Kit Harington: in filming the final Game of Thrones episodes, “there’s a certain pressure I’ve not felt before”
“Whereas before, every year there’s always been a bit of pressure, this season is one where we could easily let people down,” he says after filming several weeks of the final season. “Obviously, we don’t want to do that so we’re very much stepping up everyone’s game which is very apparent, at least to me. We’re all growing a bit and I think everyone’s attention is very focused on what we’re doing in a way that it’s always been, but it may be more apparent.” ALSO: Scientists try to model the Game of Thrones climate.

Game of Thrones alum Stephen Dillane had no idea what was going on — and now he regrets his performance
“I’ve flicked (the show) on (since leaving) to see if I could figure out what was going on, but I couldn’t,” the Stannis Baratheon actor tells The Times of London. “Liam Cunningham is so passionate about the show. He invests in it in a way I think is quite moving, but it wasn’t my experience. I was entirely dependent on Liam to tell me what the scenes were about — I didn’t know what I was doing until we’d finished filming and it was too late. The damage had been done. I thought no one would believe in me and I was rather disheartened by the end. I felt I’d built the castle on non-existent foundations.”

Kit Harington says he was wrong to say he experienced sexism
In an interview last year, the Game of Thrones star described having to take his shirt off as “a sexism that happens towards men.” In a new interview, Harington says: “I was wrong there, though.

“We had the read-through last week, in fact, so I know everything now,” Harington said on today’s edition of Britain’s The One Show, unknowingly debunking co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's absurd claim (or joke) that actors aren’t getting scripts and that they would receive their lines via earpieces. Harington admitted that he got emotional during the read-through, saying: "I cried at the end! It wasn't anything particular that happens.” Harington also says he can't wait to chop off his locks when the show is done, so he won't be asked about them anymore.

Game of Thrones is like an impatient chess player who’s suddenly abandoned the rules
Jacob Brogan says the show's recent issues — such as the incoherent relationship between time and place — speak to GoT’s larger problem: “its inability to find a balance between its complex political maneuverings and the more familiar framework of heroic fantasy. In its early years, the series used the former to undermine the latter’s familiar progression—as it did when it killed off honorable patriarch Ned Stark—but those same tropes now threaten to overwhelm everything that once made the show compelling.” PLUS: An unauthorized GoT stage musical is coming to NYC, GoT seems to favor young beautiful women while older women don’t stand chance, why Jon Snow is a terrible leader, what the heck happened to Arya Stark?, the HBO hackers have revealed the Season 7 finale, do critics even matter when it comes to Game of Thrones?, Kit Harington looks like a young George R.R. Martin, and the recent complaints make Martin the real winner of Season 7.
