This is Kit Harington’s unique way of dealing with the controversy surrounding the Game of Thrones final season.
Harington attended the Emmy awards on Sunday. While there, the Jon Snow revealed that he hasn’t even seen the final season of Game of Thrones. The show was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series along with Better Call Saul, Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Ozark, Pose, Succession, and This Is Us.
He told reporters, “I’ll tell you something… What was it? Controversy. I still haven’t seen the show. That’s how I go about controversy. I haven’t seen the final season,” Harington reveals. “But I know what it took to shoot it. And it was — it was hard and everyone put all of their love and effort into it.”
However, he still defended the direction and acting that went into the show. He said, And controversy, I think for us — we knew what we were doing was right story-wise,” Harington says. “And we knew that it was right for the characters because we lived with them for 10 years. And I think that kind of set — controversy for us didn’t really affect us.”
One of Game of Thrones‘ co-creators David Benioff said, “You know honestly, I think part of it is just we’ve been working together for so long and I know it’s a cliche of show business to say that it’s become a family, but it truly feels that way.”
He added, “As (co-creator D.B. Weiss) said on stage before, a lot of people standing up here grew up on the show and the rest of us grew old on the show and it’s a genuine, loving community.”
He also revealed what the hardest part about the ending of the show. He said, “And I think the hardest part for us is that it’s over and then we’re not going to be working with them again, at least in the short term. But the fun of it is that we’re here and you know we get to celebrate. So I think it’s just very — it’s gonna make for a much more fun night.”
Game of Thrones now has a total of 50 Emmy wins. This year, it won 12 out of the 32 nominations that it was up for.
