Kit Harington will host Saturday Night Live for the first time.
The NBC sketch comedy series announced in a tweet Wednesday the 32-year-old British actor will host its April 6 episode.
The new episode will feature a performance from singer Sara Bareilles. Harington is the second Game of Thrones actor to host SNL, following Peter Dinklage’s appearance on the show in 2016.
Harington’s episode airs just over a week before Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its eighth and final season. The actor, who plays Jon Snow, said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week he cried after reading the show’s finale.
“I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding. And then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried,” he said. [Source]
