Last night, while they were still in New York City after the premiere, Kit Harington and Conleth Hill were guests on a few late night talk shows, where both joked around and discussed the premiere, the final season ahead, and the Thrones life now behind them.
At The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Harington talks about the mix of excitement and terror at his upcoming host role in Saturday Night Live, the tired “You know nothing, Jon Snow” jokes, the time he wore a Jon Snow costume to a party, and more.
