We may have to wait until April 14 for the debut of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” but Wednesday, HBO released photos from the final season. First photos of Kit are online and you can go to the gallery to take a look.
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.

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]
The arrival of winter in Westeros made the final season of “Game of Thrones” especially grueling, says Jon Snow himself, aka Kit Harington.
The Emmy-nominated “Game of Thrones” star told GQ Australia that filming Season 8 of the HBO series, set to premiere in April 2019, was excruciating.
“The last season of ‘Thrones,’ ” he told the outlet, “seemed to be designed to break us”.
“Everyone was broken at the end,” Harington, 32, added. “I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so (expletive) tiring.
“We were sleep-deprived,” he continued, “It was like it was designed to make you think, Right, I’m (expletive) sick of this. I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, ‘I’ve had enough now. I love this, it’s been the best thing in my life, I’ll miss it one day – but I’m done.’ ”
The English actor emphasized how excited he is to be at home more, with his former “Game” co-star, Rose Leslie, whom he wed in June.
“I think people who don’t work in film or TV don’t (realize) quite how disorientating it is, being away from home all the time,” he explained. “Coming (to the hotel) today, and seeing all the people cycling into work, it seemed in my head a real luxury. Which must sound mad. But the process of going to work, having a day with your colleagues, coming back to your family, cooking, having stuff in the fridge … It sounds odd to say but it’s the thing I’m looking forward to most. After nine years, I’ll be at home. In one place. Static.”
Harington is grateful to the show for bringing his bride into his life.
Back on the London stage in Sam Shepard’s classic ‘True West’, Kit Harington talks rowdy audiences, sibling rivalry and the end of ‘Game of Thrones’
Curled up in an old leather rehearsal-studio swivel-chair that he seems to have formed some sort of emotional attachment to (he even tells me how much he loves it), Kit Harington is tired but palpably happier than the last time I interviewed him. Perhaps it’s because he’s enjoying playing, Austin, the neurotic younger brother to Johnny Flynn’s deadbeat elder sibling, Lee, in Sam Shepard’s iconic 1980 drama ‘True West’. Or maybe it’s because he doesn’t have to lie about Jon Snow not being in the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’, which is wrapped and airs next summer.
Why did you choose to do ‘True West’?
‘I wanted to do a two-hander where me and another actor shared the stage for the bulk of the time. And what I love about Austin is the opportunity to play somebody incredibly highly strung and neurotic; that’s not a part that’s usually offered to me. Austin has a complete fucking breakdown, and that’s always fun to play.’
How have you got on with Johnny Flynn?
‘Really well! I know it would be more interesting to say I hate him. But that’s the risk; the nature of the role is that Lee is bullying Austin a lot of the time, so if you don’t get on with that other actor it can become very, very difficult. But he’s such a calm, interesting guy. There would be something wrong with you if you didn’t like Johnny Flynn.’
