Kit Harington played Jon Snow in Game Of Thrones for eight seasons. After spending nearly a decade immersing himself in Westeros, he’ll soon see a whole new generation of actors follow in his footsteps in Dragon house, the Game Of Thrones The HBO prequel show is filming. As Harington recently told Insider, the experience can cause “a bit of pain.”
“There is an emotion related to that for me,” he said. “I think seeing people put on outfits and costumes that look like what we’ve worn all these years and have the same music, style and tone, but without being there… there’s going to be a rawness there. “
According to his interview with Insider, Harington is still considering watching the show and supporting Miguel Sapochnik, one of his showrunners. “Of course I’m going to watch it and I’m going to support Miguel, who’s running the show, and I wish them all the best,” he said. “It’s so close to my heart, this story, that of course it might be a little painful there.
Sapochnik led Harington in Game Of Thrones episodes like “Hardhome”, “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Long Night”. He and Ryan Condal are the showrunners of House of the Dragon.
Dragon house will have “a different tone” for Game Of Thrones
Dragon house will take place hundreds of years before Jon Snow was born, in an epic conflict called the Dance of the Dragons that pits different members of the Targaryen family (and their dragons) against each other. Harington is right that he will have similarities with Game Of Thrones– how could he not? – although Sapochnik himself said he will have a “different tone”.
Dragon house will premiere on HBO and HBO Max in 2022. In the meantime, you can see Harington as Dane Whitman / the Black Knight in Eternals, a Marvel movie hitting theaters on November 5.
