Watch: Kit Harington Promises Big "Game of Thrones" Finale!

Jon Snow + Khaleesi = GOT's OTP?!

Though they've never met, let alone have been in the same land at the same time, Game of Thrones' fan-favorite characters Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) have quite the vocal fan base rooting for them to hook up and ultimately rule from the Iron Throne together when the war in Westeros comes to an end. (We're not going to lie, we'd be OK with this!)

So what does Kit Harington think of the Jon and Dany shippin' going down in the GOT fandom?

He thinks it's "wonderful"!


"I find it wonderful that people root for anyone," Harington told E! News at the New York City screening of his highly anticipated new animated flick, How to Train Your Dragon 2. "I think it's great in the show pick their favorites and want that person to win, and it's wonderful to be involved in that and be one of the people that people think should be on the throne at the end."

And the chances of Jon Snow being on the Iron Throne by series' end are looking pretty good, considering Harington revealed to us that he makes it through Sunday's finale alive. Phew! "I go off and start filming in late July for Thrones' season five," he spilled.

But that doesn't mean fans shouldn't be nervous heading into the season-four finale, which Harington teased is "going to be a bit of an impact episode." 

Of course, we also had to ask Harington about GOT's latest shocking death (Spoiler alert!): Ygritte, Jon's Wildling love interest, played by Rose Leslie. Watch our interview with Harington above to hear all about filming the pair's heartbreaking final scene. 

Game of Thrones' finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
