Kit Harington cried when he read the last Game of Thrones episode

Kit Harington says he cried when he read the final episode of Game of Thrones.

The HBO series will be coming to an end in 2019 when it airs its eighth and final season.


While fans may have a while to wait (and are unlikely to be seeing any spoilers), production of the final six episodes has already ended.

Cast and crew were spotted around Northern Ireland last year, while the core cast members completed a table reading of the series finale.

And it turns out Jon Snow no longer knows nothing.


Kit told BBC’s The One Show:

“We had a read through last week in fact, so I know everything now.

“I cried at the end. You have to remember that eight years of it—no one really cares about it more than us.”

But fans may not be shedding tears when things come to an end, as the actor confessed it wasn’t quite the plot that was tear-inducing.


The actor explained:

“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 a strange year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person.

“Not only are you attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it.”
