Kit Harington teases Season 7 in an interview, says it will 'break boundaries'

Game of Thrones Season 7 has been on a delayed schedule as compared to all earlier seasons, with the filming having finished at the end of February. It is the first season to have it filming continue into the same year as that of the premiere. The premiere date of Season 7 was announced to be July 16th, recently, and it seems like we haven’t quite seen the last of the hype. Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, took the responsibility of hyping up the next season, in an interview recently. Read on!

In a phone interview with The Huffington Post, Kit talked about Season 7 of Game of Thrones. Firstly, he was asked if Season 7 was “worth it.” He responded saying :

“Yes, I’m gonna say, ‘Yes.’ I mean I hope it is. I certainly did more this season than I’ve ever done. I think every actor on it did more action, had more action, had more scenes. They really focused it because less characters are coming in, and they’re focusing in on the existing ones, and there are lots of people who cross paths, and that’s something that I think the audience has been waiting for for a long time.”

He went on to say :

“They spent an increasing amount of money on less episodes, so it’s gonna be much bigger in scale, the CGI … we’re trying new things, experimenting with new camera techniques. I think we’re trying to break boundaries and push past boundaries in these final two seasons.

You have to live up to the hype that’s surrounded the show and the worst thing would be to end without really pushing and trying new things. Even if it’s a failure, at least trying to go out with a bang.”

Kit has been taking on a fair share of projects other than Game of Thrones, but he seemed aware of the fact that Jon Snow will be sticking to him as he moves forward with his career. He said :

“Most roles I go into I have the same appearance, so you’re never going to drift completely away from a viewer who’s watched ‘Thrones’ and loves ‘Thrones.’ They’re always going to see an element of me, which is the character of Jon Snow. I’m never going to get away from that so, for me, I don’t try and fight against a character like Jon Snow.”

He said that he was, however, trying to play a range of characters, to avoid getting typecast. Talking about his latest project, Brimstone, which is a horror film starring Dakota Fanning who plays a woman being pursued and haunted by a man, played by Guy Pearce. The movie also stars Carice van Houten, who played Melisandre on Game of Thrones, and is the real life partner of Guy Pearce. Kit plays an antihero character named Samuel. Talking about this, he said :

“I spend half the year playing a surly hero, and the other half of the year I quite like trying a different type of character, and this, he’s a short but powerful part of the film in the girl’s life, and he’s an antihero, but she changes him and he leaves the film trying to save her. I found that really interesting. Brief, but really interesting character development to explore.”

Looks like the King in the North is picking his battles carefully! What do you think is happen to Jon Snow in Season 7? Talk to us in the comments, below!

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Game of Thrones deleted scenes have been pouring out on the internet, now that the full series disc sets are here. We have reported about a couple of them, including one that showed Daenerys get the northern hate. The one we have today, comes from IGN, and it shows a death scene that was skipped from the episode, likely because the character isn’t considered that important. Read on!

Now, the character we’re talking about here is Alys Karstark, and the episode in question is Season 8, Episode 3, “The Long Night”. This deleted scene shows Alys meet her end while trying to protect Bran Stark in the Godswood. Check it out:

Well, it looks like Theon Greyjoy wasn’t the only guy that lost his life trying to look out for Bran Stark, and Alys deserves at least some credit for being one of the many to buy enough time for Arya Stark to swoop in and save the day.

This could’ve easily been kept in the episode. I mean, it’s game of Thrones, and it’s the most important big battle of the show. Surely one more death couldn’t have hurt.

Sophie Turner discusses her final Game of Thrones scene as Sansa Stark

Game of Thrones deleted scenes and special feature types are flying all over the Internet, now that HBO has released the full series disc sets of the show. We have been reporting about many of these, and this one involves Sophie Turner discuss her final scene on the show as Sansa Stark. Read on!

The video was posted to Twitter, and it shows Sophie, dressed as Sansa, discuss her final scene on the show. Take a gander:

Sophie said:

“I think it was just so overwhelming, and I kind of kept reading and re-reading, and I felt a bit numb afterwards because I never thought I would be reading the final scene.”

Now, knowing Game of Thrones, there was always a risk that a major character could just drop dead, and Sophie feared this for Sansa as well. However, as we now know, she made it to the end, and she did really well. Speaking of that, Sophie said:

“It’s very gratifying. It’s great that she ends up being Queen in the North, and I think it’s the place where she really feels like she belongs. And I think it’s a really just, happy, good ending for her, which I was never expecting.”

Well, we know that was one character ending that we absolutely loved. What about you guys? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Daenerys gets the northern hate in deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones series disc sets are here, and we have seen deleted scenes from the show flood the internet as a result of that. Among these, was one showed Daenerys and Jon walk through Winterfell. Read on!

This scene fits into the timeline at the point when Winterfell is preparing for the battle. Jon and Daenerys take a walk through, looking at the preparations, and Daenerys gets some hateful looks from the Northeners. Check it out:

This actually would have fit well in the preparation sequence, and added to the overall unwelcomeness that we saw Daenerys get in the north in Season 8. It wasn’t necessary though, and probably why it was left out. We also saw Daenerys’ unsullied stop for her, but we didn’t really need to be reminded of their loyalty, making the scene even less required.

That being said, they could have just left it in. Not like we would complain about too much of Game of Thrones, right?
