Actor Kit Harington has put a full stop to rumors of his character Jon Snow appearing in the Game of Thrones universe after the show’s eighth and final season. He has confirmed that he won’t be making a return in any of the show’s prequels in future.
During a recent interview with BBC to promote his appearance in a London production of the play True West, Harington described what Game of Thrones ending meant to him. He said it was quite emotional for him to bid a goodbye to the show and the Game of Thrones family, but, now, that he has finally quit he doesn’t want to do more of it in future. The actor added that he is not sad about moving on with his career and has vowed to never return to the show.
“It was emotional to leave the job definitely,” Harington told BBC. “But I wouldn’t say I was sad: if like me you go all the way back to the pilot of Game of Thrones that’s almost 10 years of your life – that’s really unusual in an actor’s career. It was a huge emotional upheaval leaving that family. But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life.”
When asked if he would ever consider doing a cameo or a small appearance in the prequel, might be as an ancestor of his Game of Thrones character, he said a big no.
HBO is currently at work on a prequel which will be set centuries before Game of Thrones. The show, which has been tentatively called “The Long Night,” is currently in the casting stage with Naomi Watts already confirmed to star. It will begin filming in February next year. Game of Thrones will return for its eighth and final season in April 2019.
