Kit Harrington is almost as excited as you for Game of Thrones' return. The actor, who plays Jon Snow in the HBO fantasy, series says he is connected with his character on an emotional level and the coming season might see his character go through a major change. So, is he finally turning into a White Walker? We mean, it would be pretty cool.
"I sort of know where he is now. In the 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," says Kit, who is clearly nervous about the show's upcoming season. "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," adds Kit, whose Jon Snow stint ends the next year with GoT's eighth and final season.
"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," says TV's Jon, who might find out more details about his parentage in the new season.
The seventh season of the popular fantasy drama series will premiere on July 16. It will be back in India on Star World, Star World HD and Star World Premiere HD. The new season of GoT is already in the news for its Ed Sheeran cameo, Sansa's possible death, Daenerys's entry in Westeros and the Jon-Dany storyline. We wonder if his relationship with Dany is the element of change Kit is referring to? Or is it the White Walker theory again? Let's just root for Jon 'White Walker' Snow for now.
"Everyone's been wondering how it's going to end, and what's going to happen right from the get-go, and theorising 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," says Kit, the true-blue GoT nerd.
