“Game of Thrones” will officially come to an end for fans when it returns in 2019 with its eighth and final season. Kit Harington revealed on a TV Show that he shed a tear while reading the script for the final season of the show.
Speaking to BBC’s The One Show, Harrington said that the cast of the fantasy hit show read through the script last week in Belfast.
“We had a read through last week in fact, so I know everything now,” he explained. “I cried at the end. You have to remember that eight years of it—no one really cares about it more than us.”
“It’s been an institution longer than any other institution I’ve been in; school, drama school, anything,” he added.
He quickly added that it wasn’t for anything in particular about the finale but that the tears were for sentimental reasons.
“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. Not only you’re attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it,” he said.
Kit, who plays Jon Snow in the hit-series was recently engaged to co-star Rose Leslie who plays Ygritte, with whom he has been in a relationship since 2012.
