Kit Harington says fans will be emotionally torn when Game of Thrones ends

Published

Game of Thrones Season 8 is underway. And, we’ve got the airing date with the new teaser Dragonstone. As we come closer to April, more and more interviews surface. Where it was Lena Headey talking to Jimmy Kimmel Live about the new season, this time it’s Kit Harington.

Kit Harington – who has played the lead Aegon ‘Jon Snow’ Targaryen since the first season of Game of Thrones – recently had an interview with Sky News. There he shared his feeling when saying a goodbye to Game of Thrones and his latest ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ film

Talking about the ending of Game of Thrones, Kit said that it would leave the fans ‘emotionally torn’. The same thing has been teased by several other stars like Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) who believes that fans will have to take a therapy after watching the new season. Yet mean that the season is truly going to be epic with intense CGI and battle sequences.

“[It’s going to be] emotional for everyone watching and everyone who was involved..It’s going to be… just the whole thing ending, it’s finishing, it’s wrapping up, a bit like these movies are…being a part of these movies and finishing this side of my dragon movies, and then the other big one in my life finishing as well…I think viewers are going to be quite emotionally torn about it ending.”

Yet these emotions aren’t the only thing Kit Harington talked about. He also shared his plans for the finale:

“I think I’m going to have a party…Oh, I don’t know yet… I don’t know if I want to watch it on my own quietly just myself, or whether I’ll have a party and watch it with lots of other people…I just can’t really decide that yet.”

Lastly, he also talked about his latest movie ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. He talked about getting used to filming with dragons (Does that mean…?). He said:

“I work with dragons a lot, it seems, all different types and sizes and shapes…Which is wonderful… I mean, bizarre. I don’t know how that happened in my life…I hope it’s not the end of working with dragons.”

Comparing Dragons on Game of Thrones with the ones in How to Train Your Dragon franchise, Kit revealed:;

“The ones on Thrones are a bit grumpy…These ones are naughty, but I think slightly more friendly to humans.”

“I love working on this film because your part is an even smaller cog than usual in that you’ve got these incredible animators and this huge team of people that make what you’re doing look really good, which is a wonderful thing.”

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
