“Game of Thrones” debuted in 2011 and became a phenomenal success for HBO (which is owned by CNN’s parent company).
It also made Harington a star — so much so that his character was “killed” off, then brought back — and linked him with co-star Rose Leslie, whom he wed in June.
But despite all that, Harington sounds like he has truly bid good-bye to Westeros and its inhabitants.
“It was a huge emotional upheaval leaving that family,” he said. “But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life.”
