British actor Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, said that his character's world as he knows it will come crashing down on him in the season finale.
Come April 14, after almost two years, the last and final season of Game of Thrones will air. With just a month to the premiere, the buzz around the show is at an all-time high. Earlier this month, Entertainment Weekly shared pictures of several principle characters and HBO dropped the trailer for the film on Tuesday.
Ever since the trailer was unveiled, fans have been wondering how the series will end. At least now we know one thing: Jon Snow is in love. James Hibberd, the editor of Entertainment Weekly, on Monday, had tweeted to reveal that one of the favorite characters in Game of Thrones has fallen in love. He quoted Kit Harington in his tweet (who plays Jon Snow on the show): ‘The end of the world might be coming soon, but at least he’s in love with somebody and knows who he is’.

As soon as the trailer aired, fans on social media were full of questions. There were questions like why is Arya afraid, why is Cersei sipping wine and who was that zombie animal at the end.
The new season premieres on April 14 and will have six episodes of 60 and 90 minutes runtimes.
