The final season of Popular TV series Game of Thrones finale is creating so much hype before its release. When fans look back at the previous 7 seasons, there was a myriad of emotions you felt - sadness, dread, joy, elation and a lot more. It is a mixed feeling for the cast members of Game of Thrones, many of whom have been a part of the series for 10 years since the beginning. Speaking to InStyle, Kit Harington who plays Jon Snow revealed that while the previous 10 episode-long seasons were shot in six months, the six episodes of season 8 required nine months.
Kit Harington said, "You’d come in (on prior seasons) for a week and be off for two weeks. But I was there the whole time this year. I barely left Belfast. For the last couple of seasons I’ve done more days than anyone else because of the nature of my character. There are just a lot of the battles and the action sequences.”
Talking about the shooting of last scene of Harington said, "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. I was just walking somewhere with Liam (Cunningham) and Jacob (Anderson, who plays Grey Worm). It couldn’t have been more of a wet fart of a scene, 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, ‘Okay, 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.’”
Fans are very excited about the final season of the GoT as it will answer many questions that who will die and who will sit on the Iron Throne?
