Game of Thrones: Kit Harington was also shocked Jon Snow didn’t kill the Night King


The way the dreaded Night King was sent in the final season of Game of Thrones came as a surprise not only to fans, but to the Kit Harington star as well. According to co-star Maisie Williams, whose beloved character Arya Stark ended up being the hero who defeated the villainous Ice Lord, Harington spent seasons believing that the fate of the Night King belonged to Jon Snow.[Harington] Expecting it to go in that direction too, and he even said, “It was going to go in that direction.” Someone told me in season three that I was going to kill the Night King. “And then he read the script, and it was Arya the whole time,” Williams laughed. “Yeah, I think it would’ve been too obvious. I’m glad it’s Arya, honestly. I think I had the best script of the last season. “

Every character confirmed for new Fox Mutants movie

Williams is currently staring in Disney’s The Mutants, which has finally found a theatrical release after years of delay and then postponement due to COVID. Our review of The New Mutants says it’s an “entertaining, albeit sometimes worded on a small scale, genre film” that didn’t deserve to be put on shelves for so long.Meanwhile, Game of Thrones executive producers DB Weiss and David Benioff have decided on their next project, teaming up with Rian Johnson for a Netflix series inspired by Liu Cixin’s award-winning book trilogy The Three-Body Problem ( Remembrance of Earth’s Past).
