Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke crashes Kit Harington's SNL monologue

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington had a difficult time fielding questions during his Saturday Night Live opening monologue, considering the only thing anyone wanted to know was how the show ended.

That included his own co-stars Emilia Clarke and John Bradley, who made a surprise visit to the SNL studio. Clarke asked if Harington could at least offer “a sense of how it ends”.

When the Jon Snow actor pointed out that she, indeed, was also in the show, Clarke replied: “Well, yeah, but I forgot. It’s been so damn long since the last season, plus a lot of my scenes are talking to a dragon, which is just a tennis ball on a green pole. I have no idea what’s actually happening.”

She then asked if he remembered when they had sex back in season six (in reality the scene happens in season seven). “Did you know they filmed that?” she added.

Bradley then stood up to ask what happened to his character, Samwell Tarly, as “they only let me see two pages of the script and all my character says is, ‘Arhhhh.’”

Rose Leslie, who starred in the show as Yrgitte and is also married to Harington, wasn’t so concerned with how the show ends because “I’m not a nerd.”

“My question is, what are we going to do for money now?” she said. “We didn’t save anything, and you kept telling me, ‘Oh I’m the King of the North, we can order UberEats every night.”

The final season of Game of Thrones reaches TV screens 14 April. The show will be available on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK. Read everything you need to know about the forthcoming season here.
