Kit Harington wants to work with Sophie Turner again, wonders if people will always see them as Jon and Sansa
'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the HBO mega-series, revealed that he would love to work with his castmate Sophie Turner once again on another project. The popular fantasy series will come to an end after its final eighth season.
Harington has now said that that he would like to re-team with Turner who plays Sansa Stark on the show. In the last episode of season seven, it was revealed that Jon Snow and Sansa Stark are related by blood.
Harington shared with People magazine, "I'm always going to be very fond of it. It's hard to remember who any of the cast members were 10 years ago."
However, he believes that some fans may have an issue with him and Turner having any sort of other equation on the screen. "You know, I’d love to work with Sophie [Turner] on something, but are people only going to see Jon and Sansa? It’s gonna be hard to get away from that. I’d love to work with Rose, but we’re married and we played these lovers, so are we ever going to get to do that?" Harington shared.
"A lot in my actual life hasn’t changed. Not my relationships with my family or parents; I hope they’re very similar to what they were. It defines a decade of my life—and that will probably be the most bizarre decade of my life," he continued.
It was on this very show that Harington met his wife Rose Leslie who played the role of a woman named Ygritte.
Recently, Harington revealed that his favorite scene with his wife was the one where she tragically passed away in his arms while a bloody battle goes on around them. "I liked her death. I know, it sounds bizarre. I thought she nailed that. And it’s the first time in Thrones that slow motion was used and I think it’s a beautiful, cradling moment as this battle is raging in the background. It was one of those incredible shots," Harington added.
The couple initially sparked relationship rumors in 2012 but ended up splitting up. They officially confirmed that they were dating in 2016 and ended up getting engaged the following year. The former costars got married in 2018.
