Kit Harington says he ‘f***ing broke down’ when Game of Thrones wrapped

Kit Harington has revealed that he "f***ing broke down and hyperventilated" when filming wrapped for the last time on Game of Thrones .

The actor, who plays Jon Snow in the fantasy epic, says it was all too much to handle when the hit HBO show came to an end.

The eighth and final series kicked off today, leaving both fans and stars feeling a little emotional.

These six episodes, as the characters battle is out for the Iron Throne and face the Night King, will be the last ever.

And Kit says taking off his costume for the last time felt like "being skinned".

He told Esquire : "My final day of shooting, I felt fine… I felt fine… I felt fine… then I went to do my last shots and started hyperventilating a bit.

"Then they called 'Wrap!' and I just f***ing broke down. It was this onslaught of relief and grief about not being able to do this again. It wasn't so much about Jon. It was about not being in this world, not getting to smell those smells, fight those fights, be with these people – the whole package."

He added: "But the weirdest bit was when we came off set and they started taking the costume off and it felt like being skinned. It felt like they were unceremoniously, for the last time, ripping off this character."

Kit says he told the costume department to wait so he good "say goodbye" to Jon Snow properly.


Meanwhile, Kit's co-star Sophie Turner left fans terrified she'd given away a huge spoiler about her character Sansa Stark.

The actress, 23, shared a behind the scenes picture from her time filming the final series, and it all went a bit wrong.

In the picture, Sophie is lying down with her eyes closed and her mouth slightly open, and some fans became convinced that she'd given away that her character dies.

One commented: "You definitely look dead here but okay"

"DOES THIS MEAN THAT SANSA IS GONNA DIE," another asked.

While one wrote: "OMG Sansa dies!"

Another said: "Girl if this is a pic of you dead on set I’m blocking you! Don’t play with me"

And another asked: "Is this a spoiler ???"

But fear not, Sophie is just sleeping in the pic as she rests in between takes on a long day of shooting.

She captioned the snap: "In honour of the final season of Thrones premiering tonight …. Here’s a picture of me asleep on set."
