The final season of Game of Thrones may not be hitting until 2019, but the end is already fast-approaching for those involved on the hit series on a production level. Among those is actor Kit Harington, who has played the iconic Jon Snow since Season 1 hit HBO back in 2011.
With the end nearing for Harington, how is he feeling about it? Speaking with Deadline, the actor discussed the immense pressure that goes into finishing up a franchise like this. Here’s what he said:
“Well, I think there’s a certain pressure I’ve not felt before. Whereas before, every year there’s always been a bit of pressure, this season is one where we could easily let people down. Obviously, we don’t want to do that so we’re very much stepping up everyone’s game which is very apparent, at least to me. We’re all growing a bit and I think everyone’s attention is very focused on what we’re doing in a way that it’s always been, but it may be more apparent.
I love it, you know. It’s also I think that thing of just trying to get everything you can out of it while we’re still doing it. Really kind of explore every inch of it.”
We’re sure many fans are thinking the same thing as of right now. Once the final season approaches, there are sure to be plenty of fans who marathon the previous seven seasons, so as to get as much out of the finale as they possibly can. Given the dense material on which the show is based, there are sure to be plenty of extra tidbits and Easter eggs hidden about that are always fun to discover.
