As you can probably imagine, there’s a lot of anticipation for Game of Thrones season 8. HBO’s celebrated TV series won’t be back for over a year and yet fans are dying to find out clues about what the upcoming season will bring. Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow, has said that the upcoming season of Game of Thrones is going to be bigger than ever.
Kit Harington’s Jon Snow is one of the most crucial characters in Game of Thrones. It’s also one of the few characters that have managed to stay alive since the very first season. That only underscores the importance of Jon Snow in the grand scheme of things.
Speaking with Time, Harington said that “It’s a lot of–it’s just bigger than it’s ever been!” It is sinking in, it’s just quite emotional.” The actor will be in Belfast later this week to shoot some scenes for the upcoming season.
Harington will finish filming his scenes for Game of Thrones season 8 in 2018. Don’t expect him to drop any plot spoilers, though. Given the leak problem that HBO had to deal with, reports have suggested that security has been really dialed up to prevent any leaks concerning the next season.
HBO is yet to confirm when the next season of Game of Thrones will premiere. Reports suggest that it will either be by the end of 2018 or early 2019.
