Channel 4 News host Jon Snow has posted a picture of himself with Game Of Thrones actor Kit Harrington, who plays the character of Jon Snow on the hit US show.

The namesakes met for an interview which will be aired at 6:45pm on Channel 4 tomorrow night (April 26). Snow posted the image, which you can see below, on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Game Of Thrones director Alex Graves recently claimed that the finale of series four will be the “episode to end all episodes”.

Graves said that executive producers David Benioff and DB Weiss had a huge ending planned to the HBO fantasy drama’s current season. “Episode 10 of the season is, you know, as David and Dan will tell you, it’s the first true finale they’ve ever done and it’s really the episode to end all episodes. It’s the largest episode they’ve ever made,” he said.

It was revealed earlier this month that Game Of Thrones has been renewed for a further two seasons. The show, which is adapted from George RR Martin’s series of fantasy novels A Song Of Ice And Fire, has been a huge hit since premiering in 2011 and has won numerous television gongs including Golden Globes, Baftas and Emmys.
