If you’re curious about how things are going unfold during the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones, don’t ask Kit Harrington (aka Jon Snow) as he apparently doesn’t have a clue.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been hit with LOADS of news from/about Westeros. Not only did we get a premiere date for the seventh season of Game of Thrones, but we also found out the show’s upcoming eighth (and final) season would be getting a shorter run. Speaking during a panel at SXSW festival, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed that Season 8 would consist of only six (!) episodes (although it wasn’t confirmed how long each episode would be so EVERYONE JUST CALM DOWN *breathes heavily*). Basically, the end is in sight…
Well, if you were wondering whether you might be able to squeeze some spoilers out of a certain Kit Harrington (or Jon Snow), you might find yourself a bit let down.
Speaking during an interview with Moviefone, Harrington revealed that, despite working on the show, he has no idea how it’s all going to end, but that made it all the more exciting.
“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,” he said, referring to the fact that the author of the books from which the show is based, George RR Martin, is now behind the TV show.
“Believe me, I just finished Season 7, and I am already counting down the days until I get the Season 8 scripts.”
Continuing, he added:
Ugh, WE’RE SO JEALOUS!
Harrington also teased what we could expect for Jon Snow when Game of Thrones returns for it’s seventh season.
“I sort of know where he is now,” Harrington teased. “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 felling quite emotional about him, actually, knowing that I’m not going to get to go back to him after next year.”
All of this teasing is not good for us!
Luckily, there’s not too long until Game of Thrones returns. The show is set to premiere on HBO on July 16th.
