The last episode of Game of Thrones has divided opinion, hasn’t it? Some have said it’s the best of all, while others have totally slated it.
However, Kit Harington, who played one of the show’s main characters, Jon Snow, has hit back at GoT haters
In an interview, with Esquire he said: “How I feel about the show right now is quite defiant.
“I think no matter what anyone thinks about this season – and I don’t mean to sound mean about critics here – but whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go fuck themselves.”
He continued: “I know how much work was put into this. I know how much people cared about this. I know how much pressure people put on themselves and I know how many sleepless nights working or otherwise people had on this show. Because they cared about it so much. Because they cared about the characters. Because they cared about the story. Because they cared about not letting people down.”
Obviously, it’s unlikely to make a difference, what with season 8 having aired already – and Kit says in no uncertain terms that he doesn’t care if people aren’t pleased.
He further added: “Now if people feel let down by it, I don’t give a fuck – because everyone tried their hardest. That’s how I feel. In the end, no one’s bigger fans of the show than we are, and we’re kind of doing it for ourselves. That’s all we could do, really. And I was just happy we got to the end.”
Kit is not the only one who is pissed by the stupid opinions. Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, has had her say on the petitions too.
“I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season. Like, 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.”
