The actor says he's "really emotional" about the show coming to an end.
Kit Harington is without a doubt one of the most popular stars to come from the 'Game of Thrones' franchise, playing Jon Snow since the series' conception and truly going through the ringer when it comes to his character's journey. Based on the incomplete novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire' by George R. R. Martin, the show has become one of the most popular on television, with TV network HBO currently working with a variety of writers so that when the series comes to an end, spinoffs can come to life.
Kit Harington has been a main part of 'Game of Thrones' since the very beginning
There are now only six episodes left of the series, with the final season set to debut at some point in 2018, or 2019. Harington's character Jon has been revealed to be a secret Targaryen offspring and the true heir to the Iron Throne, making Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) his aunt. A little awkward when season 7 ended with the pair in bed with each other for the first time.

He said the wrong thing while talking about his proposal.
Accidental double entendres are always embarrassing for celebrities when they slip out on television, but few can beat Kit Harington's major gaffe when he appeared on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' and opened up about his romantic proposal to Rose Leslie. Talk about ruining the moment.

The 'Game of Thrones' star spoke about how his marriage proposal to his co-star Rose Leslie didn't exactly go as planned - though funnily enough, his explanation on what happened during the said moment didn't exactly go as planned either.

An unnerving Western with a sharp female perspective, this film is a series of gruesome surprises from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. Told in four chapters that unfold out of sequence, the film's brutality is almost balletic as it explores the horrors of this rampantly male-dominated society. It's also gripping, and the characters and themes are seriously haunting.
The main setting is a small desert town, where the mute Liz (Dakota Fanning) is the local midwife. She lives with her gentle husband Eli (William Houston), their daughter (Ivy George) and his son (Jack Hollington) from a previous marriage. Then a new Reverend (Guy Pearce) arrives in town, and immediately takes exception to Liz. As their feud escalates, the Reverend preaches hellfire and damnation messages specifically about Liz. He's also secretly stalking her and making threats that escalate into serious nastiness. But all of this is connected to Liz's past as a young girl (Emilia Jones) living in a brothel, and earlier with her mother (Carice van Houton) as she encounters a desperate fugitive (Kit Harington).
The further back we go, the more interconnected everything becomes, with unexpected revelations that link the characters. There are also huge plot twists and earth-shattering events that don't always ring true. All of this is anchored by Fanning in a remarkably alert performance that requires her to convey (or attempt to conceal) her thoughts and feelings with her expressive eyes. Opposite her, Pearce is practically twirling his moustache as the sadistic villain, a terrifying psycho without any other sides to him. Thankfully, he's surrounded by characters who are layered and fascinating, providing both a blast of earthy realism and some very deep emotions.

The couple are set to wed after moving in together.
If it wasn't already so adorable that one of our favourite romances from 'Game Of Thrones' is a real thing, it's now been confirmed that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged to be married after a five year romance. We're sure it will be a stunning wedding.
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie at 'Game of Thrones' premiere
This week it was revealed that the pair - who played on-screen couple Jon Snow and Ygritte in the HBO series - are set to wed just months after they moved in together. It was only last year that they actually confirmed that they were in a relationship.
The characters could be locking lips before we know it...
It looks like the sexual tension we all felt between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen in the most recent episode of 'Game of Thrones' wasn't something we were willing to happen rather than it actually being there, as one of the show's directors has spoken out about the romance that could blossom between the two.
We've not yet seen Jon bend the knee to Daenerys
Whilst everybody at home knows the pair are related by blood, after it was revealed in season 6 that Jon Snow is actually from a Targaryen AND Stark background, the fact Daenerys is Jon's aunt doesn't seem to be slowing down the brewing relationship. In fact, this is a world where incest is frowned upon, but still seems to boil under the surface for many involved.
The actor also discusses who he'd like his character to meet in the near future.
Through six seasons to-date, 'Game of Thrones' has managed to shock viewers with every twist and turn. Based on the currently incomplete George R R Martin novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire', the show has proven that you don't need to keep who viewers think may be your main characters safe in order for your show to be a success. In fact, killing them off comes as second nature in 'Game of Thrones', keeping everybody at home on their toes.
Kit Harington makes his return as Jon Snow in 'Game of Thrones'

Viral video ties in 'GoT' soundbites to the lyrics of Gloria Gaynor classic.
'Game Of Thrones' fans have gotten to experience a wonderful taste of irony with a viral video featuring the cast 'singing' along to Gloria Gaynor's 1978 hit 'I Will Survive'. It must've have taken some 'GoT' lover a long time to put together but it's so worth it.

The actor recalls some of the scenes he had to film for one of season 6's biggest moments.

Martin, the show follows a selection of different wannabe leaders, all vying for control of the fictional land of Westeros, the Seven Kingdoms and beyond.

Kit Harington wasn't there to reitereate his own denial of Snow's continued existence, but he would have been proud of everyone for their insistence.
Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen
The cast of probably the most eagerly anticipated season premiere of this Golden Globe-winning fantasy series yet took to the grey carpet to ring in the arrival of the new episodes, the first of which will air on HBO in two weeks. Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen was among them, as fans continue to fret over what's become of her character. From what we've seen in pictures and trailers so far, Daenerys is stranded after pet dragon Drogon refused to take her back home and has now run into a Dothraki horde.

In the middle of one of his infrequent complaints about his obligations to ‘Game of Thrones’, the 28 year old star seems to have unwittingly revealed that he is signed up for one (or more) future appearances, in an interview with Belgian magazine Humo.
Even though speculation has been rife ever since the finale of season five earlier this year that, although his character was seen being stabbed to death, he may not in fact be gone for good. A worldwide movement has dedicated itself to tracking Harington’s every move and haircut ever since.
