“I could go on about this for hours,” the Jon Snow actor said about his character’s fate.

Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, has revealed that the show’s controversial ending was right for his character, as he would “never have been happy” on the Iron Throne.

Although a year has passed since the HBO fantasy series came to an end, some fans are still upset with the last episode, which saw Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) become the king of the Seven Kingdoms instead of Jon, who was the actual heir to the Westeros crown.

However, in a video posted on @purple_dwagon’s Twitter page, Harington said that Jon’s place was always north of the wall.

“When people say to me, ‘Oh I wish you had been on the Throne’, or ‘I wish you had been with Dany on the Throne,’ I disagree because Jon’s place was always in the north. He would never have been happy in the south,” he began.

He then compared Jon to his adoptive father Ned Stark, who was executed in the show’s first season. “He’s like Ned Stark. If Ned goes south, he’s in danger. It’s like when Tormund says to [Jon], you’re the north. He belongs north of the wall.”

Although it is unclear when this video interview was filmed, Harington admitted that he hadn’t seen the Game of Thrones’ finale.

“I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know if I managed to pull it off, but what I tried to do with the ending was show he’s been saddled with this weight all the way through the series, and he’s this heavy character, he’s literally got a cloak on and he’s heavy.”

He continued, “and I wanted that last bit for there to be a lightness about him, that it’s all falling off, this terrible thing he’s been through is falling off as he goes north.”

“I could go on about this for hours,” he added. [Source]

During a recent fan interaction on Twitter, Kit Harington broke his silence on The Eternals getting delayed. This Chloé Zhao directorial will see Kit’s big entrance into the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as Dane Whitman aka Black Knight.

One of the exciting 2020 MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) projects that fans were really excited about was The Eternals as it marked a new beginning for the universe and allowed new superheroes to be added to the fold. It’s not just the immortal storyline that has people excited but the fact that so many talented actors are joining the MCU because of the Chloé Zhao directorial. We get to see Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kit Harington and Kumail Nanjiani, amongst others, enter the superhero world for the first time.

While the shoot was taking place in London for a few months with even high-octane action sequences being shot, the production had to be stalled because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, Marvel also had to reshuffle release dates with Black Widow getting The Eternals previously scheduled November 6, 2020 date. During a recent fan interaction on Twitter, Kit answered several questions on Game of Thrones and The Eternals as well. When asked about the latter, the 33-year-old actor revealed, “Well [The Eternals] is done, that’s filmed. It’s just, God knows what happened or what’s going on with it, I have no idea. I don’t know what’s happening with anything right now.”

During a 2019 appearance at ACE Comic Con, Kit spoke candidly about entering the MCU with The Eternals as he shared, “A lot of people who go into something like the MCU, they haven’t had experience of, maybe, a franchise that big. I’ve lived with Thrones for ten years, I’ve known a big franchise and something that’s created a world and it has a huge fan base. So for both reasons, I’m excited and terrified.”

“This is the first time I’ve met people on that level about Marvel and I’m just thrilled. It’s a whole new chapter and a whole new character to start thinking about. Without saying too much at all, on the surface, [Dane Whitman aka Black Knight] can look like Jon Snow in the comics but there is actually a lot to be done that is different,” Harington added.

The Eternals is now slated to release on February 12, 2021. [Source]

The Hollywood Reporter speaks with the erstwhile Jon Snow about representing the HBO drama: “This feels full circle.”

In Game of Thrones’ sixth season, Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, recently brought back to life, stood with sword in hand facing down an army of enemies all on his own. The “Battle of the Bastards” war hero survived that day, and indeed survived the entire series — and for Harington, the actor is once again hitting the battlefield by himself, this time at the 2020 Golden Globes, the lone nominee for Thrones’ final season.

“I’m the ‘loner Throner,’ it seems,” Harington tells The Hollywood Reporter about his nomination, the only one Thrones received for its eighth and final season. “I just imagine myself sitting down at a table all by myself as the ‘loner Throner!'”

Nominated in the best actor category alongside the likes of Succession star Brian Cox and Mr. Robot lead Rami Malek, Harington’s nomination for the final Thrones season marks the actor’s first ever Golden Globes nomination. Calling in from “the cold and wet streets of London,” Harington says he was at home when the nominations rolled out, blissfully unaware “that it was so early in the U.S.” (As he puts it: “I’m looking forward to sunny L.A., I’ll tell you that much.”)

“I didn’t expect to be nominated,” says Harington. “I thought the show might be, but I was just at home, learning lines, and then my publicists called. It was very unexpected and wonderful.”

“Every time I go to say goodbye to this show, something comes along that reminds me of the story of it,” he adds. “This is one of those moments. I have to say thanks to the HFPA for nominating me. We spent a lot of years with this thing. Obviously, I dearly loved it. I loved every moment of it. I loved the character. It’s a weird feeling, but I feel kind of happy for him, the character, if that makes sense.”

Few have had the pleasure of playing around in two of Hollywood’s biggest franchises. After a decade starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Kit Harington is finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’ll make his MCU debut in Chloé Zhao’s The Eternals, a production he’s currently filming. The Game of Thrones alum was on-hand at ACE Comic Con in Chicago Sunday afternoon and while there, he touched on his upcoming Marvel role. According to the new Marvel star, he’s just excited to get involved in another expansive universe.

“I went from a brilliant play which sort of kickstarted my career and Game of Thrones came along and that lasted ten years. As Game of Thrones finished, Marvel came along and so what I’m really excited about is getting involved in a new world and in a new universe,” Harington revealed.

Harington then made sure to point out the experiences he’s had with the various fans that have come through the convention for autographs and pictures.

“Coming here, I can see just how passionate people are about this world,” the actor continued. “This is the first time I’ve met people on that level about Marvel and I’m just thrilled. It’s a whole new chapter and a whole new character to start thinking about. Without saying too much at all, on the surface, [Black Knight] can look like Jon Snow in the comics but there is actually a lot to be done that is different.”

In another recent speaking engagement, Harington said his Eternals characters would be carrying a sword, seemingly confirming the involvement of the Ebony Blade in the upcoming film.

“Now I’m going with a Marvel movie. I’m going on to play a superhero, which is cool. I don’t know what I can say about it, I’m scared to sort of even mention it,” Harington said at first before detailing a play he wanted to join. “I’m trying to choose things as far away from Jon Snow as possible, but I’m playing a superhero and he’s got a sword.” [Source]

Even though production is well underway for Chloé Zhao’s The Eternals, little is known about the storyline of the movie. In fact, to date, we’ve still only got confirmation that Kit Harington would be playing Dane Whitman, with no confirmation from Marvel Studios he’d be making the leap and playing the Ebony Sword-wielding Black Knight within the same movie. Now, it looks like Harington will be going full-on Black Knight, at least if recent comments from the actor are any indication.

During a recent business summit where Harington served as a guest speaker, the panel moderator asked the Game of Thrones alum what was next after an illustrious career on Game of Thrones. That’s when the new Marvel star mentioned his superhero role isn’t unlike that of Jon Snow from the smash-hit HBO show.

“Now I’m going with a Marvel movie. I’m going on to play a superhero, which is cool. I don’t know what I can say about it, I’m scared to sort of even mention it,” Harington said at first before detailing a play he wanted to join. “I’m trying to choose things as far away from Jon Snow as possible, but I’m playing a superhero and he’s got a sword.”

Most Marvel fans would be able to put two and two together and figure out that since Harington has been confirmed as Whitman, he’d be playing Black Knight. After hearing these comments, it appears the long-time Avenger will officially make his debut on-screen next November as not only Dane Whitman, but the Black Knight as well.

The Eternals bows November 6, 2020. The sprawling cast includes Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Ikaris), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), Don Lee (Gilgamesh), Kit Harington (Dane Whitman/Black Knight), Gemma Chan (Sersi), and Barry Keoghan (Druig). Zhao will direct from a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. [Source]

Emilia Clarke wasn’t the only Game of Thrones cast member who had strong feelings about her character Daenerys being killed in the final episode by her lover Jon Snow, who put a knife in her heart while embracing her. Kit Harington spoke to Entertainment Weekly as well about where Jon’s mind was in his final scene with Dany and why he thinks that Game of Thrones isn’t sexist in the way it treated Daenerys and Cersei in its last two episodes.

Clarke and Harington revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Harington hadn’t read the final episode’s script before the cast’s table read. When the moment Jon killed Dany came up, “I looked at Emilia and there was a moment of me realizing, ‘No, no…’” Harington said, and Clarke nodding back sadly ‘yes.’

“He was crying,” Clarke said. “And then it was kind of great him not having read it.”

Harington said this wasn’t a happy ending for Jon; it was a tragedy. “This is the second woman he’s fallen in love with who dies in his arms and he cradles her in the same way,” Harington said. “That’s an awful thing. In some ways, Jon did the same thing to [his Wilding lover] Ygritte by training the boy who kills her. This destroys Jon to do this.”

Harington knew some people wouldn’t be happy with the show’s final episode and Dany’s fate. “I think it’s going to divide,” he said. “But if you track her story all the way back, she does some terrible things. She crucifies people. She burns people alive. This has been building. So, we have to say to the audience: ’You’re in denial about this woman as well. You knew something was wrong. You’re culpable, you cheered her on.’”

He also doesn’t believe the show was sexist, killing off two of its strongest women. “One of my worries with this is we have Cersei and Dany, two leading women, who fall,” he said. “The justification is: Just because they’re women, why should they be the goodies? They’re the most interesting characters in the show. And that’s what Thrones has always done. You can’t just say the strong women are going to end up the good people. Dany is not a good person. It’s going to open up discussion but there’s nothing done in this show that isn’t truthful to the characters. And when have you ever seen a woman play a dictator?” [Source]

‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington says the fourth episode of the eighth and final season of the HBO series is one of his personal favourites.

The 32-year-old actor, who plays the fan favourite Jon Snow in the epic fantasy show, said the latest chapter is very Shakespearean as it has certain “twisted and uncomfortable” elements in it.

“One of my favourite episodes is four because the characters have seemingly got what they needed. The world is safe now. They’re celebrating and saying goodbye to lost friends.

“But as an audience you’re going, ‘This is only episode four, something’s going to happen.’ And that’s the cool thing because I think the characters are aware of this as well. There’s something twisted and uncomfortable about it. It’s so Shakespearean,” Harington told Entertainment Weekly.

Earlier, Emilia Clarke had said that people need to prepare for episode five as it would perhaps be bigger than the Battle of Winterfell last week.

“(The next episodes) are going to be mental. Episode five is bigger. Episode five is ahhhh. I mean four and five and six, they’re all insane, but…” Clarke told Jimmy Kimmel on his chat show. [Source]

In Variety‘s March 19 cover story, Kit Harington opens up about the final season of “Game of Thrones” and growing into adulthood as part of the biggest show on television. In a conversation in London in December, Harington opened up about the similarities between the series’ politics and our own.

“I think it’s always been about two things for me,” says Harington. “About dysfunctional families — or families in general, always where the best drama is — and the everlasting idea that people who seek power are very often the last people who should have it. Unfortunately, we’re leaving ‘Thrones’ with a Joffrey as the President of the United States of America.” (Joffrey, the mad boy-king who is killed in the fourth season, has drawn frequent comparisons to Donald Trump.)

“I’m deeply sad of the state of the world as ‘Thrones’ ends. Because if it was prophetic, you’d hope that people would have watched ‘Thrones’ and tried to avoid some of the situations these characters find themselves in, and I feel like we are living in a more ‘Thrones’-like world.”

Harington also addressed the degree to which “Thrones” could be controversial, raising questions over time about, for instance, its depiction of female characters and the gauntlet of violence and assault certain of them were put through.

“I think it’s an amazing fantasy, because it deals with incredibly difficult and varied, very human characters. It has incredibly complex female and male characters in it. It was controversial, very controversial at times, but it asks questions of its audience and it asks questions of its viewership,” he says. “And so in that way it did what dramas should do, and it raised the idea of what fantasy could be. That could seem less important than other things, but it’s always been sneered upon, the fantasy genre, as being less important. But I think it’s an amazing genre and a genre with endless scope.” That scope includes, perhaps, a depiction of leadership with endless real-world resonances. [Source]

In an interview with Zoe Ball on her BBC radio show the British actor admitted that he was hanging onto the ominous keepsake.

“I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt? I kept it,” he said. “They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed. How sad is that? I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am. I’m going to turn it into a water feature.”

The statue appears in a teaser for the eighth season which landed last weekend. In it we see Jon Snow carrying a flaming torch down a tunnel in the underground crypt at Winterfell before being joined by Sansa and Arya.

At the end of the corridor they each stand face to face with statues of fallen family members Ned Stark, Catelyn Stark, and Lyanna Stark ( Jon’s real mother)—before arriving at their own graves.

In the same interview Harington also admitted that he wasn’t totally happy with the ending but felt satisfied with it. “Hopefully it’ll change TV again like it did originally” he said.

If not at least he’s got the statue of him to remember the good times. [Source]

Kit Harington’s reaction to the big Game of Thrones season eight finale shows that has finally fully mind-melded with Jon Snow.

He’s “not happy, but very satisfied” with how it all ends for Jon and the gang, which is an extremely grumpy northerner way to put it. He reckons the finale will knock some heads back, too.

“I’m so excited for people to see it,” Harington told Zoe Ball on her radio show yesterday. “I think it’s going to be extraordinary, hopefully it’ll change TV again like it did originally, and break boundaries. I think it might.”

Harington also said that the whole experience of finishing up the show has left him feeling at a bit of a loose end, and admitted that he’s feeling some “grief” that it’s all over.

“It’s like when you finish a book, you’re not happy it’s over are you? You don’t finish a good book and say, ‘I’m happy I finished that’,” Harington said. “But you have this grief that it’s over, and it’s the exact same with nine years doing this show. No matter how it ended, or how it does end, there’s always this bit of you that’s like, ‘oh’; there’s this loss around it.” [Source]
