Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, was recently interviewed by Moviefone and was asked whether he has become protective of the character, wanting to keep his nobility intact or if he is open to further evolution of Jon. Harington replied:
“I sort of know where he is now. Next season will be next season, he might go through a big change, I don’t know. He’s dear to me. I’ve lived with him for so long. I think I’ve come into a place of feeling quite emotional about him, actually, knowing that I’m not going to get to go back to him after next year. I’m really trying to just take stock of having lived this sort of dual life with this character, and being through so much with this character. It’s been a strange journey, but I’ll always be fond of it.”
Minor Spoiler ahead.
He also spoke about show outpacing the books and what’s it like to film without the source material from George R.R. Martin. Harington also indirectly revealed that he has in fact survived season 7:
“It’s just amazing, in some ways, having no book to go on, because the scripts come through and you’re completely in the dark about what they’re going to do. Believe me, I just finished Season Seven, and I am already counting down the days until I get the Season Eight scripts. Everyone’s been wondering how it’s going to end, and what’s going to happen right from the get-go, and theorizing about it. It’s really exciting to me not knowing, genuinely having no idea where it’s going to end, what they’ve got in their heads, and being the first to find out.”
