we've got a little while to wait just yet, as season eight is still in production and is expected to air on HBO in late 2018 or 2019.
