Kit Harington became a household name as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones and for the actor, life was never the same again! When it comes to the final season of GOT, we see Jon Snow leading the Free Folk back to the true North, as punishment for killing the Khaleesi. It was an ending debated by diehard fans; whether it was justified for the King in the North, who, in the past, did so much for his people. Before season 8, Jon was considered the most likely to get the Iron Throne, but such was not the case!

But how did Kit feel about Jon's ending in Game of Thrones? Harington revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he loved the end and that it made him cry. However, what really got him emotional was seeing "End of Game of Thrones," in the script. "But as far as an ending for Jon Snow, this character that I loved for so many years and had grown so close to, and had meant so much to me … seeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free. Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending," the actor shared.

Furthermore, Kit confessed that while Snow had done a horrible thing of killing the love of his life, Daenerys Targaryen and it pained him to do so, "the actual ending for him was finally being released."
