Kit Harington says not knowing how ‘Game of Thrones’ will end is amazing
Ready to see Kit Harington play a different kind of unlikely hero? Only this time, there are no dragons, dire wolves, or White Walkers in sight.
The “Game of Thrones” star has a key role in “Brimstone,” the bleak, violent and uncompromising Western from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. The film slowly, over the course of four in-film “chapters,” unveils the grim circumstances in which a young, mute frontier midwife and mother (Dakota Fanning) finds herself the target of an obsessed and unrelenting fire-and-brimstone preacher (Guy Pearce). Harington plays Samuel, a wounded cowboy running from trouble, who receives shelter from the 14-year-old Liz (Emilia Jones) and leaves a lasting mark on the girl as her life descends into horror.
Once again, Harington treads into territory that unflinchingly explores violence, brutality, and their aftereffects, much like the HBO fantasy series he’s best known for. After wrapping filming on the upcoming seventh season, he admits that he’s still marveling on how the show has moved forward so strongly, without a new volume in the epic A Song of Ice and Fire” series to shape it.
Moviefone: “Brimstone” is quite an amazing piece of filmmaking, and I imagine it was a very easy “yes” for you to get involved. But what were the specific motivators for you? What were the things you saw in the character and in the story that really got you excited creatively?
Kit Harington: I’ll be honest: I read the script a while before I joined it. Then, as sometimes happens, the role went to someone else. It went to Robert Pattinson. I kind of put it to bed in my head. Then whatever happened happened, and I came aboard very late.
I think first and foremost, I really wanted this role from the get-go because the script was so strong. It was so interesting. It was so surreal. It wasn’t really specific to any kind of genre.
Earlier today HBO aired a long drawn out reveal of the seventh season air date teasing the meeting of ice and fire. It will return to our screens on 16.07.17 and a day later in the UK on 17.07.17 on Sky Atlantic. Sky have also confirmed that they again will be screening it simultaneously with America at 2am and again at the usual time of 9pm. 4 months, 9 days to go!
HBO have released the first official poster for the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones. By the looks of things like many fanmade posters have predicted, it could literally be a Song of Ice and Fire. Hopefully this means the that the trailer or some teaser clips won’t be far behind. #TheEndBegins #ReadyTheRealm!
The nominations for this years Critics Choice have been released and I’m so pleased to say that Kit has received his second nomination of the year for Game of Thrones in the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama series category. The 22nd annual Critics Choice Awards airs on A&E live on December 11 at 8pm ET, 5pm PT. Due to filming season 7 it is not known if Kit will attend but I will edit this post when I know otherwise. Game of Thrones has also been nominated for Best Drama series

Due to filming currently taking place outside, the internet is dark and full of spoilers and I for one do not want to be one of the sites that unintentionally spoils those who wish to remain completely spoiler free. I have now watermarked the thumbnails of those on set images that contain spoilers so the albums are safe to view for everyone. An example of what they look like can be seen below thanks to my friend Kaci who took the time to design it for me. Should you wish to see the bigger image (that will be watermark free) it will be your choice whether to proceed and view. I hope I will be doing the best thing by all visitors of the site.
Several sets of images from the production of S7 have been added to the gallery and they do include potential spoilers so view them at your own discretion. Kit can be seen filming alongside Liam Cunningham (and other cast members who shall remain anonymous for those who wish to stay spoiler free) in several locations in Spain
For those of you who are active on social media please beware that there have been huge leaks which I am told contain details of specific episode content. Whether they are true or not is another matter but if you don’t wish to be spoiled just a warning to be careful on which links you access
A few hours ago HBO have confirmed whilst present at the TCA’s that season 8 of (lets face it everyones favourite show) will be its last. No word yet as to how many episodes it will contain but by the sounds of things it won’t have the usual 10 that we have all been used to, following suit of the announcement made for season 7.
New HBO programming president Casey Bloys met the press Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour and the first question he fielded was about the future of the HBO fantasy drama. The executive also confirmed that yes, the plan is for the yet-to-be announced eighth season of the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama to be its last.
HBO most recently renewed the drama for a shortened seventh season — consisting of seven episodes — and producers have noted that they envision a total of 75 episodes of the series as a whole. Through season six, the show has produced 60 episodes. Bloys reiterated that an episode count for the eighth season — which is all but a formality — has yet to be determined but noted that conversations for a spinoff remain on the table.
“We’ve talked about it,” he said. “It’s not something I’m opposed to but it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure the guys can wrap their heads around it when they are about to start production. We’re open to it; the guys aren’t opposed to it but there’s no concrete plans right now.”
Game of Thrones ranks as HBO’s most-watched — and longest-running — series. The recently concluded sixth season wrapped with an average of 25 million total viewers across multiple plays, DVR and non-linear viewing.
With the arrival of winter on the series, production will be delayed and the series, which typically bows in March or April, will not return until next summer.
HBO have released a new blooper reel from this seasons Game of Thrones (and Kit still can’t wink)
