In an interview with BBC's "The One Show" (via People Magazine) on Friday, Kit Harington, who portrays Jon Snow/recently revealed to actually be Aegon Targaryen on the series, admitted that the cast all read through the final script last week, and when they finished, he got more emotional than he had initially thought he would.

Kit Harington has become a global superstar thanks to his performance of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones.

Fans will have a longer wait to find out what happens, although there will only be six episodes in the final season. "School, drama school, anything", he explained. "I get a bit weepy thinking about it", he continued. It's going to be a unusual year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person. "Not only are you attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it". And he has been sworn to secrecy by the show's producers.

"[I was told], 'Don't tell them when you're filming".

"There's a lot of things you can't do".

But it seems his character will be one he finds it hard to separate from - especially in light of his recent revelation that he went to a fancy dress party dressed as Jon Snow because his fiancé Rose forced him to.

Although he said he once confronted Weinstein over an allegation, he added: "I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard". The actress says she turned down another advance by Weinstein not long after the massage incident and he threatened her career.

The duo got engaged in September and Harington recently made the official announcement of their engagement in The Times.

"I know everything now", he said.

We're (basically) forever away from the finale of Game of Thrones, but honestly?

Kit Harington's new BBC drama Gunpowder began on BBC1 last night, telling the true story of the men behind the famed Gunpowder Plot including Harington's own ancestor Robert Catesby, and attracting praise for its high production values and tense storytelling.

The hit fantasy series, which also stars Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, and Emilia Clarke, will conclude at the end of season eight, which is due to premiere in either 2018 or 2019.
