Unless you've been living under a gigantic Game of Thrones rock, you know exactly who Kit Harington is. Many people know more about his most famous character, Jon Snow, than the actual man who portrays him.

Harington is the 32-year-old British hunk has portrayed the ridiculously attractive Lord Commander of the Night's Watch on HBO's iconic fantasy series for almost ten years now.

It's getting increasingly difficult to imagine him playing anyone other than Snow, guarding the Wall and taking down the dangerous White Walkers. Not to mention falling in love with powerful women like Ygritte and Daenerys Targaryen.

Harington owes a lot to The Snow Show, including his wife. He fell in love on set with Rose Leslie, who played his on-screen lover Ygritte, a feisty wildling.

With the premiere of GOT's season eight fast approaching, Jon Snow's watch will soon end, but what's next for the actor?

As dismayed as we are at the prospect of losing Snow, Harington himself is ready to hang up the cloak; 

"I'd like to step away and enjoy the obscurity, cut my hair, make myself less recognisable as the character, and go do and some other things with a completely new look and tone," Harington told Entertainment Weekly.

He added, "I can't go into my next role looking the same. This role was brilliant, but I'll need to get rid of Jon Snow."

Harington underwent several roles outside the world of Westeros, starring in Pompeii, Brimstone and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan between 2014 and 2018.

The actor doesn't currently have any roles lined up after GOT airs the final season from April, with six lengthier episodes. Kit admitted that filming the final season was intensely gruelling.

Despite the fewer episode count, it took almost a full year in Belfast to film the last season of the successful franchise, with every episode the length of one movie.

It took 55 nights to film one Army of the Dead scene, so you'd 100 percent need a break after something like that.

"The last season of Thrones seemed to be designed to break us," he told GQ Australia. "Everyone was broken at the end. I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f*cking tiring."

Harington returned to his theatre roots last November, co-starring with Johnny Flynn in London's West End premiere of Sam Shepard's True West. 

The show will run until February, and tells the tale of two brothers who are trying to sell movie scripts to the same Hollywood producer.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World have also enlisted Harington for his voice acting skills for the final part of the film trilogy. The GOT alumni voices Eret, who he also voiced in the 2014 sequel.

You definitely won't be seeing him in the Game of Thrones prequel, that's for sure. He shut that one down pretty quickly, telling the BBC;

"It was a huge emotional upheaval leaving that family. But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life."

Darn it, we just can't get enough of Jon Snow. He may know nothing, but he's everything to us Game of Thrones fangirls, isn't he?

Kit Harington has some intriguing information, to say the least. He KNOWS THINGS we don't; namely the Game of Thrones ending.

One of the biggest kept secrets in the entire universe, Kit has been carrying around some absolute bombs for months, and his poor wife has now been victim to the biggest one of all.

Jon Snow and Ygritte were (ARE) Game of Thrones' most tragic couple, and the real-life husband and wife are both highly invested in the show.

They're one of the cutest celebrity couples in the business, especially because their love onscreen was SO DAMN PALPABLE.

Harington has thanked the show in the past for bringing them together, speaking of how he fell in love with Rose after filming with her in Iceland.

During a radio appearance earlier in the week, Kit revealed the tension which still resides between him and his wife over the show…

Rose is a major Game of Thrones fan, considering her past role in the show. Naturally, she was curious about how the show ends, most likely since her husband is now smooching the Mother of Dragons. 

She asked her hubby how she show ends, and he (stupidly) indulged her questions. BIG mistake, Kit.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he said, “I told my wife last year how it ended, and she wouldn’t talk to me for about three days…and she’d asked!”

We're not quite sure if her reaction means that the ending is happy or tragic, but we're assuming tragic. George R. R. Martin and the showrunners are cruel men, they kill off everyone we love.

Kit Harington previously said he was satisfied with the iconic HBO series' ending, but refused to say if he was happy or sad about it. So it's 100 percent sad.

We're fairly sure Jon Snow isn't the only person to let slip TV's mother of all secrets. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, also told her nearest and dearest the ending too.

Would you tell your significant other, or parents, the finale spoilers? We probably would, TBH.
