Come again? Kit Harington’s descriptoon of the final scene of Game of Thrones—of which much ink has already been spilled—is a head-scratcher.
“It couldn’t have been more of a wet fart of a scene,” he told InStyle. Uhhh….?
“I think I got my final day changed about 18 times, to the point where I didn’t know when it was. I was like, ‘Just don’t tell me.’ Then it came, and I had that final scene, which was very average,” he explained. “I was just walking somewhere with Liam [Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth] and Jacob [Anderson, who plays Grey Worm]. It couldn’t have been more of a wet fart of a scene.”
But after the, er, anticlimax, he said he freaked out.
“But I completely broke down after it. I’d seen Peter Dinklage do his last scene earlier in the day, and he broke down. I’d been at other people’s wraps, like Sophie Turner‘s. You just saw them collapse. And it happened to me. It was a beautifully weighted ending. Then it was like, ‘OK, I’m actually done with this show. I love it. It’s my pride and joy, and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of it, but I’m done,'” he said.
Game of Thrones‘ final season premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
Harington says he is looking ahead to his future gig.
“The most important job I’ll ever have is about to finish… Well, not the most. Hopefully I’ll be a father.”
Harington, as fans know, married fellow GOT star Rose Leslie.
“I think almost the worst thing about falling in love with Rose and marrying her is that it’s going to be very hard to work with her again,” he says. “Working opposite her was one of the highlights of my life and career. I don’t know when, if ever, I’m going to get to do that again, because we’re married now, and it’s hard to work opposite your wife.”
