The Game Of Thrones season 8 teaser featured the Stark siblings in the crypts under Winterfell and it turns out that Kit Harington, took home the stone statue of himself from the crypts of Winterfell. In an interview with Zoe Ball on her BBC radio show the British actor disclosed that he was hanging onto the ominous memento.
“I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt? I kept it,” he said. “They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed. How sad is that? I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am. I’m going to turn it into a water feature.”
The statue appears in a teaser for the eighth season which landed last weekend. In it we see Jon Snow carrying a flaming torch down a tunnel in the underground crypt at Winterfell before being joined by Sansa and Arya.
At the end of the corridor they stand confronting each other with statues of fallen family members Ned Stark, Catelyn Stark, and Lyanna Stark (Jon’s real mother)—before arriving at their own graves.
In the same interview Harington also confessed that he wasn’t fully pleased with the ending but felt contented with it. “Hopefully it’ll change TV again like it did originally” he said.
If not at least he’s got the statue of him to remember the good times. Watch the video below:
