Actor Kit Harington says he has “no desire” to continue playing his “Game of Thrones” role of Jon Snow.
The 31-year-old actor, who has played the part in seven seasons of the HBO’s epic fantasy show, said he will be done with the character after the upcoming season eight, according to metro.co.uk.
“I have no desire to go back and do any more of that show… I have such a fond place in my heart for that show. For a good months afterwards I just burst into tears randomly. I can’t think of a better job to have in your 20s than to play Jon Snow,” Harington said at Esquire Townhouse.
During the interview, the actor also revealed that he has not told his wife and former co-star Rose Leslie anything about the show’s end.
“I chose not to tell (Rose). It’s quite exciting walking around knowing no one knows. For this I was like I’m not telling anyone. I don’t think she’s guessed it right yet,” he said.
