Kit Harington says ‘Game Of Thrones’ gets ‘very dark before it gets better’

The actor has made some guesses at what might happen next

Kit Harington has warned fans Game Of Thrones gets “very dark before it gets better”.

The actor, who has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmys, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about what’s to come for his character Jon Snow and the rest of the cast.

“It’s important to stress at this point that I haven’t had any scripts, so this is all guess work for me,” he said. “I think it’s going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending.

“If there’s any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else. I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that’s going to be exciting to see.”

He added that he didn’t know what “winter is finally here” meant in relation to the storyline “I think with the whole “winter is finally here” business, it means everyone is going to have a really bad time,” he said.

Season seven of Game Of Thrones is expected to air in summer 2017, with the final season showing in 2018.

Game of Thrones returns for season 7 on HBO in the summer of 2017.
