‘GoT’ Graduate Kit Harington Calls ‘House of the Dragon’ Spin-Off ‘Weird’

Kit Harington has nothing but praise for the Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon.

“I’m really enjoying it,” the Eternals star told the Hollywood Reporter. “My friend Miguel [Sapochnik] show runs, so I’m really enjoying it.”

Harington, 35, starred as Jon Snow in the acclaimed HBO drama series Game of Thrones from 2011 to 2019 and recently praised the new show for its individuality and clever connection to the previous series.

“It’s weird to start a whole new show in the same kind of space and make it its own thing,” Harington added, “and I think they really did.”

While Sapochnik has stepped down as showrunner for Season 2 of House of the Dragon, he will continue to serve as executive producer.

“Working in the ‘Thrones’ universe over the last few years has been an honor and privilege, especially spending the last two years with the amazing cast and crew of ‘House of the Dragon,'” Sapochnik said in a statement last month . “I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished with Season 1 and overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response from our viewers.”

Sapochnik even directed several episodes of Game of Thrones during its eight seasons. Harington will be returning to the GoT world with his own Jon Snow sequel series in the foreseeable future. “Yes, there is a Jon Snow show in development,” wrote writer and “GoT” creator George RR Martin on his blog, adding that the working title for the program is simply “SNOW.”

Based on Martin’s book Fire & Blood, House of the Dragon is set 200 years before the events of GoT. The series follows the trials and tribulations of House Targaryen – the ancestors of Daenerys and Jon Snow.

The ensemble cast for the new show includes the talents of Matt Smith, Graham McTavish, Rhys Ifan, Milly Alcock, Steve Toussaint and Paddy Considine.

While Thrones fans know how much sex and bloody gore is part of the franchise, Dragon viewers are still shocked by the amount of NSFW scenes that appear on screen.

Even Smith – who plays Daemon Targaryen – feels the 10-episode series has too many intimate scenes.

“You keep asking yourself, ‘Do we need one more sex scene?'” the ‘Doctor Who’ star recently told Rolling Stone. “Yes – a little too much if you ask me.”
