Kit Harington gave the scoop on the filming of the stabbing scene in Game of Thrones, and his opinion on how the Night King died.
The Hollywood Reporter recently did round-up interviews with Emmy nominated actors, and Harington gave GOT fans some insight on the infamous stabbing scene with Jon Snow and Daenerys.
He explains, “We felt a sense of responsibility over it. We shot the hell out of it. It was essentially a page and a half of dialogue, and we spent three weeks filming it. They wanted to shoot every conceivable angle, every way, to make sure they got it the way they wanted it.”
When talking about learning about Daenerys’ fate, he adds, “It was a holy f*** moment. Jaw dropping. I was completely surprised by it, even though you can kind of see the path through the season of how it was getting there – and even the previous couple of seasons before that, once you can look back. But it was still a big shock to me.”
When discussing Arya killing the Night King, Harington says, “I was a bit pissed off, only because I wanted to kill the Night King! I think I felt like everyone else did in that it had been set up for a long time, and then I didn’t get to do it.”
When asked about a prop from the set he wanted to keep, Kit jokes, “I’m still hoping for my sword. But they don’t seem to be sending it to me. I’m still waiting, let’s put it that way. I’m still waiting for my sword, HBO! When is it going to arrive?”
