Kit Harington just admitted that there's one moment from the "Game of Thrones" that "pissed" him off
Kit Harington has revealed which part of the final season of Game of Thrones left him unhappy - because he wanted it for his own character.
The actor, who played Jon Snow throughout the fantasy drama’s eight seasons, admitted he was “a bit pissed off” when Arya Stark killed the Night King (Vladimír Furdík) in “The Long Night”, the third episode of the show’s final instalment.
Maise William’s character famously stabs the Night King to death with her dagger during one final standoff.
“I was a bit pissed off, only because I wanted to kill the Night King!” Harington told The Hollywood Reporter, also admitting to the publication that he "hated" filming dragon riding scenes for the show.
“I think I felt like everyone else did, in that it had been set up for a long time, and then I didn’t get to do it.”
Harington did say he was “so happy for Maisie and Arya”, adding: “I was secretly like, ‘I wanted to do that!’ Especially because I love fighting with Vlad, who also played the White Walker I fought at Hardhome.
“I’ve never seen a better swordsman. But it was a really great twist, and it tied up Maisie’s journey in a really beautiful way.
“Over the seasons, we’ve seen her build up these skills to become this hardened assassin, and she uses it all to kill our main antagonist.”
Harington is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series at the 2019 Emmys for his role in Game of Thrones. Williams is up for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series.
The ceremony will take place on 22 September.
