“It’s been an institution longer than any other institution I’ve been in. School, drama school, anything," he explained. "I get a bit weepy thinking about it. It’s going to be a strange year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person. Not only you’re attached to it, loads of people around the world are attached to it.”
Harington's final goodbye to GOT is still years away -- the eighth season won't air until 2019. And just because they're wrapping up, doesn't mean the critically-acclaimed series will be loosening up on security.
“[I was told], ‘Don’t tell them you’re filming. Don’t take pictures in Belfast. Don’t do all of that,'” Harington shared. “It’s on lockdown!”
One cast member Harington won't have to say goodbye to is Rose Leslie, as the pair, who starred as love interests from seasons two through four, recently announced they are engaged.
