Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington has told fans the hit TV fantasy epic gets “very dark before it gets better”.
The 29-year-old Londoner, who has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmys for his role as Jon Snow in the series, talked to the Hollywood Reporter about what’s in store for his character and the rest of the cast.
“It’s important to stress at this point that I haven’t had any scripts, so this is all guess work for me,” said Harington. “I think it’s going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending.
“If there’s any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else. I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that’s going to be exciting to see.”
The English actor added that he didn’t know what “winter is finally here” meant in relation to the storyline. “I think with the whole “winter is finally here” business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time,” he said.
Season seven of Game Of Thrones will air in summer 2017, with the final season showing in 2018.
