While every member of the Game of Thrones team cried as they began working on the final season, Kit Harington cried more than once. According to Entertainment Weekly's new cover story, Harington did not read the scripts before and then proceeded to cry with the assembled cast and crew at the show's final season table read. The tears came twice that day, once while reading an episode and the second round of sobs came for a very specific reason.
Game of Thrones season 8 will air in April 2019
"The second time was the very end," Harington said, in reference to the last pade of the script of episode six. "Every season, you read at the end of the last script ‘End of Season 1,' or ‘End of Season 2.' This read ‘End of Game of Thrones.'"
Although he did not reveal anything about his final trip to Westeros, apart from the fact that the Winterfell set is huge and there were characters in the series finale that surprised the reporter. There is a big battle coming our way and we will see characters interacting, like they never ever have!
"Having the largest battle doesn't sound very exciting — it actually sounds pretty boring," series co-creator David Benioff said. "Part of our challenge, and really, [director Miguel Sapochnik's] challenge, is how to keep that compelling… we've been building toward this since the very beginning, it's the living against the dead, and you can't do that in a 12-minute sequence."
"I think not everyone's going to be happy, you know, and you can't please everyone. My favorite TV shows are Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and The Wire, and they all ended in a way that...it's never going to satisfy you," said Kit while talking about the ending of show in an earlier interview.
