Kit Harington’s Emotional Farewell Speech To GoT Will Have You Sobbing

“I feel like my heart is breaking.”

It's the first Monday without Game of Thrones. 

If you were like us, you spent all day waiting anxiously for 5 pm so you can run home to watch the documentary. 

Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, available to stream on Foxtel, is a two-hour long feature doco about making the final season.

It's no secret that it will be filled with some tear-jerking moments. We mean, if us fans cried like babies when the series ended, imagine how the people who are actually in it felt. 

We’ve been on this journey with the cast and crew and are emotionally invested in everything. EG: The Red Wedding was not a good day. We’ve never been the same since. 

Kit Harington was reduced to tears when he addressed the cast and crew after filming his last scene in  Northern Ireland:

“I feel like my heart is breaking.

“I love this show more than, I think, anything.

“It has never been a job for me. It’s been my life and this will always be the greatest thing I’ll ever do.

“You are my family. I love you’s.”

It wasn't the first time he felt emotional saying goodbye to GoT. Harington's emotions got the better of him during the first script read for season eight, where he realises his character, Jon Snow kills Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.

Harington pre warned us that he "blubbed his eyes out" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this year before GoT season eight aired.

“We did have a table read through and I was the one person who hadn’t read the episodes. Everyone else had had them like three days before and read them. I think I told everyone I didn't want to know what happened, but really it was just laziness.

“The writers used me as a litmus test to see my reactions to things as the events unfolded, and they got some pretty good reactions. At the very end I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”
