Kit Harington Cried His Face Off at the Ending of Game of Thrones

Kit Harington is still having a lot of feelings about the coming end of Game of Thrones. I love Kit Harington and his wholly un-Jon-Snow-like cheekiness and his voluminous feelings.


He admitted that all his theories about the end were wrong—refusing to supply ANY wrong endings, lest they help us get closer to the correct ending through process of elimination—and said that at one table read, where he was the only person who hadn’t read the ending, he up and cried: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

He also talked to Colbert about the fur and whether he will miss it (he won’t): “It weighs a ton, it smells awful,” he admitted. “Whenever we went out there and you put it on, you feel back in the character again. That’s great. But everything else about it—I think they added weight to it every year.”

And finally, he suggested that, were he dropped into Westeros for real, he’d probably move somewhere like Dorne: “All the other actors would come back from Croatia and they’d be like, oh it was great, we had these silk costumes, we took em off, we went skinny dipping at the end of the day with our margaritas. And I’ve been in the rain and the mud with my 15 kilogram costume on for three months.” No wonder Jon Snow never stops pouting!

Seen here, Kit Harington, blubbing his eyes out:

I jest, but I do have to say that I wish the writers of the show had given poor Kit and Emilia stronger material to work with. I happen to be in the minority that thinks that Kit and Emilia frequently make good acting choices when given the chance. It’s just that the writers are too cynical to really pack a lot in to the “traditional fantasy protagonist” role that they’ve clearly opted for at this point, and as a result, Kit and Emilia take a lot of undeserved crap for their lack of acting talent, when they’re really being given the dregs of the writing and acting opportunities.
