Kit Harington plays his own ancestor in BBC drama Gunpowder

He says it was really important that they kept the drama as historically accurate as possible, which means there are some violent scenes.

He added, "It's going to be a odd year saying goodbye to everyone and having last scenes with this person and that person". Any hints about Season 8, Kit?

He continued: "I get a bit weepy thinking about it". He catapulted himself to fame on the back of his portrayal of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones and pretty much everything that he has appeared in since has gone onto be a massive hit - so it shouldn't be surprising that his latest effort, Gunpowder, is wowing audiences on the BBC.

One viewer labelled an execution scene in Gunpowder "grotesque and completely unnecessary", while another called it "one of the most painful things I've ever witnessed on TV".

While the HBO fantasy drama is one of the biggest television shows in the entire world now, the 30-year-old actor claims the producers' original attempt at episode one was a disaster. He and former GoT cast member Rose Leslie recently announced their engagement. "You have to remember that eight years of it - no one really cares about it more than us".

Of course, no documentation of the lead-up to the foiled plot can gloss over what stirred its conspirators to act: the brutal, gruesome sectarian violence that took place at the time targeting Catholics, who were seen as traitors - owing their allegiance more to the Pope than to the King. "You can tell that because we've got directors who have been in charge of some of the most huge set pieces in the past doing episodes all throughout the season".

Game of Thrones season eight is in production now and the cast have had the scripts, though are sworn to secrecy. Don't take pictures in Belfast.

But you can't sit down with Kit and not ask about Game of Thrones, the role that will stay with him for the rest of his career.
