We’re not ready to say goodbye to Game of Thrones — and it seems that none of the cast was ready, either. At least, that’s the feeling we get from Kit Harington’s recent comments in an interview with BBC Radio 2 earlier this week. During the interview, Harington opened up about the speech he made to his GoT costars at the wrap party and got a bit reflective about his time on the hit TV show.
As reported by Bustle, Harington spoke during the interview about the intensely emotional wrap party speech he gave to his costars in June.
“It’s just been this amazing journey,” Harington stated. “I kinda said to them on my wrap speech that it’s always been more than a job. They were a family and it was my life. I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been quite emotional all last week thinking about having finished it.”
We’ve been getting hints that season eight is absolutely going to destroy GoT fans, but Harington — a seemingly sentimental man himself — has now managed to make us dread the series finale. If he and his costars weren’t ready to say goodbye, what chance do fans have?
While details about season eight have remained under lock and key, we do have some sweet photos posted by other GoT stars to commemorate the series’ wrap-up.
Maisie Williams recently posted a photo on her Instagram that showed white sneakers with blood on them. Her caption: “Goodbye Belfast. Goodbye Arya. Goodbye Game of Thrones. What a joy I’ve had. Here’s to the adventures to come. #lastwomanstanding #barely #immasleepforthenextfouryears #justkiddingidontsleep.”

We’re so not ready to say goodbye to GoT now. Thank goodness we have until summer 2019 to stock up on tissues and emotionally prepare.
