The 'Gunpowder actor,' who plays the role of Jon Snow said that leaving the show will be 'liberating' as he's currently unable to work on other projects because of filming commitments.
"It will be liberating, just the thought of having a whole year free - you shoot for six months, but half of the projects you might want to do will have started shooting before that six months is over," Harington told Digital Spy.
The 30-year-old actor said that there are a lot of things he can't do, so he is looking forward the drama series to finish as eight years is the right amount of time.
"I wouldn't want it to go on any longer than it has. I have other ideas I'd like to look at producing," he added. (ANI)
