The actor famed for his portrayal of Jon Snow on the HBO series reveals he came to the table read with the rest of the cast not knowing what is written in the final season script.
Kit Harington cried twice as he read the final-ever “Game of Thrones” script.
The actor, who plays King of the North Jon Snow in the HBO show, admitted he went into the table read with the rest of the cast without having read any of the six scripts beforehand, so found out what happened in real time during the two-day read through last year (17).
“I walked in saying, ‘Don’t tell me, I don’t want to know,’ ” Kit told Entertainment Weekly. “What’s the point of reading it to myself in my own head when I can listen to people do it and find out with my friends?”
And the star, 31, admitted he cried twice in total during the read-through, the second time being the very end of the series.
“The second time was the very end,” he explained. “Every season, you read at the end of the last script ‘End of Season 1’ or ‘End of Season 2’. This read ‘End of Game of Thrones’. And you realise, OK, it’s really happening.”
His co-star and onscreen sister Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, previously admitted that the cast “burst into tears” when they read the final page.
“It was very, very bittersweet,” she confessed. “The first day of the actors coming in and that kind of production starting, the day where we had the final read through for the final script… it was really bittersweet. It was hard.”
“At the end of the very last script, they read aloud, ‘End of Game of Thrones’. As soon as they read that out, pretty much everyone burst into tears.”
The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” will premiere next year (19).
