To anyone who kept tabs on all things Game of Thrones, the final season was the one to watch. The final season was only six episodes long, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere, but it did the job of keeping the world talking about it on a daily basis. While the world watched every episode of the show with an almost addictive style, not everyone was making sure to watch the episodes as they were coming out, including some of the show's very own actors.
Kit Harington, also known to us as Jon Snow, was at the Primetime Emmy Awards along with the rest of the cast when he was asked about the final season. In order to avoid answering or getting into trouble by answering too much, he found a way to avoid the trouble. “I still haven’t seen the show. So that’s how I dealt with that controversy — I haven’t seen the final season but I know what it took to shoot it. It was hard and all of them put their love and effort into it,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “Controversy, I think for us, we knew what we were doing was right, storywise, and we knew that it was right for the characters because we lived with them for 10 years. Controversy for us didn’t really affect us.”
Kit was a part of the show from the very beginning of it all in 2011. This was the show that made Kit famous. He won a Gold Derby TV Award as part of his many accolades for the character of Jon Snow. As for figuring out what was going to happen in the final season, Kit said he only found out while at the table reading. “They just sent us the scripts and we all read them. I didn’t read them until I got to the table read, ’cause I wanted just to listen to it. I thought, There’s no point in reading it when I can hear the actual actors speaking out loud,” he said to Esquire. “So yeah, that was the first time we knew what was happening this season and the fates of our characters. I think it hit everyone very personally around that table when a character didn’t make it. There was a kind of tear in people’s eyes, and we’d look up at the other actors and be like [mimes a salute] for, you know, whoever it was that had gone.”
